    So I went out this evening for the first time and about 45 min before dark 2 does and some fawns walked out. After reading the fawn thread I really was tempted to stick bambie but a doe gave me the shot first. Anyways I drew back and shot, she was perfectly broadside at 23 yards I heard the stick and it looked good but I noticed she just was not bleeding like she should with the rage 3 blade flung at her. I had seen the videos and even helped track a few and knew the damage they could do but just did not look like it should when I seen her running through the field. Well of course I went and looked at the arrow and of course only one blade deployed the anger that went through me was scary. I did manage to find a small trail to look for in the morning. Needless to say I am now turning to either Montec or T3.

    I agree with 12 pointer on the muzzys. Ten years ago they was great. Anymore i think the fly like crap and arent near as durable. Im switching after this year

    Anything with the word mechanical can go wrong and often will. There is to many other things that can go wrong in a bowhunt to choose a rage. I have friends that use them and have awesome results and I have had friends ask me what fixed blades I use after a malfunction. I will always keep my thunderheads in the stand and wish the best of luck to other hunters and their equipment.

    Never had a muzzy fail me yet, so I never had a reason to try a rage. Always hear people braging on the big holes rage put in a deer and then several complain about not recovering thier deer also. Just nevet bought in to the mechanical brodhead craze.

    I know a lot of people are liking schawacker mechanicals. I guess I fall into the lazy bow hunter because of the lack of time I have with going to school and all. I am about to make the switch though I can't stand letting deer get away like that. I feel bad for wounding the animal more than anything of
    Course.

    Just my opinion but there is no way a fixed blade broadhead can fail if I do my part and thats why I will only used a fixed blade broadhead.

    I hunted with muzzys for years and liked them very well, still do but Id say the truest flying fixed blade Ive seen is Slick Trick and they are flat good broadheads..
