Who on here uses them or has any thoughts on them? I ordered some for my crossbow. It's the 100gr. with the Orange slipcams.

I used one...once. Luckily saw the deer fall, but no blood until the last 10 feet. No ďlooking like an axeĒ went through it either. The blades were deployed once I picked up the arrow, but the entry and exit wounds didnít reflect that. Could have been something I did, but I didnít want to chance it. Went to RamCats and havenít looked back.

I should say so. So you just set the blades in place, slip the orange disks in place as per instructions, and shoot?

I used one on a big buck this year he was standing broadside at 30 yards in the creek he was able to get 50 yards before he fell over ,when we butchered it there was no blood left in him worked awesome I was using my crossbow ,picked up the broad head and was able to use it again after hitting two ribs and rocks in the creek.there not magic but close to it.

I own a pack of them but have been nervous to use them due to some of the failures I have read or heard about. I end up using Muzzy or Boltcutter fixed blades instead! I did shoot a Rage through the rib cage of a processed deer and it fully deployed and cut a large channel through and through!

Ive killed 20+ deer with them and I have had nothing but excellent success with them. Wicked holes and awesome blood trails. That 2" hole leaves a little room for error too. Not sure what happened to the guys that have had bad experiences with them.

I was a fixed blade muzzy guy for a long time but made the switch to rage a few years ago and Iím glad I did. Seem to fly better and leave a very aggressive blood trail. Knock on wood I havenít had a mechanical issue yet

Switched this year to Qad exodus. Seemed to shoot as equal as field point and unbelievable penetration. I hit my buck at aquatering away angle and only the nick was sticking out. I do shoot a 32.5 draw though and 65 lbs in a Mathews. Like throwing a baseball bat but I was rather pleased vs mechanical. My dad uses the same in his crossbow. They fly true and are tough. Never really a fan of mechanicals as I have usually shot muzzy.

I've been shooting the Exodus broadheads for 6-7 years now. I have no need to switch.

I went to the darkside last year. 2-blade. For some reason, my bow really likes them. Group better than the 3-blade and as good as field tips. I also dont need to make any adjustment to switch between them. All 3 deer shot have died in sight or just out. Penetration depends on how solid i hit the ribs. Last buck missed all ribs in and out so was stuck in ground 2". First doe hit ribs going in and out and only exited by about 6 inches. Guess from where the arrow broke. I shoot about 64lbs. I also dont understand the issues folks have had. I did find that you need to watch them each time take out of quiver to nock. A blade can start to slip out of the collar. Just need to reseat it. Diligence can prevent a potential in-flight blade deployment.

I suppose if you shot enough deer, at many different angles, you'd inevitably find a few hits that aren't ideal even with adequate shot placement.

Do you still get a pass thru with mechanicals? Reason I ask, I thought I watched a video on a fixed blade vs mechanical with penetration
Iíve heard good things with a 2 blade fixed

Shot placement is more important than the head.

However there have been non deployment issues with them. 2 Friends & My d
Father. Have all used them. And at times had issues.

I use cut on impact Fixed

Have used them on a compound and more recently on my crossbow. Performance has been excellent. For my son and I,
as soon as we got over the fear of mechanicals,the step to Rage turned out great for us.
