I normally donít say much about products that I use but I shoot a Mathews Z7 70 pound draw with spot hog hunter sights QAD rest. I have always shot muzzy 125 grain broad heads until this year. I have shot 8 deer with them and lost only 1 of them. They have broken bone and keep going. They were truly bad to the bone. I canít say anything but good about muzzy. I changed my arrows to carbon express maximum hunters and I did not have time to tune my bow with them. So I went and bought the 2 blade rage chisel tip and they shot just like my field points so that was a plus. So Saturday I went hunting and this doe stepped out at 42 yards. I had a perfect broad side shot. There was a smaller deer in front of her and I had to shoot over her. I hit her a little further back than I was aiming about 3 inches to tell you the truth. When I released the arrow she was looking away and never knew the arrow was coming. I watched the arrow disappear in her side and then she run off. I let her lay for nearly 2 hour before looking for her. She went about 35 or 40 yards at the most. When I looked at the shot I realized I hit her a little back then I flipped her over and saw the exit hole and was amazed at the damage that rage did. I could not believe she went down as fast as she did with the shot I made on her. I will continue to shoot a rage broad head and donít plan on switching back to muzzy. Rage is truly a awesome broad head. The Rage Company is truly advertising actual results not myths. I can say I may lose a deer shot with a rage but it will take a really bad shot to do so.
