Usually when considering what broadhead to use I look to a few important characteristics to help in my purchasing decision: scary sharp blades, a stout and sturdy ferrule and a cutting diameter of at least one-inch. Typically, fixed blade broadheads have always dressed my hunting arrows. However, in the last few years I've branched out of my security setups and began experimenting with a number of mechanical operating heads. The most recent is the new Rage 2-Blade 100-grain broadhead. We all have heard of the benefits of mechanical heads and their field point performance characteristics; however, some never associate them with wide cutting diameters. The mechanical heads allow larger blades since wind planing isn't an issue and since blades normally are recessed into the ferrule or closed against it. The Rage 2-Blade owns an artery slicing two-inch cutting diameter, one of the largest in the industry. Rage's SlipCam Rear Blade Deployment System offers three advantages. The first is that it eliminates deflection on quartering shot angles. To accomplish this, the blades (when closed) are below the cut-on-contact tip assuring no premature opening of blades upon impact. Second, Rage guarantees that blades will fully deploy before entering, therefore maximizing the full two-inch cutting diameter. And third, Rage states that there is no loss of kinetic energy due to the two aforementioned characteristics. A bonus practice head is included in each three-pack. If you're a fan of three blade heads, look to the three-blade 100-grain Rage with 1.5-inch cutting diameter.
