    Do you like mechanical or fixed blade broadheads better?

    There's no doubt about it fixed all the way. 80% of lost animals come from mechanical broadheads.

      i use mechanicals because they cutter a bigger hole with my crossbow and so they go down faster.

        I have shot 6 arrows at deer since switching to the Rage 2 blade mechanical. Collected 5 deer including 2 ten point whitetails. Most fell within sight. Beware, there are mechanicals that do not perform as well. I switched when a deer was lost after a complete pass thru with a Wasp Jackhammer snd there was little blood. The Rage 2 blade cts a huge hole going in and out. Stevie Wonder could follow the blood trail. It also flies like a field point. If you go to my profile you can see the best of the two bucks.

          When I first started bow hunting I wasn't a fan of mechanical broadheads but for the past four years I have been using the Rage 3-Blade expandables and am thoroughly impressed with their performance. I don't trust the 'over the top' expandables however.

                Personally, I think the concept of fixed blades makes more since than mechanical, but after watching-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUBvkpqYuBc- and all the comments you guys made about rage it sounds like that's the way to go.

                    personaly i like fixed blades better because if you miss and it goes in a tree you can pull it out unlike with a mechanical its harder to pull out.

                      I would go with a fixed blade all the way. Mechanical blades are good, but they brake very easily. I would go with a stinger fixed blade.

                            I've been bowhunting for 30 years and have shot most broadheads on the market. I spent the entire season field testing the rage 3-blade for myself. I harvested 3 deer and one turkey with the rage 3 blade this year. I was very unhappy with the performance for several reasons. Stick with fixed blades. They are just as accurate, they pass straight thru the deers body leaving a large blood trial and will not open prematurely.

                              Fixed, untill you fall on to one of them, then i would prefer mechanical.
