Per my bowhunter class... the Rage 2 blades are legal, but the Rage 3 blade is NOT....

And, a "barbed' mechanical head is OK as long as the blades don't lock open - if they will fold when pulled they are not technically 'barbed'.

I was shooting Grim Reapers for awhile then last year I switched to Shwaackers, for no other reason than I liked the name! Killed three deer with them last year. Huge hole, ton of bleeding, and fly great! I got the 2" version this year , we'll see.
I must also say I had no questionable hits which is the true test of a broadhead. And I hope I don't have to test them like that.

100 grain thunderheads. Why take chances!
I shot thunderhead 125's for 15 years atleast, loved em ! Then i got a new bow and when it came time to practice with my broadheads the thunderheads were drifting all over the place outside 35 yrds. I tuned , then re-tuned, tried lineing the blades with the fletching, then offset, tried some helical in the fletch and still had the same problem. It was the hardest thing for me to put the thunderheads away and go to a mechanical. That was 3 bows ago and Ive had such success with other heads that I just never went back.

I agree the thunderhead is a time proven killing machine , and it may have just not agreed with that particular bow, who knows maybe it was me.
