    I used the Grims last year. Although I recovered both a buck and doe I shot with them I didn't get a complete pass through on either animal. The arrow did come out the back side on the buck about 4 inches. The exit hole was tiny. I don't see how anyone can argue the blades failed to deploy. I stopped using them after that. My local group I run with are all using the Killzones. We have taken a dozen plus deer collectively this year. The wound channels and blood trails have been outstanding with a 100% recovery rate. Most deer haven't made it 50 yards. The last doe I shot didn't make it more than 10.

    Go with the Killzone! IMO!

    It depends what you want. I like the fact that the kill zone will have a big entrance wound like the rage but unlike the grim reaper. IMO the kill zone is a better BH and that's what i would go with.

    I SHOT Grim Reapers, and like them alot. i have never shot the kill Zone, dont know anything about them. I dont plan on going to any other BH. However last year i shot a small doe that the broadhead didn't pass thru. It stayed in a Rib on oppsite side. (Heart Shot) but i bought a new blade that year (2011) that was 1 1/2 inch cut still at 100 grains. I waS TOLD that the BH WAS thiner, the blade and shaft to compensate for the longer blades. Some other Friends had the same problem. so this year i purchased the 1 3/8 inch cut again and had no problem with the doe i killed, it went thru the oppsite leg. (BH Broke oppsite Leg) The Buck i killed i did the same thing broke the Oppsite Leg. Thats what i am for is the oppsite leg.

    Good Luck, I'm sure either BH will treat you right. As long as your shotting the spot your suppose to.

    I shot an antelope and a deer with the Killzone this year. Neither went over 25 yards and the entry and exit holes were huge. Haven't used the GR but I'm sure it will do the job as well.
