    Rage 40 KE

    My little cousin just got started in bowhunting. He is only drawing 40 pounds at a 23 inch draw length. What are your thoughts on the rage 40ke?

    I would never use an expandable in a set up like that. He needs a COC fixed blade. I like the Slick Tricks. I use Slick Trick Magnums out of my bow, and it's at 70lbs at 30"

    It would be a mistake to use on your cousin's setup. As mentioned, get a COC BH.

    I would never use a 3 blade with that poundage either. Get some Magnus heads. They make awesome 2 blades.

    I only pull 40# and there is no way I'd use the rage 40KE.

    I use the original style muzzy 3 blade heads. (I have a 3" longer draw tho'.) I would recommend a COC head and 20 yard or less shots.

    For Rage to market a 40KE expandable is negligent at best. It would be a horrible choice. Go with a quality fixed head. There are many that would do the job.
    Do you smell pineapple??

    The slick trick razor trick is a good BH and not very expensive and replacement blades are reasonable too.

    Magnus stinger are great on my wife's setup; 40 lbs at 25". Theyre also made in the USA and have a great warranty on the heads.

    Check out the G5 Montec, QAD Exodus, Magnus Stinger Buzz Cut, NAP Hellrazors and of course the Muzzy's.
    A hunter is not a man who kills animals but, a man who holds immense knowledge, loves, respects and takes great steps in the preservation of the creatures he harvests. He is loyal, grateful, responsible and ethical in every aspect of his chase. He is who I strive every day to be.

    TEAM KILL!!!!!!
