    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.

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