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"

I would never use a 3 blade with that poundage either. Get some Magnus heads. They make awesome 2 blades.
wasp boss or standard muzzy's would work

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.
I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.
what broadhead should i give him? i have no standpoint on broadheads for low poundage cause i shoot 65 pounds at a 27 inch draw so i shoot swhackers
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.
