    What's your opinions? Pros and cons? Making a decision on which I would like to buy.

    Both will kill deer...I like the new Rage Hypodermics, just still not sure about their blades. Seem awful brittle to me. The Killzones are awesome from what I have seen.

    Yeah from doing the research that's what I am seeing a lot of is people having issues with the durability of the blades of the Rage.

    After watching all the episodes of "bowhunt or die" I figured I'd give them a try. Then I found then last winter for $25 a pack & that sealed the deal. Added bonus that the first deer I shot with them died within 50 yards with a massive hole & blood trail.[​IMG]

    I shot the killzones last season and really liked them. Went with the Rage 2-blade Xtreme this year and both deer I've had complete pass throughs with the broad head remaining intact. One blade was slightly bent, but I will replace blades between deer no matter what I'm shooting.

    I shoot the rages and I don't honestly think it matters between the two of them what you shoot as long as you keep with the two blades, the blades on anything will bend if they pass through into a rock, the deciding factor for me would have to be the new rage chisel tips, ive seem the bones after, the ribs that were hit practically blew up and the blood was awesome all 30 yards to the deer

    I am shooting the Rage Hypodermics on my Creed and the Rage Chisel Tip Extreme on my Z7Mag. I have been shooting Rgae broadheads since they hit the market. They work really well for me.

    I have bought both plus Grim Reapers and from now on I will only be using the NAP. I had a problem with only one of the three blades on the Reapers opening, and the Rage just dont seem to be build as well as the NAP.

    I've used the rage for the past 2 seasons... Done the job really well on a couple bear, a few deer, 4-6 coyotes, and 3 turkey. I change the blades after baggin' each one

    Killzones for me. They fly so much like my field points that I couldn't say no.

    I had bought the killzone maxx's but they got stolen with the bow... However, myself and alot lf my buddies use Rage 2 blades (non-hypodermic) and we have recovered our deer anywhere from 20 yards to 100 yards. Great broadheads. The only problem with mechanicals and I have heards guys say it is "it lets me mess up". This is true. Those blades on either are lethal on wherever they hit. But remember, you can kill a deer with a field tip with a well placed shot. But thats getting off topic. Both are great broadheads.

    Killzones all the way! You won't be disappointed! I have been shooting the Maxx's this season and they're beast!!! And the spring clip which eliminates the shock collar is huge!
