My dad shoots a crossbow and was wondering if the rage 2 blade would shoot out of his ten point?
i wouldnt trust em to stay closed. use a slick trick. or a tight shut expandable
I don't shoot a crossbow but am somewhat reluctant to try them. I haven't had much luck with mechanicals.
My friends were given Parker cross-guns, and, this was the topic of a few conversations. I do believe that they have all elected to use cut-on-contact heads out of their cross-rifles.
A hunting buddy shoots them out of his excaliber at over 350fps, no problems what so ever. He also does not use a rubber band around them.
i use rocket hammer heads cuz they use a rubber band. afraid of using ones that dont have a restraint.
I believe RAGE came out with a new broadhead this year made just for crossbows...It's orange!
Slip Cam in a crossbow = BAD IDEA. they open upon leaving the bow. If you're going to spend the money, try something more like a NAP spitfire. 3 blade, doesn't open until it hits it's mark.
My uncle shoots them out of his X-bow. He's killed three or four bucks with them (the regular rage 2 blades) and never had a problem.
I don't trust them!
Grim Reaper Xbow broadhead......or the Spitfires
Have you ever actually shot them from a crossbow? Or are you like most ppl and just believe whatever you hear? My whole family use Rage 3blade. My dad shoots a crossbow at 308 fps and hasn't had a problem using them. Only real problem I've had is rushing a shot and hitting shoulder blade. I know, a lot of people will say it wouldn't have been a problem with a fixed blade... Well, it wouldn't have been a problem if I had taken my time, either. Still recovered the deer, Just not as quickly as I would have liked. That happens with fixed blade BH's too. Don't believe every bad thing you hear until you try things for yourself. I have nothing against fixed blades, it's just my preference to use Rage. The debate will go on forever, I say use what you're comfortable with and leave each person to their own.
out of my xbow shooting 330fps i use the rage 2 blade 125grn xbow head and never had an issue. i use to use the 100grn heads i use on my bow for my xbow and never an issue with them also.
Ive used them for 2 seasons....killed 4 deer...no problems....Thunderbolt52
my wife shoots the 3 bladed rage out of her ten point and has taken 6 deer with them and NO
issues at all.... once in the blind i open all the blades and reset them and she shoots away....
good luck in your decision...russ
The new rage broadheads like the extreme 2.3 and the chisel all have the new shock collar system.They hold the blades alot tighter so i think if you shot them then they would be fine.
My buddy swears by Rage.. He hunts bow and crossbow with a 2 blade.. He only hunts trophy deer and bagged a 200" non typical with a 2 blade last year.. Im going to use them in my Ghost..
I shoot Grim Reaper broadheads out of my Wicked Ridge Invader HP and they are devastating on the deer they go max 60 yards and done.
