No doubt! That's a great way to look at it. I've never heard of issues either, but I like hearing your experience - everything has its weakness and if it happens once it can happen again. Always looking for faster, stronger, better

    I'm a guide for the last 20 years and have seen lots of diff broad heads I hate and get the chills when a hunter comes in with a non cut on contact head I am a true believer in the cutting on contact no matter what brand it is

    Had a couple of hunters using Toxic's, I was a bit skeptical but one took a bear, a muley, and an elk, none traveled more than 13 yards.......

    QAD Exodus 100gr. I think it's one of the best heads on the market.


    Here's the head's effects on a 9pt buck:
    Entrance:


    Exit:


    I wonder why it's not more popular.... razor sharp, flies very well from my bow at 322 FPS and I killed three deer with the exact same head with no sharpening in between last year.

    Regards,

    I'll shoot Rage 3 blade all day long. Massive holes and blood trails! looks like a red carpet! alot of people say that rage are junk but i have yet to see that. I've shot probably 6 deer or so with this broadhead and wont shoot anything else. Blades always deploy fully and no penetration issues. I shot a buck a couple of weeks ago at 45 yards with 64 lbs of pull with a 28 in draw and gold tip pro hunter arrows topped with a lumenok..... complete pass through.

    I switched to grim reaper mechanical broad heads last season. I took a small bull at 35 yrds near the end of the season. He didn't go more than 20 yards before laying down. Though while I was butchering I was less than impressed with the damage. The arrow placement was good. The arrow nicked a rib and traveled back and did not exit. One of the three blades broke and another didn't open. It might have been that after carrying that arrow around all season i had gummed up the bh with some dirt.

    I am not sure what I am going to do next season. I really like the way the expandables fly. I am just a little leery of the mechanics.
