Seemed like all the talk last year lead to the 2 blade design. But I'm sure there will be more solid input than that to come!

early on they had some probs with the 3 blade, but is fixed now I guess, I shoot the 2 blade and I think I'm going to continue through this year also

The company is doing everything in house this year so I don't think you'll see any more problems with the three blade. Last year they farmed the job out to someone else. This is according to our Rage rep. There also shouldn't be a shortage of 2 blades this year so should be no problems getting these broadheads.

I've used the 3 blade with no problems except fumbling with getting another band over the system. But for the ease of things I now us the two blade and like the 2" cutting diameter. One tip to consider is always keep an eye on those rubber bands and keep them moist or they will dry up and then the blades deploy.

i used some no name brand that i got for a few dollar it was 3 blade. First ever shot at a deer 40 yards perfect hit made a hole bigger than a shotgun slug. one of the blades did break. I guess my point is practice with your brand and make a good shot.

i want to try these rage broadheads myself but dont see the need to spend 40 bucks when i can spend 5 with the same outcome?

It seemed to me the shortage was always with the 3-blade...am I wrong? I've been using the 3's with no problems. Superior flight, too. How do the 2's fly in comparison?

I believe it was the two blade that was hard to get. The three blade was the one that had some issues.

Rage is a very good head. Right now they have a marketing plan that has just about taken over the expandable broadhead market. There are alot of expandables on the market that are just as good. Wasp, Grim Reaper, and Snyper to name a few.

Try them out and see how they fly. That's all you can do.

I'm sticking with fixed blade broadheads.

Expandables sometimes get used as a crutch in my opinion. You hear many guys say they can't get fixed blade heads to fly well for them so they use expandables. A properly tuned bow will shoot pretty much any head to the same point of impact as field points. There are always exceptions though.

Fixed vs. mechanicals what's better? Ford vs. Chevy Marcum vs. Vexilar. It's all personal preference.

Well I bought into the marketing ploy and picked up some Rage 3 blades today. I have heard nothing but good from people using them so that means something. We'll see..

I didn't mean the marketing was a bad thing. There is just so much hype. It's a good broadhead and they market the [PoorWordUsage] out of it. That's what I meant.

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
