    Of course, I've used a myriad of fixed heads, including Bear Razorheads. Muzzy's, American Broadhead, Satellites. I would like to try SlickTricks or G5's. Out of all the fixed broadheads the only one I didn't have consistent pass throughs with were the bear razorheads. I shot the Rages and even without pass through the blood trails were enormous and I've never had a deer go more than 25yrds. However, just once I'd like to see one punch through.

    What is your arrow weight? I've had all pass through with my Cheetah shooting about 63-64# and a 345gr arrow. I've since upped my arrow weight, but draw is the same with no issues.

    Problem I've seen with rage is if you don't have the mass weight pushing it you won't get the pass through.

    Odd. Back when I used Bear Razorheads, I had no problem getting pass throughs and I was shooting a Bear recurve, a Super Kodiak then.

    I am at 396 with 100 grain heads@260fps, 421 with 125's @253. The 125 just about made it out of a quartering away buck at 40 yards. I have to get rebuild kits for the 125's.

    Similar situation Elk, though I was 10 years old with a 55lb Martin recurve, arrows were as thick as a kindergarten crayon. My draw length was about 18-20 inches so there wasnt alot on that arrow. 140 grain head on about 450 grain stick. I graduated to a used Martin cougar in junior high.
