    I've always used muzzys, past 20 years, but bought a new mathews in the spring, and just had to try the new rage. Sat morning I got to try one out. I'm sold, I shot this one at 32 steps and it dropped at 48. Awesome hole. I agree the blades do like to pop out of o-ring, but once you knock your arrow, there is no problem. I think the stories that we hear they don't expand, are that they were not seated in the o-ring.

    I have the opposite problem. My two blade stay closed my 3 blade do not. I learned of a dental rubber band fix on another post I am going to try.

    You can't argue with success BUT.....

    You ain't seen a hole till you see what one of these do

    They come with the rubber bands, extras are expensive but I have gone to an orthodontist and gotten ~50, and they didn't even charge me and I told them i didn't any patient relationship with them.

    I like them, but they are not a great broadhead for stalking. The blades do pop out upon the slightest contact with brush and in the intensity of a stalk you very well may have open blades when you get your shot. Great for treestands.
