    Cant get the blades to stay locked in the rubber o-rings. Just putting them in my quiver they open up. If you tap them on your hand they sound like the head is loose but its the blades rattling. They also open when you tap them on your hand. Tried new o-rings and that didnt help. Just don't trust them now.

    Haven't had that problem. New rings would be my suggestion. These factory or replacement blades?
    Mine work GREAT!

    Tried new o-rings. They are factory blades. Pulled the o-ring out and got them ingage butt as soon as you tap them on your hand they open.

    I don't have a problem keeping them closed when I am drawing back, thats all that I am worried about. If I push them into the quiver to far then they will open. I always check that the head is tight and the blades aren't open before I nock a arrow anyway.

    Rages are nice, but little things like this and the fact they break so easy on a shot made me go back to Reapers. They do rip a hole through a deer though. Personally I prefer the three blade version myself. :cheers:
