Bought Rage 3 blade and luminocks. Just got back in the house from shooting them.
I had 100 grain razorbacks and 100 grain field tips before. I only shoot 45lbs (I'm a paper-pusher so I have no back muscles). I'm shooting a Bowtech Extreme VFT.
The new Rage blades flew perfect. Started at 20 yards...no sight adjustment needed. Hit within 1/2 inch of where I was aiming. At 30 yards the arrows hit perfect as well. Within 1/4 of an inch (guess I had a good stance with the bow...no shaking tonight!)
The luminocks are incredible. I haven't bought them before because I didn't want to drop the 12 bucks on a nock. Holy smokes. Letting one of those go is incredible to watch. The intensity of the illumination is amazing.
So...3 broadheads at $35/package, 3 luminocks at $12/nock. Droped $71 at Stateline Archery and Ammo in Plaistow NH....and I'm real happy with the result.
I shot Spitfires (100 grain) years ago. Was not happy with them after having a failure with them opening fully as I hit the very back edge of a shoulder blade on a small buck. No penetration if you hit bone. I think the blade started to open but got wedged with the hard bone and the arrow basically stopped penetrating about 1/4 inch into the shoulder. Shot the deer at 15 yards. I went to fixed blades after that. Don't know why, but I have decided to try mechanical blades again.
Love them luminocks...
