I have never used a mechanical and may not ever. I love my NAP Hellrazors. IF, and a big IF I was to use mechanicals, it would probably be either a Swhacker or a Grim Reaper. I’ve seen/heard about way too many guys/gals not getting penetration with a Rage even with a well placed shot to even consider them. Fixed blade is the way to go IMO. I’ve never had to track a deer. Always dropped within sight.
Mechanicals- Can’t beat the Grim Reapers for whitetail. Tried the rage and they were terrible. Went back to the Reapers and I’m not Changing again.
For Hogs and Elk I like a fixed blade. Slick Trick Mags Period!
I never shot a Swhacher, never will. I shot 2 deer with Rage. The first looked like the pics people post with the big holes. The second I hit a rib going in and it turned to mush. I will never shoot a Rage again. If I shoot a mechanical it will be NAP Spitfire. Shot lots of deer with them and zero issues. Now I use NAP Hellrazors or Tru-Fire T1. I am sure there are lots of good fixed blade broadheads out there. But these 2 have never failed me.
