    Slick Tricks……………………. Solid steel construction so it doesn’t have to be junked after one use, 4 .035″ thick blades that can actually be replaced, all the durability and penetration of a fixed blade head with the flight, cutting and carnage that are associated with wide cutting diameter mechanicals :thumbup

    Hmmmm, so now I need to actually hunt with them to see that the o-rings rot and the blades have trouble staying shut by themselves??? I also need to hunt with them to be able to comprehend selling replacement blades for a head that isn’t made to be reused????

    Again, a blind man doesn’t have to see the dog pooping to determine what that smell is he just stepped in :D

    I’ll come right out and say it, this crap is getting really, really old. If you don’t like the Rage heads then don’t use them. If you want to make it your own personal crusade, take it someplace else. You shot your credibility in the foot by stating you need no personal experience with them and you’re going up against many, many pics of pure carnage posted by several forum members. Find a different way to have fun.

    It was UNKNOWN to the company that the oil on the blades reacted in a negative way to the o-rings for a small group of the heads until it was happening.

    If you people who had issues with any of this would take the time and talk to them at Rage they will help you out with replacement parts. BUT you decide to BASH them on Forums instead of just picking up the phone and talking to someone there and letting them help. EVERY SINGLE TIME I request help from them for ANYONE on here that has asked they were taken care.

    Ask any of the guys I did this for. I don’t mind doing this, this is why I back there product because they take care of you all everytime I request it…..

    All I did was respond to an attack against my personal character. I didn’t realize that attacks to personal character went unnoticed but attacks against particular product were a “no-no”.

    Since you brought up experience with Rage heads…… I bought 2 packs of the 3 blade heads this summer because they were going to be in my quiver this fall. O-rings were good, I made sure the blades “clicked” in to place before I shot them and 2 of the 6 would hit 5″ right and about 12″ low on a CONSISTENT basis due to a blade coming open in mid-flight. I tried them, they’re not for me and I have absolutely no objections to letting people know what I think about them and frankly, if the praising is o.k., then you have to allow the negative comments too in order to give inquirers an HONEST review of the product [=}=]

    I will take a simple O-Ring and replace it, the cost is minimal. I don’t know about the Oil, but I do know about O-Rings drying out. I don’t know about others, but I don’t personally shoot the Rage heads, but I placed 4 shots into the target before the O-Ring broke, and each time the blades locked in just fine. You can feel it when they do so. Also nowhere did it say the head is NOT made to be reused, but people stated they were having trouble getting the screws out.

    I shoot Rocket Steelheads, the buck I shot last season they performed flawlessly, I replaced the blades so demote the broadhead to practice only, but for me to take that broadhead back out there, I would need scientific proof that there was no stress caused during the kill. And I don’t have it. I will reuse a broadhead for practice but not for hunting! [=}=]

    Hey BTW did you see the 2 Shot broken blade Slick Trick thread on AT… :whistle

    Also a tip of the blades don’t stay closed, take a small rubber band, the Braces ones, and slide it over the middle of the blades on the Rage, it does not inhibit the broadhead at all! [=}=]

    John, negative comments are as welcome as positive comments but this entire issue has been elevated to a ridiculous level. I think most of us are growing weary of reading about it. I bought a pack of Rage heads when they first became available. I had issues with them, I called Rage, and I was promptly and satisfactorily taken care of. Personally I think it’s a better way of handling things. [=}=]

    1.) Did you happen to read how that Slick Trick blade was broken? The guy hit the back of the first head with another Slick Trick on his second shot. Metal on metal contact at high speeds is A LOT different than metal on bone. No broadhead would have withstood that and in fact, the blade didn’t even break it just bent, so that right there is areal testiment to the ST’s durability.

    2.) AS for “nobody ever saying that Rage heads were disposable”, go back and read a little better because in one of these useless threads a Rage user relayed what he was told directly from Field Logic themselves. You know what they told him??? That Rage heads were meant to be disposable heads and weren’t intended to be used more than once ;)

    3.) Stress to a broadhead?? Give me a break lol. Steelhead = SOLID STEEL…… unless you shot a Panzer tank there is absolutely no damage done to that chunk of steel.
