    I recently purchased some chisel tip 3 blade Rage heads. I have shot them several times to test for accuracy and to compare their accuracy to my field tips. I have been very pleased with the accuracy of the broad heads. My only concern is that after several shots the blades get loose.  My question is when replacing or tightening the blades how tight should the screw be? I assume if they are to tight the blades won’t deploy and if they are to loose they may fall off upon impact.  I searched the Rage website for some pointers on how tight the screw should be but didn’t find anything. Any advice?

    Just snug them up. To tight and they will strip or break.

    If its a problem, usually a little Blue Lock-tite will take care of it without having to over torque/strip the threads.

    FWIW, I generally use Blue Lock-tite when assembling any broadhead and on the RPS threads … its an ounce of prevention.
