not the first time i've heard of those doing that. I personaly dont shoot them I use fixed, but a guy I work with said he took a piece of sewing thread and tied it around the blades to keep them from poping open when he dosnt want them to.

my dad just bought rages because he couldnt find a broad head that hit well. the rages go right where the field points hit, every single time. he has the same problem, ive looked at them and they are finicky. i expect the o-ring will wear out eventually yes, but nothing i would worry about right now.

Scratch, tell your Dad to try Shuttle T's, 100 or 125 gr. They fly great (much like fieldpoints) and are tough as nails. Youngest son killed a buck last Thursday and Friday (10/18&19) and they left a great blood trail for about 30 yards and that is about as far as either buck made it.

also Ncarl, when you bought the rages they should have come with these little orange plastic things that you can slide over the blades and they wont open up, and when the arrow hits something the blades blow the plastic piece off. let me tell you, we could not for the life of us figure out how to get those little plastic things over the blades without slicing our fingers to shreds. the damn things just wouldnt fit!!

RES, maybe ill give them a look. i think for now he seems satisfied with the accuracy of his rages, doubt he gonna wanna fiddle with broadheads during the middle of deer season anyways.

when I use to shoot rages I would cut little notches in the tops of the blades with a dermal and used extremely thin wire or braces bands to hold it together. stayed shut in the quiver and i did not have to make sure the blades where in every shot i took.
