I am planning to buy more Chinese rage before they get taken down but I wanted to know what everyone is having good luck with. I currently shoot the classic rage with the rubber o ring. I have had good luck with the classic rage but just want to know if I’m missing something better. Looking for people opinions on what tip they use and if they like the rubber o ring or the plastic shock collar better.

I switched to Hypodermic - and I really like the shock collar. Shot the original for years, and killed just fine - but sometimes that o-ring would get finicky and blades would constantly pop loose (annoying). The shock collar does not let the blades pop loose from incidental bumps or quiver inserts. The collars have to be put on the right way - with blades aligned on the solid portion and not with the cut groove.

I’ve killed several deer with the Hypodermic and I’m pleased with performance (I’m shooting them out of a 70 lb Creed XS)

I have used the two bladed Rage with the cut on contact point with good success. The shock collars are a more positive hold on the blades with no blades  slipping out. be sure to follow instructions about positioning them against the blades. The blades should be on the petals of the collar not in the slots.

Stay away from the CHINESE HYPODERMICS, I bought them several times and they were JUNK, loose blades, noisy, weight differences, shake the arrow and blades come loose, JUNK.
Maybe there is some one else making them over there better but I never found them.

I like the Hypodermics. The first batch I bought were not very sharp and had loose wobbly blades but they still functioned ok. I sharpened the blades and used a file to smooth the burrs which made them deploy more consistently and I did not loose a single deer using them.
I just bought another batch from this seller and these are better:
https://m.ebay.com/itm/24pcs-Official-SlipCam-Broadheads-2-Blade-100-Grain-2-Cut-Archery-Arrow-Tips/252142451660?epid=1640123632
These ones are sharper out of the package than I can get them and the few I've tested operate properly so I'm satisfied. Still a little loose but I don't see how that matters since they only deploy on contact. This one uses a hex like the original so if you have a polishing wheel and patience with a file you can tune them up if you like.

Well I guess if your OK with loose blades, noisy, weight differences, not sharp blades,  shake the arrow and blades come open then have at it.
I personally don't want these issues with a broad head I'm depending on.
That's just me I guess

Whatever do you speak? I shoot a lot of them and have never had any of the issues you mention.

I'm answering the question but not in the intended context of the question..."none" of the above. Just a firm believer in fixed blade broadheads. Before you jump all over me I am answering the question...I've hunted with everything from hand sharpened Zwickeys to what I shoot now which is 100 grain SlickTricks and have no intention of going to expandables simply because of the discussions above which I don't have to take into consideration with a fixed blade broadhead.

Hypos, but haven't got to use yet. Loose, maybe a little if you shake them....but a dental rubber band fixes that easy (stolen from your childs braces) [wink]

For what it's worth... I haven't experienced the loose / rattle / dull with the new shock collars on the Hypodermic. BUT I also haven't bought the China version. I paid the outrageous retail price - usually a little cheaper on Amazon, but still pricey at $35

I totally understand the negatives of a mechanical head... but with enough kinetic energy for penetration, they sure fly nice and leave a big hole!

Steelerfan - "I totally understand the negatives of a mechanical head... but with enough kinetic energy for penetration, they sure fly nice and leave a big hole!" ...I understand your point but just another variable I don't need to consider. The Zwickeys were out of a 50# recurve and with the same shot placement it would be the same result...nice buck! I believe the Wensel Brothers summed it up best years ago..."If you throw a ping pong ball into a snow bank at 100mph and then throw a golf ball into a snow bank at 100mph which one would have deeper penetration?" Just my opinion, but at the point of impact an expandable puts the brakes on and needs the additional kinetic energy a fixed blade doesn't. So I'll sacrifice a small level of accuracy and avoid the potential of failure in flight, broadhead failure at impact, etc. and stay with my fixed blades. But to each his own and their preference.
