Anyone use the G5 Tekkan II? They look pretty nasty. I have the Rage 3 blades now and haven' t stuck anything with them yet. But judging from 2 weeks ago while hunting with my cousin they don't do well at all if you hit anywhere but a clean rib shot. He had 3 get away that we couldn't find. Bad weekend for him. I'm not sure if I want to chance the rage on a big buck when the time comes this weekend.

I have used the Wasp Jak Hammer II for years and have 100% retrieve ratio. My son and I haven't lost a deer yet, and we have about 12 to our collection.

I use 100 grn. G5's the name is montec? I have shot 7 deer this year, none ran more than 35 yards. And that was with the same broadhead. Good luck

It doesn't matter what broadhead you use...IT'S ALL ABOUT SHOT PLACEMENT. That said, I have no complaints about a 100 gr. 3-blade Muzzy. It's devastating.

Word has it they are going to recall the Rage 3 blade broadhead's or just quit making them due to malfunction's. I saw a deer shot in Misssissippi with a 3 blade and it put an unbelievable hole in that animal. The Rage 2 blade work's great and look's like an axe wound on the entry hole. They fly like a fieldtip and are devastating.

Looks like you got every answer but the one you asked for Speckdeck, as usual everyone has a response for everything but what you're looking for.Looks like no one shoots the Tekkans. They do look Fearsome though. Try them and see. Let us know how they work out.

I agree with what was said earlier, it is all about shot placement. I don't care what broadhead you shoot without putting it in the right place you are going to have problems. With that being said I have been shooting the 100gr Grim Reapers and love them but the deer I shot this past weekend was with a 2 blade rage. That broadhead did more damage than any I have ever seen. The entrance hole looked like you hit the deer with a hatchet and the exit hole was not much smaller. I have heard bad things about the 3 blade rage but that 2 blade rage is badass.

Rage had a recall on the 3 blade broadheads because they would not open completly. He may need to send them back to the Manufacture for a replacement set! I used the Hypershock 100gr over the weekend and shot two deer, neither one ran more than 25-30 yards! I have 4 sets of 85gr montecs if anyone wants them!! $20.00 a pack, I have shot some of them into my Block! I also have a new set of montec game heads, $25.00.

Thanks for the input. I went ahead and bought the tekans. I'll let you all know how they work. (going to bust some hearts tomorrow).

I'll keep the rage heads on standby for back-up. I'm buck huntin this week before all of the guns hit the woods. I'll try the rage on some does after I get some horns.

I completely agree w/ shot placement. I just like that confidence in some bust ass knock down power in a broadhead, and the rage hasn't proved itself to me yet.

the Montec G5 100 grain is where it is at. I have killed several alabama deer and up north deer with it. Shot one in Illinios this year, got the broadhead back and it could still shave you. The 3 blade muzzy's is a good head, but you have to replace the blades everytime it is shot. But, one good thing is both those broadheads fly the same. I am a montec believer, just killed too many and some right in their tracks to switch.

I shot the Tekan II for 2 seasons never lost a deer but had hardly any blood trail to them and the entrance and exit holes were very small. I shoot a hell raiser now and am 2 for 2. I had no problem with the Tekan II other than the no blood trail and small holes.

I shot tekens and jack hammers a few years ago and had the same results as someone above. Small entrancehole andtoughblood trails.That was whenthey didn't open up before they got to deer and do a nose dive before they made it tothem.I went back to my fixed blade Magnus's and Landsharks. Guaranteed hole on both sides, it's cutting going in and cutting coming out. Don't have to worry about any moving parts or replacing blades every time you shoot. Just resharpen and go. I've got broad heads I've killed 4 and 5 deer with. Got a new one this year that's has already been broken in twice. Keep it simple. If your bow is tuned properly it will shoot them the same as your field points. Plus being you can resharpen them you can used them for target practice as well.

3 blade rage report-

I got a 115lb doe this past Sunday morning. Stuck her with the 3 blade rage, and that was about the most grusum(sp) wound I've ever seen. She didn't have a chance against that broadhead...it was brutal. The doe ran about 50yds and crashed. I shot her a little high on entry, but with the steep angle of being in my climber, the exit was perfect. Nasty wound both entry and exit.

I've beenreading all the bad wrap the rage has been getting on the forum. I'll admitt, I've been a little skeptical about its preformance, but I decided to stick with the rage and see what happens. I guess mine past the test.

Maybe some of the broadhead work while others don't...I don't know. But, I've got to stick with what works for now.
