Shwackers are an awesome broadhead especially for guys with lots of kinetic energy. Complaint is if you don't get exit hole the entrance hole is not adequate for a good blood trail. The deer will die but blood trail may not be there. I used Rage Titanium this year and cut 3/16' off each blade and had pass thrus on everything including a 235 lb 15 point at 42 yards. Distance ran for all 5 deer totaled 110 yards, just sheer devastation. All 5 deer were shot with same broadhead, 2 blades replaced. Shortening the blade 3/16' with cutting pliers makes the blades stiffer and reduces bending or breakage, cutting width is 1.75'. A Rada knife sharpener will sharpen Rage or any broadhead blades or knife so sharp in 3 or 4 passes its scary. The Rage titanium are ridiculous expensive but five deer on one head so far, worth every penny. Titaniums are much smaller in profile yet much stronger so alot less chance of head breaking off at ferrule like aluminum rage does sometimes. I shot the big 15 point in rain and glad I had it, he only went ten yards.
