This will be my first year to bow hunt, and I have heard some people say that in order for mechanical broadheads to deploy correctly that you should be shooting a certain draw weight, but then again I've also heard people say that that is a bunch of nonsense. What experienced have y'all had with mechanicals and certain draw weights? I just wanna make sure that my bow could deploy them before going and purchasing some. Thanks in advance!

If you are shooting under 50 lbs I would say you should stick with a two blade mechanical. Rage has a head specific for lower poundage set ups. That said it is very crucial you have your bow well tuned to maximize you kinetic energy and penetration.

Hunt hard, rest when you're dead.

The low-energy Rage 2-blade works well. I've used them @ 52-56lb with a 26" draw and they worked fine. Now I shoot standard Rage 2-blade at 60lb and 28" and that works great.

When I was under 50lb, I used 85gr Thunderhead broadheads by NAP. Great fixed blade.
