What are your thoughts on the newer blade capture on the trypans? It seems to require more force to open the broadhead but I don’t have a ton of experience with them.Kurt, I have been shooting Rage 3 blades for the last 15 years and have literally killed hundreds of hogs, deer and exotics. I recently switched to the trypans because I was tired of replacing the broad head after every animal. I always had pass throughs with the older 3 blades, but I have shot 4 animals with the trypans and none have passed through. If you look at the older cut on contact tip of the 3 blades the ferrule was slightly conical after the tip, which allowed the head to go around bone, I believe the chisel tip on the trypans has a tendency to lodge in bone as opposed to deflecting around it. I will switch away from the trypans after hearing your story, I thought my occurrences were flukes.
