I have been using the SS & I have had good success. I'm just curious what you guys think about the hypothermic +p. Is it worth the extra 5-6 bucks? Or is a 1 1/2" mechanical a 1 1/2" mechanical? Please no mechanical or rage hate.

Keep using the SS, or wait for the chinadermic +P

I have used both and really like the hypodermic. The solid point vs. the blade works better in my opinion if you hit bone.

The only difference is the ferrule, right? Same blades, I think? The SS has an aluminum ferrule and comes with either a blade or chisel tip. The Hypo +P has a stainless ferrule and only comes with a chisel tip. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Been using the +P in 125 grain this year and have liked the results so far. I think this design will penetrate a bit better due to the blade angle being a bit less severe. It does have a 1 1/2 inch cut, at least that is what is said on the package. I will continue to use it on deer i believe.

I've been using snypers(pre rage) , same broadhead, they have a 1 5/8" cut, much better blade angle than the 2" and they use a rubber band at the front for blade retention which IMO is much superior, Ive killed around 40-50 deer and big bears with them most have died within sight, zero failures! I bought a dozen packs when I heard they sold out to Rage. Now that I'm down to a few packs I am happy to see rage is making these, I don't like the 2" blade angle at all

I would stay with the SS personally.
