SUPERIOR, Wis. (Feb. 24, 2016) — Rage Outdoors has announced the introduction of the new 85-grain Rage SS-85 broadhead, which is sure to appeal to speed freaks as well as archers who shoot lower poundage bows but still want the huge entry holes and massive wound channels Rage is famous for. The Rage SS-85 was engineered to create maximum performance and lethality for shorter draw lengths and lower poundage bows, but it also provides more speed for those who crave FPS.
The Rage SS-85 broadhead incorporates a swept blade angle with the same anodized aluminum ferrule and leading-edge blade designs used in the immensely popular Rage X-treme broadhead. The smaller 1.5-inch cutting diameter and smooth, tapered ferrule provide even more penetration on big game when using bows with kinetic energy of less than 40 ft./lbs. This patented design maintains energy longer and penetrates deeper than other similar broadheads.
The new Rage SS-85 features surgically sharp 0.035-inch blades, and it has an in-flight diameter of 3/4-inch for field-tip-level accuracy. Incorporating the proven Shock Collar blade-retention system, the Rage SS-85 ensures that blades stay in place until they hit their target but allow the blades to deploy with absolute reliability.
The gold ferrule makes the Rage SS-85 broadhead easily recognizable at the retailer and in the field. The new 85-grain Rage SS-85 will join the Rage SS 100-grain green ferrule in the low-energy broadhead line. The Rage SS-85 will be available at retailers nationwide this spring. The suggested retail price is $44.99 for a three pack with a practice head.
