How does a company improve upon a design that has proven as wildly successful and immensely popular as the Rage Hypodermic? Rage engineers answered that question with a new broadhead that boasts ridiculous strength, huge slap-cuts on entry and a sweptback blade angle for unprecedented penetration, and they named it the Trypan.
Trypanophobia is the fear of needles, and the new 100-gr. Hypodermic Trypan is just about the scariest broadhead Rage has ever introduced to the hunting woods. With its needle-like, streamlined titanium ferrule and 2-inch cutting diameter, the Trypan creates a slap-cut entry hole well in excess of 2.5 inches. Afterward, the Trypan’s .039-inch-thick razor-sharp stainless steel blades settle into a sweptback blade-angle configuration. Even though the blades are monstrous once deployed, they create only a 3/4-inch diameter in-flight profile.
The grey polymer Trypan-specific Shock Collar provides exceptional blade retention and consistently reliable blade deployment. The one time use Shock Collars are indexed to notches in the Trypan’s titanium ferrule, so they never can be put on incorrectly.
The new Rage Hypodermic Trypan comes in a three-pack with a practice tip, and it is available at retailers nationwide and on the Rage website with a suggested retail price of $54.99.
