Re: Trigger tech recall

Sorry if this has been already answered here. Been super busy and I just read about the trigger recall and have a question. I just removed my trigger Tech Trigger to find the (serial number?) and this is the number I have hand scribed on the bottom of the trigger. 0693-003 that's it...this does not ...

Re: Opinions on Matrix

Gene... Not sure what your last paragraph is referring too? If you have miss understood what I was talking about in terms of you being a better hunter than I am.( it appeared that you did) I have no problem with viewing others as having better skills at hunting or shooting than I do. Anyone that can...

Re: Opinions on Matrix

Well Gene you are obviously a much more skilled hunter and archer than I will ever be. What eludes me is why waste your time with an crossbow...I would still love to use the old bows but with shoulder injuries and arthritis the constant practice that is required for proficency is not possible anymor...

Re: Opinions on Matrix

Very true Gene and I agree with you. However when I started bow hunting at the age of 12 in 1964 I was using a 48 lb Bear Grizzly recurve bow with feather fletched cedar arrows and 145 gr Bear broadheads.. That was potent medicine for deer back then. I guess the speed of the arrow was around 165 -17...

Re: Unequal limbs when cocked. Normal?

Measuring tiller is really quit easy on a crossbow, compound bow or recurve bow. A bow square works well for this because that is what it is designed to do. I just visually could see that while my crossbow was uncocked that the string was not square with the mainframe rail...simple. So I pulled out ...

Re: Opinions on Matrix

I own a 380 and my son has a 355. I purchased the 355 used here on trading post for a decent price with extras and a spare set of limbs. I had a Exomax but sold it and absolutely love my 380,wouldn't trade it for any bow. My son loves the 355 and took a 10 point with it last year. I think the 350 an...

Re: Unequal limbs when cocked. Normal?

When I purchased my 380 Matrix a few years ago I noticed the tiller was not equal between limbs by about 5/16". I contacted Excal and they had me send my limb and riser assembly back. I received it back with a different set of limbs. Not sure if it would have developed into a accuracy problem or not...

Re: OT Michigan Muzzle loader

Just a word of caution regarding the 3 inch spike minimum on one side. Zone 2 in particular has a lot of area that is under a antler point restriction rule. Make sure the area you will be hunting has a point restriction rule that allows for a buck to be taken with only a 3" antler. Some areas (count...

Re: season end crossbow put away???

At the end of the Michigan deer season (dec) I remove the string from my M380 and store it in the case. Did the same with my Exomax when I owned it. From reading here I understand that there is probably no reason to remove the string but I personally feel better removing it while its stored for seve...

Re: crossbow used to kill three in Toronto

I thought that only the media here in the states was biased and corrupt. It sounds like it is world wide. Yes they will spin a lie just to support their warped agenda and it is getting real old real fast. We are trying to decide on a President with a choice of idiot number one or idiot number two an...

Re: Aluminium bolt nocks.

I use the Easton plastic flat nocks from Bowhunters Superstore. I use the 2216 Easton shafts and like the lighter weight of the plastic nocks verse aluminum inserts. Been using the Easton plastic nocks for 5 or 6 years with no issues. Never had any fail in any way.

Re: Should I keep my Matrix 380 Blackout or trade it for a M

I own a 380 Matrix and my son has the 355 Matrix...My 380 isn't going anywhere. To me its the perfect hunting bow. Super accurate with bone crushing power and just the right size and balance for me. Everyone is different but these are just my thoughts.
