Re: First Excalibur for my 10 year old

I gave my son a Matrix Grizzly when he was 12. He harvested his first buck within 24 hours of shooting it for the first time. The synthetic main frame makes the weight manageable for a younger shooter, and balance of the bow when cocked is good. I have two BNIB available currently for $549.99 TYD in...

Re: Why did you choose Excalibur?

Simplicity and warranty primarily. Was so impressed with my first Excalibur I became a dealer.

Re: Recommendation for beginner

If your primary quarry will be deer from a stand, it's hard to argue with he merits of the Excalibur Matrix Grizzly. More than ample performance at a very reasonable price. If you can afford a little more, the Micro 335 is an awesome bow. Those are the two that I recommend the most to my customers.

Re: R.E.D.S. suppressor question

DO NOT shoot the bow if the string is touching the REDS! You need to keep a 1/4" to 1/2" spacing between the string and the REDS. I've had two customers in the last week who broke limbs due to shooting while the string was against the REDS.

Re: Tested some Excals today

In several tests between my Micro 355 and Micro 335, I'm finding an average velocity gain of five fps with the 355. Not sure it's worth the extra $$$ just to get the TactZone scope. My Dad is shooting the 350LE. I'm quite impressed with it. In chrono tests, it's getting 24 fps more than my Micro 355...

Micro 355 a bit disappointing

Finally got around to putting my new Micro 355 through the chrono. I'm shooting an 18" 475 gr. B.E.E. Pretty heavy, so no surprise that it was kinda slow, but the disappointment really set in after comparing to my Micro 335. Only five (5) FPS average difference in velocity shooting the same arrow fr...

EZ Fletch Bolt set-back??

Want to start fletching my own bolts, want to use the EZ Fletch Bolt for simplicity, but want to have a 1 1/8" vane set back?

Can anyone tell me what set-back distance is with the Bolt?

Re: Stock string vs custom flemish???

I like Flemish because of the ability to customize the string color to my bow/set-up, and they are just plain quieter than factory. The tag ends of the Flemish strings also fray out over time adding a "cat whisker" like addition for further sound/vibration suppression. Haven't noticed any appreciabl...

Re: Do you guys wear Camo?

Camo clothing? Yes! Pattern depends on time of year and terrain. But most important is disguising your scent. I've stood within 10 yards of deer wearing jeans and flannel shirt, with the wind in my favor, and they looked right at me and continued to feed. Fool their nose and fooling the rest of thei...

How did you extend the stock? My chief complaint is how the factory configuration crowds me into the scope.

Re: Dead Ringer Kill Switch?

I also saw the video where the dead turkey was shot. The wound would have proven fatal, but the bent blade wasn't terribly reassuring. I ordered some 125 gr Trauma heads instead. Several videos I watched of body shots on turkey showed significant damage and short blood trails. I prefer body shots to...
