Re: micro limbs on a matrix

I imagine you are looking for more performance. There are a lot of older prematrix (exo) bows that were frankenbowed with matrix and middleton limbs/risers for high FRS I believe some were into the 420 FPS range. considering all the limb problems in the high power designs (which are probably due to ...

Re: Safety on or off?

I was always worried about XB safety while Cocking the crossbow and loading it (maybe a little too much, but maybe not after seeing some of the injuries that can occur). I like my fingers for some strange reason so as soon as it is cocked the safety goes on regardless of what I am doing and after th...

Re: 1 and 2 while hunting

While I prefer not to have to squat while hunting I have had to on many occasions and usually have not noticed any change in activity in game animals. Peeing is a different story all together. The first time I had to pee while bear hunting while in an tree stand I actually had a bear come to the tre...

Re: Is it my imagination? Re:2018 products

I was thinking that we need to start a Excal owners support group and 12 step program for all of the folks who have owned pretty much every Excal ever made. LOL :D It looks like we may have a few volunteers here! I still want a matrix 405. maybe in 20 years when I can find one cheap. ROFL like that ...

Re: Adventures of deer hunting

And I thought I was having a bad hunting season due to a perforated appendix! I had a day in the field so I did technically have a chance of a deer, but absolutely no sign in the area at that time. Still trying to find a doc who will operate and not sit on his hands.

Re: Bone Head Move !!

I had problems with both a bad scope and arrows that would not pattern and the experts here straightened me out quickly. hopefully your problem is a minor easily fixed issue and not a repair. good luck.

Re: Well Got out this morning for the first time this year!

Well Done for the season. I have been feeling crappy for several months and recently had a lot of abdominal pain so I went to the doctor and got some blood work done. He sent me to the hospital after he got the results and it was determined that I have a perforated appendix . the surgeon at the hosp...

Well Got out this morning for the first time this year!

With the strange weather I have not bothered to head out until today. I got into the blind before legal shooting and let the bush quiet down. The morning was one of the better ones to get out since today was basically between 2 heavy rains with wind so I figured it should be excellent hunting. the t...

I have an older Axiom with the Aluminum rail and installed dissipator pads in it just after I bought it at Bass Pro and one of the secondary pads is looking cracked or split. does Excal sell the replacement rubber pads and how much do they cost in Canada. Still shoots AWESOME even with a damaged sec...

Re: Ecal Customer service

LOL I called at something like 2:25 and they close at 2:30. the accident was not knowing they closed early on Fridays or I would have called earlier.

Ecal Customer service

I called Dawn Douglas this after noon and Dawn and Excal prove once again their AWESOMENESS! Last year during deer season I lost one of the fasteners and acorn nut for the plastic dovetail bracket that the quiver slides into. I had decided to hold off calling Dawn then because I had a temp fastener ...

Re: Bow not as fast as you thought?

I noticed that with the new dead zone scope that Excal sent me getting the scope dialed in was much harder than expected this fall (for various reasons). I shoot the stock bolts that came with the Aluminum rail Axiom and 100 grain broad heads/field points with a custom string by Vixenmaster with a b...

Re: Width??? Has it been a problem?

No matter what you shoot you will find that there are times that you cannot get the rifle/shotgun/bow into shooting position or find that they hang up in the bush. I just hunt accordingly you can never eliminate it unless you are standing in the middle of a field. I set up with the weapon I am using...
