Re: Good bye my friendly companion.

I am not judging anyone, but being so young were all options exhausted? My wife is a vet technician and she comes home daily with stories of animal owners not being able to afford expensive surgeries. I do not know all the answers but I know sometimes the owners given up the pet and the hospital doe...

Thoughts on the Stryker Katana 385

I have had several different crossbows since my state started allowing them. I have a Matrix 380 and just got rid of my compound. I am looking for a new compound and I've gotten it down to two different models and would like any input you have from experience. I was pretty set on the Stryker Katana ...

Re: Advice on preventing a future miss

Thank you all for comments so far. It is great to hear some have used regular gun scopes with success. FWIW, I just ordered a dozen new BEE bolts from Wyvern creations and had 3 of them equipped with lighted nocks. A miss is a miss, and a wound is even worse. As depressing as it is I find peace in t...

Advice on preventing a future miss

Hello all, here is my recent crossbow hunt and what happened. I am hunting with a Stryker Offspring as I love the excalibur stock and the smooth easy draw weight of the limbs. The bow is topped with a Nikon Bolt crossbow scope. I practice all summer and as you know the crossbow scopes all have some ...

Scope question for Matrix 380?

Hello all, I got my new Matrix 380 and it came with a Tact Zone illuminated scope. When I sold my other cross bow ( compound) I kept the scope I had purchased for it, a Nikon Bolt. So I took the Tact Zone out of the box and compared the two. I like the red/green illumination of the Tact Zone, and al...

Re: Which one to buy??

Well I appreciate all the input here, I have made a purchase. While reading posts on here I found a member selling a brand new matrix 380 mad max package for a reasonable price. After much research it appears everyone that has a 380 loves it. I was leaning toward the bulldog 400 for its power but it...

Re: Which one to buy??

These are some great points. It looks like a few of you that have posted have the matrix 380. When I wrote all the numbers down the matrix 380 is very similar to the 400 in limb width, weight, etc. Hypothetically, if a straight trade were available would any of you give up your 380 for the more comp...

Re: Which one to buy??

Sproulman-I made this post for opinions, not lectures. CALM DOWN, CAPS ARE NOT NECESSARY. The opposite of your opinion is that anyone that gets a fast xbow is unethical. It's hard not to take that diatribe personal. I am not new to anything, a kid or anything else. I have been bow hunting for over 1...

Which one to buy??

Ok, I previously posted I had it down to the new Micro 355 or the new Bulldog 400 and was going to go with the micro 355. Well I had the chance to handle both side by side and now im back to square 1. The bulldog being 45FPS faster really wasnt too much bigger or any more difficult to handle. I love...

Help with bolt/arrow selection

Hello all, 1st time poster here and about to be new excalibur owner. Im trying to get things set up here and have a few questions. I got a compound crossbow last year and have had nothing but problems. I did a ton of reading and research of the winter and decided I was going to get rid of it and get...
