The 405 noticeably heavier at the front and distinctly more effort to cock.
The 405 casts an arrow a whole lot faster and flatter. Consequently, you'll have to rethink your zero.
The 405 does not seem to be hard on servings (my latches are polished).
The 405 should not be shot at foam targets at 20 yards because they bury so deep there's not much to grip.
I have all three Matrix bows and I see a division in power class. The 380 and the 405 on one and the more reasonable 355 on the other side. Cocking with a rope cocker aside you can't go wrong with any Matrix bow, let alone any Excalibur for that mater.
If you're looking at the 405 think real hard about a C2.
The more targets you shoot the lower down the power scale you should go.
The 405 is not a fun bow, it's a hard core hunting rig. It's a matter of want not need.
Don...I love your honesty in light of the fact that you were provided and shot this bow for a good period before we all knew about it....I can attest to the fact that I have been a wants over needs kind of guy for too long....the economy and reality has quickly changed that.....I am 5'4" tall and feel that I am at the end of my rope so to say with the M380...I love my xbow...I just say to all....think hard and fast about why we buy these implements...to hunt...if we could throw a spear and save the grand for whatever...we would....(at least I think we would)....the only reason I would ever buy the 405 is if I won the Megamillions...other than that I am thrilled with my M380.....If it wasn't about marketing and speed we would still be killing all the game animals at 200fps and be thrilled...I have never heard anyone who came over for deer stew, cutlets, backstraps, burgers or whatever say..."before I eat can you tell me at what speed did the arrow or bullet hit the deer?....because if it wasn't at the latest and greatest I might choose to pass"...do I hear an AMEN????
