New x-bow

Post by Huntman2 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 4:51 pm

Thanks for the advise to the several people for advise on the 380's. I have been shooting compounds and recurve my whole life ( im 50 ) and getting excited about using a x-bow for the first time. I have shot so many deer and hogs in my life time with bows but cant wait to bust something with the new matrix mad max 380!!! Should arrive here to its new home tomorrow. Thx again

In my humble opinion, the Mad Max is one of the best looking xbows out there.

I received my new matrix 380, the only downfall is illumination on the scope is not working. Not a big deal there sending a new scope out today and just plan on selling it anyway. Ordered a Hawk XB-30 Pro to put on it and ordered a few strings from vixenmaster that will hopefully be here soon. I just need to get out to my workshop now to get the BE ZS bolts cut down and fletched.

Congrats on the new bow. Bummer bout the scope but sounds like your dressing her up nicely with the Hawke and Vixenmaster strings. Good luck and let us know how she shoots.
