They owners of the early run DS's were sent a prepaid UPS label to return their trigger units for a slight ADF modification and Scorpyd timely retuned the units to the customer right away with most receiving their units between 3-5 days.
After the fix was announced every DS left the factory with the upgraded ADF lever.
That is what I call fantastic customer support.

My new scope will be here tomorrow or Friday...
I think the 330 would be able to reach the target at 100 yards - but I'm not so sure about the 310. :lol:
All them markers are nice for target shooting (which I really enjoy) but I have never taken a shot at a deer over 30 yards in 33 years of archery hunting.
This is the last upgrade I will need for snuffy, and I will probably hang on to ShadowZone in case I ever dicide to finally purchase an Exocet, Phoenix, or Vixen II. :mrgreen:

Dang the 330 is even slower than the Sub-1 at 350. Ppl. shootin 100 yds at targets wid'em, :) That is farther than i shoot even jus in practice. Yup i have a DS n i don't shoot it all that far, 40 yds so fer. Been getting 1 1/2" groups, spect its alright n is cheaper n faster that the Sub-1 jus doesn't have all those Bells n Whistles

All them bells & whistles don't help much at hunting distances, which is the main reason I bought my Excalibur...
but I like it so much I just gotta shoot it all the time. :lol:

I'm all for new technology, but there is just no way you could dangle that bow from a tree stand in the dark and not eventually f something up.

mission cams stick out the sides to a point were you have to watch that they don't get mared up or chiped or bent. were I hunt
theres bolders in the woods. on another note I killed an I do mean killed a large spike horned buck today. with a matrix 350 se
arrows were diablos with 100 gr. swacker head. in the woods on the ground off a deer run @ 10 yrds . wind was cranking out of the north deer came down the run with wind to his back. big old deer with weird horns. been warm here finally cooled down a good night
for hanging. deer went 30' laid down an it was over. man that swacker hit like a fright train. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Why do you dang your bow from your treestand is that a Canadian thing? I could hunt with it pretty easy without messing something up. It's smaller, faster, quieter and way easier to cock and uncork than my Suppressor is. At the rate that cracked micro limbs keep coming up on here it would more than likely last longer Niger too. :D :lol: :lol: :lol:
This is your post from CBN and you admit that you are trolling. I think you're trying to get this thread deleted so you can whine and complain about something. Just a guess.

No Bigbowman, surprisingly that one was left up and a post that I made after that refuting some claims about timing issues and string changes was removed. I thought the post you quoted was more negative than the second but in the second I posted actual data from my logbook on my string and cable changeover frequency and the shot history on the Mission bow. Also that it took a nose dive from a 15 foot ladder with no ill effects and was fired once with crank cocker still attached with minimal damage that was repaired/replaced at no charge in 2 or 3 days. Kind of hit me wrong when all the talking points keep getting brought up about simplicity and reliability and how hard it is to keep a compound operating and that they are so fragile.

I guess it's all good and looking at that post I did take a solid shot at Excalibur and they have the guts to leave it up so I shouldn't complain and was wrong to do so. They are a GREAT company, best warranty in the industry and make some rock solid bows but do have some issues where they are pushing the envelope. That thread was basically a troll and it's still there which is a credit to their confidence and integrity.

Pretty common practice to use a rope to haul your gear into and out of a tree.

I haven't shot the Mission yet but I want too and will. I might think different about it after I do who knows. But you have to admit there is heck of a lot of new technology and inovativie things in that 1499 Mission and a lot of the same old same old in the 1199 Excal. I agree they are both way to high but you can see why the Mission costs more. There is a whole lot more of good ideas in the Mission and they are going in the right direction.
I think it's amazing that someone who hasn't even shot this crossbow yet, or owns one, or the crossbow even developing a track record yet would come on a company sponsored website hinting or suggesting that a single crossbow model could give an entire company a credible threat.
Without question, this Mission xbow has many appealing characteristics; and I suspect, is a very nice xbow.
Interestingly, I think that Excakibur has a higher percentage of "crossbow addicts" than compound crossbow owners or even Mission crossbow owners who would call themselves as "crossbow addicts".
I expect that Excalibur has a higher owner loyality than virtually any other crossbow company.
To me, this entire thread is strangly worded/titled. Sometimes threads are worded in a way to just elicit discussion.

I didn't read all 5 pages :oops: but personally I don't think it will give excalibur a run for it's money, the main reason ( for me that is) I want a xbow as simply and effective I don't need cams and all that fancy stuff.
