I made the deal tonight. Sending payment tomorrow, and the bow is shipping Tuesday. Single Stage TT, I'm not sure what I'm going to part with yet, but thinking about the Matrix 355. Jeff, you'll be the first person i contact.

Got a Crossbones Scope from Anthony going on the 355 Micro, ordered rings, and a scope cover, going to use Zombie Slayers with 110 grain inserts, and 125 grain heads, probably Muzzy Trokar first edition fixed to start with. Looking forward to this one for several reasons. Thinking about just keeping all of the bows for now. I think I have a problem, but refuse treatment! :lol: :lol:

Thanks Bill. After speaking with you & Gene I'm pumped. I think this will be the real barn burner I have been looking for. Short, narrow, fast, and reliable. Yep, pretty stoked to say the least! :D

Dan,

You won't be sorry ! I'm super happy with mine.

I don't see myself using any other bow in my collection. :wink:

Do stock up on a couple boxs of Wheaties :lol:

Gene
Gene, had some time to play with the new toy. Put a new string on, cocked & decocked it several times, and you are correct, what a little beast! :lol: :lol: She stacks up the weight fast. I have some accessories coming that I want to installed before shooting her, so maybe next week! Got the DrStirrup bumpers, limb silencers, and 4x4 cocker. Waiting for my scope rings too which should be here Monday.

Sounds like Santa came early to your house Dan . good luck with your new bow .I am sure you won't shoot the others after you get it sighted in . I put my Redfield on mine and the scope seems longer than the bow . with a 456gn. arrow I am getting 321fps . I like that speed ,it goes thru deer like butter. have fun with it.

Took some tips from you, and Gene. Love it. She is one stiff bow to cock after about 80% travel.

Make you 4x4 as shot as you can and you will be fine.

Dan you have some great plans in the works. :wink: :wink:

I use a combination of a 4x4 cocker and the DR bumpers on mine also, but don't forget just how important that bowl of Wheaties is in the 355 Micro equation. :lol: :lol:

I predict she will be in the woods well before next season and would put a 10 spot on it .. 8)

Here she is, no name yet, LOL. I still have to make up some arrows, not sure yet what I want to do there. Thinking about some skull wraps, reflective, and some Ignitor's on the tail end, 110 grains up in the snout, and 125 grain heads. I have to work up the length I want too. Anyway, something to tinker with after the season ends. Did not install the cheek piece, not sure if I am, also opted for the black trigger in the single stage TT. Got a new style Munch Mount coming too! :D

Got some arrows setup for the Micro, and hope to get some shots in soon. Going with total weight of 440 grains with 125 grain Muzzy Trocar heads, 110 grains of brass,and Ignitor's in the tail end. Seems like I'll just enough room for the bow hanger up in the sky!
