335 Speed ?

Post by Timbrhuntr » Sat Dec 16, 2017 2:25 pm

I have had my micro 335 a couple years now. I have been shooting the quil bolts but don't really like them. I decided to make up a few of my own to try. I got out the chrony to test them. I never did shoot the quils through the chrony. The arrows I made up with a hundred grain field point weigh 406 to 408 grains. Speeds range from 350 fps to 360 fps. Never expected them to be this fast expected under 335 . I thought maybe the chrony was off so I got out my compound and shot a couple of arrows I knew the speed of. The speed was still the same as when tested before so the chrony is on. Has anyone else seen this with their 335. Everything on the bow is stock except arrows.

If it is a first generation model, they are overachievers. Mine got something like 345 with 370 grain arrows and a thick Flemish String.

Ive seen a couple high results with mine before it 315'd it. But nothing that high. Those numbers would be high even for a 350grn arrow in an super overacheiver. It was quite common for folks to be shooting in the mid 345's

In fact my gen1/Gen2 hybrid shoots a 395grn consistantly at 350. 362-365 or so with a 350grn. But with a 350 it feels more like a handgrenade than a cross bow.

For obviois reasons, dont touch that assembly. Dont even take the limbs off if you dont need to.

It so hard to choose... Just get one of everything.

Interesting. Shot 6 bolts ranging from 406.4 to 408.7 grains. Slowest was 352.8 fastest 364.2 fps.
Unusually take the string off and back out and lubricate the limb bolts so they don't rust in at end of every season. Not sure what gen assuming first I've had it 2 years and sure the shop had it at least a year .
