All this Micro info is helpful. Thank you.
One additional question. I have a new Micro 355. However, when you look at the bow, the only identity is Excalibur on one side, and Micro on the other. How do you identify the difference between the Micro models, 335, 355, etc...?
355, is either black or camo in the case of the suppressor.
As Bill stated, the length varies by 1/2" for each model. The 315 is a full 1" less, and thw 335 gen2 is 1/2" less than the 355.

335 gen1, has the same length rail as the 315(a gen2)

Altho, it also important to mention that outside of the internet crossbow world the "gen" identification doesnt exist. Its simply old sryle and new style from excal.
so if i shim my riser on my 335 a 1/2 i have a 355? :shock:
Kinda. Your gen 1 riser with an extra 1/2" (gen2 rail)will push 360 or more due to the angle of the riser.

one more thing...... the gen ones are the ones with the limb issues, or more limb issues and the gen two risers were made to lessen the limb issues? But the gen two are slower? if they are slower how are they still a 335?

sorry if im a slow learner. :(

The Limbs are the operatuonal part of the bow, so if something is going to give, it has to be the limbs.
Whether excal changed the riser abgle to reduce stress, OR adapted a design that allowed for better growth and sales across the micro platform is their secret to keep.

The gen2 335 isnt slower, its just that those who have tested them find the gen1 was faster than its advertised numbers. But 99.9% of excal owner have no idea how fast they are shooting, and most probably dont even know you can check . but at the end of the day 10 up or down, doesnt matter. Truth be told, the number associated with the given model, is a name, and thats it .
