I have always thought the trigger on my Equinox and 350 are very good ,impressive considering the weight they hold back. I do not care for hair a hair trigger on my x bow in hunting excitement with gloves on to light a trigger is no good.smooth with no creep is good. Also I feel xbow shots should be kept short for hunting 35 under for me so the standard trigger has been fine for me I am hitting a poker chips size bulls eye at 30 yards with fixed blade heads all day so l am not looking for an upgrade . That said a lot of forum members love to tinker with their bows and do upgrade their triggers.

I agree with you. I have a 2 stage TT in my Matrix 330 but standard triggers in my Vortex and Matrix 350 LE. Both of the standard triggers are creep free and break like glass at around 3.5 lbs. Maybe I just got lucky with them. :)

I love 2 stage triggers, have them on most of my hunting rifles but they tend to be a either "love it or hate it".

If it was an option/accessory I would consider it. I don't have a problem with my current factory trigger - actually like it and don't see the need to tinker, but if a 2 stage was available that might change my mind.

Thanks for the feedback. I'very seen so much discussion about trigger tech triggers. I guess thinking every one is unhappy with excalibur trigger is wrong. I have no issues with the Matrix 380 trigger, just wondering if I was missing something.
