New big foot stirrup

Post by ThunderXB » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:04 pm

Anyone know if the new "big foot" stirrup will fit previous Matrix models??

In cold weather when I'm wearing bigger boots it sometimes is difficult to fit my boot into the stirrup, sometime just squeezing the toe box into the stirrup.

This one would be of interest to me.

Yes. But it will bring the bow closer to you when you're cocking, increasing the cocking effort somewhat.

Is it longer than the previous ones. If so how much? And how much do they cost??

Don't know what the cost is and I didn't compare against another stirrup. But it appeared to be about an inch.

I think it is almost big enough for Don to put both feet in . :shock: :lol:

Well, in my case anyway, I'm 6' 7" (and 285 lbs) so the cocking length usually isn't an issue, but getting size 13 insulated pac-type boots into the stirrup is. :roll:

I held it at the ATA and the difference in size is noticeable and additionally has sound dampening rubber added to it.
