My Review: The Gobbler Guillotine in my Exocet 200 (pics)

Postby Lorcux » Mon Apr 09, 2007 6:46 pm

I have always wanted to shoot the Gobbler Guillotines in my crossbow. I went with the 125 gr. GG so I knew I had no clearence with the stirrup on. So, I cocked the crossbow, removed the stirrup, and loaded a bolt.

I used my Block 4x4 but I box taped a folded blanket and folded old pillow on it. Then, I placed the homemade paper target. I wanted enough cushion so the blades of the GG wouldn't penetrate into my expensive Block.

I had my Exocet lined up with 100 gr. Wasps. So, I lined my scope up with 125 gr. field tips and was shooting dead nuts at 20 yards within a few shots. I decided to shoot one of my gobbler guillotines knowing that I might bend or break the blades. Well, I did bent up my blades but, I am glad I shot one. Let me tell ya, when that GG hit that target it sounded like a shotgun went off. I aimed at the circle but I actually hit about 2 inches low which is fine. I was more concerned about it going left to right more than up and down. I think it is okay if it goes up an down a fuzz, that is the kill zone ya know. Anyway, I could have pulled down a fuzz also, maybe? If it does shoot about 2 inches low at 20 yards then I guess I can aim a little higher. This shot would have done the trick at 20 yards. I'll be taking my xbow on opening day turkey season!

Was talking to one of the guys up at the bowshop and he said they ended up using a 2219 long enough to clear the stirrup .He said it shot still good out to about 25 yards then the large blades directed it all over.But he said out to 25 it is deadly .They went with 2219 because it still had enough spine .

Hi
Great thread!
I was at Archers Nook yesterday and picked up my first pack of guillotines and a pack of replacement blades. They were $45.50 for the pack of 3 4" and $20.00 for 10 xtra blades. I had some aluminum shafts cut at 22" and I'm sure they are 2219s but I'm at work so I can't check. I hope they shoot good because I want to see the mellon fly. I usually shoot gold tips like you are so I my resort to them but I was told that the more weight behind the guillotine the better it will fly. It's nicwe to see that I share this interest with someone and it will be good to share stories. I wish I had a digital video cam so I could post the shot, or hopefully kill. My wife is already on to my turkey spending so I don't think its in the budget. :shock:

That is what we are doing this spring. Both my hunting partner and I are hunting with our bow and crossbow this season. We are going for head shots on film!!!
