Re: Micro 355

It may have a lot to do with your height. I am old, 5'8" and 150lbs and have no trouble cocking the Micro355 20 or 30 times and hardly feel it the next day. My BD400 on the other hand, is a lot for me to pull more than a dozen or so times. Now I just do 8-10 shots with the BD400 using the rope to g...

Re: Dr Stirrup speed test

I received my Boo string and installed it as per his instructions. I re-shot my test over the chrono and with everything being equal as my last test, I lost 5-8 fps with Boos string compared to the factory Excalibur endless loop string. I checked with Boo and he confirmed that it is to be expected w...

Re: Micro 355 questions

Just checked my 355 and there is a very small gap between the front of the limb and the retention bar, maybe 1-2mm. Definitely not 1/4”.

Re: Dr Stirrup speed test

I have found their products to perform as stated. I was not a big fan of the stirrup, but that’s just me. Same here, although it seems practical and well thought out, it looks too bulky to me. I didn’t order it. I have some strings on order from Boo, I’ll add them to the test when I get them to see...

Dr Stirrup speed test

Got my Dr Stirrup goodies yesterday so I decided to installed them one at a time and see how they affected speed. I have a Micro 355 with the factory string and was shooting 400 grain arrows for the test. The speed was measured with a chronograph at about 2 yards. First test, factory bow with no add...

I cannot wait to check these out, never seen them anywhere except the internet. Thanks Norm for the information! :thumbup: Let...

Re: Favorite excalibur scope

Is the illumination on the Tac-Zone supposed the be bright like a red dot sight or just bright enough to assist in low light situation? The lighting on mine disappears in day light.

Excalibur Quills vs. Proflight

I’m new to the crossbow world and recently purchased a Micro 355 which came with 4 Excalibur Black Eagle Quills. I want to buy more arrows and will purchase pre-made arrows for now. Are the Excalibur Proflight (0.001) @ $99 worth’s the extra money over the “regular” Quills (0.003) @ $69?
