Re: S5 Question

When you pull the rubber bumpers off and see the metal that holds them, take note of the shape. If it's a complete ball, they need to have atleast half of the ball shaved off to give you the longest life of the bumpers. Boo is giving some good advice here. It creates an air pocket under the rubber ...

Re: How old is old

I'll be 66 this year. Getting old sucks but it's a matter of expectations. I expect more and better!

So it would be flat instead of round?

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

Agreed, all kidding aside, I had to agree with Keith when he said "you need us". But not all engineers are good, but the ones that are, are true to their basic goal in their work. That is being a problem solver. :thumbup:

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

Exactly Keith! For the purposes of twisting, a Matrix EL string is about twice as long as a a Flemish string. You have to look at the twisted part as the same resistance to twisting as the end loop serving in an EL string.

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

Keith, its quite the opposite. Try it yourself. Danny was bemoaning that endless loop strings did not respond to twisting and I pointed my explanation to him. The length that twists is much shorter on a Flemish string. Think of what would happen if you served all but a few inches on an EL. All the t...

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

My matrix seperates the serving in less than 100 shots. Doesnt fray anything, just spreads the wrap on the left side primarily. Although polishing your latches will improve serving wear, you do not have a serving wear issue. Slight tiller issue? Would that separate a serving on one side only? Seems...

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

If what you say is true, and the string fibers underneath have not been damaged, get those string reserved by someone who knows how to reserve a crossbow string and it using Angel Majesty 0.036" serving material. Serving a string puts a lot of compression on it, and in serving it a second time, man...

Re: New 2020 Bows!

I for one would like to see a bow with moderate speed (360) that is super light weight. Something less than 5 lbs naked and the mainframe a composite a like carbon graphite or polymer with a bonded metal deck. Yeah, I I know I bought a 440 but it's only for entertainment. This year I'll probably onl...

Whatever you get, make sure it comes with a calibration weight.
