Re: 355 Micro Suppressor Noise..

I would add some weight n take the vibes out of that 355. There be a ton of energy in the short stout limbs that go wild on the shot. I got to where i had a 32 strand flemish on mine before i sold it because of that reason. I had rather drop 8-15 fps n have less shot noise n recoil My pal may get u...

Does it still have all the suppressor goodies installed?
It appears so the only thing that is different is that a couple fingers on the string leaches are missing.

355 Micro Suppressor Noise..

A friend of mine just got a 355 Suppressor and wanted me to check it out as he seems to think its noisier than he expected. I did shoot it and even tried a custom Vixenmaster string and it was louder and had more vibration than my 335 Micro. I was using my 15" BEE with 110gr brass insert and 125gr S...

Micro 335 string on a Micro 355???

A friend just received a Micro 355 Suppressor and I was wondering if my spare Micro 335 custom string would fit on his Xbow just for testing to see if it reduces noise. I wanted to check here before trying cause I don't want to mess anything up.

Rail Polishing

I have polished my latches with the same abrasive sheets Boo recommends and was wondering if the same sheets could be used to polish rail? What is a good technique to polishing the rail? On a different note I cut my BEE down to 15" and added a 110gr brass insert the switched to the 125gr Slick Trick...

Re: ? For the Micro suppressor owners

I had to polish the latches on my 335. One would think that Excalibur would use a more polished latch from the start. One quick question about polishing. Wouldn't you want to polish the bottom of the latches as well? It is kinda hard to get to while in the xbow. I bet you could throw the latch in a ...

Micro 335 Gen 1 or Gen 2?

In Aug 2016 I bought a Micro 335 and don't know if its a Gen 1 or 2. How can I tell which it is and what is the difference?

Re: 380 Matrix History

Any idea what could have caused this? I will say that dealing with Excaliburs service dept is very smooth and efficient..

Re: To Cut or Not

You will be good taking 4" off. By the time you get an insert and broadhead installed there is no way that you could stick your foot inside the stirrup without knocking the arrow loose. Just make certain you are staying over 350 grains total weight. Well if I cut off 4" I should still be at 350grs ...

Re: To Cut or Not

https://i.imgur.com/Ml62yqt.jpg As you can see from the photo the arrows are way too long. Total length is 18.5 counting the nock and insert. My question is how many inches should I take off? My initial thoughts are to take off 4" and when I add the insert it should be flush with the limb bolts. Th...
