Re: High performance string vs stock

I couldn’t believe there was much difference in strings until I tried a Force 10, and the difference to the stock strings on my Micro and M380 was very noticeable.

Re: Warranty work

I didn’t realize until it happened to me and heard it for myself, but the limb “crack” is very audible.

I had my Micro 335 and Matrix 380 both crack a limb within a week of each other last fall, and Excalibur made them both right with about a week turn around.

Re: Snake Bit on Limbs! Pic

After hundreds of shots with my Micro 335, I had a limb crack on a hunt last October. Fortunately, I keep my Dad’s old Ibex at my place in OK as a back up. I was back up and going in about 30 minutes, but it still sucked. Excalibur warranted the limb, but now I’m gun shy of the bow. I’ve got it scop...

Re: Worl Sharp

We have the KO edition. It re-sharpens ok. I read and followed the instructions several times but I cant get a knife "shaving sharp". Most of the time they turn out better than they were but I always see these guys on TV shaving arm hair or cutting paper. I can't get anything that sharp. That’s my ...

Re: Worl Sharp

In my experience, for actual sharpening, a Lansky is hands down better than a Work Sharp, but my Work Sharp works great for “touching up” a blade.

Re: Free Reign

In my opinion, the only thing you can hope for on 3.5 acres is that the deer will frequent your corn feeder instead of the neighbors. Anything more than that is just for show. I’ve got 360 acres in NW OK and 200+ acres here in TX, and I plant over 30 acres of food plots on each place as well as feed...

I guess I just ain’t mad enough at any animal to brave that kind of cold anymore.

Re: Excalibur purchase!! Next steps? :)

In my opinion, Munch (on this board) makes and sell the best top quiver mounts. He also makes and sell metal cocking hooks, and after having one of the plastic ones break, I don’t use anything else. Interesting....do you have a photo of it or where to get more information? I don’t have pictures, bu...
