Re: Micro 335 Gen 1 question

Thanks guys for your info. I love this Xbow and it has done me right using it. My first Excalibur was a Vortex and I enjoyed that Xbow. Like the size of the Micro in a tree and blind.

I would say less then 300 + shots fired thru it. I have changed the string once. I have never unstrung when not hunting. Read...

Re: Thinking about a new ladder stand

Boo, If price is an issue you may want to try Dicks basic ladder stand, it's about 70 bucks. I bring a seat and back rest. The one stand I like and you will dose off in it is the Big Game HD 1.5 ladder stand. It's 18 feet to the shooting rail. Muddy also make great ladder stands that are very comfor...

Re: New string on Micro 335

Thanks guys for you comments. Just took a few shots with the new string and I'm good. My brace height is a little over 1-1/2. Will be shooting a few shots each day at different yards.

Re: New string on Micro 335

The String I got from Danny Miller. When I put it on it's a about 1/4 inch away from my brace height line. I will shoot a few arrows and see what happens. Thanks.

Re: Very agrivating sometimes

Longbow Joe, Yeah I get that a lot too. One thing that annoys me is that the advertising on the Xbow that they show shooting a hundred yards is they don't tell you how long it took to make that commercial. I know guys that put the money out and then they have to take to a pro shop to get new strings...

Re: Stirring the pot...Broadhead opinion

My broadhead of choice is NAP Spitfire Max 125 grain. Shot a lot of Deer over the last few years and recovered all of them. They fly real good and leave great blood trails. The most important thing is shot placement and about picking a broadhead that you feel confident with the broadhead either mech...

Re: NAP Spitfire out of a crossbow

Like I said I never had a problem. I have shot many deer with the same heads, but I do change the blades and the retention clips after each deer I shoot. The way I look at it is one it does cost about 20 bucks foe a three pack of replacement blades but it is well worth it knowing that I know that I'...

Re: NAP Spitfire out of a crossbow

I have been using NAP Spitfire Max and regular Spitfire's for a long time and never had one open up. I use the 125 grain and have great success. My xcals are Vortex and I switched from that to the Micro 335. They do make good entrance and big exits. Really good blood trails if they go that far.

Re: Excalibur micro 355 mechanical broadhead

NAP Spitfire Max 125 grain they are on my stocked Quills. Have never had a problem using them and they shoot real well. I have shot them with my Vortex and on my Micro 335. Great blood trails. I have taken a good bit of Deer over the years with them.

I have been Bear hunting a few times and I do use the Sent Killer Gold also, but I hang my clothes outside and then what ever the vegetation is in the area I will rub some that from the ground. One thing I also used and had to problem with is Thermacell. I used the regular one. Now I see they have a...
