Re: 40 Strand Dacron String

With these 'creepy' strings, how do you know when to change them? Someone else suggested unwinding the string and counting the twists. I forgot how many twists were considered the limit. Not sure if that would work very well on Flemish strings. My Micro has spent over 100 hours cocked so far... I a...

Re: 40 Strand Dacron String

Resetting BH is mostly due to excess wax coming out of the string and/or the braids and what not settling in and tightening up as the string is shot. I'm talking Flemish now. I think both of these factors play a much higher role in why a string stretches than does material creep. But after it's all ...

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

OK WAAAY OT, Boo, What you are describing is the helical length equation. L = (H^2 + C^2)^0.5 (square root of H squared plus C squared), where L = straight length of section H = length of twisted section C = 2* Pi* R, where R = the radius about which the bundles rotate (think you can basically use t...

Re: 40 Strand Dacron String

Other than 'creep', are there any more disadvantages of the D97? I have one on a Micro 355 (an endless loop) at the moment and switched it off with a Flemish string (not one of yours though) and the dacron EL was very noticably quieter and faster. It does require me to check brace height often so n...

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

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 like it would cause more pressure on one latch. Keith, unless the serving is really sloppy, one side will separate first. The s...

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.

Re: cheek piece and trigger question

I used a vinyl camo made by GunSkins (www.gunskins.com) on my Micro Nightmare. Put it on the rail, the quiver hood and the cheek piece. Was easy to do and is very durable. Not sure if they have Serenity, but they have a ton of patterns. Try polishing your trigger latches first, unless you want to up...

Re: New 2020 Bows!

..... 1. I am NOT a fan of the take down feature. To me it serves no real purpose...but that's me....also, I find that although the connection to the rail is rock solid, the stirrup is NOT and not that it rattleS but it is not solid as the screw on stirrup. 2. I hope that A. when limbs do break on ...

Re: Sighting In At Short Yardage

I have to shoot in my basement and can only get 18 yds. Should this be equal to 20 when sighting in? Should I be slightly high with my 20 yd mark? Without knowing your setup, here are some generalizations from my 400gr setup coming out of a 335 Micro. AT 0 yds my arrow is about 2" below the scope, ...

Re: Ramcat Hydroshock-X

I shoot Ramcat 125s all the time and love them. I don't see what is different with the "Hodroshok -X". Possibly just marketing. The 125s are a big bigger than the 100s you are shooting and I can just get them inside of a normal 4 arrow Excal quiver. But they don't fit all the way into my 3 arrow Exc...

Re: My swhacker experience

I shot 2 deer with 2" swhackers. Older green ones. One was quartering away and I hit right at the back rib and out near the shoulder. ABout 30 yds. BH was buried too deep in a tree to remove. The other one was a small doe where I hit a bit high and clipped the spine. I was on a hill above the deer. ...
