Re: FOC Question

Thanks Don,

This calculator is very helpful. The longer shaft reduces FOC but only by a very small amount. The weight of the front insert and broadhead are what influence the FOC to a very high degree.

FOC Question

If all arrow components are identical and the only difference is the length of the shaft will a longer shaft produce a higher FOC or a lower FOC?

Re: Bulldog 440

Don,

Are you using the loner arrow for flight stability and accuracy or mostly for the additional weight?

Re: crossbow scopes

And I would add that they should change the parallax setting from 75 yards to 40 yards

Re: crossbow scopes

I too have been looking to see what is available for crossbow scope upgrades and was surprised to see how little is available. The Vortex Crossfire II looks interesting but the reticle seems a bit busy for me and I like plain and simple for reticles. Also it is an illuminated reticle which in itself...

Re: Disaster moose hunt

Very sorry to hear this story. It must have been very disheartening to have this happen on your moose hunt. I had a limb fracture on my Bulldog 440 while in my tree stand last week and I hiked back to my truck very depressed. It's difficult to hunt when you loose confidence in your equipment.

Re: Missed a Hunting Day

You certainly made the wise decision. Health and safety should always be the number 1 priority.

Re: Bulldog 440 Limbs

Excalibur replaced the first set of limbs super fast for me so I hope they can do the same this second time around. The issue now is that my confidence in my equipment is shaken and it's challenging to hunt with that frame of mind.

Re: Excalibur 2021

I would like to see the Matrix 355 and the Matrix 380 come back. Both were great bows and the 355 was bullet proof when it came to reliability.

Re: Scopes

Hi UPSMAN,

I have the brand new Tact-100 scope that came with my Bulldog 440. It's brand new and I have never opened the box. If you would like it just send me a PM with your address and I will ship it to you.

Bulldog 440 Limbs

Has anybody had any issues regarding the durability of the Bulldog 440 limbs? I have had two limbs split on me over the last 4 weeks and am looking for advise as to how I can prevent this from happening? I keep the brace height at 1.750 with the string .250 off the bumpers and never dry fire the bow...

Re: THUNDERHEADS

xcaliber, I have a package of the 100's that I will test this weekend. When assembling them there is the main ring that goes on after you load the blades and then there is the 'O' ring. After the 'O' ring there is a nother very thin ring with a large bevel on it which seems optional. Do you know wha...

Re: THUNDERHEADS

xcaliber,

I am checking out the 85 grain Thunderheads as they have a nice short profile which looks to be very aerodynamic. I am thinking with a 110 grain front insert they may fly real nice. Have you ever tried this combination?
