Re: scent free vs. cover scent

So here's the bad news... deer, just like humans can smell two things at once. So if your dog used the bathroom in the house and your wife was making supper, you would smell both when you walked in the door... :wtf: The deer can smell you and the fox pee at the same time. You really just have to pla...

Equinox string

What string maker are you guys using for you Equinox... I bought a new flemish string for my bow and after about 50 shots it's starting to have a little serving separation.

I'm shooting the 100 grain crossbow model that has a 1.75" cut out of my Equinox... It should be in the ground about an inch after pass through... but we'll see.

Equinox set up

Got my new to me Equinox yesterday... Crazy thing was the trigger was apparently bent just a touch, causing the bow not to latch the string.

long limber

My name is Mark and I'm a long limber... Never had a Micro, but I have had a Matrix 355, which was great. In the end, I have to admit that the long limb bows just feel right to me. I have had a Exocet, a vortex, and a vixen II... that's a sweetheart bye the way!! Just yesterday, I got lucky on an Eq...

Re: crossbow accessories

You don't need rail lube... just keep it clean. The string will need to be waxed from time to time though. Congrats on your 380!

Re: Love this Vixen II

Yep... 280 fps on a 375 grain arrow is plenty of KE for my X-Act broadheads. They should shoot right through a deer.

Re: Love this Vixen II

That 's a good looking Vixen!

And... how do you like the string dampeners on the Vixen?
