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?

Re: Elk Size animal with 308 short ?

No Problem at all...

I'll be shooting a 100 grain X-Act off of stock Firebolts out of my Vixen II this year for deer.

I have no doubts they will be stuck in the ground after going through the deer. :thumbup:

Re: Love this Vixen II

I'll go along with you on a big boar hog... but for SC deer. The Vixen will shoot the Swhacker clean through and stick in the dirt.

I'll have some pics for you come August... 8)

Love this Vixen II

Man,,, I really love this little bow. Sighted in with a 100 grain point... super accurate! It's driving the Firebolts deep into my 3D deer at 20 and 30 yards. I've got several 100 gain broadheads ready to go for deer and hogs... I think I'll go with either the crossbow Swhackers or Grim Reaper's thi...
