Re: Vertical bows we owned

About the only thing I can cock without an aid is my BB gun :lol:
Try the rope on a 440 :thumbup: :sick: :crazy:
I cocked the 380 with a rope one time, but could instantly feel my back complaining so I went with the 310.
I will be purchasing a BD330 very soon ;)

Re: correct broadheads

I use the 125 grain spitfire with my Matrix 310 (same as the Grizzly) and have not had a problem.
My arrows tipped with a 125 grain broad head weigh 426 grains and had a complete pass through at 42 yards last fall.
