I have all three of my Excals. equipped with illuminated hawkes scopes .... The X...

Re: Hey I'm back !!

Thanks for all of the replies... I have not completely given up hunting, as I have now resorted to my Camo 450 4x4 Yamaha Kodiak quad. and a Foxpro remote control predator call with about 100 pre-recorded calls. Depending on the day and my mood, I choose either my mod.527 CZ in 223 or the same model...

Re: micro 355 crossbow

Everything Dan said x2. (Well, I have never used mine from a Pop-up blind ) sure nicer than My matrix in tight spots and heavy brushy areas. :thumbup:

The 355 micro has quickly became my favorite model in my collection of Excal's. :eusa-dance:

Re: Matrix 380 speed

I would think you would have to take into account the riser your 380 is using. Lately Excal has been modifing many of the origional 380 " swept forward " risers and re-maching the outer 5/8" - 3/4" of the limb pocket into risers that are not as swept forward as in the past ( a bit like the gen I ris...

Re: Micro 335 Limb Failure

If the bow your having issues with is a Gen II and they send you a Gen II replacement riser and new set of limbs you will be good to go and have similar performance to that you are used to. If it is a Gen I bow your shooting with the shorter rail and they replace the Gen I riser with a newer Gen II ...

That would be great.. I'd love meeting you and a couple other guys ( I talk with often on the phone in person ). Let me know when and I'll have the coffee pot on and possibly get the wife to do some baking before hand. :eusa-pray:

Re: noobie here, exomag, some ?'s

The bigger buck on the left appears to be growing a rack that may amount to something I would consider shooting besides his larger body ... I would most likely allow the other smaller guy to enjoy living yet another year. :wink: The bear on the other hand, :shock: looks to be older that your giving ...

Bill then told me about reading of your heart attack :shock: :roll: I'm wishing you all the best in getting thru this and hopefully into your hunting blind yet again this fall.........
