Grizzly vs Matrix 310

Are the Grizzly and the Matrix 310 about the same bow? Same string, same bolts (18 inch), same size?

Excalibur Axiom Package with Extras

Aluminum and graphite arrows, Spitfires and field points, extra strings, cocking rope, scope. even sighted in. I would like to realize $350.00 after shipping, but make me and offer. Would add money and trade for a Matrix in the 300-350 fps range.

Re: Grizzly Trigger

Boo, It is not the length of the stock, it's the position of the trigger in the trigger guard. Look at your picture, trigger is hanging in center of trigger guard, mine is in the back, about 1/8 inch from the back. Have to press it with my finger tip.

Re: Grizzly Trigger

So, it's not me!!!!! Is there enough material in the stock to go after it with the Dremel and a sanding drum? The thumbhole stock is very wide, if there is enough material I can make it thinner with the sanding drum.

Grizzly Trigger

The trigger on my Grizzly is too far back in the housing (trigger guard) and it is hard to get my finger on it properly. Have to bend my finger and use the very tip of my finger to depress trigger. It that the nature of the Grizzly, maybe all Matrix? Been thinking of taking the Dremal tool to the st...

Re: 20" bolts from a grizzly?

I used 20 inch with my Grizzly, just makes it a little hard to handle in tight quarters. Made some 18 inch aluminum with 170 heads. Suprised the verticle remained the same but the horizontal was off 2 inchs at 20 yards!

Spitfire FOC 170 Broadhead

Since NAP has discontinued the 170 Magnum and there are no replacement blades available. How do the 170 FOC, 2 blade broadhead work? To have a 4 inch cut, the blades have to be 2+ inches long. Seems like they would be fragile. Are they like the other Spitfire mechanicals and fly the same with field ...

Spitfire NAP Magnum 170 Grain

So I bought a 3 pack of these and was gong to use them in Eaton aluminum arrows. I think they have been discontinued by NAP and making up 3 arrows is pointless. Anybody got any other information?

Re: The Grizzly Matrix

I have a Grizzly and 2 Axioms. Like the smaller size of the Griz, but both Axioms have better triggers. The Grizzly trigger is too far back in the trigger guard and I have trouble getting it pulled. I removed some material from the stock and that helped. I am going to remove the trigger group and se...

Re: String Jumping Research

The video showes how fast they are. With the excitement and bow reaction (recoil) there is no way you can tell what really hpppened when you shoot, the deer moves so fast. It is hard enough to know exactly where they were standing.

Re: String Jumping Research

Great information! I swear my deer that have jumped the string (2), actually jumped! But none of the deer in the video jumped, they all dropped and rolled. The video shows that It happens so fast, the shooter will never see what actually happened, what with excitement and recoil (bow reaction). I am...
