Re: 440

We don't see nearly the same number of limb issues since the overheating of the limbs was identified. The limbs have seen an improvement after that so I think the number of failure will be dramatically reduced. As far as cocking, I know one knucklehead that cocked it at the ATA. :wtf: The weight of...

440

I'am very happy to see a powerhouse like the 440, but I'm also thinking about the past & fast crossbows (limb issues). Was another riser the(!) answer to all problems? At the other side: the limbs will be stretched up much further to reach 440 fps. ...Or did they (also) made a new kind of limbs for ...

Re: Gun policy will be a key issue in the next election in Canada

I'm from Europe and they did this in England also. Whatever Trudeau is telling you, this is just one of the many things to bring in globalism (Trudeau is part of this), which means: bring in many migrants (other cultures and the other believe - made possible by the Marakech contract for example; com...

Re: Lubricate(?)

Janesy: thanks for the link. Silicone spray is a nice option too, I think. Boo: you're right, safety first! Offtopic: i found this in my garden, looking throught the window at my livingroom - sitting on the couch. About 20 yards away: [/img][url=https://postimg.cc/dD2hm6Q2] https://i.postimg.cc/2jJn...

Lubricate(?)

I found here a video about maintenance a exalibur crossbow: (about 10 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h130NHrDeI0 The person in this clip is telling that he don't use lubricate for the rail, but a rag with a littlebit of oil. Later, he tells that when lubricate comes in the center of the st...

Re: accuracy

Thank you very much, Boo, XB I GO and nchunterkw! Very good and helpfull information.

So, in short: a longer and stiffer shaft will be the better bolt.

I hope I can find the recommended bolts, since I live in Holland. Otherwise I have to ship them.

Thanks again!

accuracy

Dear forum members, I wonder which arrow is more accurate at longer distances.... Diablo + 150 gr boltcutter or Firebolt + 150 gr boltcutter Shooting with the M380 Blackout. Personally, I think the longer (20) bolt is more accurate than the shorter (18) bolt (the vanes are also longer), but the spin...

Excalibur on steam / airpressure!

Don't know if this was on the forum before, but this is to(!) nice to miss:

What do you guys think of it?

I think this is a possibility to make even faster and more powerfull recurve crossbows, without using a slow hand krank.

Re: Difference string

Thanks for your information! If I understand this the right way (I'm from Holland, so forgive me if I understand you wrong.) the blue string has a little less stretch and a little less speed, compared with the grey string. Is that right?

Difference string

The Matrix strings were first grey and now they are blue. (Nice color by the way)

Is there a difference between these two?

- Do they shoot faster?
- Is there less stretch in it? (the old strings had a lot of stretch)

Thanks for your information!

Sounds Iike it isn't a factory string. Be aware that large loops are not uncommon in aftermarket strings and like Peter says, they are hard on limb tips. Large loops mean certain damage to limb tips.
I'm sure it was a factory string. Package with Excalibur on it.

Re: Broken limb tip (again!)

Mr. Troubleshooter, Sorry to hear of the issues you're having. Limb tip breaks historically happen when too much energy is exerted to the string which is normally caused by the arrow not being properly seated against the string. It is possible to have a faulty tip but that is much more rare. We als...
