Re: Where do you buy your Crossbow accesories ?

Like Anthony, i have made most of my purchases through ebay but when i wasn't happy with the inserts on some arrows i got from wyvern's, david was the BEST to work with. my next bow will be purchased there as a result; wyvern's customer service can't be beat.

Re: Mico 335 Nightmare limb spintering

Goose, one has to remember that the 335 fps that's advertised is the maximum using a 350 gr. arrow . Personally I refuse to use anything under 400gr. with my Excaliburs. I also use a heavier string, since I'm not interested having a "speed demon" crossbow. My main priority is to reduce the vibratio...

Re: Mico 335 Nightmare limb spintering

the limb on my son's 335 folded when hunting & i heard it way over in my stand! mine developed a splinter shortly after that so i had my limbs replaced as well. being 2 for 2 does not inspire confidence. anyway, i don't have a chrony but bill miquire told me that my speed would be down to around 315...

Re: Finally tested my new ACP Trigger

reiny, i was surprised when i had anterior hip replacement by how soon i was walking around feeling antsy at not getting out and doing. always tough to know when to schedule when you go from hunting season to snow & ice season to sugar season to no-snow-get-some-chores-done season. i would recommend...

Re: “Thoughts on Sunday Hunting”

We have had Sunday hunting for a number of years in SC. We hunt on Sunday sometimes but many times I don't take an animal because I don't feel like working or hauling it to the processor. Sometimes I just enjoy being in the stand and seeing what's walking around. i think a lot of city hunters who h...

Re: Favorite excalibur scope

a twilight came on my 335 when i bought it and yes, it's kinda big and kinda heavy on that little bow but i really like the uncluttered reticle, i like the revenge on my 350 but i like my dlx better. same with my son's trophy ridge/hawke. i see that the dlx price had dropped, maybe because of the ne...

Re: CROSSBOWS AND HUNTING DOGS

Goose52 you must be newer than most of us here. The answer is that a few years ago some kit-chen saleman joined the forum and was trying to sell his wares on here. After a while the moderators decided that kit-chen was a 4 letter word, hence like any offensive word it was denoted as spam . [/quote] ...

Re: CROSSBOWS AND HUNTING DOGS

If you ever get a chance to read one of Steve Smiths books you should. He is a great writer of Upland Bird dogs and Wing shooting. One of his best short stories that I love he discusses how he justifies buying a beautiful side by side. He does this because he doesn’t eat big Mac’s or something like...

Re: BD 330?

idt you can go wrong with any of the matrix models. idk what price you are looking at on the 330, but ebay has some very good prices on the 350, 355, and 380. Running about $150-200 less than the 330. here's the link again. interesting reading anyway: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksi...
