Re: Best Matrix/Micro Series Crossbow Poll

My choice is the 335. I have a Vortex which I shot for years and when I got the 335 it's amazing. 335 all day for me.

Re: String Silencers or limb savers

I have the bumpers that excal sales on both of my xbow which are the Vortex and the Micro 335.All the deer and the bear I shot did not hear anything until the arrow was thru them. I talked to Danny Miller about making it quieter by adding whiskers or limb savers and he told me that I don't need them...

Re: Nap trivex /cabellas lazer strike 2

I have not shot that model but I'm a big fan of NAP. What I shoot is the Spitfire Max 125 grain and they do some real damage. In the past I have used regular Spitfires and years back I shot there Shockwave. A lot of the mechanicals that they are making an xbow model. Great broadheads.

Re: NAP spitfire edge

I have been shooting NAP broadheads for along time. What I'm shooting now is the Spitfire Max 125 grain and I have never put anything on them. I have taken a lot of deer over the years. They have come out with a xbow one. The only difference is the tension clip is a little heavier. I have not had on...

Re: Turkey day molested by the lady warden

Hey after reading the regs you were perfectly legal. You were in your man made blind. The way the regs read is that you can not make one out of natural material. To me it is nit picking. I'm sure if you go to court you will win. Good luck with your decision. Keep us posted.

Re: Micro vs. Matrix

Seabee I was shooting a Vortex and loved that xbow. I shot a lot of deer and took my first bear with the Vortex. Last year I picked up a Micro 335 and what a difference hunting with it while being in a tree. The smaller size gives you more shooting lanes instead of being right in front shots. Even t...

Re: Bulldog down

Excal has a really good warranty. I would send the whole excal back they should replace it with not only one problem with it. Good luck.

Re: New Addition to the Excal. Family

Welcome. Excals are the elbows to own. I have had a Vortex for many years and took a lot of Game with it. Now I own a Micro 335 and it's a great compact xbow. Took a few Deer with it and love shooting this one too.

Re: crossbow choice or necessity ?

I would say both for me. I started using the crossbow when it became legal in Pennsylvania for Deer because I have a bad back that goes into spasms. I still take the compound out during early season. I used it during winter bow because it was a lot harder to take Deer with all of the clothes and not...

Re: danny miller conversation lol

Danny is definitely the excal man you do want to talk too. He never will rush you and he talks to you like you were old friends. Yes a couple of times I mentioned about getting something and he said you don't need that. All in all he is a great person.

Re: Little Brother Draws First Blood !

Congrats. I also will be taking the 335 out for the first time as the Vortex sits home. The size of the 335 is outstanding.
