Re: Arrow life.

When I got started using my excal it came with 6 arrows in the kit. I then bought another half dozen. One season I used only 6 arrows by rotating them after I shot my Deer. The following year my pass thru's I hit rocks in the dirt and a few tree roots. I went true about 8 arrows. Like everyone has s...

Re: Micro 335 broadhead suggestions..

What I shoot out of my 335 Micro is stocked quills and I also bought some with Lumenok already installed. The broadheads I shoot is NAP Spitfire Max 125 grain regular and the new crossbow models. I have had great success with them and the quills. When I run out of the Quills I will get some of the b...

Re: Lumenok

My experience is like boo said shave them down a bit. My first one I did was lost an arrow when I was removing the nock in the arrow the heat put a stress crack in the carbon. If you have them without nocks in the arrow you should be fine. It is cheaper to buy them and install them yourself. Since I...

Re: Shooting Through Ground Blind Screen

My experience is that I roll the careens down a bit and I have had no problem. This way it's not costing you money on replacement screens. Like the other guys said is use a thermocell.

Re: Lumenocks

I bought some and installed on the factory arrows that came with the Vortex package which were fire bolt carbon arrows. Lost one arrow heat made stress crack. Really took my time on the next ones. Did not like how they seated but they shot ok with a little adjustments. Like brother Ron said check al...

Re: Rage hypodermics

I tried rage when they first came out with my compound and did have some problems with them. When I picked up first excal Vortex I was shooting NAP Spitfire 125 grain. Since then I switched to Spitfire Max for Crossbows and now I shoot the Micro 335 and have great success with them and great recover...

Re: Hoisting a crossbow up to a treestand

I have found in all the permanent stands is I make a loop knot and I run it between the stirrup and then loop it over the stirrup. I also cock before going in stand. Once it gets close you just grab the stirrup. The length of my rope I make never touches the ground , the bow stirrup is about the mid...

Re: Nap spitfire crossbow

I have shot the regular Spitfire 125 grain using my Vortex and then I switched to the Spitfire Max 125 grain and I have shot them out of the 335 Mirco. I did pick up the xbow 125 grain and have not had any problems with any of them out of both the Vortex and Micro.

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...
