Re: Hawke XB 30 Pro

I picked up one this year and it sits on my Micro 335. I asked a few questions on this site and got some good info. I'm very happy with it. Great scope. Shot a few deer with it and and the glass is clear and good for low light conditions morning and evening. If you are going to any of the outdoor sh...

Re: The perfect crossbow scope reticle

I picked up the Micro 335 a few years ago and it came with a Octane scope as the standard package. This scope I had no propblem with until last year when my eyes started to play a factor using it that age thing. I listen to a lot of good recommendations on this site about scopes. I ended up getting ...

Re: questions about a new scope

I upgraded to a Hawke XB Pro SR and I have had no problem with it at all. It's clear and the illumination is a blessing for low light conditions. So far this year I have taken 5 Deer from 20-45 yards. The scope a bit expensive compared to some others out there. I can not say anything bad about the s...

Re: Looking to update my scope

Hey guys I have been hunting with the Hawke XB Pro and so far I like it. I did take a Doe with it mounted on my Micro. So far no complaints. I had a few other guys look through it and shot a couple arrows and they liked it and are thinking about getting one. The season is young yet will let you know...

Re: Spitfire Broadhead Question

I have been using NAP Broadheads for a long time. The one I use now is the Spitfire Max 125 grain. It's a great Broadhead. They fly really good. As far as the crossbow ones I was told the retention clips are a little heavier on them. I have shot many a deer with them and had no problems. They have c...

Re: ??? Spitfire Shooters ???

I have been using NAP Broadheads for years. When they came out with the mechanic ones I tried them and that's all I use today. The ones I shoot out of my Micro 335 are Spitfire Max 125 grain with the arrows are quills with Lumenoks. I have shot many a Deer with them and have great blood trails and t...

Re: Rage 3 Blade Chisel Tip or NAP DoubleCross

My broadhead of choice is NAP Spitfire MAX. I have shot many of Deer and a Bear with them. I used them in my compound and my Vortex. I since picked up a Micro 335 and took one of my biggest Bucks. Never had one open over the years. They are one awesome broadhead. Good luck with your choice

Re: Zombie Tough

I agree also with the other guys to put in the do not shoot bin. I use these arrows in the garden to prop up plants. One thing I do check all my carbon arrows at 3D shoots or when they hit another arrow is run a cotton ball up and down the shaft if it catches you no you have a damage shaft.

Re: OT: Why do you kill deer?

I was brought up around hunting and got hooked at an early age. I enjoyed hunting every game animal alouded. I learned to cook everything I shot. I'm hooked on Deer hunting. I enjoy the entire part of scouting, stand placement and harvesting (killing) of the Deer. Now that older I'm trying to get th...

Re: Broad Heads Decisions Bear Hunt

I shot my first Bear with a Vortex and my broadhead that I used was a Spitfire Max 125 grain and the arrows were the stock Firebolts. The Bear went about 35 yards. It's all about shot placement and your confidence. The both set ups you mentioned will get the job done. Hey can not wait to see the pic...
