Zeroing in Matrix 355

As of right now, I'm shooting 18 inch GoldTip Lazer II's with 110 grain brass insets, 4 inch Duravanes, slightly offset, firenok practice nocks, and 100 grain field points. I have got it hitting dimes at 20 yards. Now I'm ready to move it out to 30 and 40 yards. If I use the 30 yard chevron on the T...

Re: Matrix 355 Speed

I started this thread just so I had a starting point on adjusting my scope. Nothing more.

Matrix 355 Speed

I have the new Matrix 355 with string set about 1/8 inch back from the R.E.D.S. system. Will be shooting a new Boo Flemish String. GTIII's 18 inch arrows, 110 brass inserts, 2 inch Blazer Vanes with helical fletched, firenocks, and either 100 or 125 heads. I don't have a chronograph. Could anyone gi...

Re: entered the trigger

Is the Boo/Miller trigger job the same as the new trigger assembly that is mentioned in this thread. And does any one know the USA price for either one of these?

Re: Matrix Hard Case

With a little refitting, (3"thick foam on bottom in front, thin foam under forearm, and sliding rear foam a couple inches forward) the Plano Pillar case works great for my new 355. Can't leave Munch Mount on so I refit it with thumb bolts, nylon wshers and rubber gommets. On and off relatively quick.

Re: Excalibur Rope Cocker

If they should be free-wheeling and aren't, how do I get them moving? They seem so tightly put into the plastic hooks.

Excalibur Rope Cocker

Could anyone tell me if the brass rollers on the rope cocker hooks are suppose to be free-wheeling or does the rope just slide through them. Mine are very stiff, and don't roll without plies. (gently) Tried some W-D-40 and that didn't help at all.

Re: What's Your opinion

I have the Butler Creek on a TenPoint scope and am planning on getting some for my new Excalibur Tact Zone Scope. The covers that come with the Tact Zone don't work worth a darn.

Matrix 355

Just got a Guardian ADF for my new Matrix 355. You have to relocate the retension spring ( the one that holds the arrow against the rail ). After I was done, it seems that it sticks up a little too high. Does anyone know how close to the rail this spring should be?

Hard Bow Case

Does anyone know of a hard case for a new Matrix, with a "MUNCH MOUNT" installed, would fit into?

Matrix 355 Arrows

I've been reading these posts for the last month or so and just about everyone is giving great combinations of arrow and components for the Matrix 380. I'm looking for information on what anyone is coming up with for the Matrix 355. Length -18 or 20 Vanes -2, 3, or 4 inch (Straight, offset, or helic...

Re: Added LOP on Matrix 380

From what I just read, did you say that you can NOT use the C-2 Crank Cocking Aid if you have the Stock X-Tender on your Matrix?

Re: Final Arrow & Broadhead Pick For My 380

I know this doesn't relate to what you are talking about, but I'm interested as to where you were able to buy the Matrix without the scope (package)?

Re: Trail Cam Questions?

I can look at my pictures from my SD card on my used camera (ebay). But I can't watch any of the videos I take. Those have to wait till I get back to my laptop.

Matrix Cost

Am I missing something? According to Excaliburs website, the difference between the Matrix 380 and 355 is $200. But the 355 appears to come without the R.E.D.S. ($70) or the Guardian Anti Dryfire ($80). So for just $50 you can have the top of their line? I realize some just don't want the 380 pounda...
