Rope

Does anyone know what rope Excalibur uses with their cocking rope, or what Danny Miller uses with his string changer. After reading a lot of info here, I figured that it was Amsteel Blue 3/8 rope. Ordered some, and found it is considerably bigger. Paracord appears smaller.

Loose trigger

I installed a Trigger Tech trigger into my new M380 about 2 months ago. And have shot it maybe 50 times. Today I was looking things over and discovered that the whole trigger box could be moved. Took stock off and found the 2 Allen screws that hold trigger assembly to rail were loose. When I traded ...

Re: Waxing Strings / Ropes

Boo, when you say cranking aid, do you mean the string changer/brace height changer rope? That's the rope that is showing some wear. Also, where might one find cocker rope, and or string changer rope. (the kind attached to the big white plastic blocks).

Waxing Strings / Ropes

I keep my string waxed regularly, but I was wondering if anybody here keeps their stringing aid or cocking ropes waxed or use some other preservative on them? They both have some wear showing on them. Not a lot, but some.

Re: 2015 Deer Season Review (Video)

Very cool. What was your set up for the videos? Camera, mount, etc. How far were the shots?

Dave is almost to honest to a fault. I have bought, or responsible for 6 different crossbow packages. Don't think I would go anywhere else.

Re: Lighted Nocks or Not?

Not trying to start an argument, but Nu-Fletch Ignitors are no way easier than Firenocks to turn off. Just drop them on their end and they are off. Little pricey, but worth it.

Re: Bear hunt with crossbow

Shot a small one near Jelicoe, Ont. with my 355. Shot from tree stand at about 25 yards. Went about 15 yards, then the death moan.

Arrow Retension Spring

I'm setting up a new M380, and in the process, put shrink tube on the arrow retension spring. The bow shoots very well so far at 20 yards. My question is that the spring only sets above the rail about 1/4 inch. It appears that it should be a bit higher, but with the spring steel, I'm afraid to bend ...

Re: New Member, New To Crossbows, Matrix Questions

I know Vermont is next to New Hampshire, and Wyverns Creations is in Lee, New Hampshire.
Might be worth a call.

Re: What's in your "kill kit".

...my "kill kit" (never heard it said this way)...is more of a function of whether it is morning or afternoon, whether I am staying on post for the entire day or not, how tired I am and or whether or not I feel I can remove some of the stuff...Anthony :) For years our camp have called it our "TAG" ...

Mad Max

I have been thinking about a m380, and the Mad Max has caught my eye for the simple reason that it won't be the same as a couple friends bows. My question right now is, I have read here that some of the bows have had to have their limbs replaced and I'm concerned that in time Excalibur won't have th...

Decocking Problem

I have owned my M355 for over a year now and have been virtually problem free until now. Maybe someone can help me out. Lately, when Im decocking my bow, my claws from my trigger tech drop down as if it was cocked, which in turn makes it a pain to cock the bow next time. I have sparingly kept it lub...

It's been awhile since I have been on the Ausable, and it was anything but peaceful and quite. Hope things are better now.
