Re: Arrow Problem

I will try rotating a different vane down. But like I said, nothing has changed, just a different day.

Arrow Problem

I was shooting yesterday off a bench at 50 yds. Arrows are marked so I shot each one in the same order. Vanes are also marked so the same one down. Every time I was within 2 inches. Today I did the same thing except arrow #3 keeps hitting about 5 inches low. All 3 weigh the same. Number 3 spins true...

Re: Team Matrix 355 question?

This was a pm I sent to Dash. I had a Ten Point in this case and it worked great. Then bought the new Matrix 355 and it fit in just as good. I put 3 inch foam on the 2 wings (where the limb tips rest), I one small piece at the end of the stock, and a thin piece of moleskin under the forearm. I don't...

Re: Matrix hard case options

The smaller case works great. You might want to put in thicker foam where the limbs go. Stirrup stays on. The only problem I have is Munch Mount has to be taken off, but using wing bolts, it's real easy.

Grim Reapers

Just a shout out to the people at Grim Reaper. I bought a package of crossbow heads to try with my new Matrix 355. When I opened the pack I tried to spin the practice head and could not get it wobble free on 12 different arrows. Called the company and they sent out a new practice head and it spun gr...

Re: Target Question

If you put soap on to ease the arrow out, won't it also ease it in further?

Target Question

So today I was shooting my Matrix 355 and seem to have it zeroed in from 20 to 50 yard shots with 3, 1 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards, shooting into my Spyder Web target. I decided to try my hand at shooting some Slick Tricks into my older Glendale Full Rut Buck. I shot one field point, then one broadh...

Re: Matrix Case

Plano makes two different hard cases. The Manta (1133-00) which is huge. And also one called the Bow Max (1131-00) which is somewhat smaller. My Matrix fits in the Bow Max perfectly, although I have to take off my Munch Mount.
I think you would be happy with the smaller one.

Matrix 355 Stirup

Does anyone know what metal is used to make the Excalibur stirrup? Is it Aluminum, magnesium, or some other metal. I want to weld an extension onto it to give me a little more clearance out of my blind.

Re: Zeroing in Matrix 355

I don't have it set on any particular speed as of yet. Just looking to see if I could group. Which I can quite consistantly. I don't know the speed, so I didn't set it. Not real sure where to start at.

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...

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