Re: Weight or velocity?

Depends on what you are currently using... I prefer a heavier arrow over a few fps. My hunting arrows weigh in at 426 grain when tipped with a 125 grain broad head. I took the longest archery shot I have ever taken last fall and was a complete pass through at 42 yards with my matrix 310. She was rel...

Finally figured it out...

As we age our bodies tend to slow down and stop growing. "Everything Except Our Legs That Is".....
I know this is true because with each passing year it becomes more difficult to reach my shoe laces. :eusa-think:

Re: Need expert help!!

Thanks for the info :) Water.. I have old fashioned wall mounted registers in each room of my house. Father in-law passed away 15 years ago and the last one he installed was the bronze one and it is due for replacement. I kinda wondered if it was a corrosion related difference between the two... Als...

Re: Wraps or no wraps

Only bad thing about wraps is you don't want to leave them in a hot vehicle or direct sunlight... they will unwrap when hot.
I removed mine after leaving them in my arrow case behind my truck seat last summer.. :(

Re: Trophy Rock time

I will be re-supplying my mineral licks next weekend if possible. Over 3 foot of snow in the woods which is no problem, but I need to be able to get to my cabin first. :lol:

Re: #1 RULE OF CROSSBOW SAFETY

I preached and preached to my brother in-law about the triangle of pain when he bought my 330 from me. Last fall he was sighting in his scope using a boat cushion for a rest on his bench.. tore half his thumb nail off and screamed like a little girl. But he won't do that again. I also had to stop hi...

Re: Crossbows

The older I get, the more I like my Matrix 310 :mrgreen:
Have shot several deer with it and always hits where I aim.
From time to time I do think about picking up a BD 330 though. :crazy:

Re: #&^[email protected]*!

If you complete an RMA it will go to Excalibur's repair depot in Michigan. If you want to try it your self an impact driver is your best bet. Hammer in the allen socket before starting. You can also cut a straight piece of allen key and tap that it to the fastener, then heat the piece of allen key....

Re: Newbie wants to get it right

Greetings neighbor :) I do my hunting in price county. I own the Matrix 310 (about the same as the Grizzly) Big enough to hunt with in any Wisconsin woods, and easy enough to cock that I can spend a couple hours target shooting without any problems. I am 61 and have had hernia and back surgeries. 5'...
