Re: SAD Too Week To Draw My Micro 355

This makes it easier to cock. I cant cock my crossbow with the standard factory rope but I am able to with this one. I'm only 5"2 and 13 years old.

Re: converting draw wt from crossbow to vert bow

My Dad's bow is getting 291 FPS. Is it more efficient because it has cams?

Re: converting draw wt from crossbow to vert bow

With all due respect Sir, that is not working out for me. Maybe I have the #'s messed up.

My Dad's bow is 28" DL
My Axiom is 14.5 DL
That's 1.93
My Axiom is 175 DW
Divided by 1.93
That's a 90 pound bow?
The Axiom get around 288 FPS. With the same weight arrow my Dad's bow is faster and its 50 DL.

You have to know the FPS and work backwards.

How much does fletching change things?

I saw a few different types of "new" fletching at the archery shop. Some are thicker, more square veins and some are smaller, veins. Some are 3 inches plus and one is just 1 and a half. How much does the fletching make a different for velocity and accuracy? What makes one better than the other? All ...

Changing bolts

I anticipate getting a Micro but I don't know which one yet. I have the Matrix and my brother has Axiom. Right now we shoot 20" BEZS with 110gr inserts. I was thinking of cutting them to 18" just to make them more user friendly with all the bows. Do I keep the 110gr inserts or go to 92gr? Is there a...

Micro 355 or 360

Besides the obvious 5 FPS and 5 pound draw weight difference, what makes these two crossbows different? Is the "Bulldog" Micro 355 shorter or lighter than the regular Micro 355? I like the size of the Micro a lot and I really like the power of the Matrix 380, so I am wanting to learn about the 355 a...

Weight or velocity?

Would you rather have 25 grain more broadhead or 25 more FPS? I am trying to decide what to use for hunting if I make a change.

New Kind of Hunting Today

Today I tried a new kind of hunting. We are travelling and I had a chance to try my slingshot. We got this on the hunt with Colton and finally figured out how to shoot it ok. Not allowed to hunt with it at home so I practiced a lot and it paid off on this trip. I am as excited and proud of this as i...

Turkey hunt

This past weekend my Dad took me to a place with turkeys. He called a few times and one showed up a few minutes later. When it got to the decoy I kept waiting for it to turn. I wouldn't budge so I aimed right at the top of the beard and let the M380 rip. The bolt broke the neck and cut through the v...
