Removing the "wraps"

This started with my vertical bow and then I noticed it on my Excalibur. On my vertical bow I have a drop-away rest that has like soft skin stuck on it. The soft skin was wearing off where the arrow sits. The accuracy was so-so. I noticed the Gold Tip arrows were getting little streaks on the "label...

Re: Naming of A Crossbow?

They come with names. We have an Axiom and a 380. I never thought to call them something else. I think naming cars, guns or even crossbows is old fashioned stuff. Like in the old movies where a car is Old Betsy or Ole Reliable or something. The names are funny though!

Re: Bison

I'm not an expert but I think my Dad is. I know he has been with his clients for dozens of bison in Texas, Nebraska and somewhere in Canada. When I was little I used to love to tag along with the bison hunters because these are really cool animals. I have seen probably 12 or 15 bison killed. Most of...

Learned a little about inserts

My BEZS's came with 110 grain inserts. It was frustrating when 2 of them came out when the bolt hit a target. Both times the tip stopped and the bolt came back towards me. I had been looking for some 110 grain inserts to replace them. After a long time I finally went to our archery shop and asked th...

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...
