Matrix Cost

Post by rattlerun » Tue Jan 29, 2013 5:38 am

Am I missing something? According to Excaliburs website, the difference between the Matrix 380 and 355 is $200. But the 355 appears to come without the R.E.D.S. ($70) or the Guardian Anti Dryfire ($80). So for just $50 you can have the top of their line? I realize some just don't want the 380 poundage, but you would think for the prices, the 355 would come with all the bells and whistles.

No you aren't missing anything. Perhaps their next bow will be a camo model 355 with guardian, cheekpiece and string stoppers. But for now, those of us who want the shorter, lesser poundage (The Vixen nuts) will have to add these items. In one of the videos I watched on Tube the 355 they had on display at one of the shows had the string stoppers on it. You would think that the guardian and the stoppers included as standard equip would prevent future warranty work from dryfires which "will" happen. I have added the aftermarket Guardians and stoppers to all my Excals and will have them on any future purchases. I have bought more Excals than most people to test and outfit me and my sons and grandchildren. And for their sake I demand as safe a unit as possible. Still, you can't beat Excal quality. It is the only unit (with added safety features) I want my babies shooting.

i look at the 355 as the ultimate hunting xbow. its a little lighter than the 380 but still has some serious horsepower. ive decided to get one for that reason. mine probably will never see the string stoppers or cheek piece.hope to see a 400 model and a 325 in the futur .also- i thought theres a new camo pattern on these. i havent seen a matching cheek piece for sale.

What about a 355 with an SMX rail.?.How light would that be. Sweet I'll bet.That would drop the weight and the price....hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Hey Bill, you listening?
