Easton XX75 2219 20inch
5 inch helical plastic fletching
120 gr. fixed blade (3) satellites
1998 ExoMag 185#
This setup has worked great for me but now I can't seem to find 5" fletching or satellites. Any suggestions for a comparable setup? May upgrade to one of Excalibur's newer models but would like to continue to hunt with the ExoMag. Thanks

Hello Guy, I have the matrix 405.
I was never having an issue with my crossbow, field tips. I have switched over and a few bolts shot good. The string stretched( cause my brace hieght moved to 1/2”. The bow simply is shooting left, high, right. Checked all mounting screws, etc. I have shot like six bolts, no luck. I see your shooting 20” bolts, did you have to slow the crossbow to get yours shooting good.
I have brass inserts in some black eagle executioners, haven’t shot them yet. I’m shooting diablos now. Puzzled as to what is happening.

Did you check the trigger screws?have to pull the rail from the stock! Shoot only one arrow to sight the bow in and Mark one vane and put that vane down all the time

Remove the stock and check the two trigger screws.

Ok will do, had the house get struck by lightning last night. I’ll shoot in the Am and advise! Is that because the trigger releases the string different every time?
Alright let me take her down and get everything right.

Ok it’s shooting good.
I have a friend who got me the lazer 4 by gold tip
Pro series. .001 straight. I put a 125 grain tip and they flew so true that my bow changed just doing that. I’m feeling comfortable to hunt with it right now.
My crossbow trigger screws were tight when I checked them this afternoon.

:angel: Had a LIL trouble with some cheap arrows wandering, thought it was my string. I come to learn it was my shafts. Junk in junk out. The gold tips have me building confidence. Very good groups! :mrgreen:

I have just purchased a Micro Suppressor any suggestions on best bolt, broadhead and grain combo to use other than the Quill and Bolt Cutters? I am new the crossbow forum so be gentle. LoL.. I have hunted for years with my compound but this is like starting from scratch all over again.. I just ordered my quiver mount from Munchmounts. He has been very helpful and I am very greatful for his willingness to guide me in right direction. If anyone has any mods or beneficial info I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to utilize the forums experience! Thanks in advance!
