Just because I can..... with an Excalibur

Post by GrassyKnoll » Wed Jun 27, 2018 11:23 am

I was bored last week so I decided to strip down one of my Matrix 380 Blackouts to clean everything and reserve the string...

Image

Reassembled everything and went outside to check my marks at 30 and 50 yards with field points...


30 yards: Field point
Image

50 yards: field point
Image

So now to test 50 yards with my broad heads.. I shoot spine indexed zombies at 18" with Blazers and 110 grain brass inserts and 100 grain tips and Lumenoks..

Two arrows were used, 1 with a slick Trick 100 grain standard and the other arrow with a Chinamatic Rage Hypodermic ( which I took two deer with last season. only had to change blades )...

Now the video's lol

video #1:

proof of impact and leaf and trig that held the leaf remnant:

video #2:

proof of impact to the pine cone. Note the two twigs are what held the pine cone in place...

As we all know you can't beat an Excalibur for simplicity and accuracy....

Try that with a whellie bow and you will loose your arrow.. Lol
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Great post. Im not surprised with the accuracy of any excaliber product fast or slow.

Just a little bit :D :D .. But 99% of it is I love the flight of an arrow and seeing the impact as the arrow hits the mark.. :thumbup:

Joe, you are so right. There isn't a more accurate bow than an Excal with a decent arrow or a more simpler bow to work on... That's all I'l ever use... No more wheels for me... Some of the new compound Xbows coming out now with 4 and five cables/strings.. no Thanks! LOL

Funny GK...I literally just stripped down my custom Matrix 410 and did the same thing. Dropped the block target at 50y and I trusted my zero. Result? Bullseye!

I agree, Ti fasteners can be cost prohibitive and when you show that kind of LOVE to one bow it’s hard to keep it a secret from the others. :eusa-shhh:
