Jeff, nice bow. For those of us who have not held or shot one. With the speed coming out of that bow, where do you feel this bow will be utilized at it's best? Thanks...

Speed @ normal archery ranges is overrated. Most of my shots are well under 30 yards. Long distance shooting is not what it's intended for. I will use my Micro Bulldog for open field hunting. I'm using the banshee for Bear this week because our baits are Max 20yard shots.

I have about 50 shots on it so far the serving looks great! Dented but not torn or separated. I have to say the trigger is excellent. No creep and breaks like glass. Pretty impressive for a factory trigger.. :)
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 harvest is at hand.

I have the serenity 308 and love it. They shoot great and at 40 yds no problem holding groups at 1 1/2 inches.

I like it! Feels like a little toy in my hands.... but.... sadly I’m too big for it, it’s not comfortable because of my big frame. One of the few times I wish I was smaller. Congrats on the new addition!!
I have not looked , or held one, it's probably going to be too small for me too. :problem:

Dave :roll:

Real shame, it’s a really nice bow at a great price point

I had the rail of a black Matrix 380 cut down several years and it chronoed at 310 fps and I killed a lot of deer with it with an Exodus head and Grizztricks. I messed up and let my friend talk me out of it when I bought a Micro 335. He still has it and he said he wouldn't sell it for nothing. Those little bows are balanced and easy to cock and a pleasure to shoot. Good luck with yours Jeff I know you'll going to love it.

My 315, really responded well my my BOO trigger. The less poundage really sweetens them up compared to the TT I found.
