Do REDS make a diff under 340fps?

Post by Ferguson Outfitters » Sun Apr 07, 2019 12:55 pm

Whats the real advantage, the cons?

I personally don’t use them but have to wonder the true effects. I’ll even give them a whirl if it seems like a plus.

How much does a set weigh?

Easy to keep the brace height adjusted with them on.
Stops the string after firing.
I like Danny Millers bumpers better!

I have used them on all the Excaliburs I have I now use the GRZ2 and G340 with them on. I feel it stops the string or cuts down the string vibration . This maybe just me .

i can feel the weight up front soive taken them off my Matrix crossbows in the past all but my 405.without them noise is louder and shock seams a little more but for hunting id rather have a lighter bow. having the reds does make brace adjustment easier but i just mark the side of the rail with a sharpie. youd have to try to decide what you like.they do work though.

They help settle the bow down faster after the shot. and before when my bows did not have a adf it offers some protection in a dry fire absorbing some energy.
The Danny miller bumpers are lighter and work very well.

How would it make brace height easier? I have mine marked too with a hacksaw groove on the side and white appliance paint.

I really hate to add much weight to the bow.

Does it do anything beneficial for the string, my last string lasted 4 years and was still in good shape, admittedly I don’t target shoot all the time but it stays cocked for 10 plus hours sometimes with hundreds of kills.

Do they make any compatible out of polyurethane?

Could I fabricate something lighter with wooden dowls dipped in flexseal on the ends?

It's fast and easy to eyeball the string when it's 1/4" from the bumpers.

They weigh hardly anything. They do reduce vibrations, or at least the length of them. Doesn't do anything for the animals but does make for a better shooting experience.

I suppose if you plan to keep your bow forever a hacksaw line will work. But you've pretty much just flushed any resale value down the drain.

Wooden dowels would guarantee an eye injury. Please don't do that.

Ok look, I watched the whole Dr. Stirrup bumper video.

I’d like to try that but have a couple of concerns:

I don’t mind the string touching the bumper and the whole thing makes sense but what if it ain’t at the brace height I want, does the reds shaft move in and out? Or, am I stuck with whatever brace height touches the bumper?

Does the bumper system of any brand reduce speed whatsoever -vs- without?

I was kidding about the wooden stick.

I’m not considering doing this for quieting the bow, I have a piece of bike inner tube between the stirrup and my stirrup is wrapped with inner tube and duct tape. Its not that loud anyway, and I get many recocks taking up to four animals sometimes.

If its easier on the crossbow components, I’m all about it, but not at the expense of even 2 fps velocity.

My brace height line on the side looks no different from the factory line on the rail. I’ve never considered resale on any item in my entire life. I fully retired at forty years old, I’m gonna keep adherence to my financial theory since I don’t know anyone else that retired at that age.

Thanks

The best prices, and lightest weight bumpers are the Danny Miller bumpers. They are a good buy that won't effect any speed

I think Wyverns sells them, but Danny Miller makes and sells them. Give him a call.

Man, I’m chuckling. I know you fellas might be on a first named basis but I ain’t got a clue who these folk are much less how to find a phone number.

Thanks for any help.

Is this the subject, and for the Grizzly right?
