It’s still raining here! I’m definitely ready for it to stop! As soon as I can get out, I’ll get a video made shooting this new Vixen II!

Yep... 280 fps on a 375 grain arrow is plenty of KE for my X-Act broadheads. They should shoot right through a deer.

BB tried messaging a pic. Had to do it here. Realtree hardwoods hd#1977 is the perfect match. Mine is a realtree ap I'm not fussy my vixen is all sprayed up even the rail.

The bottom 3 humps or fins on the cheekpiece that hits the flat part on the stock need to be trimmed and a small bit around the round part on the top of stock.
No big deal worth the effort.lm short but still find the stock extender a really good accuracy help also.

Well I finally got around to making a short video of shooting my new Vixen II. This little bow is definitely a shooter and a keeper! Not bad speeds for a 285fps rated crossbow. It has a new Boo custom 40 strand Flemish string and the rest of the bow is stock from Excalibur.
