thanks

I did and don’t think I had to drill any holes. Whatever, it was easy enough that I don’t remember any difficulty at all. I love the Charger and use it on my BD400.

I don’t remember the drill size but I just fit it to the clips. I put the clips into the crank slots and put it on the stock, I had my buddy hold it in place and I traced the bracket with a sharpie. It was very easy to do really. You will have to drill your 330, and 355 Matrix models.

Dan, thanks for the info. so it involves drill 2 holes is all? i could not find any info online regarding the matrix stocks. thats the plan now instead of trying to come up with the $ for one of excaliburs bows that has a built in crank. just seen a crank pop up on the trading post this evening and waiting on the price being asked
Merry Christmas and happy new year

Jeff, it’s that easy. Two holes and your done, just make sure you have it lined up real good. One of the tips was to tape the clip in place before drilling, I did not do that.

Merry Christmas,

It's simple 3/16 is the drill you will need . I used a 2" c clamp to hold your mounting bracket that way you get a perfect fit . assemble the crank on your stock and slip your mounting brackets in place and trace them with a sharpie and then remove every thing and clamp the none threaded one where you marked and drill your holes . just take your time and you will be fine. if you want to PM me it will be fine.

Why not just buy a C2 crank. It will fit just fine as the bow is.

Night and day difference between the two of them. Weight, noise, ease of use all go to the new model. I would search for the best deal on the new one!
