Dave at Wyvern can add a two clear coats of the rubberized soft touch finish during the off season. I have several stocks done with this finish which really appeals to my hands.
That's great to know, thanks for the info!

Thanks, I was intending to wait for her head to be up, but forgot about that at the last second. She didn't budge until after the arrow was already through her anyway.

I would like to see a lighter bow (carbon or titanium parts) an arrow brush, rubberized stock with a cheekpiece actually high enough for scope use. New bows should come with a rope cocker and a stringing aid standard. I would also like a peep sight option available or a red dot sight. Stainless or titanium hardware would be nice.

Laminated limbs. The Pro Shot ACP trigger on every model. Lose the TD feature, we all know how to use allen wrenches.

I would like to see the Matrix 355 and the Matrix 380 come back. Both were great bows and the 355 was bullet proof when it came to reliability.

I would like to see a wood stock designed for hunting for both Micro and Matrix bows (not a target style like Y25.)

They should come out with a Matrix 340 and ACOG Crossbow scope package.

I'm a simple man, I'd simply like to see more Coyote Tan color schemes. I can't beleive Excalibur pays tons of sponsors for sophisticated camo patterns when plane jane Coyote Tan will do just fine or even better!

How about an array of color options for the riser, rail, stock and limbs. Then you can build one just the way you want..
Different shades of brown , green, gray , tan , etc, to mix or match.

That's an easy one. Brownells has the ALUMA HYDE IN COYOTE or WOLF GREY.
Very good quality paint, I use the Coyote color myself on crossbows.

I asked the top dog at Excalibur why they don't offer non camo bows. The simple answer is camo sells. Solid colors not so much.

A cost saving idea would be to patent your own camo and stop paying royalties to the camo giants...lol

Its easy for me black is beautiful... :)

I agree with that idea. I like the ease of cocking my Matrix 380 and uncocking with the rope cocker, the Micro model is nice, but it’s a bit hard for me to not use the Charger.

I would want an ultra short, ultra light, ultra compact Micro AXE based bow, in bulldog platform, with an ACP trigger as standard with a matte no gloss, no Camo, OD green finish. If I was picky, I would also ask for rubber dipped parts that matter, and an OD Green string too. That would probably be the last bow I buy for a while, because it would be perfect.

I would call it the Temagami Edition.

I would want it to look something like this...

....as I have said in the past, my BIL has adopted my Gen1 Nightmare 335 (BadaBing 8) ....Saturday while out hunting he had the bow sitting on the truck....the finish (in black) on that bow is just sooooooo beautiful....I wish they would bring it back as a selection!
