Did Excalibur send me the wrong limbs

Post by okie143 » Sat Oct 17, 2020 8:17 pm

I have a Matrix 380 with black limbs and rail. I had some splintering going on so I created an RMA and Excalibur customer service sent me a new set of limbs. After I sent my old ones back, per Excal Customer Service, they updated the RMA to read no return.

Anyway today I got my new limbs and the Invoce reads: Matrix CUB black limbs.

I have a Matrix 380 not a Matrix cub. This is what Excal web site says about the cub, " Excalibur’s new Matrix Cub crossbow is styled after our Matrix Grizzly, but uses a stock with shorter length of pull to fit the younger or smaller framed shooter."

I have a Matrix 380. I don't want to put cub limbs on a 380.

Is that what you see as well?

Thanks. :crazy:

Excuse my ignorance on the limbs but isn't the Matrix Cub only Velocity (up to) 285 FPS and Cocking Effort 95 and the 380 is Velocity
380 FPS Cocking Effort 130 and doesn't the limbs have a lot to do with these stats?

I really don't know so I am not trying to be sarcastic or anything.

It just seems the limbs would create more velocity and thus would have to be bigger and thicker.

Thanks for everything so far.

The combination or riser/riser angle and mainframe length is what creates the speed for each model. The limbs are all the same. Same for the EXO and Micro series of bows.

Basically the further back you pull the limbs the faster the arrow goes

Longer rail = more speed you are good to go pretend the word cub is not their.

Yes all the replying posters are correct, even the one who seems to contradict the others, but is really only trying to be funny.

If they look good, and work, you're good to go. My Matrix 380 is my new favorite lately. Anyway, shoot it at 20, adjust elevation & windage, do not change the speed dial, or magnification, if it''s low at 40 yards, you lost some speed, if not, :thumbup:

Still in doubt a simple phone call to CS would be the best way to put your mind at ease.

Called Dawn at CS and she said the invoice should not list cub limbs. She said, as was quoted on previous posts, that the limbs were the right ones.

I installed them, even though they were smaller than the original ones. However, I was able to cock it and nothing broke yet.

So here's to beating a dead horse. :eusa-deadhorse:
