Which Micro model is the most reliable?

Post by XB I GO » Sun Apr 07, 2019 12:43 pm

Does one Micro model stand out as the one with the least problems? I know they have the same warranty but does one Micro have a better track record than others? Thanks

They are all pretty rock solid these days
Earlier models, maybe 335 and 315. But pretty rare you hear about any new micros having issues.
Suppressor and assassin have been Bullitt proof models operating in the higher poundage arena for a few years now

MOBUC Micro BD345
Xtra Micro BD310 "Small-Fry"

Had a 335 first generation, zero issues, and now the 355 with no issues! Stay around 400 grains or more with arrows, keep your brace height right and any one should be fine.

So 350 grain doesn’t work well? I have some 100 grain Broadheads and turkey heads that I want to use with my quills

Is it an accuracy issue? Penetration issue?

Yep, but I prefer heavier arrows overall, and more weight up front. You have aluminum inserts in the stock arrows which I don't like particularly. Best advice is to try what you have, and know what you get in terms of accuracy.

I've had the Micro 335 1st generation with no issues but one of my friends had a limb to crack which he got replaced fairly quickly. I now have a Micro 355 with no issues so far. I think all the Micro models are solid crossbows so its just a matter of which one you want the most.
