Micro Delima!

Post by -StinkBait- » Tue Jul 16, 2019 12:55 pm

Quick question.
I've got enough in pocket to grab a 308 short, wyvern arrows and baby bumpers at the moment. If it were up to you, would you hold off, put a bit more money back, and pop for a micro 355?

If speed is a factor then definitely buy the Micro 355! Otherwise the 308 will kill any game in North America! Good luck!

Depends, the 308 will be much better at the range in my opinion, and like said will do the job for you. I like the 355, but must now use a crank! Both are great choices, good luck with your decision.

I would suggest you shoulder both. That is more of a deciding factor. The 308 uses a smaller stock, with less LOP. That's far more important than speed.

There is also the 315. Don't forget about that little devil. There will still be plenty of them floating around.

I have the Micro 335. It's smack in the middle and fits me like a glove!

I couldn't get used to the 308 stock it was too small for me..

My neighbor loves his micro335. I have shot it. It is easy to cock, quiet, and accurate. If I were buying a micro I would look at the model that fits me best and has the longest rail length. My bd400 is 14 inches while the assassin is 15.

Are you hunting whitetail or mulies?

As mentioned both will kill anything you want. If you’re only hunting deer and speed is not a priority the 308 is a sweet little bow. I’ve shouldered one a few times and was close to pulling the trigger when I came across a smoking deal on a micro 355.
If you plan on hunting larger game the 355 gives you the option of shooting heavier arrows and still staying well above 300fps.
Good luck :D

Dang
Thanks for all the info. I'm treestand hunting in the whitetail woods. Wyvern sells the 308 (well, all bows) as a bare bow option which is awesome. Think I'm gunna pull the trigger. Should be seeing my hawke xb30 pro tomorrow. Anyone have any recommendations for arrows on the 308?

You'll be fine with the 315 or 308 for whitetails. It has more than enough speed and power for a fair shot. With those bows I would try the ones that come with the bow and a 125 or 150 grain broadhead. When you go faster you have to battle arrow flight instability with better arrows.

Thank you all so much for the input. The 308 has been ordered from Wyvern and is in route. She's going g to be rocking an XB30 pro scope, Gold Tip swifts from Wyvern and the micro REDS. Now, onto broadheads.
