AXE 340

Post by Sloppy Does » Sun Aug 04, 2019 9:47 pm

I don't post very much but I thought I would because of all the AXE questions. I got one the other day and I love it. I got the kyptek with the SDS. Shot it through the Chrono with all the SDS on 350 gr. at 335. I took everything but the airbrakes off because I like airbrakes it shot 344. Ive owned many models and this is my favorite. I just like the look and feel. Its not much different than a micro 335 but it feels better to me personally. It seems slightly quieter than my other models. Very smooth and high quality nothing cheap about it but the price. Its slightly smaller than my 335 but it makes a difference to me. The trigger is the same as my other bows not the new one. It comes with 3 arrows and no cheek weld. This is as good as any Excal models very nice. Before this my favorite was the 2015 Micro 335 but not now. It may be just a feel thing for me personally being that its not much different than a 335 but I love it. If it stays at this price it will be a big seller. Great looking and feeling bow. Thanks to Excalibur!

I own a Gen II 2017 Micro 335... After seeing reviews on the new AXE, I'm wonder if the 335 will be discontinued??? I also owned a IBEX... Love all of them...

Sooner or later the Micro 335 will be replaced. I know the Nightmare edition has been discontinued. I'll be hanging on to my little nightmare for a while yet! :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

That's marketing for you, "We need to always get the new and improved models." Otherwise we're missing out.
