Micro 355 ?

Post by xbowhunter10 » Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:50 pm

Thinking of adding a Micro to my collection and I think I would prefer the 355 over the 335 . Can anyone who owns a 355 fill me in on them ? Also , how reliable are they compared to the 335 ? Thanks already guys .

You get all kinds of replies, but I'd suggest having owned both a couple times, you need to go shoot both. And decide.
It will come down to cocking effort as accuracy, hunting effectiveness and dependability are equal

Yep!
I have owned both, and the 355 is a big bow to cock honestly, the 335 will do whatever you need for hunting, and your back will thank you. I use a crank on mine now, so it no longer really matters.

I have a micro 355 and love it. As mentioned earlier it is a beast to cock by hand. I have a 380 also and to me it’s harder than the 380. I bought the charger XT so now it’s a non issue with both. As with all Excalibur’s deadly accurate.

I purchased the micro 355 this spring. I love it because it came with the C2 crank. I have a hard time cocking it without the crank. It is super accurate. It is light (I have never shot a crossbow before but many rifles and shotguns.) It is lighter than most of my firearms. As mentioned above it is a beast to cock.

All the above advise is solid but I would give a strong consideration to the Mirco 360 take down , the take down makes the bow much nicer to trans port, the bow is very compact and plenty fast .
If i were to buy I would call Danny Miller and get a 360 take down, leave off the sound deadening stuff and get the built in crank and have what i fell is the best rig out their .
Lightweight, small , fast, easy to case , and a great handling bow.

I've had both and the 355 definitely is harder to cock. I had one of the Black Micro 335's and it would shoot 346 with the factory string with a 352 gr arrow. My son in law still has it and he has killed about 1/2 dozen deer with it. He really loves it. I have the Micro 355 now and I have the Charger xt crank and I love this one also. Either one you pick will be a good one for you.
