Re: Very strange!! Arrow test.

: Steve, was there any weather change? Front coming in? Temperature drop? Any environmental changes? Strange response :roll: Actually a very observative response! atmosphere is always involved in the influence of any projectile at extreme range. It may only be 100 yards, but that would be like 1000...

Re: My 380 is a 380!

One thing is for sure Dan. That 380 set of limbs are not acceptable. But till you try others, or put your 330 limbs on the 380 riser it could also be a slight difference in the limb mounting (riser machining) as well?? Good Luck with the limbs, that would be the easier fix.

Re: Arrows and accuracy

I've tried about every arrow and weight and found one thing, like galamb said, a recurve is a different animal, the instant stress when that trigger is released is what determines how much spine? The other tning OI have proven in the last 4 years with my 380's is they have to have more spine than my...

Re: Is anyone deer hunting at 100+ yards?

NO! when you get out 60 and 70 yards your taking a chance on gimping a deer and leaving one you cannot recover to die a slow dreadfull death. One step even whith their head down grazing is all it takes in the over 1/2 a second it takes the arrow to get there for that OH CHIT! what Happened! You want...

Re: Trigger Noise

I hear this all the time, and have to think, you moving and looking back is what the deer react to. I have shot at deer with others over 50 yards away, and they don't jump, when they see the deer shot kick and take off, they look, and then when they see it keeps running away, they go the same direct...

Re: Assasin

lotta nice features, but the traveling cartridge, I don't care for, thats a pain to disconnect if you don't want it on the string when uncocking, the extra steps to adjust strings, over 9 pounds, I think I'll stick with what I got, and not give up the extra performance for now. I think maybe add som...

Re: Most Sought After '18

I would have went with the 400 bulldog cut down with a Matrix front end fit to it, to give me the same draw length the older 405 had and would have had a personalized 405 Bulldog with an integrated cocker,, Im impressed with Xcalibur’s preventive thinking. I’d considered putting my original M405 ri...

Re: The new Excalibur crank

Peter we had a clumsy contraption to carry around already, we need or, I will, have a device that is integrated, that I can use as it is always there, or have the option of using a device, rope cocker if you will, when I want and am able. This is what I waited for, but that was my mistake not Excali...

I will say if Excalibur would have added a true integrated cocker that could be used on the Micros and Bulldogs, I would have went with the 400 bulldog cut down with a Matrix front end fit to it, to give me the same draw length the older 405 had and would have had a personalized 405 Bulldog with an ...

Re: Most Sought After '18

I'll probably have an Assassin, with all the garbage stripped off, Air Brakes, Gone, limb jax Gone, wedges on the inside of the limbs Gone, This is what I did with my Suppressor and loved the balance with the lightened up front end. With all this baggage on the front end I thought it was front heavy...
