Re: WTB - Micro or Matrix

The Sapphire has the same speed as the Grizzly but the geometry is just a bit different (shorter) which makes it just that bit easier to cock. Makes all the difference for folks with a bit less upper body length and/or strength. Fantastic all around choice. Yup, exactly. She can haul a 50# bag of f...

Re: WTB - Micro or Matrix

My 22yo daughter loves the Sapphire. Her height is a short 5'2", and it's the only bow she can use without dad having to "pull the string". She couldn't do the Axiom SMF nor the Matrix 330 when I had those models. I had a Cub for a little bit before the Sapphire and she could do that one as well, bu...

Re: Black ops bull dog 400

Just refreshed the web page... "Sold Out"
Congrats to the ones that bought one! I wasn't one of them, sticking with my Matrix 380.

Re: Black ops bull dog 400

Just ordered one Thumbs up for you. I'm still considering one myself, though I'm not sure why. SEW says it is only 5'/sec difference, but I'm not really needing more speed. Nobody has one locally, so I can't see if it is a better balanced bow or not. I'm thinking more about the slight increase in c...

Re: Black ops bull dog 400

I hope these sell out quick before my sleeping pill kicks in and then I order one and don't remember :roll: ... This is a great buy for sure. I have the same thought process. Though I am not sure I really gain anything other than a scope upgrade over my 380, after reading a bunch of forum threads t...

Re: Black ops bull dog 400

If I bought a 4th bow, the wife would learn how to use one and consider me "big game". :lol: As nice as it looks, I don't know that it is worth selling off my Matrix 380 for one. I'll just keep watching this thread and see what other testimonials show up. At least I'll have a discussion topic at my ...

Re: Black ops bull dog 400

That is a sweet price on a nice bow with the exchange rate. Free shipping to the USA as well.

Re: Listed on ebay

I've seen the same thing on my local Craigslist. Sent the guy a message and told him what to do to fix it, and also that I hoped it wasn't the reason he was selling it. I have also saved an Excalibur on one of our local hunting Facebook groups. There was a "Show your bow" post, and one member said h...

Don't do it, you'll come to regret it and end up just buying another one.

Re: Wheres Anthony

I think he's at the archery shop trying to figure which Excalibur to buy to fix his "devil bow" with. :)

Re: ??? Spitfire Shooters ???

I picked up some 4-pack Spitfire MAXX from Dicks with the $10 rebate and a coupon, but my kids haven't had a chance to use them yet in the Sapphire during the youth hunt. I also bought a pack of the DoubleCross to use in my faster bow, but I have to wait for the adult bow season still. I did get the...

Re: 350se brace HT.

I think the recommended brace height is 3/4" from the end of the riser. Download a manual here: http://www.excaliburcrossbow.com/support/ On the back of the factory replacement string package: When installing a string, It's important that its set to the correct brace height. For all Matrix Compact R...

Re: New Micro 355 has landed.... Review

Congrats Gene! I just unboxed my new-to-me Matrix 380 last night. I'm up to 4 bows temporarily until I get my 355 up for sale.

Re: Anyone using DB Killer on Micro 335?

I just went and watched the videos. Didn't know that existed, had some good info. Going to double-check my bumper positions when I get home!

Re: Anyone using DB Killer on Micro 335?

I have them on my Matrix bows and had the same question when I first got them. Best is to make them look as close as you can to the product picture, which should be the best place. This is what I read about placing them on the limb: The best place for the DB Killer to keep the most speed is located ...
