Re: Excalibur EX-PAC crossbow backpack

I don't have an Excal ex-pac but I do use my Crooked Horn non-typical pack, designed for a compound, for my xbow. It has 4 straps that hold it in place and two pouches for gear. My first Crooked Horn non-typical pack was purchased over 20 years ago. The only wear is the inside liner is falling a par...

Re: TRYING HEAVIER BOLTS

I started shooting 22 inch FMJ out of my M405 with 150 grain broadheads and standard inserts. They were extremely accurate; but at 40 yards they started to drop a lot. I then cut them down to 18.5 inches still shooting the 150 grain broadheads and standard inserts but I noticed the accuracy declined...

Re: EXCALIBUR CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!!!!!!!

They have delivered excellent service twice for me. I include that when someone asks me what I like about my M405.

Re: So Maybe

Dan if I ever see one at Cabelas again on clearance for 699.00 I plan on buying it. That and my M405 will be all I need. I only thing next to buy will be a coin (same sided) to toss to see which one gets to go to the woods that day. Heck, forget the coin I will buy another hook and take both! :D

Re: NuFletch lighted nocks

Sorry or the delay in responding. I bent the plastic housing by pulling it out of the bolt and twisting at the same time. I have applied a small amount of serving wax and now they come out easy.

NuFletch lighted nocks

Recently bought from lighted nocks from NuFletch; when I got them in I put them on my BEE. I bent one and called NuFletch, they sent me out several replacements no charge. I guy I spoke with stated to take a small amount of string wax and coat the plastic insert to help with removal after the shot. ...

Trophy Rocks

When do you plan on putting minerals such as Trophy Rocks out? The bucks should start losing their horns in our area. I was thinking about going out next Monday and starting the process of keeping minerals available until next fall. Thanks in advance, Don

Re: Lock and load

My hunt starts when I get in the woods with both my crossbow and rifle. I do however remove the bullet from the chamber or bolt from the crossbow when ascending and descending in my stand. The ride to my spot the gun and bow is unloaded as I have been stopped by conservation agents and the first thi...

Re: Opinions favorite deer cart

I like to use my Cabelas aluminum deer cart; it is light, don't rust, and wide enough not to tip over when going over uneven ground. I bought an ATV adapter last year from Amazon that allows me to attach it to my hitch on the ATV. No more lifting the deer up on the back rack so I can get to camp. I ...

Charger EXT Crank

Will the Charger EXT Crank work on the Matrix crossbows? I have a M405 and was wondering if it comes with an adapter kit for the type of stock I have on my 405. Thanks in advance Don.

Re: Matrix Mega 405 shooters, a question!

When I first got my 405 I ordered 22 inch FMJ with factory vanes, brass insert, and 150 grain broad-head. I shot bolt-cutters and Dirt-Naps- the bolt cutters were more accurate than the Dirt Naps. This set up was very heavy and I thought it would help prevent limb issues. I was wrong; after having t...

Re: Another look at 100 yard shooting

When I shot a compound 30-40 yards was my max. With my excal I would take a 50 yard shot if the conditions were right allowing for an ethical kill. I look at all the advertising that shows a xbow grouping at 100 yards on the range as purely marketing purposes versus hunting application. I have not s...

Re: Is anyone out there using WOOD ARROWS ?

I shoot carbon bolts out of my M405. I would be afraid to try a wooden arrow not matter how dense; but if they work for your setup that's cool. I was just given 2 dozen Ben Pearson arrows with broadheads along with a wooden recurve. Plan to hang it on the wall or sell it, but not use it to hunt with.

Re: Most Sought After '18

I believe the Assassin will be the bow sought after in the excal line in 2018. The price is higher than the rest of the line offered this year but that reflects the technology put in it. It appeals to a broad target audience so I see it pulling people from the "cam" market to the recurve. I showed i...

Re: Laser Ranging Sight

That would be a great addition to any excal, in the form of a scope. Give it a few years and they will have it for us. Hopefully the price will come down too. If I was still shooting my SwitchBackXT I might be tempted to buy one.
