Rubber grips Micro

I have noticed over time the rubber grip pads on my micro have developed some scaring... Not cuts into the rubber but light colored scuff,,, Not a problem, but I have noticed the issue.

Re: Micro 335 Accurate

I have been enjoying my new Micro 335 for about a month now... I agree, its my favorite Excalibur bow... I also onw a Ibex, both bows are very deadly but the compact design and balance of the Micro just feels like you own a true gem...

Micro String change

I just ordered a Flemish string for my new Micro... I have read, even with the stringing aid it can be a little fussy to swap... Any tips?

Re: Micro suppressor vs micro 355 vs 335

One other note... The suppressor with all its added sound gizmos actual slows the bow down a bit... Excalibur markets it around 343fps... Congratulations on the new bow.

Re: Sound suppression

Well said. I've taken deer out to forty yards and haven't had one jump the string. Which is a misnomer because deer have to bunch up before they can jump. So if you're worried, aim a bit lower. Quicker blood trails and faster bleeding out. Besides, being deaf, my beast sounds kinda quiet to me. :wi...

Re: Jus can't Help Myself !

Sounds great... I have found great delight in hunting on grounds of large acreage with no other hunters permitted... Over time, I have found it can take many seasons to workout all the options one has with large hunting grounds... Its a privilege that is unfortunately becoming less and less for many...

Re: Sighting in Micro

Great info from everyone... My compound can be very fussy with arrows but never any of my trusted Excaliburs... In time , I may look into Beman arrows and see what they make for Bolts... I have had nothing but great results with Beman arrows with my compound.

Re: Sighting in Micro

I'm using the factory quills and tips. I'm starting to be leave it was simply me with a poor shooting bench, I will try again this weekend and post a fallow-up. I find the draw weight not bad at all. The short power-stroke really helps. I'm guessing after 30/50 shots it would be time for a break/res...
