I do also. I like the overall feel. The linkage is no problem for me. However, I understand that Excal will rework your trigger, Boo reworks some triggers, the trigger itself will get smoother with a few hundred shots, and TT exists. I have TT in my 380,400,405 Excals. I may get a 350SE/LE to go with my Aging stock. If so, I'll ask Boo to rework the trigger.
PS That dealer who said to get a BD380 vs the 400 may very well be correct for your situation. For me, I prefer the 400 but bet the 380 is a very sweet cocking and shooting Xbow.
