- Dr Stirrup Setup,
- cutting the rail,
-switching our rails and limbs (that are not broke),
-Ti64 Titanium Screws (these must be the culprit),
-wrapping the stirrup with non Excalibur coating,
-polishing the latches,
-not having an Excalibur licensed and trained shop work on your bow,
-putting a non-factory scope on the bow,
-If you use the CB in the USA,

....the freakin list goes on!

PS: in my opinion, Excalibur (Bowtech) took this opportunity to bash another manufacturer to make themselves look better....TTT issues were limited in scope and for a short duration....it has long been rectified...

....very similar to Excalibur's debacle 405....identified, owned up to it, fixed and moved on....

....Extremely poor marketing move Excalibur!

Guess if the bow shoots off by itself and you drop it or years ago mine shot off and jammed into treestand and broke scope, should they be responsible to fix it? Bill T and Excalibur fixed mine and would not hear of accepting some money from me.

Hard subject and likely protecting themselves from liability. When the going get tough most people walk away. Only your best of friends stick with you. Most times it is not who you expect to stick with you.

CHEERS!

My trigger falls in to the recalled triggers. Looks like I'll send it in after BOO fest. I commend TT for stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing..

I have two one is ok and the other I will have to send in . Called them this morn and they were very helpful ,just waiting for the box to come in the mail to send it back . and yes they can send back you old trigger if you request it . if they can fix it they will . It is in your interest to try to correct the problem .Not a big deal for me.

For my matrix 355 the serial number is on the upper front of the trigger,just use a brite light, no need to take apart.
Mine is fine, I have the 2.5 matrix hunter model.

Maybe a mistake on my part...

But I figure if the two TT's I run haven't failed with thousands upon thousands of shots through them, I am not even going to bother pulling them to look at numbers... :wink:

I got the email last night. I guess I've got a few bows to take apart to check serial numbers on triggers.

Is the SN not on the box it came in ?

I pulled mine out of the offspring, not on the list. Now I have to pull the one out of my AR-15 to check.

I also have a Matrix 355, I couldn't see the serial number, only a sticker that says do not remove.

....Woke "....BadaBing 8)" up in the middle of the night telling him I needed to take his temperature (rectally , of course) and proceeded to dive in....in search of that TT serial number....well, I was happy to find out that he passed and his "family jewels" are NOT included in the recall sequence....

....I am going to keep my TTT in there because for me it is much better than the factory one that came with it...I will take my chances....

....the upshot to taking him apart is that I got to check the fasteners in the trigger box and the stock to rail...and re-apply Blue Loctite.... He now should be good to go as we are Boofest Bound next week...

....One down, and a bunch more to go...
