Re: Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Bowster, it's not new, but that spacer was sticking out a bit, so I just trimmed it flush. Thanks.

I will do some sighting in this weekend while I have daylight hours to play in. I still have my Exocet, so I won't have to stop hunting at least. :)

Is this the typical protocol for this scope? I got one on a Phoenix I bought and was wondering the exact procedure for "dailing in".

Re: Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Thanks for the replies.

I think I will start with the arrows I've been using with my Exocet (2216's & 100gr Thunderheads) and go from there.

Re: Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Funny you should mention that Vixenmaster. I very briefly shot carbons in my older Exocet many years(8ish)ago. I had one bust in a deer back then which caused me to return to aluminums. I have had this Phoenix for just 2 days. So I've had very little experimenting time thus far. It came with carbon ...

Re: Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Has anyone had any issues with the Firebolts? A friend of mine has had consistency issues with them in the past. Was thinking of going to Gold tips instead. I don't have a whole lot of carbon arrow experience.

Re: Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Well that's not what I wanted to hear. And it's certainly not the case with my Exocet. It shoots them well(Thunderheads). With aluminums, that is.

Phoenix broadhead/arrow combo??

Just picked up a Phoenix that came with Excal's Firebolts. It has a Vari-zone scope on it. I put my 100gr Thunderheads on and I am getting very inconsistent groups even at 20yds(shot 4 arrows). All bolts/screws are tight and the varizone is set slightly over 300. I get tight, tight groups with my ol...

Re: Ontario antlerless deer draw results are in folks...

I just don't know how ya'll do it waiting for a draw every year. Up until a couple years ago the antlerless draw here in 64A wasn't really a "draw", as you were usually 100% successful year after year. As far back as I've been hunting here anyways. Probably the same thing in many other units I thin...

The bows are accurate, granted. But the shooter counts for more than a little.

Just sayin. :wink:
