Top 5 excalibur crossbows

Post by elkaholic » Mon Feb 24, 2020 2:23 pm

I was just curious about what excalibur's were the best.

The article reviewed excalibur crossbows. These were found them to be the best Excalibur crossbows on the market:

#1 Excalibur Crossbow Micro 355
#2 Excalibur Bulldog 440
#3 Excalibur Assassin 360 Strata
#4 Excalibur Micro Suppressor
#5 Excalibur Matrix GRZ 2

What are your choices.

I own one , an Exomax . So it's hard for me to be objective.

My opinion:

1. Vixen II

2. Matrix 355

3. Vortex

4. Exomax

5. Axe 340

I’ll admit that I’ve always been partial to the Excalibur Exo series crossbows.

A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Vortex
BD400
M330

However, I’ve shot none of the newer ones so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I have a matrix 380, a matrix 355, and added matrix 350(still in box and not shot) which are the only Excalibur’s I’ve ever shot. I love both. However, I honestly think the 355 shoots better and seems to be nearly just as fast. I picked up a chronograph and as soon as the lovely Ohio weather permits I’m going to find out for sure.

2 Exocet ( strings lasted forever)
3 Exomag/exomax
4 Micro 335 (great in a blind)
5 Assassin 360 ( the quiet crank )
