Sent PM. With my M380 and 405s, I consider it a bad day that I can’t get 1” 80 yard 3-shot groups. The M380is an outstanding xbow. I have over 4,000 shots on mine/6 years/100s of hours cocked (hunting). Limbs are still like new. I know you’ve talked to Jerry (SSAS). The 20 inch Spynal Tapps fly a little , very little , better than the 18”. But they go past the Stirrup slightly.
I have been shooting a matrix 380 for 4 years now... they are just awesome bows. I shoot the Black Eagle zombie slayers.... they shot better than the ones that came with it. As far as broad heads, I started with the Schwackers.... and they shot and performed well. I just got tired of dealing with the bands. I went to the Bolt Cutters and never looked back. They shoot awesome. Assuming you have the string changing aid(a must) I definitely suggest an extra string or two. Cycle them through your practice sessions and get a little prestretch going. I try to keep the BH adjusted so the string is 1/8 to 3/16” off the stops. Good luck!!
Thanks for the suggestions I have ordered a string changer and spare string and like your idea of doing some pre stretch before I have to use it I've been using the little 90 grain Muzzy 4 blades in my compound for the last 20 years it seems the Mechanicals have a big following with crossbows then I've read good things about the bolt cutters as well
The string bumpers from Dr Stirrup really help quieten the bow and hand shock. The string lightly rests against the stop.
There’s a wealth of Excalibur information on the boo crossbow string site. Wrapping the Stirrup as he describes or as I’ll tell you when we eventually actually make phone contact will also quieten the crossbow. The noise actually causes the deer to freeze in place. More later.
Hello I made it back home late last night after helping a friend move he was flooded out from the hurricane. My bow came with the Reds on it the little string bumpers. I have read quite a bit on the Boo strings website look forward to talking to you.
