Uh oh, I might have to get one of these batboys as a stealthy option in some areas I don't want gunfire spooking the already insanely pressured deer!
That thing looks sick…shooting 405 FPS?!?!?! Woohaa!

You add camo to anything, it immediately becomes cool.

No...I didn't switch out....I switched to the Excalibur Matrix 380 Blackout....An AWESOME simple Xbow...Shoots 3" groups out to 60 yds....Its more than enough bow for me....at 260 lb's and 380fps I don't think I need anything else!

 

GREAT BOW!!!!

Ahhh I read it the other way, got ya! Sweet! :up:
How is it drawing back the recurve design at 260lbs? Pretty easy or a bit challenging? Just wondering how difficult it is and would be with the 405.

Well, in all honesty it isn't that bad, but frankly I am at the end of my pull....meaning at 5'4'' I can just make it.... I could shorten the rope ever so slightly (which I might do)....Decocking is very easy as is removing the string....I really believe (and so do many on the Excalibur forum) that the 405 really is overkill....I absolutely love it...and that is with all of the stock equipment which comes with the xbow....

Was wondering the same thing.  Do you need a car jack to cock it?  :)

Nope....Average upper body strength...56 years old not that bad...the string does catch on the anti dry firing catch (ADF) so you have to make sure you continue to pull to the second catch...I know it sounds complicated but it is not!

Cool! How about letting one down to de-cock it? I know you can do that with the recurve designs.

Very easy...as is changing strings...etc...just a very simple design with so few things to go wrong...can even break it down and fit in a double rifle case....with just two bolts.....

Very, very simple...no need to shoot an arrow....use the same rope that was use to cock it....just an overall simple bow with so few things to go wrong...can change a string with no problem....can even break the bow down to fit in a double rifle case for ease of traveling!

Excalaman380,

Is that  3" group at 60 yards with broadheads?

If so, which heads are you using?

How is the stock trigger?

 

Sorry to pick your brain, but I'm on the fence with getting one.
