Excalibur Matrix Mega 405

Recommended Posts

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!

Cannot beat an Excalibur for reliability or accuracy and simplicity..

 

 

:agree: ... Cant say i've ever tried another brand but, My Excalibur *Axiom* has never givin me a reason too.. And shooting at 290 fps seems to be enough..

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!

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.....

 

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

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.

 My Excalibur Axiom is only 175 lb's and shoots about 285-290fps ( though it says 305fps )  and that seems to be all i need.. May upgrade to a Matrix only because i have peeps i'm trying to get into hunting so, i need an extra... :cupcoffee:

do you feel the width of your current bow is a disadvantage?

 

 

Only inso much as you have to be conscious of it.. hasnt posed a real problem..

No, that's 3" groups with FT's of 150g using their 18" Diablo bolts. I have been using the 150g boltcutters (Excaliburs) as BH's and really have limited my shots to 40yds and have not had any noticeable variation in the accuracy....not really interested in shooting further than that (on purpose) in a hunting situation...I am relatively new to Xbows so I really have nothing to compare the stock trigger to...with that said....the accuracy is crazy with this xbow so i guess the trigger is really not an issue for me...I am however going to try the Triggertech Matrix Hunter 2.5 at the PA show and might pull the plug and get it.....
