Looked at an Excalibur 380 today at Cabelas'. I really like the narrow limbs and the 3lb trigger. I wasn't overly impressed with the scope on the package. I like my scope a bit better. You would think for 1100.00 the scope would be pretty nice. The string dampening system looks like it would quiet the shot noise which is considerable on my Excalibur without the dampening system. Overall I like it. I will wait for the newest model that shoots 405 fps to get re-stocked and make a decision.
