I'll tell 'ya HM I can't hardly believe that your Excalibur is any louder than my Parker. When I pull the trigger on mine you would swear that somebody just smashed two aluminum baseball bats together, that's how loud this thing is! I put Limbsavers on it but they literally did nothing as far as I can tell. I think string suppressors would be a waste of money from what I've read. Everyone who I've talked to who uses an X-bow says the same thing. If anyone has some remedy for this please feel free to join in.

As soon as my merit points/cash cards get here, I'm heading to Bass Pro for the new x-bow. After hitting the 40 year service mark, my company gave me a $1150.00 gift. These are pre-paid cards and Bass pro accepts them, how ironic is that? The Excalibur 380 is still at the top of my list but I will shoot a couple of cam bows just to make sure. Take a look at the Excalibur web site and watch the x-bow test and see how Excalibur stacks up against the cam bows!

Thumbs up

Before going to shop for crossbows you need to decide which one will be right archery set for you by reading out the tips and information provided on that set. I used to go for Safford Sporting Goods which provides me cheerful shooting. You need to make sure that your arrow should perfectly match with your bow.

Had to order the Excalibur 380. Bass pro shop didn't have one in stock. I looked at the Ten Points and Excalibur today and really just came down to stock feel. The Ten Points are small and compact but I didn't want a crank model and the upper models come stock with them. Ten Point makes a rope cocker that retracts inside the two handles, pretty cool. The Excalibur stock is just right for me, everything lines up without requiring any head movement. Should be in next Friday.

the Excalibur 380 is now home, picked it up tonight. Got it sighted in at 20 yds at Bass Pro so at least I won't shoot the neighbor's house One thing that is different is, I used 100 gr Muzzy broad heads in the past but with the extra speed they recommend 150 gr heads.

I thought I'd pass along some additional info regarding the 380 Excalibur. If your concerned at the draw weight, I am 61, in decent physical condition, and found no problem pulling the x-bow back with the rope aid. The 405 did feel a bit much for me especially if you would ever want to cock it while in your stand.
