    I use both. I don't feel any significant difference in the shooting of the 2 xbows; however, that extra 30# of draw weight is noticeable. For extended shooting sessions, I use the C-2 cocker with the...

    Looks good to me. With enough effort, even the Excaliburs can get quite quiet.

    Agree. It'd be the compound most Excal affendos mention as their compound if they also own a compound.

    Duke,
    This is exactly why I never considered this scope, and why both my "no expense spared" Matrix xbows kept their Optimizers/Duralyts instead this "best xbow scope". I'm a very analytically...

    If you wear bifocals, get the lined ones with the near vision a little lower in the lens than normal. Of course, get amber or yellow lens. The woods come alive, deer stand out, and it gets dark later...

    Have you shot a TT? The new 405s triggers are better than previous Matrix triggers. They seemed good to me until I shot both my 380 & 405 back to back.

    Have never even seen a Scorpyd, but since they can be the fastest AND have the longest arrow(except maybe TAC15) they should be the flattest shooting xbow out there. A question I'd have is , "Sighted...

    As mentioned, I went to extreme measures to enhance each xbow. The aging stock really quietens the bow plus the great feel of the wood. They are underpriced for what goes into them. To have a xbow...

    Clint,
    Over my 58 years of bow hunting, my range has increased every few years. In the 70's I had pin sights on my recurves and used mechanical range finders. I shot my recurves out to 40-45 yds...
