    I initially bought the M380 w/o having an opportunity to try a 405. The 405 has everything the 380 has but 25'/sec faster. I'm glad I have both but prefer the 405 for hunting. We all need a backup...

    Surely you're incorrect. As I understand the situation, if you like your insurance and your doctor, you can keep them. Did the cost go up?

    Of course, Tom knows I jest.

    Pathman,
    If the XB75 had a FireFly reticle that didn't washout the scope any , how would things have turned out? The reticle would have had a faint glow.

    Tom,
    I think they're doable w/o the improbable likelihood of modifying the basic Terra scope. I've used a FireFly and would prefer it for the type reticle in the XB75.

    XB75 Recommendations

    I love the XB75 scope. Though I use my Duralyt lighted 2-8/Optimizer on my primary hunting xbow, M405, and the XB75 on my backup xbow, M380, I actually prefer a dedicated xbow scope. If the following...
