    Thank you for posting. Why them, why not me? This is also a time "survivers' guilt" increases. War is terrible! Liberty is greater, though.

    XB75 Review and Comparison

    This is an evaluation of the Zeiss XB75 compared to some of its competition and some higher level scopes mounted on HHA Optimizers. There's an old saying, "You can have anything you want but not...

    Duke, after having Optimizers/2-8 Duralyts(lighted) on both my M380 and M405, I've gone to the XB75 on my M380. Of the xbow specific scopes, the XB75 has the best xhairs, optics, and lower light...

    I think the idea is excellent. Options have a few problems, IMO . Example: 1) the scope upgrades seem limited, 2) no Zombies just Executioners - I used the 405 for my upgrade test. Executioners are...

    Me too. Makes the arrow perform like it has a lower FOC also. IMO, if feathers help over vanes, then something else is incorrect.

    I have both M380&405. Equally accurate. Easily rope cock the 380 but C-2 cock the 405 for back preservation. I do take rope with 405 in case I need to recock when hunting (hunt behind my house). For...

    I agree that the Excal's can be quietened significantly. Wrapping the stirrup significantly can help a lot. It's been considered a tuning fork by many.

    I do too. The only real negative I've read that may have merit concerns FOV, but I haven't found this to be a problem for me. However, I'm comfortable using higher power scopes at shorter ranges.

    Ramrod,
    I tried the Dagger and really like it. Home tunable is very nice to have also. The XB75 is my favorite xbow specific scope. You have a deadly combination, IMO.

    So there's no question in what I meant. The Duralyt is a great low light scope. In conjunction with an Optimizer, it can be used out to quite a range in very low light. The XB75 is by far the best,...

    I'm working on a XB75 review now. It performed very well, as expected; but nothing even approached the Duralyt/Optimizer when it really started to get dark. I'll post the review in the next few days.
