    I think Vent nailed it. I am at a loss to explain why Barnett continues to have the string latch hold the string too low in relation to the arrow height on the rail. If you used a capture nock,...

    Different limbs, Tim. My 59.5 limbs pulled 260# @ 16.5". The 64s pulled 288. My son cocked it yesterday, no problem, but he is 6'4", works out regularly, and is only 20. Guess that made it easier...

    Glad they are working for you. I have found slight differences in individual arrows, despite buying spine indexed BEEs and using LNL inserts. When I get an arrow right, it does not seem to matter...

    Some of those numbers are surprising compared to what has been reported here. I do think it's irrelevant for the deer. My 355 SS is quiet enough to be very enjoyable to shoot so I'm good.:smile:

    Joe, I found much the same thing a few years back with two of my vertical compounds. One was longer, more forgiving, and shooting around 275. The other was shorter, with a shorter brace, and shot...

    Joe, I like the way you absolutely wring a bow out before you accept that it is ready to go for hunting. Great job. Many more should do half of what you do. I was just wondering, and you probably...

    That's $325 off retail. As far as that model, I suggest you ask on Crossbow Nation in the Barnett section. Not many seem to shoot them on this board.

    The Beast!

    This week I traded with Tim 50, his 375 rail for my 330 rail. Not sure it was the brightest idea I've ever had, especially with me recovering from shoulder replacement. At any rate, this is the...

    First off, you have to have enough money to be willing to risk losing what you have in it. If it breaks you certainly can't count on the warranty.

    Second thing is the "draw length" issue. Not...

    Looks interesting. I'd have concerns about how you have to mount that scope but maybe with high quality rings it will be solid, if the scope rail is. I agree with DUKE on the patio as well.

    My experience is you may notice a difference with very long range but more importantly, fixed broadheads with a faster bow. My old Vixen seemed to shoot anything well. Moving up to a DTM 330, then...

    I have gone from recurve, to compound. A decent amount of 3D and hunting. Fifteen years ago, I fell off a...

    The similar performance is mostly due to the 330's longer power stroke. It is still a pretty compact bow for a recurve. The 355 would give you more performance than either, and still be relatively...

    I bought a new Hoyt Katera from him a few years ago. It was a good deal and Scottie was good to deal with. No problems at all. Check his feedback, but he has been selling on AT for some time now.
