    note on chronographs: i recently learned....again that any florecent light near the unit will throw a error into your readings if indoors.
    I had forgotten this over time and moved closer to the lights because i can not see as well anymore,,,,,,at 49.

    the 20 yd always stays the same,as you slow the speed down the yardage between cross hairs get longer,that's why you have 20-40-60- .if i go slower ,i would be the same.

    if i left it on 360 speed I ,would have been close at 20-30- 40-50.I didn't check that after going back to laser2 .. Id say im real close to 360-365.
    if i shoot my 20 yds cross-hair at 30 yds ,i am 1.75" low same cross hair. right now im at 3 power ,JIM

    this is closer to were i want to be,i don't want 360 at 4 power. i can live with 20-35-50 .this puts me 1 pin to 30 yids little low . Ive had 1- 48 yd shot,and 1 -38 yd shot in last 20 years. although im hunting food plot to 40yds...

    "it gets worse" was referring to No1's eye sight:-)

    The only reason I set the 350 up with 20/40/60/80 was to have it the same as the 380 but after shooting them both that way since October, I like it because I shoot a lot and with those longer distances nailed down, for me it's a real confidence builder.

    It's interesting that you found the Laser II's more accurate for you. I started off with the 380 using my standard Laser II 410 grain arrows and they shot so well I never even considered trying any others and the same thing holds true for the 350.

    One thing I've noticed: I normally keep one arrow in my quiver with a 100 grain Judo head on it just in case I need to shoot something other than a deer. Being too lazy to switch the Judo head for a field point to shoot an arrow into the Rinehart ball, after a few uncocking shots, I noticed the very front of the shaft being chewed up. Yep, the spring arms on the Judo head were being slammed all the way back into the carbon shaft, ruining it. Speed and KE do have have some negative consequences

    Yeah ... ??? LOL You don't want them too dead, or down too fast either ... right? Speed & KE have a way of doing that on ya.

    Moon, I've been taking a few arrows or bolts out with Judo heads on them in my quiver for so long that I can't remember when I started doing it. I used one on a turkey here about two weeks before firearms deer season and the combination of the SZ 380, a Laser II and the Judo point was simply devastating on that gobbler. I noticed too that after a few shots that the prongs were bending back and damaging the bolt (luckily, only one).

    I did find a quick easy and fast fix to keep it from happening again. Go to the hardware store and pick up some of the lightweight Teflon, plastic or rubber washers that are just a little bigger than the shaft outside diameter. Depending on what you find, you may have to drill out the inside hole a little for the shaft of the Judo point. Put it behind the point and it keeps the prongs from bending back too far. I haven't had the prongs bend yet from the washer but so far one bolt has 7 shots with one and there is no damage to the shaft yet. It may not be a permanent solution but it works for now and doesn't seem to affect the flight out to 30 yards.

    I'll admit to shooting that Judo head into a javelina and bear 3D target for dozens of shots recently so I should not complain. I rarely lose or ruin an arrow. The arrow I took the 8 pointer with last month is back in the 350's quiver with a new Razor Trick on it. At my age, I'd better start using some of this stuff up

    Your buddy sent it to me

    Duke, I'll swear I could not tell that the buck I killed with the 139 fps medieval was any less dead than the one I recently shot with the 350. I think the trick is to put the arrow in the right spot, whatever the speed of the arrow.

    Congratulations on 8,000 ... Okay ... you get out that 139 and I'll shoot my 386 and my deer will be at the Pearly Gates before yours! (I'm still thinking you might be using poison broadheads on that 139 ... I mean ... what's it pushin bout 17KE?) LOL

    Minus 17:-)


    140 fps - 608 grains - 26.47 KE

    25 year shot so I guess the arrow had slowed down to the point it had almost stopped in mid air:-) but I guess it was around 20.0, enough to go through the right front leg and lodge inside the shoulder blade on the opposite side. If I had used a 400 grain arrow with a typical 4 blade head (Razor Trick?) I doubt it would have penetrated the hide

    I've had 2 shot opportunities this year (passed them up with the 350) at bucks within 10 steps that could have been medieval kills. It is fun hunting with and shooting that thing:-)

    8,000??????What are you talking about?

    Hi I am new to crossbows. Hunted with vertical bows for years and continue to. Just recently purchased a 380. I have a question about Parkers red hot bolts. Is the spine stiff enough on these bolts with 100gr pts for the 380? Total weight of bolt is 416gr. Chrono at 374fps. Also is thier enough foc with these bolts? I have shot them out to 60yds with field points and t-3 with practice blades and they shot together out to 50yds and at 60 field pts impact 2 inches higher than t-3. Which I think is acceptable dont plain on shooting at deer that far. Just wondering about the spine. I would be thankful for any comments.

    Yes and yes:-) That's about as good as it gets. The Red Hot arrows are very good quality arrows and generally considered as being more consistent than GT's.

    the red hots finish is the deal closer for me. The finish can take a real scrapping when removing flteching.

    They are beautiful arrows for sure. I probably would be using them now but I'm trying to wear the GT's out first but they may last longer than I do:-)
