i shot my 380 this weekend at different yards... i must say i love this thing!i'm hoping i don't have to worry about the whole limb thing but if i do i will still love it.all around this bow i will say is the best bang for the buck by far!i'm shooting easton power bolts with blazer 2 vanes.also am shooting a 125grain tip.i took the factor scope off and put a tenpoint scope on it.at 40 to 45 yrds i am afraid to shoot 2 bolts at the same dot!at 55 to 60yrds 2 bolts are touching vanes and the 3rd isn't far off!after all the stink about the different problem these crossbows have had i still wouldn't trade it for any other one and i have shot a good many different brands!

Well......i may trade mine for one that shoots since i have season coming up in 2 weeks and no limbs in sight..lol....getting a little nervous now!! Seems like a familiar story....However I do love the bow when it is shooting and I too even with my series of bad luck would not trade it.....kick it a few times maybe....but not trade. I am waiting for a 350 for a back up bow which should be here soon I hope!! So I guess that is saying something me buying another bowtech bow! Congrats on your set up Skull....and the best of luck this season!!

Nothing about these are bulletproof... further shouldn't bowtech give u what you pay for? Instead of saving themselves money at their customers expense?

sz 380

I agree, I love mine. Its one BAD ***** Cat! I have since sold my Parker Tornado. The Parker was a great bow but just a little heavy, a terrible trigger and quite a bit louder. The Strykezone feels great in my hands. I only have about 20 shots through it but it sighted in really nice with the Red Hot illuminated reticle scope. I have a Destroyer verticle bow if I have any problems. On a scale of 1 - 10 I give the SZ380 a solid 8.5 Fast, Smoothest trigger on the market and did I mention FAST! I am shooting the Carbon Express hunters bolts instead of the stryker bolts, I just like Carbon Express arrows. They both shoot about the same.

Good luck with that bow, glad you like it. Keep us posted on both the good and any bad about the bow. I have a friend that shoots the Carbon Express Hunter Bolts too out of a SZ380 and loves them. He says they bury a little deeper in the target than the factory bolts.

obviously , this is one of the best bows out there. I would have bought it except i leaned towrd the Ghost 400.
I think the next round of these bows for 2012 will likely be at the tiop even if they do nothing except correct the current limb issues.
Evey time I pick one up I LIKE IT MORE AND MORE.
