I believe that the Matrix 355 was made as an experiment by Excalibur to make a sniper worthy crossbow. It has more than enough power to take down a good sized target from over 70 yards away. It might take some practice to get to that point, but the crossbow is not going to be the one holding your back.
Another thing to consider when purchasing this crossbow is that you are getting more than just a great crossbow in the deal. They have included one of the best scopes I have seen included with your crossbow package. Then they made sure that you have some high quality arrows to take out and destroy in target practice.
If you are looking for something that you can spot up and wait for your target to come to you, then the Matrix 355 is something you need to consider. There aren’t many other crossbows on the market that can give you this kind of power and accuracy.
As we mentioned before, power is what this crossbow is all about. With speeds up to 355 Feet Per Second (FPS), there is nothing that you can’t hunt with this beast. You have so much power to spare that you can sit back at a safe distance and unleash silent hell on your target.
One thing to keep in mind is that it takes a whole lot of draw weight to create that much power. If you are not Hulk Hogan, you are going to need to use a cocking rope to do the job. Luckily, they include such a tool so that you are ready to go from day one.
Excalibur prides itself on the durability of their crossbows. You can rest assured that you are going to get a crossbow that will keep you hunting for years if you take care of it.
This crossbow is constructed using Excalibur’s PowerLoad limbs. Independent testers have determined that they are 40% more durable than limbs that are found on other crossbows. Since this is typically the first this to go on a crossbow, you are guaranteed to get more out of the Matrix 355 than you will out of most other crossbows.
When you find a powerful crossbow, that typically also means that it is heavy. That is not the case with this Excalibur product. In fact, it is one of the lightest crossbow in any prices range.
Weight just 5.4 lbs, you might forget you are carrying the Matrix 355. You can where you need to quickly and be able to get ready to fire in no time.
If there is anything negative to say about this product it would have to be in the safety category. With no anti-dry fire or automatic safety, you need to be aware of what you are doing to keep everyone safe. Make sure that you engage the safety as soon as you load your arrow and use it as a secondary trigger.
If you combine top-notch power, top-notch accuracy, and one of the lightest crossbows out there, you are going to be paying a pretty penny. The key is to erase the price from your brain and figure out what you would pay for everything that you get with the Matrix 355. Looking at it that way will make you realize that the real price is much less than you expected. Here on earth, we call that a “great value”
