Matrix 350se

Post by seabee401 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 8:09 pm

Hi. Was wondering if anyone owns this model? Seriously considering purchasing this as it is $400 cheaper than the 355. But it is not sold through Excalibur. Basically the same bow as far as I can tell. I own a Phoenix and Exocet 200. Can't test fire the 350 because no shops in area sell them. Is cocking much harder than Exocet? I see it is 240#. Is it warranted by Excalibur even though its not sold by Excalibur? Any help will be appreciated. Don't want make the purchase without at least some input from anyone who owns or used this model.
Thanks
Tom

I don't have one but everybody that does seems to love them.

Excalibur decided to discontinue the Matrix 405 and the cut down the rails to make them 350's, a non-catalog item.

If I had any other Excl other than the "big" bows I have, it would be a 350SE/LE.

Go on Google and Google "Excalibur 350 SE" and you'll find plenty to read.

Good luck.

I've had mine for bout a year now and have logged in over 2500 shots on her without nary a hiccup. Have made a couple upgrades along the way( scope, arrows,custom Flemish string) . Great bow . Camo finish is sweet. Warranted by Excalibur.

I have one and Love It.... I have a couple other very nice, expensive and pupular model Excals as well, but this bow draws so easily, looks beautiful with it's full camo coverage in what I think is the Best Camo pattern they have come up with to date, and is so accurate even at 50 yards that I see it sharing many hours in the field with me.. It has become my favorite "Daily Shooter" for a very good reason.

ONE CONCERN........They have dried up to the point I that I now read that there are very few left.....if you have located one and are "Sitting on The Fence" you need to jump or climb down very quickly and pull the trigger to make it your's.

I previously owned and hunted with a Matrix 355 and this bow is everything the 355 is. However I feel its wrapped up in a full and IMO a much prefered full camo pattern... :wink:

I have contacted Dawn and confirmed that this bow will have the same great warranty as all Excals. and limbs with this distinct pattern will be available should we need them in the future. :wink:

My new m350 will be here on Thursday.
Would like to buy arrows tomorrow.
18 or 20 inch?
2219 's ok?
Would like to use 150 GR. Target points
Any info on must buy aftermarket items would help a lot.

Thanks
Bill

18" 2219's are fine n you can use 150gr pts. Make sure you have a good stringer/aid
