Nice,

What kind of speed and range do you get out of it?

I never put it to the chrono but they claim 330 feet / second. This is the Exocet 200. Some friends of mine measured theirs up to 338. . Lets' face it I use it for hunting white tail deer and at 30 meters it sometimes go right trough the vital area using the Wasp bread heads. It does the job for me very nicely.

One thing I watch out in a bow is the performance in extreme weather. It would be devastating to have the limbs or the string break in very cold temperatures. Some alloys can break like glass in our conditions.

Another thumbs up is the lack of complicated mechanics which can jam if iced up. This one is simple and very good.

Yes that's all very well. It is a beauty. Must be real fun using it. But here in Malta where can one use it ? We couln't even try it out at Safi since we are limited to 9mm calibre.

 SAFI URGENT NOTICE
on: November 26, 2008, 13:28:32 PM by Vincent
All shooters please note that as of today, 26 th November, practice at Safi is limited to calibers "9mm and below".
This communication has arrived from the AFM just this morning.

It appears that the reason being given is "richochets that are landing in nearby fields".
I know what you are all thinking the obvious, namely that caliber has zero to do with this effect; A far more logical explanation is that the backstop needs some maintenance.

Please bear with us until the situation is somehow rectified.

Oh my, seems we're becoming self regulating on this forum. The minute there's some little problem we decide immediately what the future holds for us! Never the less, have a good day everyone, bit difficult with this lousy weather  Grin

Maybe at one of the Archery Ranges in Marsa (outdoor) or Pembroke (indoor).
