    Went to the range today to tweak the scopes on the Matrix 380 & Micro 355 to the NAP 125 grain Thunder Heads that I will use this year. I like to use the aluminum rear nocks in case I bury an arrow in the 18-1, paid off today! I spend less time these days making arrows, and strings & such. Lazy I guess. :rolleyes: Anyway, all set for fall deer hunting as far as the two main bows I plan to use, I will get the 330 Matrix dialed in too, but no big hurry for that. I'm going to get the three main guns I'm using on public land this fall. No lease yet!:( Anyway, a few pics. I have been using the NAP Quick Fletch crossbow version, and these things are tuff! Buried one is at 20 yards, the others are at 30 where I stopped. I'll take no more shots past 30 yards on deer, I just can't hold steady enough for long shots off hand anymore.

    Yep, they are not cheap. I just don't dedicate the time lately to make my own. I still cut / square / glue in the components, but no fletching lately. Anyway, for the few arras I fling lately, these fit the bill for me.

    That looks like it is working well.
    I also prefer the threaded aluminum nocks... especially for target practice.

    I am considering a
    IBEX Mega Matrix "conversion project"
    with EXO series riser and Matrix 380 or 355 limbs.


    Would you kindly post some images of the riser and limbs...
    In particular I hope to see "top view of limbs and riser"
    {or, from above & looking down} riser images.


    355, 380 and 405 Matrix bows are the ones I hope to see.

    This is a vortex rail bow (same as ibex rail) with matrix limbs installed without modifying the riser.limbs were modified alittle where the limb hold down plates hold the limbs an uses all stock hardware except my limb bolts washers . this bow has over a 14 inch power stroke with a heavy string . smooth shooter with heavy arrows an super accurate with bare shafts ,very little vibration.

    Hear you go. About the best I have up close. 20171208_165128.jpg 20180227_002049.jpg 20181011_151731.jpg
    Looking good Dan! I did a little pre sighting in just to see how close my Swhacker 125 gn heads are compared to field points. I'm very happy with this setup out of the KI Ripper. 30 yards:D. 20190803_232222.jpg 20190703_174650.jpg 20190803_123830.jpg
    The Matrix will be set up with the same arrows and 100gn 3 blade Swhackers as last year. 20181014_110430.jpg

    Same scenario for my other bows as well. Same arrows as last season but with 100gn 2" cut Swhackers. 20181117_080704.jpg
    I love my Swhackers!:D Season starts Sept 14th so I've got a few weeks before I adjust the scopes a few clicks.:D

    Thank you, gentlemen.

    That is what I was wondering about...

    It would appear that ...
    Matrix limbs can fit onto EXO series riser …
    "with minimal limb modification possibly required".

    Update: { August 7th, 2019 }

    I just ordered what I think are some Matrix limbs ….

    "IBEX SUPER-MEGA-MATRIX *SMF DESTROYER"
    might become a reality.

    Now searching for a SMF compatible Matrix riser.

    448 grain at 375 fps is impressive.
    ?? Is that stock ??
    or ….
    a Modified Frankenbow ???
    I would like to know how that was built.
    ...or which parts combination was used.


    The new "Slash Arrows"
    have set back into the shaft "inset blades"
    that look very much like your Schwackers.

    And, they also have a primary broadhead up front.... which looks like Muzzy or Bolt-cutter.

    Impressive looking and a bit costly.
    Fixed or Mechanical ???
    Why not... both ???

    Looks cool... but, I do not "trust myself with cams and cables"...
    I would probably break that compound bow somehow …. within a week.
