axiom to micro. Is it worth the switch

I traded for a barely used axiom after the season last year. I was shooting a stryker but with the limb issues they were known for I didn't trust it and came back to excalibur. Then at the show I got to see the new micro and after holding one it's been nagging my mind to make the switch. I just keep coming back to the fact that I gain nothing in speed. I currently have 3 or 4 dozen bolts and they would be a loss also due to being too long.
For those that have a micro is the drastic cut in size worth the money?

P.S. The monkey really freaks DennyF out

Re: axiom to micro. Is it worth the switch

I have a axiom also, last season was the first year i hunted with it and tha accuracy and performance was spot on. Its a great crossbow, and powerfull enough to hunt anything around.

As far as the differences in the two, the micro does have a little bit of advantage as far as speed goes, but i believe it has a slightly heavier draw weight. Your arrows could be cut down to work on the micro. It pretty much comes down to what YOU are looking for, for the average guy, hunting here in pa, i dont think the differences are enough to trade up, atleast for me.

The only major gain that i really see is he narrower front end, but i have never had a problem with the width of my axiom.

To me yes the drastic reduction in size is worth it especially if hunting from blinds as the issue with the limbs hitting the sides is lessened. The Matrix series while not as small as the Micro is a big difference as well. That being said the Axiom will kill them just as well as any other bow.

Re: axiom to micro. Is it worth the switch

Depends on how and where you hunt.
I went with the matrix 380.
for the speed. Arrow weight and speed kills. But speed multiplies more given the same weight.
For the 4 in. I got a 380.
