Re: stryker 350 or 380

Lots of early limb problems and a initial trigger recall. Limb issues seem to have been resolved lately.

Of the two, I would opt for the 350 as it has been less problematic and the speed is where my preference is.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

easy 350 the 380 is very finiky as to the type of BH arrows it likes. It had some production problems. I know of one that had major limb problems.

Re: stryker 350 or 380

I got a 380 to do some testing with.

It's a little finicky about the arrows it wants fed. If you run a heavy arrow it shoots very well, but the recoil and noise are an issue. (and you will have a 350 f.p.s. bow) It is possible to get a lighter arrow to group though. You must sort and group all of your arrows for point of impact. G5 Strikers shoot well in it.

The factory scope is not what I would want on a crossbow. A Hawke is a much better choice.

The limbs on mine make a crackling noise when you cock it. I'm not sure it comes from the limbs or somewhere else. I've tried to track it down without success. No broken limbs with mine so far. I have around 150 shots logged on it and have probably shot many,many more than what is actaully logged.

There are a few reports of broken cable slides and you will need to keep a close eye on that.

I wish I had bought the 350 instead of my 380. The 350 can be bought as a bare bow for $529 You can then equip it with a quality scope and other accessories.

While I don't list them on my website, I can have one for you in a few days and set it up with quality accessories.

I have the 380 and love it! I put the HHA opt. On it with a Hawke L4 scope. I shot all my stock arrows and marked which groupped together. The rest I rotated to to find the spine and new cock fletching. This got them to all group. I shoot the ramcat broadhead. Out to fifty yards they are grouping within an inch of my field tips. I haven't tried past that. I've got over three hundred shots threw it and no problems. Took two turkeys with it this spring. I love it.
