    Default Much difference between Excalibur matrix 355 vs 380?

    I know there is a somewhat $3-$400 price difference but is there much difference in performance or maintenance? just thought I would look at answers here rather than having to use google and end up in some nonsense website.

    I think its just the fact the 380 is slightly more powerful, guessing might be a little less weight.. but I would imagine to be barely noticeable. Overall both above average crossbows.

    From what I have learned, the only difference is in the draw weight.

    The 380 comes with an anti dry fire device and the R.E.D.s. My 355 did not. I would highly recommend purchasing the ADF if you chose the 355.
    I wish I would have bought the ADF before I needed it.

    What happened? Did you blow up your crossbow?

    Yes I did I ruined both limbs (blew the tips off) and the string do to a dry fire. It is my first cross bow and I was having so much fun I just spaced out putting in the arrow. I bet that the reds might have saved it. Excalibur took great care of me and I am a life long fan of them as well as Danny Miller from horizontal archery for the fantastic customer service. I would at least buy the anti dry fire with the 355. I love my 355 I am sure the 380 would be good as well. I felt the draw weight of the 355 was my limit due to shoulder and back problems, the initial reason I went to a crossbow to begin with.

    If you do a lot of shooting the 355 will be easier on you after a session at the range.

    Other than the power stroke and acc. the compact design is the same

    The 355 will be slower and a bit easier on string servings.

    Both are fantastic bows and I don't think you will be disappointed with either one
