It's the Excalibur Matrix Grizzly. It's 200 lb draw so it's legal in all states.   ;)

I modded it out how I wanted it. Excalibur has it rated at 305 fps but that's going bare minimum on arrow weight .. 350 grains. I finished most of my arrows and they're right at 418 grains. The FOC is at 16.66%.
I haven't chrono'd it yet but I'm guessing about 280 fps. I also figure the KE (at 40 yards) around 67 lbs. If the calculations are right I'm good for just about any North American game.

Thanks ! I went with the lower poundage for several reasons. One it's legal everywhere. Two the higher speed bows tend to be noisier. Three the Grizzly is light, shoulders easily and the price is right.
I added string silencers, REDS string stops, arrow retainer suppressor, camo scope cover,custom top mount quiver bracket and the Kwikee 3 arrow quiver. I also "rubber" taped the stirrup.
As for shooting it shoots sweet. It's less noisy than many crossbows. It'd dead on out to 40 yards. It could do farther but that's my self appointed range limit. I also refletched the Diablo arrows with 2" Blazers and went helical instead of offset. In my opinion the speed and kenetic energy are just fine for any North American game.  :)

I made a new upgrade to the Grizzly. I removed the stock scope and added an HHA Optimizer with the Hawke scope. After setting it up I've practiced with it several times. It's deadly accurate out to 60 yards. I'm talking just about every shot in a 6" circle. I wouldn't hunt at that distance but the accuracy is there.
