Well, I had a tough weekend. About the 3rd target in, I started hitting to the left. I don’t like to make adjustments to my scope to compensate while on the course. Usually it is shooter error, or wind. It kept getting progressively worse. I then started adjusting after about 4 targets and chased it all day Friday. I still managed a bunch of 10’s but they should have been 11’s. I also had a couple of weird flyers, but there was nasty wind. We even heard a tree blow over on the ridge above us. I went to the practice bag first thing this morning and sure enough it was shooting about 4” to the left. This is after a ton of clicks to the right yesterday, I lost count. I re zeroed and headed out in a light rain to finish my final 10 targets. Shot an eleven on a gator right out of the gate. By the third target, it back shooting left again. And then the downpour started. Each shot looked like a giant explosion of water. I have to say the Swat X-1 really didn’t loose much in the rain. I have another bow that looses a solid 3 or more yards in when it is wet. At least it was a fairly warm rain I was stuck in. The zero got progressively worst and actually started going high too. On the last target I noticed my cross hairs are canted more in the scope. All scope mounts and Optimizer bolts are tight. I guess I’ll be getting in touch with the scope manufacturer Monday. There really is no shame for the scope, I am guessing it has 20,000 crossbow shots on it. I am glad I am finding all the gremlins before the Triple Crown starts! I have been shooting the X-1 a lot and giving KI feedback. I am very confident that when the X-1 hits the dealer shelves it will be a very polished product. I carried the bow over pretty rough terrain for about 28,000 steps this weekend, and shot it in a downpour for several hours today. Last month at the Winternationals, I actually carried it much farther and in rougher terrain. It’s compact size, ergonomics, and most importantly the phenomenal trigger are quite endearing to me. The more I shoot this little bow, the more I like it.
First 2 shots at the bags this morning at 50 yards.
Hey Brian! Sorry to hear about your scope issues. Sucks when shnit happens you have no control over. The weather sounds terrible to be shooting in. Sounds like the x1 is exceeding expectations though. Thank you for the updates and working with KI so when mine is made its perfect! 👏
