We shot a 3D match at Oneida Bowhunters outside of Butler, Pa. They are a great group of people and always set a fun course. Shot 15 up on 30 targets. Hope to improve for the rest of the season. I didn’t get any X-1 action photos today.
Very cool, plan on getting the kiddo into archery. Shes gonna be 6 soon and cant wait, just have to find the right gear to start her out with.

How does it shoulder when off hand??? Not sure if its any heavier than a Vortex Viper XBR but it sure looks like it could be. What glass did it replace and what would you say this does better for you???
I replace the stock scope that came with the X1. The bow now comes in at 9.3 pounds so roughly 1 pound heavier. than with the stock scope. It does move the center of balance a little more forward but nothing bad. I don't like front heavy crossbows and with the Oracle X on the X1 its still comfortable for me. What it does for me , is what the scope is designed to do. Gives me an accurate range and adjust one point of aim to that distance. I have trouble in the heat of the moment to select the right POI in the reticle on conventional crossbow scopes.

Over the last 2 days I have ruled out any flyer arrows in my quiver, all are true. Also verified that I have no POI shift when changing zoom levels on my Vortex Viper XBR. Gonna be grabbing some illuminated nocks soon, any suggestions??? Will be hunting with the Black Eagle Executioners, 100 grain 1 3/16" Tooth of the Arrow solid broad heads and some sort of illuminated nock. Once I get the nocks I will weigh the new arrows and verify my zero.

Clean-Shot Archery Nock Out Crossbow Flat Nock (Pack of 3) https://a.co/d/gUfesBT

These shot very well out of my X1 and the $ is reasonable. Their durability isn’t the greatest but they’re inexpensive compared to many lighted nocks.

I have a thread on here somewhere with a video of me shooting these nocks out of my X1.

Great nocks, they have their assembly failures every once in awhile . The adhesive seems to want to separate on a few, no big deal. Nock comes off led...They still work great .


When if/ it happens , call them, they will MORE than take care of the issue. I, personally , have had great experience with company.

Do you use these or the Nock Out Contender??? The link is for the regular ones and they suggest the Contender for over 350fps. Gonna pick up a few and try them out, thanks for the heads up!!!

Managed to smash an arrow at 90yds trying to fine tune the scope. Shot the wrong dot as I didn't want to group them and saw something orange fly away when i hit the target. was hoping it was fletching, sadly it was the nock and the shaft was split on one side. can't complain was my own fault as I mixed up the dots I was shooting at, talking with a buddy at the same time and working with a holdover as the reticle's don't lineup, complete fluke. . 2-3inch group sure if I am having a good day. This lumix is driving me nuts though, the dots cover up the target anywhere past 60-70 yds it seems, hat having to holdover or adjust the speed ring about 20fps slower to hit everything past 60yds (although it still doesn't seem to line up there either)
