    Found another video that gives a great overall explanation ..address a few issues I had Like the loading of it with Broodheads etc. There is a specific load sequence to try and avoid slicing you fingers. But I still think things are going to be tight.

    Also, it's not two safeties (one for each) ....it's an ambidextrous safety.

    Good practical review, from a guy who repairs bows.

    Excalibur Micro 355 has a draw weight of 280 lbs, & a bolt speed of 355ft/s. The micro's limb design seems to be optimized to be able to deal with such high energy. Still, there are reports of micro's limb failures.

    Now:
    For the same bolt speed (360 ft/s), the twin apparently needs a draw weight of 360 lbs .
    That's an extra 28% energy stored in the twin's limbs compared to the micro.
    Also, the new twin limbs are more "square" shaped to be able to fit the twin.
    I do really wonder how the new twin limbs will perform.
