A mating of 2 "Power Houses"...
That was an easy call wasn't it ?? Lol Just waiting on some manufacturer spec's now?
With the ability to un-cock without shooting and @ 350fps with 400gr/Splinters... These will sell like "Hot Cakes"!
Bring on them specs, Barrie!
I see where your going from that 385 gr post but Just waiting to hear it from the horses mouth... Think your right though!
That,s cool! If I knew how to adj cam timing, make my own cables, strings for one an tune it I may like one a lot . as long as I can take something all apart an fix about anything on it I,m a happy camper
Nice, but I too will stick with the easy maintenance of the Excalibur designs, Simply Perfect!
Another nice option. Bowtech with no bullpup and Excal trigger. Quieter and more compact.
I agree with Dan ! Only way I'm interested in wheeled xbows is if I can change my own strings and cables and has a warranty like our Excals ! JMO !
Mission crossbow, requires no press to swap strings and cables. I know Vixenmaster Mike loves his.
I live to far from any decent archery shops to be screwing around, I like my simple Excals!
Yeah, there is no way you can get away from the need for a press with limbs that are prestressed that much, without a super long limb bolt. Too bad the Mission gives up so much length with the parallel limbs and conventional cams. No foot stirrup helps.
RAM PRODUCTS have a neat/cheap little rig that takes care of these pre-stressed limbs in short order...
BAN BONES............... ( AKA BARRIE )
Come on Joe !!! What have I done to you ? LOL Good time's !
Holy smokes, Joe! That sounded just exactly like somethin' 'ol T-Fitty would say...
Guys Barrie and I go back a ways this Member shoots a arrow out to 100 yards with ballistic accuracy Welcome Aboard
This video smokes the other one I seen on another forum. It is quiet, and requires little effort to cock. Not for me, but I see it selling well. I have about 30 friends, and coworkers that have recently gotten into crossbow hunting, and the marketing for wheeled units is strong. There are only 4 of us shooting recurve crossbows out of that group. I can see where the sales team has some focus here, and getting Excalibur known to more folks means they will explore the "Brand" offerings more as well. Could be a Win / Win for Bow Tech. My point here, not to slam wheelies is simply this, if i can get the size, and speed from recurve crossbows, and only have a single string to worry about, there is no advantage for me. On the other hand, if i can shed weight, gain speed with less effort, and enjoy the same reliability, then I have to at least look!
Here's another perspective...
I might have to put the DTM back up for sale.
