Title: New Crossbow - Steyker Solutions LS
Post by: [Blocked] on May 22, 2016, 08:03:28 AM
After shooting my PSE TAC 15i a lot late, have decided to find a lighter and smaller bow. Don't get me wrong, the PSE TAC is an amazing crossbow and it will shoot out to 100 yards easily. Have had it for 6 years now. Wanted something I could use in small ground blinds and ladder stands.

I wanted something lighter and smaller and went to four local archery shops to see what they carried. Came home and did my research/homework and talking to my archery guru, narrow it down to the Barnett and the Styker. Wanting to keep my money locally and not going to a big box store, I ended up going with a Styker Solutions LS. It is fast but not as fast as the PSE TAC but plenty of speed. It is a standard crossbow package with 5 - 20" arrows, scope, cocking rope, etc. Purchased some Rage 2 blade broad heads, 125 gn. This is my first mechanical broad heads. For the PSE TAC, use 125 gn Muzzy fixed blades for it. Will try these Rage and see how I like them. Would like to hear from other TH members stories on the Rage. Do you like them or not? The scope on it is a Styker 3X x 32mm scope (Made by ??). Not sure if I will keep it on there. Have talked to Split Toe and Metalman about their Hawke scopes and they seemed good. One guy likes his Excalibur scope on his crossbow. But will keep this Styker 3X on it for the time being but keep my eye open for a good deal on Hawke. After getting the scope home and adjusted it to real conditions it was very clear. Not sure what each circle represents in yards, maybe I need to see if the owners manual has anything in it about the scope...daaaaa...if all else fails, read the manual!

Went ahead and order 6 new 20" arrow and 6 new 125 gn field tips and a new target also some limb and sting silencers. The old block I have has been shot up and the PSE TAC arrows go right through the block so it is time for a new one. Also two more tubes of sting wax and rail lube for the PSE and Styker. Will need to order a soft case for it, probably a newer smaller range finder. Will look in my inventory and see what other range finders I have laying around. I know of at least two others ones I have. I have a couple of bipods that I used on Safari and another three legged shooting sticks that I can take with me to help steady the either crossbow. See how that works out this summer. But since this is the first year of retirement, will definitely be down in GA hunting on opening day and may spend a few days down there just depends on how hot it gets and if it rains/storms....As Split Toe reminded me, it only 120 days till Georgia Archery season starts...it will be here before you know it!

I want to add, that I am currently doing my wife's honey do list. It is a work in progress that keeps going and going. Thought it would be easy during retirement and would like to work at the local Home Depot or Lowe's part time (Currently have HD stock and was in the IPO of HD, but had Lowe's for years, but none right now) for something nice and easy to do, but my phone keeps ringing with phone interview and job offers. Lots to think about....

sounds like a nice purchase. congrats

I think I'm hearing that you want to get a job instead of staying retired? I've known several people tell me the same thing.

you should do well w/ your HD stock. IMO, there seems to be a lot of building and home improvement activity, at least in the Midwest. you were smart to get in on the IPO. to bad all IPO's don't work out that well. that's what I do for a living, so I've seen way to many go the other way

good luck on your decision

Congrats Bo...you'll enjoy it for sure. I replaced my scope as I could never figure out the original scope. Really impressed with the Hawke 1.5 X 5 I put on mine. Happy Hunting....

I have the Stryker LS and shoot the 125 Muzzy Trocar broadheads along with the factory scope.I do have another scope I won
haven't used it yet. At 390 ft per sec that all I need and they will never jump string at that speed.

King - Thanks for your post and info. Got in another 6 Arrows/Bolts in while at Summerblast over the weekend, Now I have a gran total of 15 Arrows/Bolts. The weight of the arrows range from 300.38 grains down to 293.24 grains. Plan on shooting 125 gn Broadheads in it. The 2 blade mechanical Rage weights an average of 122.837 grains and the 3 blade Muzzy averages at 126.323 grains.

Have also number my arrows to find out which one shots the most accurate. Won and extra scope, actually two of them, and see which one would be the best one for the crossbow. Still have my eye on a Hawke and a Zeiss....

Will let everyone know how it groups and will post some pictures of the targets on TH......

This is my other crossbow, see attached pictures. It is a PSE TAC15i shoots 26.25" long arrow at 410 fps! Got this bow about 5 years ago and never taken it to the woods. Has a 3-9X x 40mm with a 30mm tube...illuminated and calibrated crosshairs. Has a HHA trajectory system on it. Trigger is 4 lbs and will see if I can get a Timney drop in trigger for this or ?? I have used only 125 gn broad heads/field tips with this bow. Have practices with it a hundred times in my backyard but never had a chance until this year to go down for extensive time - Until this year....

When I ordered it I wanted one that would fit on lower AR15 frame, but the one that came in was the one with the AR15 built in!!! This bow is long and narrow, front end heavy. This bow is narrower than my Stryker but much longer...will take some more pictures and post them with the two side by side tomorrow....

The white PVC plastic cover shown over the whisper biscuit is for the protection of the biscuit from snags, twigs, branches....I know there is a replacement for this biscuit.....

Work in progress and I think it is going well. Learning about this crossbow. Like any rifle, you have to get use to is own nuances (its personality) will take time. Once you get one down another pops up....so this has been a learning experience with me. The PSE TAC has it own as well...had to learn those too...

After mounting the scope last week, have been out shooting it everyday. Started out shooting it just three times on the first day, then 4 times the second and now shooting it 7 to 8 times times. Yesterday shot it 9 times moving the target out from 25 yards to 30 yards. Had to tweak the scope, get use to cocking the crossbow, getting use to the trigger, etc. just normal adjustments to the bow and me!!! Next week, my goal is 40 yards. Then after that will have take my stuff to the rifle range and shoot out to 50 and even 60 yards.....

Should I get a pulley style crank rope for this crossbow. They make one that fits right into the butt stock of the bow? Borkholder Archery in Milford, IN makes one for the Stryker but don't the cost.

What is amazing is all the items that you need to bring with you..man it like going to the rifle range for me! LOL...but if you think about it, when I was just getting into archery a 20 to 25 yard shot was common and 30 yards was my max distance I would shoot at a deer...of course that was with no sights on the bow and you flung an arrow "instinctively". Over the year have things changed, wow. Today a 50 and 60 yard shot is possible amazing!

Yesterday afternoon took this picture...

The day the picture (Wednesday) of the Stryker on the fieldpod was taken I was feeling OK my old self, but as the afternoon progressed my leg was acing real bad, almost could not walk. I was hobbling around like a dog!  I must have to admit that for the last few weeks have not been 100%. It has became obvious to my wife who is an RN...and she quickly came up with the diagnosis. See attached link..I have come down with piriformis-syndrome. So after dinner on 8-3-2016 It hurt so bad that I could not walk. Had this problem for a couple of weeks now and it wasn't getting any better.

The best half of this marriage got up and made the call. We went to see the PA at my doc office at 7:30 that night!! Sure enough, it turns out to be piriformis-syndrome! It fairly common and the PA herself had it a few years ago. Another guy in our hunt club wife also had it. Anyway, The PA gave me a butt shot and prescribe some a steroid pack and some muscle relaxers and since I metabolize slower than most folks (both physically and mentally) I was out yesterday morning try to shoot the Stryker crossbow and it was like the monkey and the football. The medicine was still in my system! LOL..I glad nobody was recording it would have made You Tube for sure....I only shot the crossbow 3 times yesterday and it took me 30 minutes just to shot those three !! I was still feeling the after effects of the muscle relaxer...LOL...   

Each time I get injured or sink, my wife put on her nurse's uniform (not really) but she did put on her thinking cap, believe me she is a lot smarter than this old guy is! But (excuse the pun) she has been right on the money 100% of the time on my health issues. So we know who the best half of this marriage. But now I thank my lucky stars that I have a her...

The fall is almost here and my schedule will be getting very busy. Am picking up my schedule visits to the range to twice a week! Got to get better. In about a week, we will know how this is going, either upstream or downstream! We got Archery season first in about 5 weeks, then muzzle loader, then rifle season starts..between now and then will be practicing in the back yard and heading to the range a lot...

Dave - thanks for your well wishes...I am much better now after a visit to the PA and get some good advice, and a shot in the old rear end!!! LOL...will be out shooting the crossbow shortly and a new style level came in the male today and will be mounting it on the Styrker bow on the picatinny rail. Mounted it last night before have a date night with my lovely, beautiful and very smart wife. It was too close and could not see the level clearly, will try again to mount it farther out so my old eyeballs can focus on it before heading out to shoot it at 30 maybe 40 yards!!....LOL...

Yea you are right, when you get older things do happen....LOL...

sounds like a nice bow....I have been using the rage broadheads and the definately make a nasty cut.If I had any complaint it would be sometimes the little rings that keep them closed come off and they open up while sitting in the stand so you need to check them after loading up.I am still on the fence with mechanicals.
I have the rope cocking aid and a crank for my excaliber.Because of elbow issues I mostly use the crank and they are very easy to use but not cheap.
Title: Re: New Crossbow - Steyker Solutions LS
Post by: [Blocked] on August 09, 2016, 05:11:06 AM
Gander - Thanks for your post. The crank makes it a whole lot nicer. My other crossbow is a PSE TAC 15i series and it has a built in crank, I love that. I was thinking about getting a crank for my Styker. I still think it is in the prototype stages of development. It just may be like yours on the Excaliber?? There is a archery shop in Indiana that offers them. I have not seen one from Styker just yet, but you know behind close doors they are working on one, or even have one that will put on the market soon as a option....

I have two cocking ropes and have marked them using yellow tape for clarity last night. Just some short think yellow duct tape and marked the center of the rope (maybe a arrow knock on the rope would be better?) and marked which way the handles face. This is for me to help visualize which way and where the rope goes. I will try it today and see what changes I have to make, but anything is better than now..all black rope with no markings or orientation marks....

Attached are two pictures. This was yesterday around 1 PM, boy was it hot and humid....one was taken at 30 yards, and one at 40 yards. When I first started shooting the Styker after putting on the new Hawke scope, I would walk down to the target after each arrow, just to see if I needed to make any adjustments, which I did as usual. Yesterday, I decided to shoot 12 arrows, 4 groups of 3 arrows. This was my first time shooting 3 arrows/bolts on a target before walking down to see where the arrows would hit onto the target. The one at 30 yards is OK, but the one at 40 yards needs tweaking a bit. Down and over...Also last night reduce the speed of the bow on the Hawke Scope Ring down to 385. The will help the image size and reduce the distance in the scope aim points and will move the scope down two clicks down and two clicks left and go from there...but the groups are amazing, even I was impressed.

But is coming in slowly. After getting the Styker all zero in, will pull out the older PSE TAC15i and get re-acquainted with it. Purchased it back in 2011 but it has never been to the woods with me, only shooting it in the back yard. This is my fault!!! I will correct this problem....

Mossy - I am still looking at the Zeiss or Leupold Crossbow scope, but are 2-7X x 33mm scopes for the PSE TAC 15i.....But I was looking at both the Excalibur and the Hawke scopes for the Styker. They are probably made at the same factory and just put different labels on them!! LOL...

I think a simple scope like the Zeiss XB75 would be good for the PSE crossbow....

Last Tune Up before heading South. Will take the Styker and test it at 30 through 60 yards and maybe beyond ??? this Friday. Wife has to baby sit so I will head to the range (the Archery range is right next to the rifle range). Will take my target and set up at different distances and do one final check....

Did not go to the range, instead went over to a friend house and shot there. If you live in East Tennessee, there are hills everywhere!!! So I shot two arrows at 40 yards, slightly high; one shot at 50 yards and one shot at 60 yards...because of the arrow being high at 40 yards put the pin at the top of the bulls eye and it dropped in and at 60 yards place the target (his) bulls eye between (guesstimated) the 50 and 60 yard markers and it drop right on....

At 40 yards the angle was right at 30 degrees down hill and at 50 it was about 27.5 degree and at 60 yards it was about 25 Degree downhill....JD the guys house I went over to wanted to shoot it as well, so he did and really liked it a lot...he shot his compound and it has been over 10 years since he had shot his compound and he just turned 65 and was thinking about getting back into hunting and archery and wanted to shoot my Styker...he was impressed with it....He like myself, set a limited of 35 to 40 yards with the compound and with a good decent crossbow you can shoot out to 80 yards. That is my limit since I don't have a 100 yard pin...LOL...see targets

Now that GA Archery and Muzzle Loader Season is behind us and the Rifle season is here. Want to look back and give everyone my thoughts and ask questions. This was the first year that I combined Archery with Muzzle Loader and first year I took a Crossbow into the woods...I sort of thought of it as a Muzzle loader....I waited to I got to/into the stand/blind before cocking it and then waiting to get back to camp and changing arrow to a field tip and discharging the Crossbow into a target. Does anyone else do this?? Several of the guys did this and one guy left his cocked the whole time down there.
 %^$^

Would like to hear from others on this. Please pass along any ideas.....This is my first year with a Crossbow in the woods, and it has been about 3 years or so since I was able to make it into the woods for Archery season. Normally I will pull out my old trusty compound (PSE) and hunt with it. The main reason is my TKR (Total Knee Replacement) and being on the road for work! But from now on, will make this an annual trip down, love this time of the year...besides my BDay is in Oct...LOL...

Finally had the time to get out and shoot the Styker Solutions LS crossbow. The two attached pictures are from today and they are the first three arrows shot in 2017!! Shot them at 30 yards. Shot a second and third groups with one click to the left and one click up and got my breathing under control. There was with no support, I was standing and my elbow in the old big gut. Tomorrow, I will get a folding chair out from the garage and and try again. Groups should be better. Try to simulate the blind conditions as much as possible....I am using a 125 gn field tip for all the shots, same as last year....It's a start....

Temp is 66 F and the Humidity is 71% and there is not wind.....

This year with the new left knee, not sure about a lot of things but will be out there trying my best to nail a big buck or even a doe, if we see a ton of does.....

More pictures tomorrow.....

That's plenty good to put some venison in the freezer Bo!   You're a brave man shooting three bolts at the same mark, do that for long and you'll need to buy new bolts.  I'm sure amazed with the accuracy of mine too.  Have fiddled with the scope just a little since I mounted it, but probably far less than 2" of adjustment at 30 yards.  I'm amazed at how much different it seems between 30 and 40 yards on flight time.  Out to 30 it seems like the bolt is on the target as soon as the trigger breaks, but at 40 you have time to watch the flight.  For now, I'll be limiting my shots to 30 with it until I get some confidence in the performance on a live target.  Not difficult to live within that limit, as my local bowhunting area is so thick 30 will be tough to reach.

Post by: [Blocked] on September 14, 2017, 11:32:56 PM
Thanks guys for the comments....Before heading out to the range, after the rain stopped, set up the target again at 30 yard and tried again....you are right Split Toe, some tweaking is all that I need...will keep trying almost daily. Did 6 shots today, first three arrows today are shown....

Will move out to 40 yards within the next couple of days, hopefully it won't rain for the next few days.....

Mad - I would go out to 40 yards, there sure are a lot of deer between 30 and 40 yards...heck last year I had confidence out to 70 yards and even today will not hesitate to shoot a deer at 50 yards. I have 5 other bows, 3 compounds are in there somewhere....but last year 2016 started getting serious about getting back into archery season simple because I retired last year. Now I have a PSE TAC 15i and it is too long and heavy to hunt with, so I started looking at finding another crossbow. I went to my local archery shop, about a block away from the AR shop and talk to the guy. It took me a week and lots of viewing time on You Tube to make a decision on the Styker Solutions LS....did not consult with Split Toe, but he too has a Styker Crossbow, I think his is the Katrina that goes 380 FPS...man that's fast....So that is the story behind my main crossbow.....

I think you will gain the confidence you will need just by practicing a bit more....as far as the number of 20 inch long arrows/bolts that I have, the count currently stands at 14. Last year #12 had an accident, so the official count stays at 13, will add a half dozen or so this year......

Forgot to mention that everyone that shoots a crossbow needs a Rangefinder! Any rangefinder will work....the cheapies will work just fine....that is why I bought a Bushnell Bone Collector that goes out to 600 yards. Think I need it only about 75 yards.

After getting the Styker, it did not take me long to decided I needed a extra rangefinder dedicated to the crossbow...I have many other rangefinders and the Leica is the best one I have. It has the best glass on the market at the time I bought it. Like most hunters, you want make sure that the rangefinder takes common batteries to operate...I try to settle in on AA or AAA and for the scopes use the CR2032 battery...the Lecia Rangefinder takes a special battery and it will take up to 1000 readings before you need to replace it....some of the rangefinders that I have in the pile take 9 Volt, the early ones did....

Just some thoughts......

I have only ever completely missed two deer in my life and both of these were hunting an open field on days where I forgot my range finder.    I have always been pretty good at judging distances but when you hunt in an area where there are no definitive landmarks, a rangefinder is invaluable. Even if you have trees, etc, to use a reference points a range finder will provide accurate yardages to those landmarks.

2018 Season is about to start and have been shooting 6 arrows/bolt in my crossbow every other day for about 2 weeks now....was deadly from the first shot this year.....had to make minor adjustment to the Hawke scope....very minor, like 1 click down and 1 click to left....Am out to 40 yards with the crossbow, deadly accurate....

Also have been shooting my Compound bow with about 2 inch groups at 20 yards, 4 inch groups at 30 yards....it sure looks like I am more comfortable with the crossbow!!

Would like to hear from other crossbow hunters....how are yawl doing?? %^$^

Haven't had to move my Xbow scope for the last couple of years.  Dead on at 25 yds, have to shoot at different bulls to avoid destroying bolts.  Will start trying longer ranges even though I never get long shots where I bowhunt.  I think the longer ranges will help reveal any issues I'm having with the hold, trigger, etc.

I had to send my Concorde CB back to Parker last week. So, I took my Parker Buckbuster out and shot it in from my tree stand. Had to adjust the reticle on the scope and three shots all in a 1 circle of the target spot I aimed at.

I need to shot the Styker Crossbow for the 2019 season, hopefully it is still on like it was in 2018, out to 70 yards!!! Wow, it was great shape back in 2018.....now get the smoke pole out and make sure it is own for the 2019 season....

What I will do this year like I have done for the past three seasons, is to head to GA for the last three or four days of Archery and the first three or four days of Muzzle loader then head back to TN and refresh before heading down to GA for our two week annual hunt.....

I will start shooting the crossbow and the compound bow (PSE Mach Flite Four - I know it is old and out of date but I like to still shoot a few arrow through it....for old time sake) probably in about 2 weeks in early August...hopefully only need a few shots at different distances, can go out to 50 yds. in the backyard. So will shoot three arrows at 25 yards then three at 35 and then three at 40 then three at 50 and we will go from there.....

Have been shooting the Styker in the back yard a bunch lately. I will shoot the crossbow afterward the wife does her morning watering of her plants!! LOL....the groups are getting smaller. It seems like with the crossbow as well as the rifle, have to get back use to two things, trigger and breathing controls......I have to be aware of both of those things regardless of what I am shooting.....

Yeah Bo, I have to really think about it too with my crossbow.  The trigger is pretty crisp but it has a really high pull weight.  The longer the shot the more it matters of course.

Post by: [Blocked] on September 22, 2019, 07:01:05 PM
That's why we practice (or should) practice before the season to get used to thinking about what we are doing. Breathing, etc. We get so used to doing all of that during the season but don't realize that sometimes we forget. Not intentionally but just because we haven't gone through the checklist in nearly a year. Good practice makes good, accurate and ethical shooting.
