New crossbow ratings from Outdoor Life
« on: July 26, 2012, 09:35:24 PM »
From my recent Outdoor Life email is this link where they rate some of the new huntingh crossbows. I found the drop at 40 yards very intersting myself

http://www.outdoorlife.com/photos/gallery/hunting/2012/07/crossbow-bow-new-bows-bow-test-hunting-bows-2012?cmpid=enews072612&spPodID=020&spMailingID=4666188&spUserID=MTA0OTkyOTcwOTYS1&spJobID=279617193&spReportId=Mjc5NjE3MTkzS0

Read and enjoy and see if you agree with the ratings if you use a crossbow currently

And some of the anti-crossbow folks still claim the new crossbows are 150 yrad weapons, maybe inside on a known distance range and know wind. 

And yes, there was a post to that effect on another site

Interesting how technology advances onwards.  For me however, I like it simple.  Less to go wrong.  My Excalibur Equinox does the job every time on the occasion that it is needed.  Nothing to go wrong except a string breaking.  And you can change it in about a minute and be back hunting. 

The new whiz bang designs sure are interesting to look at though!
