Re: Excaliber grizzly
OK. I can understand your pain. There are so many great choices out there right now. Let's consider how you would prefer to hunt. If you like tight closed in stands and ground blinds you will probably want to opt for the Grizzly. If wider limbs fit your chosen stand or blind, then the Axiom would be just fine.
Also, consider your physical abilities. Would cocking a 175 lb. Axiom crossbow be a better choice than the 200 lbs. of the Grizzly not be a problem? Keep in mind you will have to use a rope cocker and that cuts the poundage in half. The Grizzly has a shorter power stroke, so it will be easier in a way to get cocked. You have to pull harder, but not as far.
Either choice will be fine, as you are buying an Excalibur. You will likely never need limbs or other parts. That is one of the reasons you buy an Excalibur. Parts will always be available for both models and I doubt you will ever need any.
In the end I would choose the one that fits your style of hunting the best. Axiom is 36 inches wide the Grizzly is 30.
