I suspect we will see something new from every major player in the business. It's an exciting time to be in the crossbow business!

So far all I'm getting is what has leaked out. It looks like Excalibur will have a string stopper and two new scopes. Parker has the Concorde and Hornet Extreme, new quiver and string stoppers for all thier bows, I'm fairly certain Ten Point will expand on thier compact limb models. Horton will have something new. Barnett has something new. Arrow Precision will have a new "speed bow". It looks like Winchester will have archery equipment. I'm told there will be new players in the optics lines too. That's all I've got for now and I'm sure I've missed a few. We will be at the ATA show and will have pics and video when we get back.

Darton has one now that goes 362 fps with 475 grain bolts, don't know if thats the newest one or not.

I looked through all the regs. I could find and couldn't come up with anything that would make them illegal. They didn't happen to point you to the regulation by any chance? I'm not doubting your word in any way, just want to clarify through the regulations.

Re: whats the 2011 line of crossbows looking like?

yeah, in their reply, they said the regs say it must be hand c*cked.
No, the definition of “bow” requires the crossbow to be hand drawn. ( this is copied from their reply)

Confused here. The only thing I see in the regs pertaining to hand drawn is in the definition of a "bow". The crossbow, by the PGC definition, is not a "bow". "Hand drawn" would only pertain to compound bows and traditional equipment.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
