Aftermarket Cocking Device Suggestions
My daughter uses a Parker Challenger crossbow, and has taken a few deer with it. It's perfect for her, as it is short and light (just like her), and pink camo! Anyway, she cannot cock the crossbow herself as she's not strong enough. Try as she might, she just can't cock it and has a cocking device with the small wheels on it but still can't do it. I've looked at other crossbows that have cocking mechanisms, but they are usually VERY heavy.
Does anyone have any suggestions on aftermarket cocking devices, cranks, etc.? I thought about the Parker crossbow which has a CO2 cocking device, but haven't seen one and don't want to purchase one sight unseen.
