My buddy wants me to help him shop a crossbow with a crank style mechanism for his 80 year old father. I’m an archery hunter but never even held a crossbow. He’s not looking to go real expensive, but any recommendations would be appreciated.
I would look at the Wicked Ridge Invader X4 with the Acudraw mechanical crank. A solid American company with great customer service. Its a moderately priced crossbow around $600 all set and ready to go.
Iím looking at a Wicked Ridge Warrior for my daughter. Nice and light and compact and reasonable price to get going. I wasnít going to add a crank for her, but if she wants want itís easy to add one to their bows.
