Excaliber Axiom???

Is the axiom any good? I wanna get my dad on but I'm a little nervous. Feels a little cheap and alot of plastic.

Re: Excaliber Axiom???

My son has one with an aluminum rail.Perfect operation.I know they changed it to make it lighter hence the plastic.I have a Glock 21 and a good bit of it is plastic.I was apprehensive about buying the Glock but my fear has subsided.I would trust that plastic gun for any defense situation that I intended to live through.The plastics/polymers they use today are not for yellow Tonka trucks.Some are almost as strong as steel,lighter and self lubricating.In a nutshell the "plastic" wouldn't scare me away.If it would fail by chance,I would bet Excalibur would cover the repair.Arrowhead may know more than me about that though.Lol.Reasonable care it should last a lifetime.

I went back and forth between the Axiom and Phoenix and got the Phoenix because the dissipator bar not the rail.There nothing cheap,about the Axiom, it just a way to cut cost and a little weight.

I wouldn't worry about the composite rail. Lots of companies have been using them for years, it just took Excalibur a little longer to use them. Excalibur is expanding the line of compostite with the 2012 Ibex now being composite. Very good crossbows and lighter weight to boot. If there is a problem you can count on Excalibur to take care of it in a super fast, no questions asked way.

If this bow has caught your eye, no reason to hesitate. Great bow from a great company. It is not the fastest or the quietest but when shooting within accepted archery distances, doesn't much matter.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
