Re: Excalibur vortex

One of my three crossbows. Has been bulletproof for me as they are for most everyone. Light up front and easy to maintain. Great warranty and customer service.

They are louder than compound styles and slower but I don't see that as a handicap. Can be a bit cumbersome in a ground blind or small treestand.

I see no reason to shy you away form one if you it feels good to you. They are great bows and I have killed several deer with mine.

Good luck.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Excalibur vortex

Any Excalibur is good.There is an Excocet 200lb and axiom 175lb in this house.Both work quite well.The limbs as I've been told are all the same,just a different power stroke.The longer he power stroke the higher the draw weight.Call Arrowhead he will tell you anything you need to know about crossbows.

Re: Excalibur vortex

We have some great deals on Vortex packages in the works. Give me a call and I'll be happy to talk crossbow with you.
All my information is in the link in my signature.

My personal favorites are the 175 lb. models. I probably shoot more than any normal person should and they are much easier to cock after the 100th shot. If I were going to use them exclusive to hunting, then I would really have to think about the models with 200 lb. limbs. You will love the Excalibur. They are easy to maintain and extremely reliable. If anything ever does go wrong, Excalibur will take care of it, no questions asked.
