Re: CROSSBOW COCKING FEATURES

Most crossbows have some sort of cranking device available.I don't know the force needed but it is stated it is quite easy.I use a rope cocker.Those cut the draw weight in half.Works great for my Exocet 200.

Yes it only takes 6 lbs to crank a 185 lb bow,other crossbow company make some cranks but I do not know the pounds it takes to crank it.

Re: CROSSBOW COCKING FEATURES

Most of the cranking devices are only a few pounds pressure to crank. The rope cocker cuts the force in half. Almost all of the manufacturers have a cranking device available. Ten Point has one of the most user friendly and it will fit a few other bows as well.
Some crossbows, like the PSE Tac-15 must use a cranking device.

Re: CROSSBOW COCKING FEATURES

Yesterday, while cocking the bow, part of the plastic claw snapped off, rapidly loosing the bow string. Luckily, it was only at about 1/3 draw. Got a hold of TenPoint and, while they are sending me a new part, implied it was my fault. Maybe, maybe not.

Re: CROSSBOW COCKING FEATURES

For years any mechanical advantage cocking device on a x-bow was illegal in PA.
Might check with a WCO before using.

Re: CROSSBOW COCKING FEATURES

I kinda doubt they're illegal anymore. I bet half the bows in PA have an Acudraw or something similar. And frankly, while Acudraws are easier, using a rope device is much faster.
