Triggers

I'm looking to get a crossbow this spring. I want a recurve, a good one. How do the triggers compare to an average rifle? There's no shops near me that I can try one, at least none that I know of.

Thanks,
Bill

Re: Triggers

Excalibur recurves have very good triggers. They are not as good as a rifle trigger, but they are among the best crossbow triggers. BTW it is a great idea to wait until spring. There will be something new in recurves coming in 2013.

Re: Triggers

My opinion is most crossbow triggers stink if the standard is your typical centerfire rifle.

The best crossbow trigger out there now are Bowtech Strykzones and Winchester crossbows. Kodabow is close as well.

Since you mentioned that you want a recurve with a good trigger, I would look at the Kodabow. Made right here in Pa and a quality bow.

Re: Triggers

My Excal Exocet 200 is about 7-8 years old and the trigger is superb. I don`t know if they are still as good, but mine is pretty much perfect to me.
