string crank.

would have put c--king device but wasn't sure. Any how seems that when I use it I don't shoot the same as when I hand lock it wow am I missing something it is locking up in the same spot? Also it really puts pressure on the servings. I am at a loss looking for help. It does group well just will shoot different on the bull.

Re: string crank.

If I'm reading this right-and I HOPE I am, are you saying that when you cok your xbow BY HAND, it isn't consistently accurate? If so, welcome to the world of trying to cok your xbow by hand and expecting it to be accurate. A crank or string coking device will ALWAYS give you a more consistent and more accurate shot over doing it by hand. Hope this helps.

Re: string crank.

If you cock a crossbow by hand and not using a crank or rope cocker and you are off my even a slight hair of a bit of center on that string, it will be very off on the target. The owner of Excalibur did a study and video on that. I highly recommend at least a rope cocker. It`s good for your shooting and the game we hunt
