I own a Excal Vortex and have shot most of the other Excals as well. The Axiom will be easy to cock, bulletproof and require little maintenance.

As with all recurves, they are wider and louder than compound styles. The Axiom is on the low end of the speed spectrum for crossbows as well.

Overall a very nice bow that is just about perfect for whitetails.

In my mind it's one of the best crossbows Excalibur makes. Light, good trigger and enough power for reasonable distances. It's also easy to cock, fun to shoot and dead solid reliable. Only downside I see is it's a bit wide. Add the string stoppers, they are worth it to me.

I'm going to assume that they are the ones with a tapered seat?? The riser fits to the top of the barrel in the notch and they go against the bottom of the barrel and the screws go through them into the barrel and thread into the riser.

no not those ones...these are plastic about 1" dia. they have a 5/16 hole and are around .060 thick...almost like a shim...I thought maybe there for if the limbs sat too low below the rail that they can be used to shim it up alittle?

I got the same setup and also had the two plastic washers. I put them under the metal coutersunk one.

Arrowhead I am new to the crossbow so what did you mean the string stops? Is this something you sell?

Yes. The S5 string stoppers for the Excalibur really help to take out noise and vibration. (at least to me they do) They bolt to the riser of the bow and were designed by Excalibur.

Been thinking about this one. Trado is correct the Axiom does use thin plastic washers between barrel and countersunk washer. (it's been one of those days for a while now...LOL)

Make sure the nock you deflected off of won't cut your string. Sometimes they will get a sharp burr on them and it will tear things up.
