Let's stir the pot a little bit. What does everyone think about reverse draw crossbows for a hunting rig? Positives and negatives.
That is a common misconception. I have not seen any instances of this occurring. If they exist, it is no higher than folks getting hit by broken strings or other parts on conventional crossbows.Dave2pa said:I was told if the limbs break the pieces COULD come back at you ??
Let's talk power stroke. The reverse draw design allows for a longer power stroke without increasing the overall length of the bow. Longer power stokes allow for more speed with less limb weight.Jason Zimmerman said:First efficient due to long power stroke.
Quiet is relative. All crossbows are loud.Jason Zimmerman said:Ok. Quiet. Yes some reverse draw crossbows are a little quieter. All reverse draw crossbows are not quiet. Went back in the indoor range at the local pro show to shoot a scorpyd Orion with 150 limbs and when I pulled the trigger the two guys working the counter came back looking around. They said is that you making all that noise,I thought they(reverse draw crossbows) were supposed to be quiet.
