Excalibur is a top end crossbow...there is no doubt about it. There is also a guy in Canada doing some amazing things with a stock, out of the box, Parker Spartan.

In the end it's the service you get from your dealer and the manufacturer that matters the most. Ten Point, Excalibur and Parker all have excellent customer service.

Excalibur is more for the user that wants a recurve crossbow.Like myself and my son.There is something for everyone out there.Buying something quality is the main thing.If it's cheap there is a reason why.

Picked up a vortex on Friday and shot it over the weekend. The scope is properly mounted, using the cranking device to ensure every draw is the same, shooting from a bench and rock solid rest. All that being said, we are yet to drive two arrows on top/touching each other past 20 yds. At 40yds, the group spreads out to about 6 inches and at 50, 1 will be 5 inches left, another 5 inches right. This coming from aiming at a 2 inch blaze orange circle, dead steady. I'm baffled, I just don't see the amazing accuracy I was expecting. I'm capable of far better groups with my compound. Any suggestions?

Check all screws/bolts etc where things are put together. Had a similar instance after several shots and found some loose ones - bow to stock connection and trigger mechanism are often troublesome. Tightened them down with some loctite and now cannot shoot at the same target twice without them touching.
