what's the difference between crossbows?

Postby chack182 » Mon Jan 17, 2011 10:21 pm

Posted this on another site but did not get any feedback on the subject.
Can someone tell me what is the difference between the axiom and the phoenix. Also is the stock the only thing difference between the phoenix and the ibex? I will be getting a crossbow soon for deer hunting and I not sure which one to get.
I did read the excaibur pamphlet and the only thing I can see is mass weight Ibex 6.2 lbs. overall lenght 36.4", Phoenix 6.3 lbs., overall lenght 37.5" and Axiom 6.0 lbs. and overall lenght 37.5" everything else is the same. But the price is very difference so they have to have something? Thanks for any info.

The Axiom is basically just a Phoenix minus the dissipator bars/pads. Also comes as a package only but with a different scope than the Varizone. Mechanically it is a Phoenix that is packaged in such a way that the cost is kept down. Nothing at all is inferior in quality or function. The Ibex and the Phoenix are the exact same except for the stock style. The Ibex is thumbhole. The Phoenix is traditional. It all just comes down to personal choice in stock styles with these two. Which ever model you choose you will have the best crossbow out there. All the Excaliburs are excellent up and down the line. Can't go wrong! Good luck.

Thanks for the info. I think it may be the Ibex, I like the stock but I will try to find a place close to home that sells them so I can shot each.

The Axiom comes in 2 models now one with a composite rail. The only other diff between the T-hole & regular stock is the trigger on T-hole has abit more angle to it cause of the stock
