You hope it locks at full draw! It may be a $1,599 dollar finger amputating machine, just like the Ravin.lol
Buddy of mine sent me a photo of a friend of his that lost his thumb with a Ravin loading it. He knew I had 1

I hurt my hand pretty badly with my Ravin decocking it. Didn't lose any fingers, thank goodness.

Lots of nice features. It won't be cheap but I bet it's going to be a good offering.

After the ATA I'll decide if I NEED it or not... lol

I'm a bit put off by the price on it. Unfortunately if I wanted one it's out of my price range for 2018 purchases. It would take a heck of alot of self justification to order one.. ;)

Looking @ my soon to be 2 crossbows (after I assemble the Micro 355 B\D) I have what I want and want what I have.. ;)

I’m with Dan on this one. I do enough damage to myself without adding a finger guillotine to the mix. But I’m sure they will fit right into a lot of people’s wheel house.

I am kind of put off buy the name of the bow to tell you the truth with hunting being under constant attack buy anti hunters "Assassin "does not put forth a good image for me and I eat two deer a year every year for the last 30 years.
Just my 2 cents worth I liked the original Excalibur bow names like Vixen, Phoenix, Equinox, Exocet,Exomax Ect ,Hunting is something that is very important to me, and the participation in nature that is so precious to me and that I enjoy so much seams cheapened by the name "Assassin".

Funny, I didnt realize I felt that way until you put it that way. There was something that was keeping me from looking into it, and I couldn't put my finger on it. But thats it, the name does not sit right with traditional minded hunters.

Same thoughts myself.
Especially with all the senseless shootings in the NEWS
Just can't contemplate the degree of fallout that would happen if just one of these were ever used for such a senseless act.

Sorry, Id like to see a convenient portable crank cocker, on and off without tools, I was hoping for it to be a snap to change from Micro to Suppressor to Bulldog, but this don't look like an answer to any of my dreams, quite the opposite.

I'd go back to the Suppressor which I did like, just wanted a tad more oomph,, and like others, I like to KEEP IT SIMPLE,, that's what recurve used to be all about! Looks like the Mad Max and Lynx won't be threatened,,, old news!
