I’m sure it would be necessary for anything over 200lb pull! If I ever decide to buy a power eater like that then it would be a must, but until then my rope cocker works just fine. 😉

It looks like it can be cranked from either the left or the right side or am I seeing things on the video .

Yes either side. It's a nice crank easy to use and much safer then the old ones. Awesome upgrade.
It will work on any Micro.
Matrix if it had the cutout and two top holes like the micro.

I like the retractable rope feature that it seems to have but one thing I would like to know is will it bust your knuckles if you let go while cocking or is there an auto brake feature?

I believe he said it comes with a retro fit if your stock doesn’t have the 2 holes? I thought he mentioned it.

It appears Excalibur has delivered with this Crank!! Glad they responded to all the requests for a new Crank.

No it brakes as soon as you stop cranking. knuckles are safe. It has a wrist strap so you can uncock safely and it won't run away on you.

That’s good, i’ll probably get on the list if we get good reports from this weekend. David at Wyvern’s said it may be 1-2 months before he has them in stock.

Thanks for the info

It showed in the video decocking with the crank but in the photos it states on the mounting hardware . Warning DO NOT DECOCK WITH CRANK ! What gives >

It looks to me like you can simply measure and drill the holes in your stock. Why should it matter that it is not cut out like the micro stocks as long as the holes are there?
