Danny is working on it. I'm guessing some stock grinding will be necessary along two holes for the mount.

Donno if it's been mentioned but once the handle as been pulled out, the winder easily fits into a jacket pocket.

I would need backup in that case :oops:
Would not be the first time I have loss things in my pockets while stalking or moving through the bush which at
times can be in some pretty nasty ### Sh!tholes ### :shock: :lol:

When in use I just leave my C2 Crank on the stock I find it to be a lot less hassle.

Maybe for Christmas someone can buy you a jacket with a zippered pocket or pocket that has a velcroed flap. Of course you could use the string on your mittens to attach to your winder :mrgreen:

VELCROED FLAP!

Don't get me started.
My number one pet peeves is velcro on hunting clothing.
Pay extra for camo gear only to have the closures made of one of the noisest things ever made by mankind.
Clearly clothing designed by a non hunter that does not understand the concept of why hunters wear camo in the first place.
Either that or an anti- hunting conspiracy :roll: :shock: :lol:

Boo NOTE!

You are showing your age :mrgreen: :oops: you need to keep up and get on board with the advancements in technology .
When you were a "wee wee......" little boy a long long long time ago it was a string used on your mittens.
Today in these modern times of rapid technological advancements it is now referred to as a

"Lanyard"

How many, how soon? Donno but they were on display in retail packaging so I am guessing it will be available sooner than Christmas.

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 >
The video was not an official Excalibur video. However, these cranks have the "do not crank" warning on them but Excalibur has changed their minds and will not have that printed and will say that you can decock (not printed on the bow).

I emailed Barry at Woody's about retro fitting it to the matrix . He responded that he will be working on a refit for the matrix bows . So I'm sure it does not involve just drilling holes in the stock.
