New Member and Excalibur owner

Post by gmont510 » Wed Aug 12, 2015 3:35 pm

Well at 51 years old I finally decided to get into archery and to the dismay of some friends chose the crossbow route. Initially was going to go the route of something on the low end(Barnett) but thankfully decided to do some research and found Excalibur was the way to go. Still needed to keep my price point down so the entry level Axiom is the way I went. After sighting it in I found it to be a little louder than I expected. Would adding the bar dissipaters and the S5 bumpers give me a significant noise reduction? Also heard changing the string to higher quality may help, any suggestions out there? Thanks!

welcome to the forum :!: you will never regret going with Excalibur. as far as noise goes, none of the deer I have shot have cared about the noise :lol: seriously though I am certain that more knowledgeable members will help you out with ideas to tame'er down a bit. one thing you will find with this forum is members do everything they can and then more to help others out :!:

Thanks Jeff, I have to agree they probably don't worry so much about the noise as they do about that stabbing pain :lol:.

you would probably get more responses if the thread was in the "crossbow hunting" room
