Re: WTB: vortex

Good luck with that! Vortex was one of the best bows they made that's why they hold their value.

Re: For those who pray

Didn't Mike just have heart bypass surgery too? Definitely a stretch of bad luck.

Re: Charger Crank

Excalibur replaced the whole Charger Crank EXT with a brand new in the box crank. Never ever had a complaint about customer service with Excalibur! I'm definitely gun-shy now using this crank! I will NOT use it without the fail-safe strap in either direction! 👍

Re: Micro 335 and ADF

I won't use my Micro without it! I don't trust myself anymore! Lol it shouldn't be that far off in sighting just by changing the mount. It's worth it to me. Good luck!

Re: Micro 335 and ADF

I did a partial dry fire on my bow once and the ADF on the Guardian Mount broke from the force of the partial dry fire. The whole mount needed to be replaced. It did however save the limbs from splitting or breaking! Good luck!

Re: Charger Crank

Dan in the process of cranking the Charger, something snapped and jerked the handle out of my hand and spun a few times before it came to a stop. The crank is useless now, it doesn't do anything when cranked in either direction. As per directions, I've only used the wrist strap while decocking the b...

Re: Charger Crank

I was in the process of cranking the crank. The recoil spring didn't break. I think the internal gear broke? Sounded like something snapped and the handle went flying. The crank doesn't do anything anymore. Doesn't matter which way it is turned. Something internal definitely is broken.

Re: Charger Crank

Just an FYI, the instructions only recommend using the fail-safe strap while de-cocking the crossbow! It broke while I was cocking and when it broke without warning, the handle flew around so fast that there was nothing I could do but get my hand out of the way. I will NEVER trust it again under any...

Re: Charger Crank

Just to be clear! I was cranking the Charger crank to adjust the brace height when something snapped and the crank starting flying backwards on it's own! I crank the crank till the rope is clearly behind the antidryfire and is locked in the trigger fork! It never got that far!

Re: Charger Crank

Yes it was set to crank. I was trying to adjust my brace height. Sounded like Something cracked and the handle went spinning cracking my fingers and my belly. It hurt like a dickens!

Charger Crank

I'm not having good luck with my Excalibur equipment lately! Last night I was adjusting the brace height on my Nightmare and the spring let go on my crank. Left a heck of a bruise on my belly!

Now I had to ship it back to Excalibur today to get it fixed.
