My quads do more than half the work of cocking my 'Max! I call it the squat-cock! :D I can cock my crossbow with a completely relaxed neck.

Welcome to the forum Riflemanz. Where are you from?

I have the same problem with my neck. I have the Exomag. Sometimes I can cock it using the rope cocker and sometimes I have to use the crankaroo. I suggest getting the crank along with the rope cocker. As to which bow, that can be a very personal choice.

Good luck.
Keep smiling!

Only diff between them the II has shorter stock & is camo instead of Brn. $360 fer an older Brn is abit high. Ck with Bowhunters Super store they had some Brn ones left maybe abit lower in price. I am not a pkg fan. I pick & choose what i want to use with mine.
nationalarcherysupply has a sale on fer $333.95

Danny Miller of Horizontal Archery, 740-483-2312 is the USA Warrenty Contact for Excalibur, out of Sardis Ohio. He may be the nicest, fairist person, you will ever meet or talk too. Give him a call and ask him for his opinion? :lol: Then sit down and listen.
