New models

Post by claytonfaulkner » Sat May 19, 2012 3:48 pm

When can we expect to see new crossbow models from excalibur? I am looking at getting a crossbow this year but excalibur seems to be a little behind what other manufactures are offering. Take the flagship equinox for example, another manufacture has 2 recurve bows that shoot faster than this, have the same life time warranty, and supposed to be just as accurate.

Just wondering if we can expect anything new this year or next, other than a new paint scheme or accessory package.

my thinking is, if it's not broke, don't fix it.
355 matrix, big johns arrows- zombieslayers, g5 montecs, strikers. Vortex big johns arrows- zombieslayers g5 montecs 125. Lumenoks.

I agree then again I'm not a speed freak, my vortex is more than enough speed than I need. Rather have confindence in where I'm going to put my arrow. These crossbows will also last many year. Still shooting my 20 year Exocet like it was new. If I can't kill what animals i hunt deer, moose, etc with what I have something is wrong.

Only advice i can give you would be to buy something other than Excalibur if you dont think they have what your looking for and by all means come back and tell us all about it when you do,As for me Excalibur is 2nd to None :)

Speed kills: bows, arrows, strings, serving, targets and, occasionally, even a deer. Been up the speed ladder and stopped at 365 fps. Found that accuracy is very sporadic arrow to arrow unless they each have the same spine, vane pattern etc. Still enjoy messin with my speed bow but the Phoenix and Vortex get most of the hunting and target shooting duty. BOTH are accurate to a fault, rugged, easy to maintain, dependable and, above all, consistently accurate. Learned the hard way not to buy a bow newly on the market. (What made me turn to Excal). Manufacturers tend to push the release and often have not worked out the bugs.
Vortex, Phoenix, single-shot rifles and handguns.

How fast do you want a recurve crossbow to shoot?

Excal is one of the few crossbow companies that I trust with my hard earned money. That means far more to me than a extra 10fps. Tried and true. Good ol Excalibur.

Ask vixenmaster how many deer hes killed with his slooooooooow vixen!! :lol:

That's quite a post for your first!

From my experience I know Excalibur does not announce a new product until it's ready to hit the market running.
Many others announce new products but you can't find them on the shelf in a store or they don't live up to the hype.

If you are in the market right now, then you will have accept what is available at this time.
The main hunting season will be upon us shortly and we all take this time to be sure we are ready.

Stick around and keep us updated.

This was meant to be a serious question, not any sort of jab at Excalibur.

Who ever sent me a private message, I can't read it for some reason.

Is that speculation or can we really expect to see a new model next year?

Just my opinion but I am happy with what they have. It is nice to see a few of the cheaper kits that were created to allow other folks that might not otherwise be able to afford a new Excalibur the opportunity to own their own piece of heaven. And to continue with new accessories coming out from time to time is nice addition to their line up.
