My first crossbow!

Post by vjs » Sat Feb 04, 2017 11:38 am

I just picked up an Excalibur Axiom yesterday! Since it was on clearance, I got a great price on it. I am looking forward to practicing with it prior to next years archery season. I chose Excalibur due to their reputation for building quality products.

Some have suggested that the Axiom might be one of the best, most user friendly and most dependable crossbows that Excalibur has ever made. And, I am not one to disagree with that suggestion.

Your crossbow is a crossbow that you will use the rest of your life and one that the next generation will use for the rest of their life.
