There are plenty of positive reviews since being introduced almost two years ago.

I believe the Dr Stirrup kit upgrades any Excalibur except likely less so on the Suppressor.

I think very highly of the kit I received, The bumpers, dampeners, and 4x4 cocking aid work great. I did however remove the stirrup for bowhunting with snow on the ground as I didn't feel very safe trying to use the stirrup while wearing winter boots.

I have a Dr. Stirrup on Colton's Micro. It is great. It is well made and does what it says. My only gripe, if you can call it that, is if you break down your bow into the two sub assemblies( riser, limbs, string, and rail, stock, trigger) to transport in a smaller case, Dr. Stirrup is bigger and may not still fit in your case. A small inconvenience .

The biggest benefit of the stirrup is that it allows people to cock a heavier draw bow then they could with the stock stirrup. It makes it feel like the next bow down. There is no way I could cock Paul's Mega without that stirrup. Both feet on the bow even with big boots on is not a problem.

Rope cocker is all I use now. I like the double pulleys, it ensures you cock it even and shortens up the pull with the handle design.

the string stops far exceed the OEM style. They are basically an air bag And indestructible. Most people will never wear them out.

Have the complete set on my 350SE and they work great. Gaston is great to work with and talk to, he does have a "accent" :shock: but don't hold that against him. :lol:

i only have an opinion on the stirrup and it was much to bulky/large after installing it for my liking so went back to original stirrup and much better for me

The DB Killers work better than any other string stop to lower noise. The stirrup kills noise as well. The broadhead protector is incorporated in the stirrup and really does work. You can go through brush without fear of having the broadhead and arrow become dislodged. The stirrup also allows you to stand your crossbow up on it's nose which is great when you are walking and calling like you do moose hunting. Probably the best aspect of the stirrup is that you use both feet on either side, negating any possibility of shoving a broadhead, or a field point for that matter, through your foot. Before you think to yourself "it ain't gonna happen", be informed that many have done just that! :shock:
The rope cocker allows all 4 fingers to fully hold the handles where most only allow 2 fingers. Also, it sits straight up giving you better/closer access to the handles.
Anyone interested in knowing more should look at Gaston's Utube videos.

If you think there's a great conspiracy, there isn't other than the one running in circles in your head
