Excalibur taking a beating.

Post by LongCarbine » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:42 pm

Boy , Excalibur is sure taking a beating on another site . It seams every bow that is sold has a broken limb or a limb is breaking or just falling off ! No kidding. At least 3 post today with 50-80 comments. My three seem just fine . I must live right or something :lol:

Please do tell. Where are all these complaints? I would love to read them.
These next statements are for the original poster but just my observations.
I’ve read allot of complaints in the last 6 months (because that’s as long as I’ve had an Excalibur) some legitimate which were professionally resolved. Lots of the complaints I’ve read seem like BS and or TROLLING.
Thanks
Wayne

I think it is on the big blue "f" social media site in the Excalibur Crossbow Owners group. It seems like every owner on there today had limbs go boom. Micros, Matrix 380s, Assassins, the whole product line.

This why I'm not on Facebook. It's full of phonies and posers. ;)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

More pics of deer on the ground than bows and a guy named Chris Hartwick keeping the flames burning.

Imagine the problems companies making wheelie bows must be dealing with? I don't envy an archery manufacturing company for the month of October.

I used the store account to read it. Lots of string questions and a guy hunting from a tree stand naked

Facebook is rarely visited by us. All the young family members use it for their parties, etc. Our kids notify us and respond for us also. I visit this forum and one other that has been terminated recently. Too many bashers out there.

And isn’t it something that those same bashers on the other ones always show back up here. :wtf:

I joined FB a few years back so I could see information from reputable fishing and hunting companies. Way too much crap from posters. And way too many ridiculous notifications. You may know this person you may know that. FB tried to link me to people I have never heard of. I no longer have a FB ACCOUNT
I find it s total intrusion of my privacy. FB USES everyone’s information to their gain. People do not seem to understand that every few months the news is full of crap how these social media giants are selling, using and abusing our information for $$$$$$. Makes me sick. I have no social media other than the web forums I decided to join. I’m sure I’ve been exploited by some of those as well but to a lesser degree.
End of rant lol

....I must confess...I am a member of facebook and I do post from time to time....what i post I believe is innocuous and sometimes I post the articles about the good guy shooting the bad guy...sometimes I share a post....like the recent posting of the two Italian men doing the Chicken Dance....hilarious! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ...but that is about it...

I have joined the Excalibur Owner's Forum and try to post in response to someone needing help....I do see a rash of postings about limb breakage...I know that the entire staff of Excalibur works tirelessly to help not only us but everyone that has issues....I know that they have the best warranty in the business...there is no question about it....but help me here....is there a problem with the limbs (I know I have had issues with my 335) or not?

....I know people have ranted and raved about great the Excalibur Crossbow is (and believe me I am one of them).....but I really want to know is there an inherent problem with the limbs on these faster bows or not? I have never heard or seen any issues with the wide wingspan Excalibur's of yore only the newer models...

....please don't take this as bashing because I would NEVER switch to another CB....I have to admit I am concerned that I will be in the woods and hear that stomach wrenching sound of the limbs cracking as I did the first time the 335 gave out while at the range....

PS I struggled with posting this as I do not want to come across complaining I just would like to know what is going on!

You said a mouthful!! Wannabe's and "I'm better at everything than you are's". Jesus...what a bunch of anti-social misfits locked in their mommy's basement, eating Cheeto's and watching reruns of "Friends" in their dirty pajamas, because mommy didn't do the laundry for them! Poor misunderstood little things!
They probably need a "safe place" and a "support animal'. :shock:

What they REALLY need is a JOB and a LIFE followed by a swift, hard kick in the butt!!!
Just my humble opinion!!
