The swat broadhead looks really cool but l find it odd that the blades dont have the "traditional " curve on the leading edge to open up fast as possible. The shwacker dosent open up in a hurry either and it works so maby it's not a concern just seems odd .

with such a short tip if the leading edge of the blade was the trigger the blades could lever the head with nothing inside the hide to keep it on track. Swhackers open inside as well and they work amazingly well for me.

Everything considered, I think 2019 will be a bright year for Excalibur and Excalibur owners. At the annual technical meeting both Danny Miller and I both said we had few complaints and or changes wanted.
I'm still trying my best not to buy the 440 but at times, I feel compromised. :wtf: I do know I need at least one Proshot trigger, especially at the current price! :thumbup:
That 440 feels like the 50cal of the crossbow world. Lots of bows moving faster this year, but that 440 you could almost feel the power slamming the target

Many many sweet bows released this year. :)
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.

We made it home late last night and have to go to school today. Thank you to everyone from the forum that we met! My Dad feels much better about who I talk to on here. There were a lot of great items and some things I looked for that were absent. I will write some reviews on my favorite stuff later. I hope everyone made it back safe and with a bag full of goodies!

Thanks, Silly me, I couldn't find it until I looked under shooting accessories :crazy:

I'm way too spoiled, I was buying my TriggerTechs from Cabelas for $115 when they had them.
