Re: exocet finally arrived

Got an old Exocet (circa 2000 I think). Changed to molded limbs,fowarded riser for 200 lbs. Added a trimmed rifle cheek piece with double sided tape and a trigger shoe. It fits me to a "T". My oldest grandson shoots an exomag but the old Exocet is mine!

Re: What's a good rangefinder?

Opti-Logic rangefinder---- horizontal mounting for crossbow attachment---- Had an early model that went bad---returned to factory and received their newest model in return---Good service ---

cheek piece install

I have a carved limb exocet that now wears a forward riser and molded limbs upgrade. I'd like to add a factory cheek piece(got a homemade foam one now). How difficult is it to cut a cheek piece to fit the old stocks?? Or should I just be happy with my homemade one....

Re: 20 year old Excalibur 165 Exocet still deadly on 14 poi

Congrats,,, great buck!!
Using an exocet myself. Got the grandson an equinox, great bow, but the exocet was my first crossbow and it "fits me to a T"... Thought several times of upgrading but keep asking myself---WHY--- so far cant find a good reason to change... The exocet will probably out last me..

Weight Removal

Just got an equinox 225#. I like the overall feel but that extra weight out front of the disappator bars and s5's sure makes it feel lots heavier than my carved limb exocet. Has anyone taken the bars and s5's off and been just as happy ???
