There aren't any that I know of and wouldn't use it on either of my Y25 stocks.

paul,
your reply makes me ask if it would be a safety issue why you would not use one on these stocks?

Well, to me these stocks are like collectable works of art. They shoulder and balance beautifully but are no longer available other than on the trading post. If one was to get damaged or destroyed you're pretty much out of luck. Look at the amount of wood directly between the rope cocker groove and the mainframe....paper thin. Aside from there being no attachment point for a crank the thought of using one on the laminate stock just makes me nervous. That's just me though. :wink:

I agree with Paul because damage to the rare Y25 stock is possible without an attachment point for a crank. Secondly, injury is a concern if an ill fitting crank slipped during the cranking procedure, ouch!

I've used the but plate as an anchor with no problems. That said I agree, that this is a bow best used as a display rather than a work horse

thanks to all of you for your comments. i paid alot of $ for this stock to use it cuz it is the one that allows me to shoot the normal way with my handicaps so it will be used alot and no intentions at all to hang on the wall to look at. but it sounds like there cud be a safety concern so thats more then enough to forget the idea.

Jeff, your best bet would be to contact Mr Miller because if anyone has the knowledge of how to help you would be him.

The y25 stock is awesome for shooting, it feels great. They are a bit more fragile but with care it should last you a long while.
