Golfcat,

I've been shooting my 165lb Exocet since 1998 with 2117's (2216's weigh the same) and getting 287 ft/sec with 100 gr points.
That combo goes clean through deer, bear and moose and the best part,
I can draw that xbow while seated in my ladder stand....if/when a follow-up shot is required!

Hi Wabi, No worries, you're not laying anything on me that I hadn't already taken into consideration. Traditions doesn't even build their guns....they're imports. I wanted to get into muzzle-loading but couldn't justify the price tag of a TC break-action....they're almost 3x the price and I didn't w...

This debate has gone on for as long as I can remember and I've been shooting and hunting with bows since the early 80's!!!!!! Back then xbows weren't as numerous nor as popular in the deer woods and mostly populated by the vertical bow hunter using traditional gear (recurve and cedar shafts).... sim...

Boo, I've always shot Hoyt's, their simply the best. I (finger) shoot a Protec (Spiral Cam &1/2) w/XT2000 limbs. As short as it is and as aggressive the cams, arrow groups/consistancy is awesome. Finger pinch is a bit of issue and I'm seriously thinking of selling it and going with a longer axle-axl...

Well, i certainly wouldn't take a shot at game out to that distance. Or even half that distance! Sounds like that dealer was confusing FITA equipment with hunting equipment. 90 meters is a common distance for FITA tournaments. Wouldn't it be interesting to see Excaliburs in FITA tournaments.
