I shot one earlier this fall ... I was not impressed ... it vibrated when I shot it " scared the crap out of me " ! I checked to make sure that everything was tight , and it was ... I asked the guy what the extra vibration was and he said it was the " awsome speed " ... then he went on to trash tal...

set up the apex with a set of dissipator bars and a stabilizer that originally came with one of my point blanc deluxes. I note the stirrup extensions went in easily but trying to remove one (to install the DB's) was problematic and the bar unscrewed from the bolt-I suspect the tension might have cau...

The APEX is now available-the Guys from Excalibur brought one down to me on their way to the ATA show. I don't know if the thumbhole jobs are yet-I was told a couple months.

that is match crossbow shooting where the competitiors can use the supporting rifle jackets and pants. Whacker of Switzerland makes some of the best bows. Some is shot at short range with real "bolts". The draw on these bows can be heavy though. Kneeling with slings can be part of that competition I...

set the bow up without either the dissipator bars or the stabilizer I am planning to put on it-IE just out of the box. TNC legal 2114 X7 with feathers weighing 330 or so. (above the listed requirement for this bow). basic dacron string. took a few shots at my own range before taking it to the JOAD c...

Started seriously hunting with an Excalibur Vixen and used it for a couple years before I got the urge for more speed. Bought an Exocet and found it to be very good for deer hunting, probably all I needed. Then the Phoenix came out with basicly the same power & velocity on a shorter frame, so I bou...

I still have the first (and crappy) crossbow I got when i was 13 (1972) and my first serious hunting xbow (a 125 lb Horton Safari Magnum I bought from the then distributor which was near my law school at Cornell in 1981).

Jim,is there any way of putting a Point Blanc front end on the Apex or is the design that different or integral. Well the plastic stock is the same. The aluminum part of the stock is more like the vixen-the PB had that long extension past the riser. the trigger is the same the riser is different (m...

Yes it does and the instructional supplement indicates DACRON only. With the light weight and short power stroke you probably could get away with Dyneema but no real point to do so-its an idoor target bow-no way you would use this for a WCSA 900 round or the NAA style FITAS we are now shooting in oh...
