Re: Stabilizers PointBlanc :-(

I have just bought a PointBlanc deluxe. And there are a stabilizer with that model. My friend also have a PointBlanc with a stabilizer. They are different. Mine has a screw at the end of it. My friend´s is a solid tube. His stabilizer seem to work much better than mine does. Both have the Excalibur...

I haven't got a single clue what you're talking about. Can you fill me in? :oops: if that is the case I don't think you are going to be much use to me :P Target (FIELD) Crossbows don't allow scopes. SPORT AND IBO crossbows DO. However, the problem with using a SCOPE on 3D courses or in formal WCSA ...

Anyone Ever set up an excalibur for 3D or "WCSA" S

with a conventional archery sight and scope? I used to shoot 3D with a varizone but I am thinking of taking Bill Pimm's (President of TNC) suggestion and setting up a Phoenix (heaviest current excalibur legal in IBO and WCSA) like I do a Point Blanc with a SureLoc sight but since magnification is le...

That is true from what I remember=we were a TR dealer, they gave me one of those to try and I gave it to a guy with a horton because I couldn't get it to work on a cast riser vixen

MultiPin for excalibur

A good friend emailed me asking if I could recommend a multi pin site for another guy's excalibur. I never use anything but a scope (save for a sure loc on my point blanc target bows). any suggestions?

I will be making some up because for the last few years I used the GT. They aren't quite as straight as X7 but they don't bend. I alway go as long as possible while still getting TWO bolts out of one shaft so near 17". I use a 2117 driver in the rear and an insert and a 145 grain bullet point in the...

Its ok for indoor but outdoors you are handicapped because 20?64 is about the thinnest bolt you can use and the trajectory sucks at 65M (believe me i have spent alot of time customizing one). The trigger isn't in the same league as a Contender (Australia) Spirit (GB) PennyPacker (USA) or one of Robi...

For years TNC-NAA tracked the rules as set forth by the IAU (internationale armbrust union) which only specified 12-18" bolts with no diameter specs. The newer Australian based WCSA is now what TNC -NAA is following and they do have a limit.

Target Shooters

The NAA and the NFAA along with TNC have adopted the WCSA rules for target xbows-the bolt must be between 12 and 18 inches and IT CANNOT EXCEED 21/64. gold tip lasers are thus not legal in NAA tournaments for most xbow target archers-whose bows are designed for outdoor competition this doesn't matte...

"the source" has demonstratable psychological issues. He's one of the "its my religion" cultists. If you don't follow his creed (ie the bowhunting should be pure) then you are disrespecting his "god".

Re: Will there be any new models for 2006?

Just curious if Bill and Kath have any new models in the works for 2006? I would love to see them come out with a more powerful bow than the EXOMAX. I currently own one and I cock it by hand without the rope cocking aid with little effort. I would love for them to design a 300 lb bow! Mario Do you ...

I have used them several times-lost one deer when it crashed down a ravine and a flash flood warning kept me out (law enforcement directive) I put velcro on my vixen at the left side of the stock under the riser. works well. 32 yards is my max shot with one. its useful where I hunt because of a coup...
