Point well taken. In truth, there is no "real" need !! The need for ever increasing speed is a myth, and a clever means to an end, devised by those with ulterior motives.

Touting speed, is an effective means of putting extra cash in the pockets of those who can convince the less than knowledgable public that the extra speed will improve performance and increase success.

The truth be known, more is better only to a certain point, as a "Bell Curve" clearly illustrates, beyond that point there is only sharply diminishing returns.

aa few years back i looked at middleton before i bought my excal.....nice looking bow ...kind a looks almost as good as the excalibur and why not try to copy one of the best....sounds like they took it a step further with the speed and poundage.....if ... if it's true ....

I wouldn't buy one just on principle. They are using someone else's hard work to make money! There is no way to describe it other than DIRTY!!!

I find it funny they have no prices on website. Leads me to believe they are expensive. Even when I go garage saleing if no prices I don't ask

I'm frequenting about 20 xbow forums. I rarely see Mtons mentioned. None of the web stores have them listed. 'We' talk more about them here than anywhere else, and that's a rare thing, imo.

I'm just curious by nature, they have to have roughly the same machinery as Excal to make them, and if no-one is buying them, how are they staying in business if they even are?

I wonder if they were at the ATA show? Anyone know?

Very interesting dw. The ad states: "...and hard to get a hold of". Aint that the truth! Just wait till theres a warranty claim than I think it will be "...imposible to get a hold of"
