how to check which year model is my crossbow

Post by fantarain » Tue Jul 15, 2008 11:15 am

I am a new owner of a phoenix, the first crossbow of mine. I just bought the phoenix from ebay. It is brand new and the seller said it is 2008 model. But I can't find any information on the body of the crossbow or anywhere in the package that indicate the model year. Anybody can tell me how to check the year made of the crossbow? Thanks a lot!

I will check the power stroke length when I get home. I am almost sure it's either a 2007 or 2008. Just not sure the exact year. Thanks guys!

Submit a photo as well and we can start guessing.

the new phoenix should measure 17 3/4" from rail/riser joint to the pt it sets in the stock by the saftey.

the camo is green, so it is a 2007 model. Lier on ebay :evil:
I should have compared it with the catalog pic before I bought it :cry:

Any differences between 2007 and 2008 other than the camo color?

smokepolehall,
The length is 17 3/4", so 2007 for sure, right? However it does include a 25 year(1993-2008) anniversary hat in the package, a seller's trick, maybe :?
