I like the TwinStrike, But it's going to make it harder to Legalize crossbows for the archery season here in Colorado.
Boo, you're going to have to make twice as many strings... :eusa-dance:
Double the pleasure, double the "fun" ... and double the profit.
Perhaps I should consider twisting strings again :think: ......NOT. :thumbdown:

I just don't see the need.
There is certainly less need here in Ontario with the exception of maybe coyotes. But in areas where you can take 2 turkeys a day or you have an over population of deer, it may be much more practical.
Jeff and Chris are going to buy one each and then molest them! :mrgreen:

I want to shoot one. I bet it's real cool and probably works great. I feel like this would be easy to pull off, but difficult to pull it off right. And without ever seeing any more than anyone else, I suspect it was pulled off right.

If we were allowed to turkeys in a day. I would entertain this.

Forget a follow up shot, are you able to fire both arrows at once?
There are two triggers. It would take more design effort to interconnect their functions so that only one could fire and not both at the same instant.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I would bet it is "yes"....just like two trigger double barreled shotguns.

Yes you can. There is a YouTube video where the guy shoots both at once. I’m trying to figure out if it can be used one “rail” at a time without loading a 2nd bolt?

Been trying to get ahead of this one for a couple years now. Might need two shots

I had 2 coyotes come around the perimeter of my food plot. I squeaked and one ran in and I took a shot at less than 30 yards. The other stayed at 40/45 yards. First one hit on top of it's head and both stood there stunned for about 3 seconds.
On a side note. They both ran into the woods. One started howling and barking louder that I've ever heard a coyote. By the time I was packed up in the truck and at the gate, I could still hear one barking and howling. Either the one died and it's buddy was pissed or the one I shot had a big headache and blamed me :mrgreen:

I hit one with a turkey load at about 12 Y a few years back and it did some thing similar. Found it dead on a fence row

Nice technology, and I can see it's attraction for some.

Not for me, though.....at almost 8 pounds that's a lot of crossbow to drag through the woods. And I have never needed a "quick" follow up shot (though I have sometimes had to use a "finishing" shot). Heck I usually use my muzzleloader (and sometimes even my Matrix) instead of a rifle during firearms season....even though I could have 5 rounds in the rifle.....

The more I look at it the more I like it really. I plan on testing it when my local Excal Dealer gets one.

I hope the Grizzly rises from the dead this fall with a twinstrike stock, one set of the new limbs shooting about 340-360 FPS weighing in around 5 lbs and sells for around the cost of the 340.
