New member here. I have been a bow hunter a lot of years. Been hunting with a Excalibur and other crossbows for a long time. I just landed a sweet deal on the Stryker- Offspring crossbow in black. So I ordered a 2nd pkg deal from the same fellow to have as a back-up crossbow to the 1-st Offspring. These x-bows may not set the world on fire in speed but they sure are smooth and quite. Plus they will keep my Excalibur Brown Deer Hide color Vixen company on the bow rack Nice to be a member of this forum.
