Has anybody seen the assassin yet? I couldn't find it earlier today .
Just a few pictures so far.
In a day or two, there should be plenty of info on the Assassin, the new Ten Points, the new Camx, etc.
The new Tenpoints are reveled and on their website now.
I found the Assassin @ Wyvern's, David is taking preoreder's if anyone has $1599.99 burning a hole in your pocket .
Heck I,ll take a few at that cheap price
looks like a over accesserized turd to me
But it's a polished turd , they cost more $$$$ .
Lol! I guess all that fancy stuff going to make everyone a better shot an hunter they seem to have lost touch an not figured out most are hunters an not target shooters I could see if they maybe had a blue target model like that without all the crap maybe I,m old school an not keeping up with the times .
OK, so I'm a huge fan of Excalibur, but this will not make it's way into my stable. I'm just not sure where they're going.
Sad part is the resale value .
I'm wondering what the finance rate is.....
This advertisement cracks me up. Guess you have to make something sound better than it is, and the competition worse than it is, to sell something. I think it's hilarious making a commercial for your new bow, showing people having trouble cocking your own other bows. Like watching an "As seen on TV" ad.
Bruce, I think those days are gone. Make sure that what you buy is what you want, and the cost is what you think is fair without thinking about resale value. Sad indeed.
Yea, archery products in general have always been a bad investment, unless your investing in outdoor fun time.
Looks like it's got a sled on it ????? Am I right ???
Looked a lot like the Ravin setup. Flat cable connected to a moving trigger box. As one guy said on Crossbow Nation, Yuck! Hope it doesn't fire without pulling the trigger like a Ravin. Oops, I forgot. That was user error, or using improper arrows or nocks that made them fire without pulling the trigger.
Now, Excal's new silent crank looks good. Might have to consider that.
Let's see what they sell for, i can deal with the clicking sound, just cock that baby in the parking lot before heading out! I'm hearing retail around $229 for that new gizmo.
You heard right.
Yeah, Dan. I was initially impressed, and I think it would be a good unit for a heavy draw recurve. You could keep the simplicity and light weight, and still get the silent cocking. I did read Robert's post on CN, I believe, where he said you could crank the C2 silently if you are careful. I did not know that. Wouldn't require the "retrofit" whatever either. Keeping my options open, but at this point, I'm leaning towards not making anything I can't rope cock. If the Patriot 380 can't kill it, maybe I shouldn't be hunting it.
