I want to buy a new crossbow, Im familiar with them and i prefer them over compound bows. Have an entry level crossbow for a few years. I want something that shoots fast and is compact. I have up to $800 to put into a set up. Ideas, brands, and for sales appreciated.
Located in Acworth, GA. Thanks

^^^^I agree.
I can’t rave enough about excalibur.

My buddy has a ten point that always gave him trouble.
His Barnett is crap too.
He ended up breaking a limb on the ten point and it was $400 just for the new limbs.
Excalibur will warranty their stuff for life.
I needed new limbs on a 15 year old exocet and they warrantied them even though I wasn’t the original owner.

You can change the string yourself in the field ....no shop or wait times.
Just a quick sight in and done.

Tough as nails....I dropped one from 30’ up a tree upside down on its scope.
Killed a deer with a perfect heart shot 40 min later.

I’ve had several compound crossbows until I obtained an excalibur.
Dude there might be faster bows out there but excals are more than fast enough plus easy to maintain and work on yourself....always consistent shooters.
I just bought a new never hunted with micro 355 suppressor from a member here.
It’s freaking awesome. $800 brand new at a used price.

Tiny, quiet, fast and comfortable.
Target acquisition is fast given the bullpup style design.
Perfect for walk/stalk hunting .

I’ve hunted with many crossbow guys and it seems like they’re always having issues with their compound crossbows while my excalibur’s are always rock solid and problem free.

If i can give any advice for excalibur users and any other crossbow user for that matter...it’s make sure your string is in good shape and make sure your cocking aid rope is not frayed at all.

When I see one at a killer price it’s crazy not to jump on it.

You can still find really good full sized excalibur’s for $400-$500 here.
$800 will get you a $1200 crossbow all day long.

If you can shoot what you intend to buy, before you buy it (all bow shops will let you shoot before buying)
listen to how loud it is when you pull the trigger
then decide if that's the one you want to use in the Deer woods

Tenpoint for sure. I have one and I'll never buy a different brand. Fast and accurate. I get 2 inch groups at 30 40 and 50 yards.
