Alís just had a deal on a Excalibur 350 LE by time I found out they were all out...Stryker solution LS is on sale right now from $999 to $799. Those crossbows anygood?? Iíve never bought one will be my 1st crossbow.
I have a recurve bow but donít trust myself shooting big game with it just yet aim isnít as good as I would think with a crossbow would be.

Not familiar with the Stryker bows. I have an Excalibur. Great bow. Deadly accurate and bullet proof. Happy hunting

The stryker is a fantastic bow. Yes Excaliburs are the best however the new micros are an umpf to load and for weaker individuals and or a person with back or shoulder injuries can be problematic to load. The stryker is the solution. Same company, same great service and warranty. And much quieter. Purchase either with confidence. Al will take care of you...

My boy got an 8 point on Saturday with his Micro 350. I have matrix 380 I have taken 2 deer with it, one at 20yd and the other at 30. My boy borrowed my 380 his first year and got a doe at 50yd. He had never fired a xbow before. They are deadly accurate. If I had to do it over I would get the mirco 350 that my boy has. It is lite and small.

Yes Excalibur rules. and they stand behind there stuff.

Get a crank and let your arms do the work

I have an extremely bad lower back, I bought a crank a roo, I believe it is called for the Excalibur, fits all of them I believe. I used it for the first 2 years, then decided to try with out. I haven't used is since. I don't find it hard on my lower back, but everyone is different. The crank is the way to go if you think you are going to have problems. Do as I did buy it then you have it if needs, if not needed keep it for any time you might need it. I carry the crank in the case all the time just in case.
