I am trying to decide between the Assassin 400td and the suppressor 400td with the charger EXT system. The internal system seams to be really nice and hopefully reliable but the assassin is 2 lbs. Heavier. I have put both up to my shoulder and they both fit well (the assassin is maxed out on length) but I do feel the weight difference. I was wondering what the charger EXT system is like to operate and use out in the field and is the assassin worth the extra $300.00 + .
Thanks for your help.

They both have good cranks an either will work fine for you I went with the Assassin as I like to not have to take the crank on and off and the added weight helps me hole it steady better. Hope this help out side of the crank they both shoot the same.

I had the 360 Assassin and sold it. I much prefer the 360 TD with the crank. The crank on and off time is truly insignificant with the only downfall is that you might forget to take it with you. As the above post says, either will work fine. It's about personal preference and money.
Keep in mind that 360 to 400 is a good jump in speed but it will come at a cost. You will have more issues in having perfect arrow flight, serving wear will be more if an issue, there are more parts to go wrong. With the Assasin, the internal crank rope needs regular replacement and it will not be as easily serviced/repaired by the run of the mill user.

The one good thing that Excalibur has going is they have a maintenance program after 500 shots you pay $45 dollars and send in the bow and they inspect and repair issues and replace the cocking rope and ship it back to you. I have yet to use this service but if they handle as well as limb replacement we should be fine.
