I saw on Scorpyd's online store they offer these tools for decocking your crossbow. I was wondering of those that have experience using one do they work well, do they damage string in any way what would your opinions be about their use. The video on Utube I watched looked positive.

I like mine. I leave it right on the 4 wheeler. When I get back to it from the stand or blind I use it and head home. It's pretty easy and I havnt noticed any string wear. I've used it only maybe 30 times. I have a double gun rack on the wheeler so it sits in one and the cross bow in the other. No complaints at all. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can answer anything else about it.

Thanks Ron what model bow do you use it on, do you have the pin that gets bolted through the rail/barrel assy. If so do you just leave that on there. When your putting it on the cocked bow are you able to keep your fingers away from where the string could get them? I could not tell that from the video I watched, once it was on the bow it looked like it worked pretty well.

Are you able to put it on without getting fingers in the way of the string.

There is one of these nobs on both sides. The hooks on the de-cocking device go on the nobs then the little red safty latch gets closed. Slide the bar up until it contacts the string and the anti dry fire. Tighten knob take of safe, fire and loosen knob to let the rod slowly back to the uncocked position. Pull up on red latch take device off cross bow. Done

I just noticed I never wiped down my crossbow after the season ended this past Tuesday. There is scent killer spray on it. The little white dots everywhere. Somebody is going to jump my arse for that I'll bet. This also reminded me I want to take my string off and send it to Jerry for reserving. I havnt heard if Marty got his process figured out. I have one to send his way too. There is alot of shots on that string. Non at any deer though. Just didnt have the right one come in front.
Well i hope the information i gave will help you or anyone else

To answer the question a little further about being in the path of the string
Your hands and fingers are either below the string or out past the string stops.

Ron thank you very much for taking the time to show me that, great photos very clear now I see how it works with the shaft being tapered so it jams against the screw. It looks like you have the spring loaded string stops? If so do they help with string wear or noise?

Dont know about string wear. Not even sure if it quiets it down any. That's what was on it. I do know that it was way quieter than any bow I tested.
I never did get a chance to test the Scorpyd but I did a lot of research on it and others.
I was very lucky to get the Grim Reaper. I was all set to order the Death Stalker and was told to wait just a bit there was something special coming. I only had to wait a few hours and the Grim Reaper was reviled.
This is my first crossbow and it is going to take something real special to replace it. I will never get rid of it though.

Thanks Ron, You are one of many that really seem to like that Deathstalker platform bow, I don't think they sell the Grim Reaper anymore do they?
And thanks again for all your trouble taking those photos for me I appreciate it.

Yea they dont sell the limited edition one but I think they sell the death stalker with 150# limbs. Dont quote me on that though. I havnt been on there site in awhile. The Grim Reaper I have is 17 1/2" axle to axle which I need he in NY to hunt with. Well I need 17" from limb tip to limb tip. Check out there site it should give everything they sell. Wayverns might have the answers also. Somebody on here knows also. Maybe they will jump in where I dont know.

I have both the regular and the Scorpyd version of the Defuser. The regular woks great on my Dagger. I have the thru the rail “pulleys” on the Ventilator and last fall I bought the special adapter for my Deathstalker from a guy either on here or over on CT.

The Scorpyd claw bracket was a bit more sensitive for the DS as the claws weren’t exactly identical. The right side was a snitch longer and hit the hand protector shelf and I had to grind it off a tad for it to clear. I also had the relieve a bit off the red safety latch for it to close.

My only real issue with them was I thought the nock end was a bit sharp at the outer corners than they should be so I radiused and polished the edges.

I like them.
