Ever think about trying Relief Factor that's advertised on TV for your shoulder?Shoulder has continued hurting, especially after crank cocking either the X1 or R26. Cocked the X1 5 times yesterday and, although thinking a few weeks ago that it helped my shoulder pain, it’s proving now to be causing the pain to worsen. Thanks to you guys that PM’d me with suggestions that I might try to overcome this worsening situation other than kicking up pain killers.
Being desperate now to find something that might get me through this hunting season, I tried something this morning that I felt was risky and likely to make matters worse. I pulled my little shortened Excal Micro recurve off the hook and went out in the back yard with it, remembering that I rope cocked it a few times a few months ago with no problem. Pulling the rope cocker up using mainly my back while keeping my arms extended out straight is completely different than cranking 10 to 12 times for each shot.
I cocked the Micro 4 times this morning, scared that it may make matters worse, but I did it anyway to be sure. NO PAIN!!!! 👍🏻and it’s going on 8:30 pm😊. This could backfire on me but I’m going to continue cocking it 3 or 4 times daily and hunt with it until I see it’s eventually going to be causing as much pain as the crank cocking has been causing. Yep, I’ve loved recurves for a long time but I got caught up in the new crossbow technology. Most of my hunting shots over the years have been less than 40 yards and this little crossbow is deadly accurate out to those distances. The arrow just takes longer to get there😆 View attachment 208389
