Whats the word on this one???
I appreciated the smallness of the SWAT compared to hunting with my Aculeus 460 & BD400.With my 3 kids always using my SWAT XP....small sounds good
Especially other manufacturers. Cool. They tried to ignore and black-ball my stuff for over 20 years. Well, that's going to come to an end. 😁SWAT XP. Without question, it wasn’t ready for introduction at introduction. Just like some much more established companies’ higher end bows. However, unlike some of these other bows, the company came up with a quick, effective answer - new cables. Further insurance can be easily obtained by slightly detuning. It‘s still fast, and is even more pleasant to use.
Using my normal, obsessive string and cable care, I’ve gotten over 1,000 shots and 100s of hours cocked, on the current, KI XP cables and string. So, KI quickly solved the problem. However, the XP has some design areas that coud be improved upon. I spent a solid month, virtually day and night, with 2 preproduction XPs, but too late to make any production inputs. Others, most on this board with far more expertise than I, also gave KI lots of input. In addition, Jeff A and KI engineers, a new KI cam expert, and Jason all brainstormed the strengths and weaknesses of the SWAT and SWAT XP as well as being responsive to the market and came up with the X1.
The KI revealing will surprise many, in particular, other manufacturers.
TWO DAYS LEFT !!
Yup. And I am very grateful.I've become pretty involved with this swat xp. After getting some issues resolved and guinea pigging some great strings its become more than just another crossbow. Its family now.
Then all of a sudden..I need to start a savings fund for another.....
