I think we have all the manufacturers listed that will get substantial posts, but just curious what other brands are out there that we don't have listed?

There's also Astro Daco, Crissbow, Pearson, Whammo, Bear/Jennings/Buckmaster, Thompson, Swissbow, Campbell and a slew of others.

Do I detect some Xenophobia?

A few of yhese companies are out of business Astro-Daco has not mbow ade a xbow since 1986. Whammo was sued out of business. Bear Jennings has not produced a decent xbow since the Maxpoint in 2004.And these are just xbows I have owned.

2003 Maxpoint


1980 Daco


1970's Whammo

Wow, that maxpoint looks just like an excalibur with compound limbs. I wonndder, the if anyone complained about that when they were being made?
No one compained, the Maxpoint and the Paradox were a collaberation between Bear archery and Excalibur Crossbows. Maxpoint was exactly the same xbow. They were sold in the US by BEAR/jENNINGS and the Paradox was sold in Canada BY Excalibur.These were exactly the same xbow using Excal stock and trigger and a Bear prod. shot 340 fps with a 400 gr bolt and 175# draw.

They were available from 2001-2004. according to Danny Miller, they could have been capable of breaking the 400 fps barrier from the beginning, via slightly different cams and cable set up, but neither Bear nor Excal wanted to upset the parity to vert applecart and they were "tuned down" to 340 fps. Makes me kind of chuckle every time I read a diatribe on the greedy xbow mfgrs.

Traditional Bows

I'll be bringing some traditional flexing bow crossbows over with me as well and you can all shoot them too,THE DEMON BOW will be there as will the DARK ANGEL and a few other's as well for good luck.We can set up target's or go hunting if you like.let's all have some fun now is what i say.Not everyone want's really powerful crossbow's as the ones already out there are good by any standard and have been around for a long long time,and do the job that they were intended for extremely well,i have to say.All i did was to bring out a crossbow for those that want something with more power and speed for whatever reason,maybe hunting or target is fine.I just find it such a BLAST to shoot at target's on high or lower power it's all good fun and i love it all.If it's good fun then do it is what i say :D.

Guy's like us

It's guy's like us,the enthusiast's that all add to this wicked sport and it just keep's getting better everyday.Who know's what all this fantastic development may bring to us all as archery is such good fun whatever you do and all of us get good idea's at some time or another and it's all good fun experimenting when you get these idea's into testing mode and what a big buzz when you find that it work's,and even if it doe's not at first it doe's not mean that it never will.If you want it to work bad enough then you will find a way.Take me for example,it was crap when i first made my very first prototype,it would not put a hole in a paper bag,no kidding and the work i did to get it to that stage was staggering,but i believed in it and found way's to get it to work,man my head still aches now when i think of it all.The times i felt like givving up after going back to the drawing board so many times.The Beast was a total beast to make,trust.Anyway let's all make this sport rock like no other,i say give it what you got.THE CROSSBOW IS JUST AWESOME.i love all crossbows,Phil.Quality will alway's sell,nice bit of quality work moon and wyvern.
