Default Stryker is out

OK....so who is standing in line at the dealer.

The website has alot of more info on it now, but I still don't think that it would be a wise investment untill the bugs and flaws are worked out...maybe someday, but daym does anyone really need that kind of speed? And how do you afford all the bolts that you are going to lose and bend/break.

I vote we volenteer Dan to be to one to run out and get one he is real good at expiermenting and giving reports on things so I personally feel he would be the best man for the job.. lol

This new crossbow is going to have 175lbs draw weight, with an approx. 18" power stroke. They are boasting 405fps w/ 425gr arrow, which mathmatically = 154 ft lbs of kinetic energy. Now that doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out, that this xbow is going to hit HARD, and break and punch through bones like toothpicks.

Henry: Hows about I walk out and not get one? 22" arrows w/ half-moon nocks, internal/infernal? chain cocking device, 11 lbs, still no real info on the web site. I'd rather have a 10 pt Pro-Elite.

Which brings up my next question to the crossbow master builders at Ten Point. What? and How? and most importantly WHEN? is Ten Point going to respond or answer/counter this new crossbow soon to be on the market?

Randy told me that they are going to be some surprises for 2007 ,, but that they would not be coming out with a crossbow that shoots over 400fps...
