There seems to be a hard core group that loves the speed the new model desert stryker has had all kinds of trouble and the big stryker has also had problems you should be able to do a search on here and get an eye full on both bows against all advice I bought the Excaliber Equinox and I love the thing but I like to tinker with my equipement and I love shooting 80 yards at a TARGET it is a real hoot

Iam not saying yes or no...All you reallyneed is 265-295 fps to be good for just about all NABG......I just wouldnt spend that much on one CB.....When you can get two nice ones for the price of one..(one that still has issues)....

I guess it would have to be a good ego booster! LOL!! IF you do the math on what that gains you versus the speed of sound and a deers reaction time you do not get the four times in price you pay for them IMO. I do not see the need for it since I do pretty good at getting most of me deer within twenty yards when I hunt, but if a guy is having trouble getting busted alot then maybe them CB's would appeal to him. Lots of guys went out and lined up like kids at the candy counter to buy them. Alot of them same guys are having problems with them. All have also said Bow Techs costumer service sucks and then add in that savage arms bought them out and that is way to much money to spend on something with that kind of past and unknown future.

I don't care for them, one is too heavy and comes w/ a sight that is graduated 20,40,60 yds. Imho, 60 yds is 20 yds too far to shoot at deer w/ an arrow. The 2nd issue, the Desert Stryker, has a recall on all previously sold for trigger work.There have been posts about limb issues and lack of customer service on Bowtechs part on AT, just ask Rick, aka BiggBirddVa. There are several xbow companies that have legendary customer service, hopefully bowTech will get their act together xbow wise. Their compound verts seem to have an excellant reputation.
