    Excalibur owners/shooters seem to have more brand/style loyalty than virtually any other brand. However, I notice a significant # of the Excal owners show interest in Scorpyd or actually own at least...

    I think I have a point worth considering. Many compound crossbows get out of time due to string stretch. Many shops totally ignore brace height and timing. Most of us don't have crossbow presses at...

    Where did you find this? Remember, Excal was waiting until the ATA to "officially" announce the Mini 335. Sold over a thousand (likely many 1000's ) by now and the ATA is still a while off.
