    Is it quite like using a rope cocker or does it make noise ? I would like one, they say it takes away 50% of draw weight. I guess that's why they call it the 50.

    They concord has auto cocking/decocking with the touch of a button. I really like the scorpyd line out of the three

    i think the ten point is your best bet considering your health. easy to cock with a accu draw and a great shooter. they are also well known for there dependability.

    Accu50 is basically a spring loaded, built in rope cocker. 50% reduction. The advantage of course having your rope cocker on the bow at all times. Yes be careful if you hold down any levers that disengage the accudraw. One slip of your hand and bad things are going to happen. I won't tell you not to do it but I'll say I wouldn't :-)

    Pinshooter explained it to a tee....LOL.....What I like about the 50 is, I never have to worry about, Do I have my cocking device...I have thought about buying a extra rope cocker to carry in my daypack, just in case something happens.....

    high, probably a good idea to have an extra one :-) May never need it but like they say better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it lol

    I all ways have a extra rope cocker, stringer, string in my pack for my Excal...The just in case deal. Both TenPoints I have owned have had the Acudraw, but like I said, I would like to put the AcuDraw 50 on my Turbo instead of the regular AcuDraw if it cuts down the draw like they say it does but i'll wait till after surgery before I spend the money for it.

    If selection is poor in your area, then warranty and repair service will be the same and you should choose a bow accordingly.
    Excalibur is not the only one that makes a recurve. Tenpoint makes a recurve called the flex.

    Cams on a bow will mean more maintenance. Timing can be critical and many have serving wear issues on the cables.
    Compound crossbows will need to go to a bow shop just for routine maintenance.

    Considering ... the "noise" of using a crank cocking device? Well, you crank it up when you get out of the truck... no noise penalty. If you shoot a deer and reload... no scare the deer noise penalty. If you shoot "at" a deer and miss ... and reload ... well, you already screwed up, so the noise penalty is your own fault ... lol Grin & bear it. If you want to shoot two or three deer in succession ... well now you have a problem.

    When I use my C2 crank cocker for hunting (and sometimes while just shooting) I release my lever and crank it silently. I engage the lever once the string is engaged. I have never had any problem doing so. I can see how it could bust some knuckles if you let it go but do not see why anyone would let go of that large handle until they are ready to release it. There is only a few lbs. of pressure applied to the handle while cranking. I was doing this a couple of months after having rotator cuff surgery. I could not scratch the top of my head with my arm but I could crank my Excal Vortex with it.

    Thanks guy's for all the replies. Initially I was wanting an Excalibur Matrix 355. This was because I had heard recurves were more trouble free than compounds and my local archer shop (if 2 hours away is local) is a dealer (although he has none in stock). My main issue is I'm only 5"-7" tall with a 24.5" draw. Although I've been attending physiotherapy for shoulder impingement I have never had shoulder surgery and things are progressing nicely. I've never cocked a cross bow so I have no idea of the strength involved.

    The strength ... can be substantial. Not necessarily crazy hard, but it's there. More importantly, while there are tricks to use your weight and leverage to make it easier ... the STRESS on certain joints and ligaments is STILL there.
