    Mission archery unveils two game-changing crossbows

    MISSION ARCHERY UNVEILS TWO GAME-CHANGING CROSSBOWS AND THE
    INDUSTRY’S FIRST SILENT MECHANICAL COCKING DEVICE

    Sparta, Wisconsin – MXB-400™: Mission Archery® breaks new ground with the MXB-
    400™—a screaming-fast, 400 FPS crossbow built on a lightweight frame. Shooters can now
    achieve tighter pin gaps without sacrificing mobility thanks to a 14” power
    stroke and balanced frame.

    The MXB-400™ takes advantage of a host of proven technologies such
    as the RSS Tread™ which makes conventional foot-stirrups obsolete,
    the PCC Anchor™ that eliminates the possibility of string hook jumps,
    and the BIASS Rail™ that minimizes weight and enhances downrange
    accuracy. Dual X-Cams™ significantly reduce recoil making the MXB-400™
    the ultimate speed bow. Starting at $1199*, the MXB-400™ comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    MXB-DAGGER™ – At just 30 inches, the Dagger™ can go
    with you anywhere. With a power-stroke of just 10” and a
    physical weight of only 6.3 lbs, the Dagger™ is Mission
    Archery®’s lightest, most compact crossbow to date.
    Powered by the all-new perimeter-weighted WX-Cams™, the Dagger™ is truly silent and nimble. Starting at
    $799*, the MXB-Dagger™ boosts speeds of 340 FPS and comes with an industry-leading Limited Lifetime
    Warranty.

    All MXB Crossbows are compatible with the new RSD System™—the first silent mechanical cocking
    device. Both the MXB-Dagger™ and MXB-400™ come assembled and include a Mission Archery® case.
    Available in Tactical, Lost AT®, Snow and Pink Camo finishes. To learn more, visit
    www.missionarchery.com or your nearest Authorized Mission Archery® Retailer.

    Looks like Mathews is putting a lot of time and energy into the crossbow market.

    Still not sure as to why you would need a crossbow that's a compound.
    Why mess with cables if you don't need to.

    Pennsylvania game commission studies show the archery season deer kill up substantially due to crossbows.
    My advise is to do everything you can to keep them out of your vertical bow archery season. However, as we've all come to learn, money talks,etc etc, you know the rest.

    More speed with less pull weight and are much quieter. Excalibur crossbow is like a .22 going off.

    Keep thinking that and your license costs will go through the roof. It's a proven fact that hunters are getting older, and young people coming into the sport aren't filling the voids left by an aging hunter base. Also, let's face it, there's a LOT of people going into the woods every year that have no business using a bow. Better stat would be to see if the wounding rate actually dropped. Crossbows aren't going anywhere and they aren't decimating deer herds nearly as much as gun hunts during the rut. Ask other PA hunters what happened to deer numbers when they included doe days in with the gun opener. Then we'll talk about deer numbers being thinned out.

    Yep, the KodaBows are much quieter than the Excaliburs and you can actually using dampening systems on them that actually work. The trigger is a lot nicer on the KodaBows as well.

    Why isn't this in the crossbow section?
    Unlike those that shoot a Dixon Ticonderoga, I shoot bows. All kinds of bows.

    My opinions are MY OPINIONS. Take them for what they are worth.

    Maybe you should report it?
    It would be like pulling up beside a cop, rolling your
    window down and yelling slow down.

    Oh ok I thought that they were all around 160 to 180 pounds.
    Are these less than that?

    it's not as hard to cock & smaller. My equinox was a bear to cock at 225lbs! And was way to big , but would last a lifetime I'm sure. It was fun for a minute but I traded it for a good back up bow.

    Gotta love the guys with little information about them, going on hearsay, perceived notions about them. Know nothing about their limitations and bash them down-----------deja vu-----same exact notions were said about compounds.
    Do I shoot one-----no I personally enjoy vertical bows. But if it takes a crossbow to get me hunting then so be it. It's a good hunting tool, know the limitations of them. They are noisy, I and the people that sell them in the shop consider them a close range weapon on a whitetail because of that noise they are not faster than the speed of sound and in some cases are slower than some vertical bows today. They have been legal in Michigan for about 3 years now for anyone to use---------it hasn't impacted the deer herd on bit.
    By the way they make a very excellent, well built crossbow.
    Have a good day and a better hunt

    And conversely Dale you gotta love the guys that have first hand experiences with how the addition of crossbows has impacted the early archery season. It's easy to come on here and play on emotions and be all PC and say what one perceives to be the right thing to be well received. Of course this does vary by state. Some in this country are able to say "we need more hunters". In Pennsylvania that certainly isn't the case at least not in southeastern Pa..
    All of this is off topic from the theme of this thread and i apologize for contributing to that.
    In all honestly it does look like an awesome rig, just wish I didn't hate them (crossbows in general) for what I've seen them do to archery season in my home area.
