Archery season starts in a week and my bow is back for repair so I am going to be using my crossbow. But I am getting a surprising amount of variation in my shots. I assume it is from variations when I am cocking it with the rope cocker. Will a crank style give me better consistency and groups?

If your rope cocker is working correctly there shouldn't be any difference between the two. I had one of the pulleys freeze up on my rope cocking aid a few years back and it was cocking my crossbow "kitty wompus". I had to take the claw assembly apart and give it a ream job with a 3/16" drill bit and all was well again after that.

A cocking aid will always cock your crossbow correctly (straight back) versus just using your bare hands where one arm could pull harder than your other arm (cocking aid will automatically balance this out).

B. Stout is correct, check your scope for tightness if you have one on the bow, then check your trigger assembly bolts. Get her done for the opener...good luck!
