They are waiting on risers to be delivered.
Suppose to ship in June but who knows for sure. :noidea:
Should be ready before the fall season. :)
Here's the best pic of one that I know of.
Moon was kind enough to take it for me at the ATA show.
Thanks again, Moon. :thumb:

He quoted you, Moon, so you answer. :D
Actually, the mount will work fine the way it is and may be necessary for some guys to get the proper eye relief.
I just think it's kind of ugly, the way it's mounted in the pic. :)
Have no idea how the balance would be affected without handling the bow.

Agreeded, This is the most stupid mount I ever seen.
Most likely was put on by a worker not a Hunter.
I went to a show once and seen a scope mounted 90* off. They told me the rifle was sighted in and ready to go. I just:D and walked away.

It is the way it is

resulting from the design to get the maximum power stroke. You end up with a scope rail sitting too far to the rear, as it is on the Strykeforce and some others. I learned to shoot the Sf with my head positioned to the rear and after doing that for a while, I found it comfortable shooting that way out of tree stands. I'd prefer having the scope rail sitting 2 to 3 inches farther to the front of the crossbow and would be perfectly willing to give up 20 to 30 fps from that 425 fps to get that, but speed sells. You can always use that protruding unsupported section of the scope for a carrying handle...............:D Only kidding!
