Crossbows


Anybody have experience with the Skorpyd Ventilator?

How about reverse draw technology in general?

Any insights?

  1. Crossbows are nice and all but in practicality, bit of a pain in the ass.. the term KISS comes into mind... Keep it simple stupid. Or is it Keep it stupid simple.... oh well
    On a crossbow you have to stop, pull the string back, mount the bolt... find your target, aim at your target, and release.....

    Compound or long-bow. you can do all those things at once.. Plus the arrows are longer meaning more mass behind pushing the broad-head into your target. It's probably quieter too.

    1. The main "advantage" in a crossbow; less actual training is required to be proficient in their use. It takes more skill (practice) to use a long bow effectively.

      I agree with Knob, a good long bow, or compound bow if that is your preference, has more advantages once the proper skills in their use are learned.

      I may be a little biased in my opinion on this matter. I was taught from a very young age to shoot on a simple re-curve bow. No compounds or crossbows involved, nothing more then a "bow and arrow". The use of a Long Bow came a little later in my youth, as did the costs.
