Matthews has jumped into the crossbow manufacturing

I didn't think it would take this long, but they have finally done it. It is always good to have more competition on the market and they have some pretty neat new concepts. And of course on some of the crossbow websites/threads, there are a lot of anti-Matthews comments.

I made the mistake and hunted with a mathews last year.  It saved me a bunch of money on mounts though!!!!

You thinking of getting one of these Skoal???? What kind you shoot now?

Dead animals don't need fur anyway!!!!!!!!!!

Nope. I am going with the Excalibur Ibex crossbow. Shoots 305 ft./s. That is out of the box. With better strings and arrows can get up to around 330 ft./s. They also have a cranking device on which will be easier for me. Hopefully buy it sometime this winter to work on mounting it. It is also more compact/shorter and would be easier to mount on my shooting rig. I have been reading crossbow forums for about a month, and this is the one that should best suit my needs.

Forgot to say that I shoot a Barnett Wildcat right now. It is only around 250 ft./s. I want a new toy.

LOL come on man mathews only has the most target and US archery records.. But to each their own I guess if I miss I usually dont blame the equipment ;) But by your photos you dont have much to complain about missing shots.. Pretty impressive I must say!! O and Nice Bull (drool)
