It is important to cock your crossbow perfectly straight as it directly affects your accuracy. Most people who are new to crossbows donít know this and itís common for first time users to come back to the stores to complain that their crossbows are not aiming correctly.
Crossbow cocking devices are used to help pull the string back and at the same time, evenly distribute the tension. This result is a forward force that will prevent the arrow from wobbling.
Choosing the Right Cocking Device
In choosing the right cocking mechanism, you have to consider several things. If you will be shooting mostly for a competition, adding weight to your crossbow can wear you down and may affect your accuracy. Using a rope type would definitely work to your advantage. However, if you are shooting to hunt, a crank type will be faster to use and will definitely be useful for fast targets. You do however need to consider getting a silent crack so as not to startle your target.
The right cocking device can be advantageous for both beginner and expert alike. Just make sure you are choosing the one that is best for you.
