Excalibur was founded in 1983 by Bill and Kath Troubridge and has built its reputation on producing efficient, accurate hunting crossbows. Excalibur crossbows are specially designed with hunting in mind, and therefore provide features that are most useful for hunters. Each of their crossbows comes with a special instructional DVD that will teach you how to get the most out of your bow.
Notable features of Excalibur crossbows include stocks made with advanced composite technology that are not only warm to the touch but durable enough to stand up to the worst wear and tear, triggers that reduce the pull to less than 3 lb for the most accurate targeting and a modular recursive limb system that produces bolt speeds faster than most compound bows without their weight or other mechanical problems. Excalibur’s newest crossbow model is the Axiom, which has a draw weight of just 175 lb but is capable of launching arrows with speeds of up to 305 fps.
