    I have been in two deer hunting situations where I could MAYBE have taken a second shot at a second deer (but in neither case did I have a second tag) - but these are rare...

    Saw another video (link below)...the guy makes a point about A) not really practical for Deer but B) it could see it's calling for hog hunting.

    He's a big guy and to see this thing in his hands outside ( about 11 minute mark) it's a beast.

    Still no info on how to unload this it.

    Also not sure about loading this thing with broadhead fixed...seems kind of tight to have your bare fingers trying to 'push' the arrow down into the locked position.

    Very innovative but in my opinion it is going way away from Excalibur's founding philosophy to keep things simple that made them great like shown on this video "Why Excalibur": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbmdHFiNhu8 . What's next a tri shot LOL?. In my opinion the brand went way down hill after it was taken over by Bowtech.

    Back in the day, Excalibre brand was never that popular in the states..usually around the # 5 position. Under new management, they have obviously changed that approach and are trying to appeal more to that market. Like buddy says in the video, this new bow would appeal to the Hog Hunters.

    I remember once speaking to one the marketing managers in Kitchener and asks about the dry-fire mechs that were on other bows and h said they weren't going that way because they guaranteed their limbs. Not the best answer. A few years later it was adopted by Excalibre...

    7-3/4lbs.......heavy bow!

    Neat concept, but I do not think it is a "must have" have especially for the $2,200.00 price tag. I'll stick with my 335 Micro for the time being

    My dad has one of the Bowtech "Excaliburs", the bloody thing is too short, I think it is the Matrix, so not as small as yours. Any idea why they made the length of pull so short? It feel like I am shooting a kids gun.

    I find them to be too light, great to carry around but freehand make shooting them hard, I would welcome an 8lb bow. I have an exomax from 2008, I will not get rid of that thing, cannot shoot at the same dot twice if you want to save your bolts.

    Well I had the perfect opportunity this year for one. The biggest buck I have ever seen came by, I pulled the trigger and the bolt went down landed between its feet and short. it bolted about 40yds past me and stopped 20yds past me. just stood there and tried to figure out what the noise was. he finally gave up and walked away. I was thinking that if I had a second bolt laying out and the cocking string handy I might have had time to reload and shoot again. not saying i'd spend the money for that one time shot though.

    Isn't it funny how all the guys that were dead set on "deer jumping the string, don't take far shots!" are now admitting that you can get a follow up shot on a deer you already shot at? Hmmmmm

    My initial thought is “gadget” that will appeal to those who invest more in gear than skills and knowledge. Upon further reflection, I tend to agree with mr. Fox; this is just another repeating firearm. If I can live with the fact that some guys hunt with semi-autos, what’s wrong with a repeating crossbow? Some guys take up archery because of the challenge and for the appreciation of traditional gear (the purist), while others do so to access limited hunting opportunities. In the end, it doesn’t matter and to each his own.
