    Thumbs down Excalibur crossbows - do not buy- UPDATE

    DO NOT BUY!!! One of the worst experiences!!! Bought Excalibur Bulldog 440 package a month ago and put 3 bolt to sight it in.... Went hunting and shot a deer from 20 yards.... The left limb split in peaces... injured a deer, hopefully it will survive. Called customer service (and they never pickup the phone, you have to leave a message, they called back after 2 voicemails). Drove to Kitchener to repair. Came back and sighted in again (with 4 arrows). Went hunting... Sitting on tree-stand, crossbow is hanging on the hook beside me... Suddenly, hear cracking... Looked at the limbs.... the right limb STARTS SPLITTING right in front of my eyes!!! OMG!!! Second day of hunt RUINED!!!! THIS IS TERRIBLE PEACE OF EQUIPMENT!!! 2 days of PRIME hunting time is gone/wasted, gas, time from work.thumbnail_IMG_2249.jpgthumbnail_IMG_2392.jpg

    UPDATE: Went their shop and they replaced the limbs (also was told that they had a batch of limbs "overcooked" . Went hunting yesterday and was able to stay all day... Limbs did not breake! I am so happy : ). Did not see a deer though : (

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?
