    Default Worlds First Torsion Crossbow

    A little piece of me died putting this in the "bow"hunting section, but here it is...The first torsion crossbow.

    Do you think this will catch on?

    I think it will catch on...I for one would use it.

    I like the idea, and the video shows it, that when carrying other 'stuff' there is NO limbs to get in the way.

    Wish they had let the 2nd video run 10 sec longer so you could hear the release, not that it should be that noisy, but would be nice to hear it.

    Gasped at the price I saw, $2K US, but then a lot of the newer 'bows' (?) are getting into that price range.

    Thanks for posting that...

    Cold weather testing will tell the tale. It certainly looks like something I would trade up to. It's a great day not having to worry about hitting limbs and such.

    Is the price worth getting used once every three years, not sure.

    My next questions would be about ease of maintenance and tuning.

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

    I wonder if this would even be considered a bow?

    I can't see why it wouldn't. It has a string and limbs, granted the limbs are curled up.

    Downside as with all speed demons is the slow cocking. I hate the idea of needing the crank or rope aid. I do use the aid for proper string alignment but it's nice to be able to do it by hand.

    I've used my rope aid in treestands many times, not really an issue, I do like to be able to it by hand, but I think with any bows on the market now, that is all but impossible.

    I like the specs...10lbs and 360 fps with a 100 gr tip,,,not shabby.

    I like it , it will take off if they market it properly.
    Price not a big concern.
    I would purchase one.

    I saw a comment...the guy referred to it as a 'harpoon'...HaHa.

    The company is marketing as a cross bow with coiled (spring) limbs...

    Ya, it would just depend on what they determine is necessary. It is not a longbow, recurve, compound bow or crossbow. If the definition is energy trapped in a limb then sure but that may not be the case.
