Excalibur crossbows online store from huntinggiant.com? There are plenty of new features on the Lawless, including the 4-track cam system that features an integrated yoke system designed to correct cam lean and balance limb tip load for easier tuning. There’s also a new rotating module that makes it a snap to adjust for draw length in ½-inch increments. The redesigned roller guard and string stop work together to ensure arrow clearance and decreased noise, and the improved grip was made to ensure comfort and reduce torque. I’ll confess that shooting a bow with a brace height just over 5 inches always scared me a bit, as I expected a harsh rollover and a short valley. But the Lawless was a pleasant surprise. At 356 IBO, this is one of those exceptions to the slow-down trend, although our testing has shown in the past the Obsessions IBO rating should be taken with a grain of salt. For now, we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. I shot more arrows than I originally intended, which to me is proof the Lawless is a comfortable and pleasant shooter for such a fast-rated bow.
Elite’s new Kure bow is a finely tunable machine made for archers looking for flight perfection. The new S.E.T. (Simplified Exact Tuning) technology allows archers to micro-tune the cam at the limb pocket for perfect arrow flight. The ASYM Tri-Track cams themselves are a new build, and they make it simple to adjust draw length, cable stops, and limb stops. At nearly 32 inches axle-to-axle, it’s leaning towards last year’s trend of longer bows. It weighs in at 4.6 pounds and hits the target at 335 max fps. A nearly 7-inch brace height allows for stability, and this bow offers draw lengths of 25.5-30 inches and weight options from 40 to 70 pounds, respectively. The Kure is available now at your local Elite retailer.
It seems to be the year of the tune. Like Bowtech, Elite’s newest model boasts built-in tuning that’s unique from anything previously available. The KURE features Elite’s new Simplified Exact Tuning (SET) system which allows for micro-adjusting of the limb pockets to the cams for precise string alignment and arrow flight. The bow also utilizes Elite’s new ASYM Tri-Track Cams with Versa Mod System that allows the user to adjust draw length, cable stops and limb stops. The KURE weighs in at 4.6 pounds, measures 31 inches in length and sells for about $1,100.

We’ve seen no shortage of innovation in crossbow design over the past few years. This year’s innovation nod goes to Barnett. Their Hyperflite EVO 420 applies an interesting new design in which the cams are mounted directly to the bow’s riser instead of the limbs. It not only makes for a striking profile, but Barnett also claims the system improves accuracy while reducing vibration, noise, cam lean, and torque. I had the chance to shoot this at the range a few times and, while it’s far from a thorough evaluation, it did feel solid and relatively free of vibration. The Hyper-Flite Track minimizes arrow contact along the rail—something that, in theory, should greatly enhance accuracy and consistency. The EVO 420 is named for its speed—Barnett claims it will fire its 22-inch, small-diameter HyperFlite arrows at 420 fps. This is not a dainty crossbow, though, and all that accuracy added some heft to it: The bare bow weighs in at 11 pounds. It’s sold as a package that includes a cocking device and a TriggerTech trigger. The MSRP is about $1,600.
