A crossbow is an improved bow and arrow system that is much more accurate than its older counterpart. The device consists of a bow that is mounted on a cylinder head. When the lever attached to the stock is released, the arrow will fire. A crossbow can be easily operated and is a perfect weapon for those who do not have the muscular strength to effectively pull the classic bow. They are used for shooting sports in modern archery, hunting, and the collection of tissue samples from marine animals, as they can shoot up to 370 meters. Crossbows are designed and produced in a variety of different styles to suit the needs of individual shooters and scientists. Some modern crossbow models include Barnett Ghost 410, Excalibur Matrix 355, Excalibur Matrix 380 Xtra, Scorpyd Ventilator, PSE TAC Elite, Tenpoint Tactical XLT, Mission Archery MXB-360, Parker Stingray, Stryker Strykezone 380, TenPoint Vapor, Arrow Precision Firestorm, Pro V22 crossbow shaft, bow system with Parallel Limb technology, Barnett Vengeance and Carbon Express X-Force 350.
Although all the crossbows mentioned above exhibit unique characteristics and make for the most impressive wonders in the industry for this year, in my opinion the best crossbow for 2013 is the Excalibur Matrix 380 Xtra. It makes the best model due to the following reasons:
1) It is the first compact re-curve crossbow, which has an Ergo grip stock that provides better balance.
2) Its geometry has been improved by manufacturers, which means that its efficiency increases due to reduced friction and increased speed. 3) Compared to previous models, it has lost one pound in weight and six inches in width. In addition, it has been best crossbow cut four inches long, thus providing better balance and precision due to its smaller size.
4) The 112 foot-pounds of kinetic energy and 370 fps speed increase its effectiveness even further.
5) Sophisticated design features such as a pistol grip, thumb hole, soft rubber grip, and finger guards on the front, make it very easy to carry. Additionally, it is equipped with a Diablo four-bolt four-bolt quiver with 150-grain field dots, and is offered in Realtree Xtra camo with a padded shoulder sling and rope cocking device. 6) The crossbow has a unique mechanism that prevents it from firing if shot without a bolt in place. The self-contained G.A.D.F.S (Guardian Anti Dry Fire System) housed in the visor holder traps the rope, thus preventing accidental firing of the device.
