For 2 grand it better be nice!
Balance seemed real good. Draw for me would be too long to be able to cock it but if had the crank cocker on it wouldn't be any problem. Bit heavier for me (my Xbow is only 5.5# and like a lighter weight) but the guy it was ordered in for really liked it, held real steady for him. Really liked they put on the forearm depressed button extra safety, think something like that should be standard as really forces you to keep your hand lower to be able to shoot it. Found out Dave got it in as the guy had sounded like he was going to buy it but found out then he just wanted to look at it but he and his buddy both really liked it. Older gentlemen and the one who had wanted it owns 2 Xbows and said he likes his Excalibur over his TenPoint. I never shot it as a helper comes in later to do that, sight it in at 20 yards, but with it already bore sighted from the factory they are usually dead on or within inchs of it. Like normal Excaliburs the recurve limbs are a bit wider but in reality aren't that much more then a compound one. This was the black scheme and looked sharp. Like all Excaliburs is VERY easy to assemble and positive on the "hold together" part of it and alignment of limbs to rail is spot on.
All in all would I buy one? If was an Excalibur fan and had the money probrably would. Still has one of the best warrenties and lowest prolems of them all so that is a good feature like you know.

2 grand were you going to kiss that guy first be for he bought it.  I thought it was like 11 hundred. What the heck with my money problems might as well be 2 grand.

  They are sweet bows you need to shorten the cocking string some. My 14 year old daughter can cock it. Got to shoot one over at the new Cabela's in town. Sweet bow theye sure had a lot of those may pops you like in there.
 Good to see your coming around I was getting worried at your age did not know if it would ever happen.

My bad, the TenPoint put together was 2 grand, the 380 is $1100.00. Dave sold 2 last night to 2 guys that drove down special from Buffalo to buy them. Think it's 3 he's sold in the last week or so.
No not coming around, just wanted to rattle your chain a bit.

Awe come on Jon, you know deep down you really want one       Yup, Excalibuer Envy.
I graduated up to a Big Boy Excalibur not long ago, Equinox, 225lbs of bad bone bow. Still have the Exocet 200 also, cause one is never enough!

I bought mine off craigslist last month about 30 miles from me, paided way less than that, didn't really need it but was just to good a deal to pass on. Same setup only one arrow though.

$650 is about what I'm seeing em for on the excal forum, maybe a little more, two were just listed, $725.00 shipped, $700 pickup in Canada.
