THE LONG-RANGE CROSS­BOW

Maxim - - ABSOLUTE POWER -

Talk about overkill: Fir­ing bolts at speeds up­wards of 425 feet per sec­ond, the Scor­pyd Ve­loc­ity Cross­bow (165#

draw) is pow­er­ful enough to take down a 12-point buck from 200 yards. It’s all thanks to the weapon’s mas­sive 20.5inch pull-back dis­tance (most are set at 10 to 14 inches) and pro­pri­etary Re­verse Draw tech­nol­ogy, the lat­ter of which not only in­creases power but also ups ac­cu­racy and bal­ances the cross­bow’s weight. Only the strong (and slightly psy­chotic) need ap­ply: Cock­ing this zom­bie-killer is akin to pulling 165 pounds.
