Scorpyd Crossbows

It was the fall of 2003. As Jim Kempf sat in a massive white oak tree in south eastern Iowa, he had no idea of the storm that was about to erupt.  As all crossbow shooters know, speed is in the power stroke.  Shorter brace height bow = longer power stroke. Longer power stroke = faster arrow speed. Faster arrow speed = flatter trajectory. By reversing the riser and limb arrangement and putting the string at the leading edge, Jim essentially eliminated all of the brace height and  maximized the power stroke.  By pulling the string into the curve of the limbs instead of away from the limbs,  power stroke has dramatically increased, and so has performance. Basic crossbow design has been around for over 1000 years, with little change. Yes the industry has evolved with scopes, cams, more reliable triggers, and modern materials, but there was still one constant to achieve maximum performance:  a heavy draw weight.  A heavy draw weight results in a lot of shock and a loud report when firing!
