A crossbow of 150 pounds or more is difficult for most hunters to cock by hand. At Crossbowdeals.com we recommend using a crossbow cocking device whenever possible. A cocking device will cock the crossbow the same each time which allows for better consistency.
Rope cocking devices will reduce the effort to cock a crossbow by one-half. Most crossbow crank cocking devices reduce the effort down to 16 lbs or less, which will come in handy when sighting in or target shooting.
