I have been reading this section for a while now. I just bought a TAC15 and have some questions.

Why don't they use flatheads where the two main parts bolt together? It seems sloppy to me with the current system.

The older threads use a QAD rest and the new threads have another version. Why doesn't PSE have this as an option already?

Does a scope have to be crossbow rated (much like an airgun with reverse recoil)?

What is better a reticle with aiming points or the HHA wheel?

What bolts are best, PSE or Firenock?

What happened to the quiver that I read about?

What is the difference between it and the Ordnance?

What are the specs?


It seems to have a lot of complaints about it in general but everyone seems to think that it is the best.

I'll take a shot at some of these...

dunno

No. Any good scope will work.

What is better a reticle with aiming points or the HHA wheel?

Close range (0-40) - MilDot. Long range (40-100 yds): HHA.
Until they come out with a rangefinding scope for crossbows, this is the state of the art. Kinda clunky, but it works.


What bolts are best, PSE or Firenock?

I've found the PSE bolts accurate and robust. I've shot 23 through deer and have not broken a single one. That's steller in my book.

What happened to the quiver that I read about?

dunno

What is the difference between it and the Ordnance?

dunno

What are the specs?

425gr arrow at 400 fps (or thereabouts).

Hope that helps some!

Re: New Member, New Owner-TAC 15 Club

I have no accessories. My lower has a two-stage match trigger and 6-position stock for the kiddos and wife. I was thinking a Harris bipod but now you got me thinking about a light for night time predator hunting so I might have to figure out some sort of extension for both.

So do you guys use a seperate quiver?

Yes, I use a seperate 5-arrow quiver.
It clips on a cleat on the stand, but throwing it in the pack works.
