Holy cow! This looks like the perfect toy for us obsessed shooters who are anal about accuracy and consistency! I must have me one of these!

Billy, your right, all of us who enjoy tweaking their equipment to get the best performance will want one. They will be doing live demo's this week at the ATA trade show in Indianapolis.

Re: TAC 15 Crossbow Downrange Velocity - Chronographed?

What kind of arrow flight are we talking about out to 100 yards? Is it a large rainbowing shot or what?

Re: TAC 15 Crossbow Downrange Velocity - Chronographed?

In roughly approximate terms:

100 inches of drop from 20 yards out to 100 yards. Group sizes of 2 to 3 inches.

Complete pass-through of arrows on deer in the heart-lung area at 100 yards.

Re: TAC 15 Crossbow Downrange Velocity - Chronographed?

I was able to see the Velocitp while at the ATA show. It was pretty cool, but did have a few "downfalls" at least to me.

It is an analog system, so the circuit board is not upgradeable. You get what you get. You cannot program it beyond what the factory puts in.

It is not cheap. I can see a manufacturer getting one to do some serious testing, but the average guy is probably not going to be able to afford one.

It only comes with one tip. That's a lot of trips down range unless you buy another tip, which is very expensive.

There were a few other limitations that I took note of at the show but cannot remember right now.

On the up side, it was well-built and I feel that if you ever had any trouble, the company would take care of you.

It does deliver data you can't get any other way.

And is much safer than trying to shoot over your chrono at long distances.

Excellent information! It's too bad a fellow on a budget won't be able to afford one of these for a few years. This is exactly what archers have been looking for for years. No more guessing or reliance upon someone else's datum.
