Re: TAC Elite and Ordnance Crossbow Review

PSE had a production problem with the cases. They didn't want to delay the crossbows anymore than they already were.

The most recent estimate is early October for the cases. Your dealer will contact you to get you your case when they arrive.

Re: TAC Elite and Ordnance Crossbow Review

I got mine last week and it didn't have a case either. I have no idea how they are supposed to know who has the bows. I hope the place I bought it is keeping up with it. I also had to order the QAD rest. After the just four shots thru the whisker biskit the fletchings were distorted. I'm sitting here going crazy a full week into the season and I haven't been out yet and doesn't look like I will have this bow tuned till next week. At least my plots are coming up nice with no pressure.

I also am curious about the posts that talk about how quiet these bows are. Quiet is the last word I would use to describe the bow. Sounds like any other crossbow I have heard. I have the limbsaver installed as well. I padded my trigger and I would say that it was minutely more quiet but nothing like what some posts have said.

It is crazy powerful though. Put a field point all the way thru my yellow bag target at 20 yards.

Re: TAC Elite and Ordnance Crossbow Review

Greetings!

Just seen some well known Chinese web sites selling TAC 15 bolts. They look raw (just plain carbon), advertised as +/- 0.003 straightness, and come along with a good price. Anyone been able to test those? Would they fit the application? Cheers.

Re: TAC Elite and Ordnance Crossbow Review

I had someone call to buy some PSE arrows for their TAC a couple weeks ago. He had just bought some less expensive arrows off Ebay or Amazon and the first one he shot failed. I believe he said the nock shoved into the shaft and the shaft fell apart.

Re: TAC Elite and Ordnance Crossbow Review

Thank you for the details.

Also, the PSE dealer in the area have said that PSE discontinued the TAC 15 Elite series (Ordnance still available though), because there were problems. Is that valid information? Are there any official statements regarding this? Will there be an upgraded version in the future? Cheers.

You can still purchase from the PSE website, but I guess they could be just selling the remaining bows.....good question. ...I hope they are still going to offer parts if they stop making the bow....
