High performance dual purpose crossbows, as well as being extremely accurate target crossbows with 17" bolts, 8mm ball bearings all the models are equiped to be ball bearing and lead projectile hunting crossbows at up to 420 ft/sec. The ball travels down the rail not a tube making them legal for the UK market. All the Talon crossbow models have custom made strings made from Fastflight with Halo serving which is used on the Stryker, the Worlds most powerful crossbow. This gives each Talon model a bolt speed of at least 200ft/sec and amazing accuracy over 30-50 yards as good as any standard crossbow. Each Talon is assembled by hand, then the custom string is fitted and the crossbow is sighted in at 40 yards with ball bearings. Great care is taken with these crossbows to provide the ultimate shooting experience with bolts, ball bearings and lead projectiles.
With their ability to shoot 8mm ball bearings at speeds of up to 420 feet per second the Talon range make excellent vermin control weapons, pest control weapons and small game hunting crossbows. They produce far more energy than the most powerful air rifles currently available and the 8mm ball is heavier achieving the desired result with a direct hit. Using a standard crossbow for vermin control is expensive as each shot will potentially damage your expensive bolt but ball bearings are very cheap! An 8mm ball bearing is 32 grain which is far heavier than a pellet and causes far more damage on impact. The Talon range offer a far better alternative to rodent control, pest control and vermin control than the fastest most powerful air rifle. With a small amount of practice the shooter will be able to hit objects the size of tin cans at 40 yards.
The lead projectiles are heavier and produce more energy, ideal for slightly bigger vermin and pests. The lead projectiles are 'muzzle loaded' just as you would with an old fashioned rifle
Amazingly the Talon range produce all of this power from a draw weight of only 60lb! This allows even the smallest shooter to cock a Talon by hand, no need for any extra cocking aid. As a target crossbow the Talon range are extremely accurate at distances of 30 - 50 yards providing the shooter with a very realistic test of their shooting ability. The Talon range really is the best both worlds for those shooters that need a dual purpose crossbow.
