Vertical Crossbows

A Crossbow like no other

The Mini In-Line Vertical Crossbow is like now other crossbow. Its vertical orientation makes it very balanced and easy to hold for accurate, freehanded shooting experience. Easy and comfortable shooting for the tallest to the shortest shooters making it a “one size fits all”. Though there is an EZ Rope Cocking Device and Crank Options available for drawing, children and women are finding the adjustable poundage is great for customizing the draw weight for hand drawing and shooting different weights. This compact bow (29” long and 17 a-a) is light weight (6 lbs) and is a joy to shoot and pleasure to walk through the woods with. It does have impressive speeds, 325-330’s with a 23 inch, 380 grain Arrow. Disarming the bow is very simple without the need of shooting an arrow or using a special crank. Because the bow is shot “Vertically” the bow can be propped and shot while leaning against a tree, something not possible with other crossbows. There is no press needed for changing strings, cables or other maintenance, and the Vertical Crossbow shoots standard arrows.
