Excalibur Vixen II Features

The Excalibur Vixen II comes equipped with a Vari-Zone multi-range scope, which is a scope that is specifically designed to work perfectly with the Vixen II. Coming in at 2-4 x 32mm, this scope provides an optimal amount in zoom.

Aside from the scope, the Vixen II also comes with 4 pieces of Firebolt carbon arrows that are not only great for target practice but actually ready to be used for the hunt as well. It has a standard-type, 4-arrow quiver as well as a high-quality polymer quiver that attaches to the side of the crossbow for quick and easy access to the arrows.

It comes with 20-inch carbon arrows that weigh no more than 325 grams. While you can use heavier arrows, if that is what you prefer, you should not try the Vixen II crossbows with lighter ones. This is because this crossbow is not really made for arrows that are smaller than 20 inches.

  • Item Weight: 5 Kg
  • Product Dimensions: 94 x 25.4 x 14.6 cm
  • Height: 5.75 inches
  • Length: 37 inches
  • Weight: 5.4 kilograms
  • Width10 inches

Safety and Design

When using any kind of device that is capable of killing, safety is very important. The same is true when using a crossbow. Fortunately, the Vixen II was wisely designed in that it comes in a pretty solid build. It also only engage when it should and disengage with ease.

The trigger pull is very nice with just a bit of play. For extra precaution and to ensure that there are no accidental dry fires, you can choose to invest in a Guardian Anti-Dry Fire Accessory. In this way, you can guarantee that the Vixen II won’t cause any problems when it comes to safety.

Performance Overview

While it doesn’t quite pack the punch of large crossbows, the Excalibur Vixen II is also a great crossbow in its own right. At a draw weight of 150 pounds, the Excalibur Vixen II delivers arrow speeds of up to 285 feet per second. As such, this crossbow is great for hunting elk, antelope, and deer.

Pros:

  • Generates enough speed to take down your target
  • Good hunting crossbow for small hunters
  • Available in pink and camouflage design

Cons:

  • Does not come with applied anti-dry fire mechanism
  • Does not come with illuminated reticles

Conclusion

The Excalibur Vixen II Crossbow isn’t the most powerful one on the market, but it gets the job done. It is made specifically to fulfill a smaller framed hunter. Its quick and light draw helps to reduce the length of pull, making it the perfect choice for hunters of smaller stature such as the ladies and youth.
