Some people are looking for speed, some people are looking for a lightweight crossbow, while others make their distinction based on other criteria. If you are in the market for a great recurve crossbow that is designed for comfort, then the Excalibur Micro 315 is worth taking a look at. [caption id="attachment_5968" align="alignright" width="250"]Excalibur Micro 315 Excalibur Micro 315[/caption] The Excalibur Micro 315 is the newest in the Micro lineup from the company. The company's goal was to create a lineup of crossbows that were more maneuverable and compact than traditional recurve crossbows. They achieved this by creating new limb technology and skeletonizing the stock. You get just that with the Micro 315. All of the Micro series crossbows are similar, but the 315 stands out in its own way. First, the Excalibur Micro 315 is the most affordable of the Micro lineup ringing in at $799.99. Although the 315 feet per second arrow flight of this crossbow is the slowest of the Micro lineup, it still can get the job done while hunting, especially at close ranges. If you are looking for a capable crossbow at a reasonable price, then the 315 should pop up on your radar. As its name would suggest, the Excalibur Micro 315 is designed to be compact. This recurve crossbow measures in at 21 inches tip to tip when cocked, which is pretty darn reasonable for a recurve. Also, weighing in at a scant 5.2 pounds, this crossbow might be the right choice for a hunter who walks a lot, or a spot and stalk specialist. In addition to its light weight and small frame, the Micro 315 also takes a smaller draw weight than others in the series. The Excalibur Micro 315 requires 260 pounds to cock the string, rather than the 280 of faster models. Like all of the Micro series, the 315 comes standard with the dependable Guardian anti-dry fire system from Excalibur. This bow also comes standard with a quality scope mounted, in this case the 315 comes with a Dead-Zone scope. Herein lies another major difference between the Excalibur Micro 315 and the Micro 355. The Dead-Zone scope on the 315 is an adjustable scope, but is not lighted like the Tact-Zone scope on the 355. In the end if you are looking for the quality and dependability that comes standard on all Excalibur crossbows, but can't necessarily drop $1,000 on a crossbow, take a hard look at the Excalibur Micro 315. This lightweight, capable, and compact recurve crossbow will definitely be a hit in a few households this year. NEXT: NEW CROSSBOWS OF 2016: TENPOINT TITAN SS
