The ACUrope is the revolutionary portable retractable rope-cocker. The ACUrope reduces the effort to cock your crossbow by 50% like traditional rope-cockers on the market but that is where the comparison ends. When the shooter is finished cocking the bow the ACUrope's draw cord completely retracts inside one of the two grips. Then the grips dovetail neatly together to form a compact unit that the hunter can conveniently slip inside a belt-mounted holster or pouch. The unit's slender draw cords pound-for-pound 15-times stronger than steel are made of heat and abrasion resistant SPECTRA® fiber. A pair of heavy-duty constant-force springs packed neatly inside the retracting grip power the spool which is mounted on a durable steel axle and frame. The grips are made from DuPont™ Zytel® Super Tough Nylon.
Very simple to use and reduces the pull back weight by a lot. This is well worth the money when compared to the basic rope pull back strings from the box stores. My only criticism is that there is no good place to store them while in the tree because of how bulky they are when in the case. I like to keep them in a place that is easy access for a second shot IF needed, but they're too bulky to put in a jacket pocket. I had to modify mine with a clip so that i could hang it from my shooting rail. The case does use a magnet flap that makes little to no noise to open and close. All and all it is worth the money so buy it
Carry my ACUrope w/Case every time I am hunting or at the range. Don't want to be caught unprepared if I have a problem with my regular cocking device. Also, I have loaned the ACUrope to friends in need.
I bought a Ten Point crossbow with a crank. It works great for cocking my crossbow before heading to my stand on those cold mornings when my arthritis is acting up (So far it has been a rare occurrence. However, the crank is too slow and too noisy to use in the field. So, I bought the ACUrope.
Cocking the crossbow with the ACUrope is easier than I thought. I can cock my crossbow a dozen times during practice without tiring. It is quiet and quick enough to use in the field. It’s light and does not take much space in my pack. I have used it hundreds of times and it does not show any wear or tear.
I like the crank as a backup device. But as long as my arthritis does not get worse, the ACUrope is my go to cocking device.
