    150 pound asian crossbow prod question

    Post by mcat on Tue Jan 28, 2014 2:09 pm

    Hello all,  I have ordered a 150 pound asian standard black fiberglass prod, (hoping to retrofit a daco hornet to accept this prod)  was wondering

    if anyone had specs for

    1) proper brace height

    2)  what approx poundage would one expect from  11,10, 9, 8 and 7 inch power strokes (once that the brace height is set)

    I wanted to shorten the stock to make a lower poundage crossbow for my son, say 100 lbs.
    and wanted a approx powerstroke to get to that point.

    thanks all so  much

    Hi Mcat, I usually brace mine at about 3 1/4". If brace too low they get noisier. The poundage varies on these from 120 pounds to 150 pound even though they are called 150 pound prods although the last few have been close to 150. If a 150 pound prod it should be approximately 15 pounds per inch of draw. To reach 100 pounds the draw should be a little over 6 1/2" plus another 3 1/4" for brace to get a total of a little over 9 3/4" total draw length (from where the prod is mounted to where the string is held for release).
