    Have you used a crancking device to lighten the draw on your 150# beast? If so, How much did you pay for it and where could I get one?
    I'm a cross bow rookie, just bought a Barnett Quad 400 and so far still in the process of sighting it in.
    Any coment will be appreciated.

    Barnett makes a cranker that is made to be used on their crossbows. Check on their website for more info.

    This is not a "crank" type device but a rope & pulley set up and it will lower your pull weight to an easy 75#.

    It is faster and cheap. But you will need a place at the back to hook the rope to.
