Can you put the switchblade bridle stright on the crossbow?

Theres no doubt the switch has a way lighter feel mainly due to the extra pulley :thumb:

No, they're different lengths...remember the Switchblade has a different curve to it.

Engagement is similiar to the Recon powerlock: pull the bar down to engage. To disengage, just twist your wrists with downward pressure. So really it is no different to earlier Cabrinha powerlocks.

Handy also, by flipping your centre line/chicken loop over 180deg, their is no accidental engagement. Cost for me was ca. 50AUD.

Got mine from http://www.oceanextremesports.com/ . They had the best price (incl. shipping) that I could find.
