as you can see I ruined some good reels ,arrows,spools in the past couple weeks trying to get this crossbow shooting the way I want. Murphy was not much help!!!! I had to make my own spool because the factory one all the line would fly off when I shot , settleled on 22 inch fiberglass arrows like wheelie advised an work best after breaking my homemade aluminum stuffed with carbons. make my own slide stops now after breaking many of the factory ones. don,t care for the AMS retrievers I like the old spool. It,s been a hoot fooling with this thing but got er done!

Get you a spin cast reel Shakespeare makes one or a Zebco 808 or 888 with 200# fast flight. Get you a reel seat.

Looks good. I like it! :thumbsu: Nice job on the home made spool.

Your homemade spool would look good on my 1972 crossbow with modern limbs and homemade arrows. LOL

Getting one of Dons triggers for my good crossbow and install my extra trigger in this one.

I turned it that way because all the line would fly off when I shot the other way . I done gave up on my crossbow an pontoon for bowfishing. sometimes you have the best rig an don,t know it till you try new things . I learned that my recurve an my flatbottom are second to none for my bowfishing an made me appreciate them that much more.

Thought cross bows would be cool for bowfishing but thought that with all that draw wt. you'd be shooting clear through most fish and have to untie the line every time or push the arrow back through the fish. I saw a crossbow rig with a 35lb. pistol rig that looked like the cats pajamas. Had an AMS reel mounted below the limbs.
