THE STORY"What If?"
Like many hunters, I wanted to make the most of my time — balancing the field, family, and work. For me, crossbows maximize time in the field, while still honoring the values of ethical hunting and a clean harvest.
I love the satisfaction of overcoming outdoor challenges, but got frustrated when my gear became one of those obstacles. Snags in deep cover, confining tree angles... nothing was worse than wasting valuable field time on expensive maintenance work or factory limb repairs. One string failure led to a limb fracture and I came to realize the ‘modern’ crossbow still relies on medieval battle field technology.
I wrote down what a truly modern crossbow should be and how it could allow me to get more out of my hunt. I took the paper into my garage and began to figure out just how to do it. Six months later, a working prototype was taken to acclaimed designer, Jim Bond, and after a few years of “what if” and “how can we”, we are proud to deliver the world’s first hunting inspired crossbow — the Lancehead F1.
