Crossbow Prods



Our crossbow prods now come with a six inch length of heat shrink tubing serving as a safety strap "sichern". These extend form the center of the prod outward, three inches on both sides. Safety straps are intended to reduce the chance of the shooter or a bystander being injured by a broken limb. Breakage, if it occurs, is nearly always confined to the area of maximum stress, from the center of the prod, to an inch or so beyond the point where the prod presses against the stock. This tubing should not be removed, since to do so creates a danger of injury to the user. If necessary, the safety strap may be covered with leather or some similar flexible material.


The below listed items are made of high carbon spring steel which has been precisely hardened and tempered for optimal strength and durability. These are available in mill black or plain steel finish. Prods are shipped black and treated to resist rust unless otherwise requested. All models are available in a range of draw weights. When ordering, please specify the approximate weight desired and we shall match your request as closely as possible. Most of our models are designed for a recommended draw of 8 inches from a 3 1/2 inch brace. In other words, allow 11 1/2 inches from the mounted prod to the fingers of the release. These prods with model numbers beginning in 1, 2, or 3 use a 27 inch Dacron B50 string. The exceptions are models beginning with the numbers 6 or 7. Model 6 prods are designed for a recommended draw of 9 3/4 inches from a 5 inch brace. This equals a total distance of 14 3/4 inches from the center of the belly of the prod to the fingers of the release. Model 6 prods work fine as a replacement for the original aluminum prods on old Powermaster crossbows and require a 31 inch Dacron B50 string. Model 7 prods are designed for a recommended draw of 9 1/2 inches from a 4 inch brace. This equals a total distance of 13 1/2 inches from the center of the belly of the prod to the fingers of the release. Model 7 prods work fine as replacements for many Barnett crossbows such as the Commando or Wildcat and the many Asian copies of the Wildcat. Model 7 prods require a 29 3/4 inch string. Regardless of model a greater draw length than recommended should be avoided since this may lead to premature breakage of the part.
