Good points, Alan! I do have a 175 lb recurve crossbow, and I can usually manage to cock that without an aid. That being said, perhaps a ratcheting lock or a longer cocking arm, to gain leverage? I wonder if there is an established equation for cocking weight based upon cylinder size and length of cocking lever. Where did I put that algebra cheatsheet… Although, that also raises the question of the trigger mechanism. I imagine it would have to reinforced to withstand the vibrations of firing, and I am curious if that level of restrained power would equate to an extremely heavy trigger pull. Hmmm…
