About Scorpyd Crossbows

Scorpyd (Pronounced Score-Pid) Crossbows and Reverse Draw Technology are both creations of Crossbow innovator Jim Kempf. The technology that Jim Kempf created has now lead Scorpyd Crossbows to be one of the most effective hunting tools to date.

Reverse Draw Technology Started Here

Scorpyd Crossbow Owner Jim KempfIt was the fall of 2003. As Jim Kempf sat in a massive white oak tree in southeastern Iowa, he had no idea of the storm that was about to erupt.  As he waited for that buck of a lifetime, his mind began to wonder as it had so many times before… “what’s for dinner”… “should I be in a different stand”…”I wish I hadn’t drank all that water”… ” how could I make a better, quieter crossbow”.  Then like a bolt of lightning,  he was struck by the idea that would revolutionize the hunting world, and reverse draw technology was born.

As all hunters know, speed is in the stroke.  Shorter brace height bow = longer power stroke. Longer power stroke = faster arrow speed. Faster arrow speed = flatter trajectory. By reversing the riser and limb arrangement and putting the string at the leading edge,  Jim essentially eliminated all of the brace height and  maximized the power stroke.  By pulling the string into the curve of the limbs instead of away from the limbs,  power stroke has dramatically increased, and so has performance.

History of Scorpyd Crossbows

Reverse Draw Hunting Crossbow TechnologyBasic crossbow design has been around for over 1000 years, with little change. Yes the industry has evolved with scopes, cams, more reliable triggers, and modern materials, but there was still one constant to achieve maximum performance:  a heavy draw weight.  A heavy draw weight results in a lot of shock and a loud report when firing!  For more information, please visit our Reverse Draw Technology page.
