Tom Gaylord On The Nitro Piston 2 January 24, 2014 Featured Twitter0Facebook0LinkedIn0 Tom Gaylord stopped by the booth to see the full lineup of new products and we had a chance to ask him about his experience shooting the brand new Benjamin Trail with Nitro Piston 2 and Clean Break Trigger. 3 Responses James Coopar January 31, 2014 I am 71 years old and am interested in how much cocking effort is required on the Benjamin Trail NP2 Hardwood. Please advise me at your convenience. Thanks chunnicutt February 10, 2014 Around 28 pounds. Bill May 23, 2014 I am 70 also. Two weeks ago I received the Benjamin Trail NP 1100. The cocking force is tremendous. I have good upper body strength and my left arm got very sore, so I have to cock it right handed. Cannot keep scope stable. I am returning it and I should receive the new NP2 by Monday. I surely hope it’s better with cocking force and vibration.
