Any Mission Crossbow Shooters?

I've been considering replacing my vertical bow with a crossbow, and have been trying to gather as much info as I can. I'm narrowing down my choices. I've been looking at:

Horton Storm RDX (I've been waiting for weeks for them to hit the shops. Surprisingly, I didn't like it that much. IMO, Heavy, very noisy, not as compact as I'd like with the over-sized cams, not impressed with the optics that cane with the package.) I think I'm ruling it out.

Ten Point Stealth FX4 (Liked it. Still need to try and cock it with the AccuDraw 50 cocking aid. Seemed a bit heavy.)

Mission MXB-360 (Liked it. Very light, quiet, easy to cock, but I don't know much about Mission crossbows.) Seemed reasonably priced.

Any Mission crossbow shooters out there who can share some thoughts with me?

Re: Any Mission Crossbow Shooters?

Mission is the best hunting crossbow out there in my opinion. I have a 320. It is very compact, you can change the strings and cables without a press and it is very easy to cock. But If you need a cocking aid they have the best one on the market. If I was to buy another mission it would be the dagger or sniper. I like compact and lite But you cant beat the price of a 320.

I love my Dagger. Very accurate, compact and lite. The AR style carries very well while still hunting(an important factor for me). The removable cocking aid is great. Killed a 140" 8 point with it last season and I just missed a gobbler with it last Monday. Going out tomorrow for redemption. You would be very satisfied with this choice.

Still waiting to hear back from you. If I don't hear back soon, I'm going to make a decision and buy elsewhere.

Re: Any Mission Crossbow Shooters?

Well... I finally made a decision. I bought a Mission MXB-360 with the XB-Pro scope upgrade. I shot the 360 and based on the recommendations of you guys, I shot the Dagger as well. WOW. I liked both nearly equally as well. The draw weight on the Dagger is much higher (220 pounds vs. 160 pounds for the 360) but the power stroke is much shorter (10 inches vs. 14 inches for the 360.) I was able to cock both easily with the rope cocking aid. I kept alternating between shooting each, and at the end of the day, it came down to the 360 shooting better for me. It just seemed to balance just that little bit better for me. Either would be a great choice. Thanks to all for all of your input. The scope package will need to be ordered, so I'll not get it for a couple of weeks. I can hardly wait!!!!!
