Well last Sunday my wife and I went to Gander Mountian and I got to shoot a number of different crossbows. I tried a ten point , nice heavy and a bit loud. Didnt like the non lighted scope and would have had to change it and try to sell the regular one. Next came a Barnett even though the salesperson was trying to steer me from them due to issues that they have been seeing. It was ok. Third I shot a Parker again the sales person gave me some insight to a few things they had heard about not making them any longer. Lastly I shot a Horton Vision, wow balanced nice, the reverse limbs looks cool shoots quieter then the others. Loved the package as far as the 4x32 lighted scope. All of them were around the same price within 75.00 so it wasnt to bad, wife broke out the credit application and got herself a gander card saved an additional 10% and has a year to pay off my birthday and christmas gift. Now I just wish I had something to shoot. Might just buy a MD License so I can go try it out. But looking forward to selling my other bow and getting a case and some extra bolts.
But I do have a question for you all... Have you found that fixed or mechanical heads work best or is it a trial and error like a regular bow. What i mean is bow a , vs bow b vs bow c when it come to matching bolts and broadheads to your crossbow.
As of now I ended up with some graphite bolts and fixed broadheads think they are F15's ? Shot thur the cronograph and ended up at 323 with 301 bolt weight plus 100 grain tip.
