Cabelas Crossbow sale

The Cabelas flyer that came in the mail today has a sale on crossbows. I'm thinking of using up some points and getting one.

A few questions for you guys who already use one. I'm looking at the Tenpoint Titan, is the ACUdraw worth $200? I think the Horton Vision 175 is intriguing with the string in the front, is it just a novelty or does it really work well?

I also seen the Barnett Wildcat on sale pretty cheap $379 for the package.

I just shot and bought a Horton vision 175 and IMO this is the way to go.The limbs are under 10 inches when cocked and the thing is accurate and whisper quiet.

For me, Parker enforcer is great, Lifetime warranty. Shot a nice 8 pt piebald last year, went 20 feet and fell.

Best to shoot them all then pick.

Good luck. Stan

Titan is a nice bow from a great company. The Acudraw is the best crank in the business, IMO. It is expensive though. I prefer TenPoints Acudraw50 which is a rope cocker self contained in the buttstock.

It really works because the reverse limbs make the Vision the best balancing bow in the industry. Also, with a cocked width of under a foot, one of the most compact. The Vision is also the quietest crossbow I have shot.


I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Longbeard Lou offers sound advise with his suggestion to involve Arrowhead in your final decision on choice and purchase.

Re: Cabelas Crossbow sale

My son and I went to Cabela's in Hamburg last Sunday because he has decided to go the crossbow route this season, and wants to try a couple of models. To receive customer attention, it was necessary to take a number. Over thirty numbers had been removed from the counter, and they were servicing #6 when we were there mid-afternoon!

Along with quite a few other shoppers, he was able only to check the fit of various bows, but not shoot any. He is going to drive up some evening after work in hopes of getting some help and getting an opportunity to shoot a couple of bows.

Then, he will be contacting Arrowhead.

Re: Cabelas Crossbow sale

I went to Cabela's to buy a holster when I was at the Pa Trappers conv., got 1 of those #'s never got close to getting waited on, just wanted to put the pistol in the case in the holster I picked out, maybe a 30 second deal. I will never go back to Cabela's. I will give my money to Bass Pro.

Re: Cabelas Crossbow sale

Sounds like Arrowhead is the man for crossbow deals, only problem is I had planned on using some Cabela points to purchase.....

I'm going to try heading to Wheeling tomorrow and checking out a couple.

Thanks for all the replies.
