Hi, This is my first crossbow post. Would like to purchase one for next year. Never hunted with any type of bow. I have read a lot of stories of guys having the limbs break on their bows. Since this seems to be a common problem with crossbows, is it dangerous to buy a used bow and loose the warranty?
Thanks in advance for your advice,
SaveYour Money for a new one with a warranty , not too many limbs break with the newer bows , Excallibur and Parker have great Customer Service , I have owned both crossbows so I can't comment on any others . I would advise You to shoot as many as You can before You buy.....Good Luck.
I would probably buy new unless I personally new the person selling or from Arrowhead. Arrowhead usually has some used bows which would save you some money. If you are looking for a crossbow, I would call Arrowhead. He had alot of experience and good prices. He will be able to steer you towards what bows will work the best for your needs and price range.

A local dealer recommended the wicked ridge or the strykezone 380. He said the 380 had a lot of limb problems, but he felt they worked those out. He said the wicked ridge is a great bow with no problems. He said the wicked ridge is about 300 fps and the 380 is 380fps. I read reviews on the 380 and people loved they way they shot, but almost every review mentioned limb problems. Is 300 fps fast enough or should I look for something in the 380+ fps?
