Re: whats the difference
Some of the manufacturers that have a high speed rating are using a 370 grain arrow to get that speed rating. Most hunting arrows are at or near 425 grains. I wish they all had a standard that they would have to follow, so the consumer could compare apples to apples.
That being said, Barnett has made great strides in customer service in the last year. I wouldn't be afraid of thier products at the moment. They have a good customer service record as of right now.
New bows coming from all the major players. Look at the new Parker, Wicked Ridge and a few others. There will be some surprises for the 2012 model year. I'm not allowed to discuss all that I know, or I would.
A relatively new player is Maximus. They are bringing some very interesting crossbows to the market this year as well. They are going to be worth a look. The Ergo is only 34 inches long and well balanced. The ISO is another.
