Tough choice. Have you shot them all? If you have and you still can't decide then flip a coin. I don't think you could go wrong with any of them from what I have heard.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: still cant make my mind up help me

Confusing, isn't it. I shopped for a while too and really couln't find anything that I really liked so I settled...and I hate settling. Seems like whatever you choose is obsolete in a year or two anyhow. The crossbow industry is where the compound bow was in the mid/late 90's...evolving every year by leaps and bounds but eventually leveling off in the 2000's.

Re: still cant make my mind up help me

I would get the Stealth XLT. Why? Because I have one and love it.

Seriously, all three are great bows. I like the "extreme limb technology" of the Turbo and Stealth so I favor those over the Titan. I hunt out of treestands alot and the narrow limbs really help with tough angle shots.

The Stealth is just a hair faster than the Turbo, a hair lighter, comes with a really good speed dial scope and just looks way cool. Really depends on if you feel like a few hundred for the above features is worth it to you.

Keep us informed when you decide and get some shooting.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I'd go with one of the XLT's. I shoot a Turbo XLT for deer and turkey and really like the compactness for shooting from either a treestand or a blind.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

I would go with the Stealth over the Turbo. The machined aluminum barrel is worth it to me. There will be less vibration and it's a more solid feel. You really can't go wrong with either of those crossbows though.

I would probably opt for the Wicked Ridge Raider over the Titan.

Re: still cant make my mind up help me

I have an older Stealth (note no XLT)and my nephew a Turbo XLT. He is a smaller frame guy and the Turbo is perfect for him plus was less expensive. Both are great and Tenpoint customer service cannot be beat. Either choice is a winner.
