Hey everybody. My friend is looking to buy a crossbow for this upcoming archery season so we can hunt together. His price range is 500$ or under. He is looking for one that is fast. He doesn't really care about the weight though. What do you guys recommend ?
His price range is 500$ or under. He is looking for one that is fast.
Personally, my experience is $500 can buy you a great crossbow. Now, if you want a fast crossbow(over 330fps) then I would advise against buying one less than $500. Cheaper components and speed can lead to premature failure, vibration, noise and or accuracy problems.
Nothing wrong with a crossbow that shoots between 300-320 fps. That is my preferred range. For $500, look at the Wicked Ridge Invader or left over Horton Visions that can be had for a hair above $500.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
Thanks for the input guys. But after he seen a picture of the ghost 400 made by Barnett he was caught. He just decided to save another 500 for it. I tried convincing him into arrowheads great deal with the havoc but he insisted on saving up for the Ghost 400.
If the spending limit is now around $999 I would ask him to research a little into the Athen Apocolypse. It's a bow to watch and production will soon begin. It's reported to retail for under $1000. This will be one that is well worth a look!
