Re: hype on speed.
I am in the speed is overrated and over hyped camp when it comes to crossbows. I prefer mine in the 320-350 range.
Once we start to get higher than that, alot of stress to imparted on the bow itself and accuracy can begin to suffer.
I am also somewhat concerned that the emphasis on speed as the potential to hurt our sport moving forward with many states yet to go that do not allow crossbows in archery. Archery was and still is a close range sport. We all should never lose sight of that.
I would much prefer that the manufacturers focus on better triggers, reliability, weight, compactness and safety.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
