Carbon Express x bows?

Just wondering if anyone has dealt with these bows? Reviews? Can't find to much info on them.

Made by Darton. I have never handled or shot one of their bows. If their warranty is the same as Dartons, 10 years on limbs and cams and lifetime on stock and riser. Original owner only.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I shot one a while back. It shot great. It appears to be very similar to the Parker Tornado as far as the limb system and overall feel of the bow. It is heavier than the Parker, and is louder at the shot. It has about the same speed, but uses 200 lb. limbs instead of the Parkers 165 and I suspect that is where the additional noise and weight comes from. The crank cocking device is very user friendly on the CE. The foldable foregrip folds nicely into the front stock. I wouldn't trade my Tornado for it though.

Re: Carbon Express x bows?

Thanks for your replies I have recently torn up my shoulder and I"m trying to salvage my archery season but limited on funds had found the CX 300 dlx package for $200 but was a little unsure of the quality, "you get what you pay for"

OK, the CX DX-300 is a different bow than what I commented about above. I was thinking the XB model.

The DX-300 model is a decent bow for $200. If it is a new bow, you will do good on it for that price. It is an entry level crossbow but they shoot well and at that price you can't go wrong. IMHO

Last season they were sold under Eastman Outfitters X Force 300. The reviews you are looking for are under that name.
