I got one last month for $280.00 to my door.It is quiet,fast and looks to be well built.Like most low price crossbow packages the scope is less then desirable.That being said,I really like it for my wife or kids to join me on the hunt and it is a great back up to my Horton Havoc 175.I have only put about 20 shots through it with a 2x7 truglow scope I put on it and it is very accurate.Only time will tell about its reliability but with the PSE warranty you cant go wrong! jeff

Most buyers are getting an avg 330 fps out of the fang, so don't take the advertised speed as gospel.

i didnt chrony mine yet but will. Bought it for messing around at the house. G-Hogs, etc. Scope is not the greatest but functional.The arrows and quiver that come with it are total junk.
Works and shoots great, cant beat it for the $

I have just over 800 shots on one. Still shooting 342 f.p.s. and shows little sign of serving wear. Decent trigger and low noise signature. Factory scope is total junk, so factor that into the price. I've been selling mine with the Hawke scope installed. Add the Ten Point side quiver bracket, or Bohning top mount to get the quiver where it belongs. I turn the foregrip around so it fits me better, I also add a Folding T- handle and remove the rubber buttpad. Best buy for a crossbow under $500 in my opinion. You get a lot of value for the money spent.

Not really a lifetime warranty on it as posted above. Limbs are full warranty for first year. Half price after that.

I build a custom arrow for it that really gets the most out of it.

arrowhead, what do you sell them for, with the Hawke scope and the custom arrow?

I'm currently shooting a Horton XL150 (I believe). It shoots well, but I worry that if anything goes on it, it's done...

A few years ago, I bought PSE cheaply built VIPER model for a very fair price. Although no speed demon by current standards, it shot accurately and functioned OK. Just because price is low does not mean the crossbow is poorly designed or constructed. PSE is a keeper!
