You might want to look at Wicked Ridge. They are made by Ten Point and in the $450 price range. I have one and I love it.

My advice is to go to a bow shop and look/shoot a few. Pick out the one you want and save $100 by ordering it on line.

I would go with the Excalibur Axiom SMF complete with scope/bolts & quiver from Black Bear Sporting Goods. Crossbow kit plus S & H is around $444.
DOn't settle. Get something that shoots great and lasts a lifetime.

I do this too, but it's really a slap in the face to local business owners to take up their time and buy elsewhere. My solution is to get touchy feely with equipment only in larger chain stores when possible. I also give them a chance to get close in price. I'll pay a bit more to support them. Sorta like buying American even if it's higher.

I just bought a Wicked Ridge, took it to the range, made 1 windage correction in the scope, and was stacking them in a quarter size x at 25 yds. Can't believe the accuracy.

I like Excalibur. I can carry a spare string and change it out if needed. Total down time about 90 seconds.
