Does any one else have a fever xbow or now any thing about them I bought one and it came with 16" bolts it was shooting all over the place. I went and got some 20" bolts and that helped a lot but still not as good as I would like any ideas on what else to try?

I thought about picking one of those up but went with a Barnett.

Are you using a scope? Good rest when practicing? Rope cocker?

All of those will contribute to better accuracy. Most crossbows will shoot very well when using the right combo of things.

I'd also try 125 gr points/heads if you're not already. You may lose some speed (not much) but the heavier heads will help with your front of center balance on your arrow.

read your owners manual it is very important do everything consistently the string when you cock IT marked my string so that i can make sure it is in the same place in th bow each time it is cocked th atcould make the string push the arrow off each shot. have you checked the arrow foc= front of center? it is the balance of the arrow. be sure you are around 18%. goggle front of center it will tell you how do check it and fix it if need be.
