Did a lot of research on crossbows and did not want to spend $1000, I must say I shot this thing about 30 times and I is dead on at 60yds, I have been waiting for the weather to get colder so I can try it out on a deer. Just make sure you wax your strings every 15 shots to get the most life!! Went together in about an hour, took me 3 shots to get it sighted in...super freaky fast!! I bought a Plano Manta hard case to protect my investment..it was the only hard case that would fit, since the scope sits so high. I would put this up to a Barnette or a Big Ten or Wicked Ridge anytime!! Get one today!! Well worth it!!

Just got my CX-2 today and assembled it, took it out and shot a dozen bolts at a High Density foam target rated for up to 400 FPS and 200 lbs. The bow put every bolt through the foam target 24" thick and a 2 x 4 wall of my storage shed, made of 3/4" ply and T-111 siding. This thing was right on and scary fast. I couldn't distinguish between the sound of the bow shooting and the bolt hitting the target from 60 yards. Great grouping and just plain amazing. The only problems were with assembly. I had to shorten two small bolts and the quiver would only set up one way, it won't set crosswise on the bow. I have plans to machine a new rail mount for the quiver. I studied crossbows for almost a year and a half to get a bow that I felt was worth my investment, which had to be under $1,000.00, I paid $569.00 so I am happy about that. I have read all types of reviews and I can only say that I will recommend this bow to everyone. By the way I use the rope cocker and I was pretty amazed at the ease of cocking the bow.

I received the crossbow 2012 Model in April 2013. I found chipping of the camo wrapping on various parts of the crossbow as well as the arrows. Not a big deal as i can always duracoat it. During assembly i followed the manual precisely as I wanted this awesome looking crossbow to work flawlessly. I bolted the bow portion to the body of the crossbow. I applied the wax and attached the scope and front grip. It took nearly two months to actually find a place i could safely sight in the scope and shoot the crossbow. Before firing i applied a slight bend to one of the arrows to ensure that it was usable and would not blow up in my face with this much power. With slight pressure i heard cracking. I tried another arrow and same thing. Finally the third arrow bent without sound and i felt comfortable with shooting it. So after much delay i was ready to shoot the crossbow for the first time. I used the cocking winch that i purchased separately. That was extremely loud and i after the first shot i switched to the included rope cocking device and was alot easier than i expected even for a 200lb. Draw weight. Now after the first shot of the crossbow i noticed that there was some fraying of one of the split cables running between the cams. I disassembled the crossbow and applied more wax to the cables and ran my finger along the rail to see if there was any burs that i couldnt visibly see that might be catching. There was nothing. After reassembling and verifying that all instructions were followed i tried shooting again. The same fraying occurred no strands were separated but the cable was starting to look fluffy. The scope was dead on at 40 yards but even after 72 clicks up(not exaggerating) the shots never rose. By the 6th shot the first strand was fully cut and was dangling from the main power cable. I immediately packed up and left before i caused more damage to the crossbow or myself. I have since wrote an email to the manufacturer for suggestions on how to resolve this. I have yet to receive a response and i just started the process to see if the seller will accept a return. Looking at their return policy it seems doubtful. I hope this review helps someone or at least ensures that they test it out as soon as they set it up and get all issues resolved before the return timeframe runs out.

Very disappointed with this bow. Though it would shoot better. Bolt drops 16" from 20 to 40 yards. None of the screws and bolts will stay tight. Every 10 to 15 shots have to tighten them. Tried everything even red lock tight.
Nothing I try seems to work. Would never buy another one.

Best customer support on the planet. If you have a problem send it in and a new one is sent NO QUESTIONS ASKED!! I've owned over a dozen crossbows and am a pure crossbow enthusiast!! This is the best crossbow on the market!! I've shot mine over 200 times. Same string and cables. Not a single fray or loose bolt. I use string wax and rail lube liberally. I suggest rail lube directly on your bolts as well!! It makes it much easier to retrieve from the target and your groupings will be 1"-2" all day. I bought the Parker Red Hot Pin Point Scope and it is the most Awesome crossbow scope on the planet. It has the dial a range turret on the top. I can pound 2" groups at up to 85 yards now. I'm sure 100 yards is not a problem I just haven't tried yet. If you want the bow to be quiet and protect your investment use Limbsaver products!! I have a set of the rubber cakes and buttons installed between my limbs! I also use the Limbsaver sling and quiver rubber stick on. Also string leaches. All this adds up to very little vibration from a bow that is so powerful it shoots as fast as my Ghost 400!! By the way Barnett customer service Sucks Ass raw!!! If your not the original owner of your bow the 5 year Barnett warranty is void!! NEVER BUY A BARNETT!! I bought a used 5+ year old Carbon Express X Force 300 with a bad scope. Sent it in to customer service. A new one was sent as usual no questions asked. The Tech team always respond to your questions and after talking with them on different occasions I'm convinced of their passion to put out a quality product!! I'm a Marine Infantry Vet. I'm also a 4 time expert and rifle and pistol coach in my 4 year term. I love the similarity the Cx-2 has to my M16a2!! Lastly DO NOT buy a 10 Point. Why the Hell would anyone buy a bow that can't shoot over 370fps until just now and you have to pay over $2,000.00 for it?!?!? Not to mention the owner decided to buy Hortons naming rights just to make sure anyone who owns a Horton can never get parts again!!! Complete SCUM BAG!!! I'm sure his strategy was to force Horton owners to get rid of their bows and then he could sell more bows! Would you buy a bow from COMPLETE WEASAL like that?!!!?!! Karma will bite his ass someday!!

Nice bow shoots accurate and easy to set up. For the bad. The camp leaves something to be desired. It is already starting to chip and peel near the butt stock at only one month old with roughly 50 shots. Overall good buy if you want a good weapon for the price.

This is my third cross bow, the Covert 2 is a good value for the price, very powerful and accurate. It shoots very well. The only problem is the very hard trigger, about a 10 lb pull, way too much, also a long trigger pull. This will have to be refined to make this bow upper tier product. Also the scope leaves some to be desired. I plan on having the trigger worked over by a local gunsmith after this season !

Absolutely love my crossbow. I sighted it in at 40+ yards and it was deadly accurate when I busted the big buck in the chest. Lots of power, string frays a little bit, but this is to be expected, and occasionally the allen bolts need to be tightened.

This is my first crossbow. I wanted a mid level crossbow that would be built well and have a good fps. I think the thing that I liked best was the mounting rail & foregrip. The scope is great, and it has a cocking crank (sold separately), It comes with 3 arrows & a 1 inch and 2 inch stock butt extension. This thing is a bit heavy but with the foregrip its well balanced and i feel that its got a good weight that is not so light that you pull of when shooting. Lots of bonus items on this that you only find on $800+ crossbows. Happy with the purchase, this has more than enough punch for Nasty Swamp Bucks.

Been looking for a crossbow for some time now, I didn't want to spend the 6,7 or 8 hundred bucks for one seeing's I don't hunt and wont be using all the time, someone mentioned that these were one of the few crossbows that ever came back with problems and were very well made, well, I could not agree more, this thing is just great, well made, came with a scope, just nice quality all the way around, and it LOOKS GREAT TOO.
