Most helpful critical review
you're likely to end up with a bad hit on a deer that jumps the string
on July 28, 2015
I bought this for my sons to hunt with until they can pull enough poundage with a compound bow. As some of the other reviews state, the limb becoming loose is an issue. I also use 22" inch carbon bolts. We tried several lengths but these have been the most consistent. It definitely does not shoot 245 f.p.s. as advertised but is sufficiently fast out to 25 yards. I mounted a TrueGlo crossbow scope and zeroed the top line at 20 yards (instead of the suggested 25). The bottom line is on at 35 yards but, given the slow speed, you're likely to end up with a bad hit on a deer that jumps the string. If you're looking to take medium to large hogs or shoot deer further than 25 yards, I would suggest spending more for a crossbow that will shoot 350 f.p.s. or more.
