    #1 crossbow on the market Ten Point from there I would look at Parker, X-Force(carbon express) Darton, Horton. For a recurve style Excalibur is the best. I would personally stay away from Barrnett hard company to work with and today considered a box store bow.
    Have a good day and a better hunt

    Crossbow

    A friend of mine has a Horton 225lb recurve, and a Parker 175 compound.
    I havn't shot them a lot, but the Parker is much nicer to use.
    Easier to cock, handles better.
    IF I had to use one of the two, Parker all the way.

    2003 Hoyt Razortec XT2000 63lb, 360gr@275fps, for 3D and light game.

    stryker

    Bow guns! Shows how much he knows about crossbows. Crossbow is NOTHING like a gun except for the stock. Shoots nothing like a gun. Accuracy is comparable to a compound bow. Maybe more accurate at 20 yards or so but if you twitch, your bolt is way off. Sorry for the rant. I have a desert stryker from bowtech and it is very nice and fast! But ten point is another one that is very good. I would put those two at the top of the heap.

    Thumbs up Hunlee's new Warp Speed bow.

    Here's a pic of Hunlee shooting his new Warp Speed PSE Tac-15 crossbow.
    Didn't know you're a closet crossbow fan, Hunlee.
    Cool looking bow you have there, Hunlee

    depends

    It depends on how much you want to spend on the bow, they gp from about 350 to 2400. I started with a lower price point to make sure I would enjoy the switch after about 20 years hunting with a vertical. Footbalfan

    Please define what you mean by "good." Price? Length of warranty? Customer support? Reliability? Ease of maintenance? Size? Weight? Quality of trigger? Speed? Ease of cocking? Availability of mechanical cocker? Fit and finish? etc, etc, etc. Without that, you're just likely to get more subjective opinions and brand loyalty.
    Why do I hunt? Simple, it's BASIC.

    The top four manufacturers are Bowtec, Ten Point, Parker, Excalibur.( Not necessarily in that order) They all make excellent crossbows with very good quality, great customer service and life time warranty There are many other manufacturers that make crossbows, some are decent other are marginal at the very best.

    I really believe that Hunlee and Footbalfan are one in the same. Neither one has the common sense that God gave a rock

    Now that it looks like I'll be joining the ranks of the unemployed I'll have more time to go hunlee snipping...should I use a crossbow? How many trailer walls will a crossbow bolt go thru vs a compound's arrow?
