    Carbon Express Covert CX3 SLS

    Was planning to get a Mission crossbow but local dealer has no stock so ended up for Carbon Express.

    I know this is an older post but what do you think of this Xbow? I just bought one and I am pretty excited.

    Here are my initial thoughts on this bow so far. If you want to shoot more than 30 yards with it and still use the scope it comes with,ditch the Mayhem bolts it comes with. They drop like a stone after 30 yards. Also it is pretty darn loud compared to my Solution 350. Other than those two points, it shoots and handles great and the trigger is not bad at all. In hindsight I am happy with this bow for what I paid for it and it will make a good back up.

    Are the Mayhem bolts just heavier than most other bolts? Is there another bolts you'd suggest for the CX3?

    I have one on the way and I have 10 acres of food plots, some requiring a 40 - 50 yard shot to get to the far woodline. I bought a cross bow specifically to get more range than my PSE BMXS povides, so I'm very interested in which bolts you're using now.

    I switched over to the bolts that came with my Solution. They weigh in at around 400 grams total(with broadhead) as opposed to around 420 grains with the Mayhems. It seems to have made a difference past 40 yards for me.
