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.

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.

Unfortunately, the CX-3 had to be returned. Wouldn't zero at all and inserts came out of every single arrow (with the field points, of course) by the second shot. One of the Mayhems even cracked right at the edge of the now-empty forward hole. Very weird. I was shooting into my homemade target consisting of several layers of cardboard stacked together inside large cardboard containers that has worked perfectly for my PSE vertical and my bud's Excal Ibex. It felt really good, just never could get the scope on the same planet as the target at 10 yds and of course ... the bolts. I've shot CX arrows since I started in archery and I've never seen a CX arrow cocked up like these were.
Soon to be shooting SPOTS with a '12 Bow Madness XS with a frayed cable and a bunch of Wally World arrows all cut to different lengths.
