    which crossbow should I buy?

    Hey Guys,
    looking for some of your opinions.
    I currently have a compound bow, unfortunately there are many reasons why I
    decided I'd like to buy a crossbow but I don't have a big budget.

    I'm looking at two crossbows from dicks links are listed below:

    based on your experiences which one of these should I purchase?
    thank you for your input.

    Without a doubt. Get the Wicked Ridge it is a good solid bow. An added bonus is that if you ever need them, Ten Point's customer service is beyond belief.

    Just bought a Wicked Ridge Invader from Wyvern Creations.com
    I would look in to them before buying. You will get more for your money and better customer service.

    For another $100. you can buy the Barnett headhunter from dicks that shoots 350 fps and has 116 ftp kinetic energy and has hand crank, my wife loves hers and it is fast, she has taken four deer last season at 40-60 yards ,it is the same as the ghost 350. My next xbow will be Barnett after I sell my ten point.

    for what its worth, if you didn't purchase a bow. I got the wicked ridge warrior and am very happy with it. I got rid of the aluminum arrows it came with as they are junk and bought carbon express pile drivers. I have about 100 shots on it and am very happy with it. I took a 6 point buck with it on Saturday at thirty yards and the arrow flew true into the boiler room, he didn't run more than 30 yards.

    great bow and easy on the wallet.

    I personally would not buy Barnett but if that's all you got cash wise Wicked Ridge is a great bow for the price. I'm a Excalibur recurve guy myself you can pick up a used Matrix and have a Transferable warranty on it can't beat that.

    Don't forget to budget money for replacing string and cables every 3yrs.
    I paid $95 for my 10pt service.
