I did some serious testing for an article "Crossbows vs. Compounds -- Myths & Facts" -- published in Bow & Arrow Hunting Magazine. I came to the conclusions that in terms of penetration and trajectories out to 50 yards, a 175# crossbow had almost the same performance as a high quality compound bow set at 70#. I am not a crossbow user but they have been allowed in archery hunting seasons in Ohio for a couple of years - and this has only helped gain increased archery seasons, with crossbow users having no greater success than compound users. I'm just happy to see some youngsters taking up the sport.
