Went to Bass pro tonight and shot a Excalibur Vortex model. Very impressed. Advertised speed 330pfs. With the 3x scope I was able to nearly hit the same hole in the target. This is a 200lb pull bow and with the rope assist I was able to pretty easily get it cocked. I really liked the thumb hole stock which fit me well. The trigger seemed to be in the 4 lb range, just a guess. These bows are just over 6lbs, something I have decided works for me. This is a upper middle of the road priced crossbow package and may end up with it in a couple of weeks.
