If money is non important I'd say a PSE TAC is probably the best IMO, and has built in cocking system, only down one might see maybe is you have to shoot bolts made for it because they are longer than the average crossbow.
Barnetts are about the biggest in name brand right now, I personally have a older Horton 150lbs straight limb I got at dicks sporting goods about 12 years ago at a right price, ( back then it was on sale and it was under 200) I been thinking of upgrading myself to a newer cam'ed crossbow.
I've come to the same problem, too many years of concrete work have finally caught up to me, I can still draw mine but it is really hard. A while back Natchez Shooters Supply had Barnett Quad 400's for $318, they are a little more now, but I test shot one and it seemed fine to me and I could cock it just fine with a $20 cocking rope. They come in a package with a 4 arrow quiver, 4 arrows, and a 4x-32mm scope. 345 fps, really fast! Way cheaper than a good compound these days!!
Man I want one !!! :wub: the "holy grail" of crossbow's !! Who else has 412 fps, built in release system, anti dry fire system, built in cocking system that also is the ONLY crossbow that you can use the same built in system and uncock. The two big down falls to it are the cost, and I don't have one yet :wub:
I have two friends that both own the Ghost 350, both are extremely happy with their choices.
I cannot say personally but I don't see how there could be 400 dollars worth of improvement from the 350 to the 400.
I enjoy saving a little money when I can so personally, I would choose the 350 and use the savings for a carry case, extra bolts, and other supplies that might come in handy.
Good Luck on whichever you choose. :thumbup:
