- Great for hunters and recreational archers alike
- Military-style stock is durable and comfortable
- Best crossbow for the money
Cables and string tend to fray after 20-30 shots; requires regular maintenance and replacing.
Details: For that handsome hunter in your life, this is the perfect gift! With hunting season only a few months off, he's got plenty of time to get used to this crossbow.
The crossbow is built well, with a military-style stock that is beautifully sleek and feels comfortable. The trigger has just the right amount of sensitivity (3.5-lb pull), and the scope gives you a clear view of your target. The vertical and horizontal screws make it easy to adjust your sights as you hunt. Arrow velocity is up to 315 feet per second, or 214 MPH - more than enough power to take down most large game!
Price: Despite no longer being a budget-friendly crossbow (price is hovering around $490, up from $280), this is an excellent crossbow, and the perfect addition to his hunting gear. Best of all, he'll love the challenge to hunt without a gun, and put his tracking and hunting skills to the test.
