Rated 5 out of 5 by ponyxprss1974 excellent product
This is my first crossbow, and I'm extremely pleased with it's performance. The support from Dick's was excellent. They assembled the bow in store and allowed me to try it before purchasing, as well as answering many questions and making sure I was fully equipped for this bow before leaving the store. Pretty accurate in store, but a bit off in the field at first. A couple hours sighting it in and I've been grouping in 2" at 60 yards, also no problems with bulls eyes at 70 yards. Only problem I've had after a few weeks of use ... I'm breaking my bolts by robin hooding (now have multiple targets to shoot at before retrieving them.) Recommend not following the directions for waxing the string every 75 to 100 shots. We've been consistently waxing every 20 shots, and it's keeping the string from fraying this year (as I've seen has happened on other customer reviews.) Well rounded bow, and easy enough for myself and other women to draw. Excellent bow for target shooting, and in the field for taking deer (and other large game animals).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sword's edge Accurate, easy to cock, but watch the serving!
For the money this is a good crossbow, accurate out of the box, with some small adjustments. Quite noisy, dampeners helped that out.
My main complaint is that the protective serving that covers the string where it wraps around the cams is breaking. I haven't shot more than 40 shots through this cross bow sighting it in, so I think that is a bit premature as far as durability is concerned. I noticed the broken serving when the bow was cocked and I was up in a tree stand. I thought at the time that it was a poor time for that problem to show up.
Since strings and cables are not covered under their warranty I hope I can just reserve the string, but that can only be done while it is cocked to expose the broken serving. Not the safest way to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NOVA Hunter Great Crossbow
i bought this for my wife's birthday, bow season opens soon and she enjoys hunting with me. I did a tremendous amount of research on the internet to get the best value without sacrifiing quality. I bought it at Dicks because the local store manager agreed to a price match and the fact that Dicks is reputable company that I can go back to if there's a problem. I was able to sight in with just few arrows. the manufacturers website recommends to zero at 30 yards and it will automatically be "on" at 20 and 40 yards. I followed their guidance and found it to be true. The bow is very accurate. The wife has a lot of confidence after shooting it about 30 times. The 3x scope is clear. She was drilling the block and 3 D targets. I only have2 faults I could find - the trigger has a glitch in it but it breaks at about 3 1/2 lbs. the automatic safety has to be in the fire position before cocking it or it won't fully cock. The safety will reset by itself sometimes after shooting other times it doesn't. just have to train yourself to check it before cocking. So far I am very pleased with performance for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJeff Great quality for the price
This is my first crossbowand I Love it; as soon finished the easy assembly I was able to shoot it from 20, 30, and 40 yds.. I shot six bolts at the different yardage and they landed in a 4 in. grouping. Overall its pretty quiet, but I did put a split limb silencer on it which helped. Great crossbow, with a big name standing behind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bullet Excellent Crossbow
This is my first crossbow. I don't believe I could have purchased a better one for the money. Easy to assemble. I took my time, and after reading the instructions first, I put it together in about 35-40 minutes. Out of the box the sight for 20 yds was off 3" to the left and about 2" high. After initial adjustment at 20 yds, I had to tweak the 30 yd setting about two clicks and that's all it needed. I shot half dollar sized groupings at 20, 30,

Rated 4 out of 5 by jc So far so good
I'm satisfied with this crossbow. It took an hour to adjust the scoop and I was grouping within a half dollar. it was easy to assemble and it looks and feels strong. I gave it only a good rating because I want to use it awhile before I completely endorse it.

Great product straight of box 2" grouping aT 40 yards. Only problem was no instructions in box but easy to find on there website. Best part was angela at the dicks store in ft smith ar she was so helpful in getting me hooked up since this is my first crossbow. The cocking rope on bow works great and scope is super clear. The bow is a little loud but dampners helped quite a bit. I would recommend to any first timer . Really great product!!!!
