Best/most fps and draw weight sub $400 crossbow?

Postby Madax132 » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:27 pm

What is the best crossbow for under 400$, unless it is extremely liable to breakage I would like to know specifically the most powerful one for sub 400$, if that one is also liable to breakage give me the next best one.

if there is only a small difference in power A lighter crossbow is preferred.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

You can't make an omelette without crushing dozens of eggs beneath your steel boot and then publicly disemboweling the chickens that laid them as a warning.

Target practice, it looks like a lot of fun to shoot.

I'm looking at the Barnett jackal right now. Along with any other suggestions if anyone wants to give their 2 cents on that particular one as well it'd be much appreciated.

I like "Tod's Stuff" crossbows, make a nice showpiece and fun target bow, http://www.todsstuff.co.uk/crossbows/crossbows.htm

their a bit higher than what your looking for but if you can they are totaly worth it.

Or

you can make your own, thats always fun, the fleemarket down the street from where i'm at sells 150 and 225 crossbows, $30-$135 depending on maker and condition.

Added this thread to the Unofficial Archery index thread for future reference. :)
My favorite quotes from Rorschach from the comic Watchmen

"Once a man has seen society's black underbelly, he can never turn his back on it. Never pretend, like you do, that it doesn't exist."

"None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with *ME*!"

Awesome looking but way out of my price range unfortunately. They do look very nice though so maybe when I have a bit more money, thanks for the recommendation.

Fine with me, do you have any particular recommendation for a crossbow friend?
