Best Crossbow – Part One
I have always been fascinated with crossbows, and I read many crossbow reviews before I actually buying. The power and grace found in the modern crossbow combines the stability of a rifle with the quiet, precise accuracy of a bow, making it quite a dangerous weapon to the unskilled user.
Crossbows come in a wide variety of lengths, widths, and draw weights, so choosing the best one will take some research. Some things to take into consideration when looking for a crossbow are your height (the smaller in stature you are, the harder it may be for you to draw back a wide model) your upper body strength (those with less than stellar upper body strength may need a cocking aid or a crank) and for our hunters out there, what kind of critter are you trying to take down as dinner.
There is also the factor of compound verses recurve. To find the best crossbow, shoot as many different types as you can to get a sense of what works best for you.
For the money and quality, I’d recommend the models from TenPoint, such this one: Stealth XLT Crossbow. Remember though, it’s whatever works best for YOU.
Many manufacturer release new product every year, below is a video review for Ghost 410 CRT, the best and latest innovation from Barnett Crossbows in 2013.

High Quality Accessories – Part Two
As with all fun toys, there are accessories that will help, or hinder, your experience, and the same is true with your best cross bow.
Hopefully along the way while you were pouring over websites and reading many crossbow reviews you could get your grubby hands on, you also glanced over the extra gear you may want to purchase to get the most out of your crossbow.
This includes the rope cocking aids (if needed), bolts, scopes, and more. Always keep in mind that there may be manufacturer guidelines for the accessories your considering, so check and double check with the company that you purchased your crossbow from.
The last thing you want to do, other than injuring yourself, is to void the warranty on your crossbow by purchasing cheap gear on the advice of a drinking buddy or that guy you work next to. Use the right grain of arrows, the right rope aide (be it a rope cock or a crank), and the right scope makes all the difference in the world.
No one person can tell you which crossbow and accessories will be the perfect fit for you. Do the research, read the reviews, ask questions, and try as many of them out as you can. Safety and comfort comes first; always do what works best for you. Good luck, and may you lose only the bolts that hit their mark.
