I picked up four, Zombie RIP scope package crossbows this week at Woodbury Outfitters in Jeffersonville, OH. I only paid $179.99 each! All of which do not have the vibration dampening kit but do have the revised riser. I will be giving them to my kids to use for whitetail hunting this fall. I have not assembled any of them, but before I do, I just thought that I would ask you guys and gals for your advice.
I shot one at the store with the supplied BoneCollector arrows, 100gn. field point and it was suprisingly loud. I plan on slowing down the release with 125gn. points to start. Also, I will be using a silicon based rail lube and only lightly wax the string and buss strands.
If you have any do's or don't's when it comes to shooting, assembling or maintaining the bow, I would appreciate the feedback. Anything issue that I can avoid will save me 4 times the time and cost in repairs.
Thanks in advance
