picked one of these up recently, i will start with i had a tenpoint proview scope to put on it and my own arrows, so i cant speak to that. Once i had it all set up went to site it in, tried a couple ways to cock it, i prefer by hand, but couldnt do to easy so i settled by putting rope cocker through hole in stock. It has alot of stuff built into it for quieting it down, it works. low vibration to me and wasnt to loud at all, i adjusted the stock easily, and the hand grip i moved way up so my wife could use shooting sticks and i could off hand. The trigger is fine to me. I am rusty as hell, i havent shot anything in over a year but was making kill shots within 5 arrows at 20 yards. The two side decals pealed off in the sun, weird, but no issue. Well balanced, seems to have plenty of power and was easy to put together. I will add to this as i shoot it more, so long as it dont start falling apart and keeps shooting the way it does now think we will be happy with it if we hunt this year.
