Today I received my CP400 that I ordered online. I get home from work and open up the box and wow I like it. The weight IMO is pretty light at least compared to my other bow a CP Mercenary 370. The fit and finish of the bow is very nice except for the stock rattles when it's moved around. That is a gripe to me but easily fixed. The cocking takes some getting used to and I'm not used to a sled and the 200lb draw is doable but yup I can tell. The trigger is AWFUL it's gritty, heavy, creepy and just plain garbage. Is it useable yes it is but I'm a trigger snob. I know a guy that can fix it...calling you RDGuy .
the bow is louder than any bow I've shot but it's also the fastest, lightest, and narrowest too. I can hopefully source some dampers to maybe kill down some noise and vibration.

Overall it's a nice bow and I'm gonna enjoy it. I do plan on fixing the trigger after bow season and I shoot it some more.

Did your new CP400 come with the orange string cocking rope? It should have and that's the updated version of that rope/sled.

Fix that trigger and maybe consider better arrows and an optic update. Those changes will produce a CP400 that's very comparable to the R10 and in some cases, better.

Congrats on the new xbow!

I've got some indexed BEE's from South Shore that I'm gonna try out. And RDXGuy when I get ready to have the trigger done I know who I will be sending it too...the scope is fine for now but I will probably add a Ravin Takeoff scope in a few weeks. And yes it came with the orange cocking rope I'm glad too as I heard the orange rope was the updated version.

Well I shot my CP400 for the first time today. I ran one factory arrow over the chrono and got 398fps. The trigger isn't just awful it's ATROCIOUS I need to get the trigger addressed ASAP. I've got 10 shots through the bow and I see the center serving wear that is well reported. At 20 yards I am maxed out on adjustment to the right and it's still shooting about an inch left. Looks like I'll be adding a Ravin Take Off sooner than I anticipated.

I also noticed what I think is a little cam lean on the right limb. Maybe it's just me tho I'm not sure. Guess I'll have to take some pics and measurements.
