This crossbow stuff is new to me so would appreciate some guidence here before I waste a lot of $$$$.

Bow will be used mostly for whitetail hunting
Will not shoot game beyond 40 yds
Would rather be on the heavier side to take it easy on bow versus trying to tweak out all the speed possible
Would like lighted nocks
Looking for accuracy without breakig the bank for that extra 1/16 inch accuracy
Will probably stick with fixed blades but may considering trying mechanicals for the first time

Looking forward to your responses.

Good hunting!

Give Jerry a call at South Shore Archery. He'll do you right and wont over-sell you something you don't want or need.

Somebody drop a number so he can contact Jerry.

I also need arrows for a 360 assassin! thanks for the info here.

Can anyone please say why it is safe or preferred to go long with this 20” setup when the factory arrow is 16.5”?

IME, it is somewhat easier to get a 20” arrow to shoot fixed broadheads vs a shorter one. I’ve only had to go down to 17.5”, and they were great, with enough FOC. I prefer keeping the broadhead inside the foot stirrup when hunting, so for your Assassin, I’d guess the max would be 17”? I’ve never had that exact crossbow, but if, like you, I wanted to use lighted nocks, I’d try BEEs, Zombies, or GT ballistics, 16.5”-17”. 110 grain inserts, and 125 grain points. I’m sure other opinions will vary. Good advice calling a professional arrow maker for guidance.
