Tonight I got to break in my "New to Me" Phoenix. I bought this bow on Ebay a few months ago and restored and rescoped this oldie but goodie crossbow! All you hear about in crossbows anymore is what kind of group you get at 100 yards, how much over 400 fps the particular bow goes and how quiet the new bows are. Well this bow isn't narrow by any means, I'd never shoot a 100 yard group with it and it's slow by today's standards. The doe I shot was with 5 other deer and at the shot the doe ran and the other 5 never moved, within a minute or so they continued feeding. So I guess it isn't that slow or loud after all. I'd like to thank Jerry at South Shore Archery for making my arrows and also Boo for making me a quality string. Without them I couldn't have filled my tag!
