Its no different than anything else. you get what you pay formideerslayer said:Why is there such a price range on crossbow's?
They go any where from $200 to $2,400 what are the pros and cons?
I hope to be able to get one soon and want some idea's
Moonkryket said:We have choices up to the kazoo The reason there ARE crossbows in the $2000.00 + range is that there are customers willing to pay it and somehow justify that price to themselves. I certainly feel that I got more for my money with the Pro Slider and GT Flex than I did with the Phantom, for example, BUT the Phantom and Desert Stryker will put a smile on your face that you don't get shooting a 280 fps crossbow. That smile costs $1,500.00
Don't forget that Barnett carries many crossbow that they say exceeds 340 fps. The Quad 400 and the Revolution are a couple. and you can pick them up for under $500. I was looking that direction and instead went Tenpoint. I will let you know this year how well my choice was after I see if the great white tail outsmarts me of if I outsmart it. I went Tenpoint but I got my father a Barnett. When we site in I will post the difference that I see (if any) in noise, penetration of the target.DaGriz said:It looks like there is finally a crossbow that will shoot 340+fps and not cost anywhere near 2K The Parker Cyclone looks like it might be a keeper. 340+fps, weighs a meer 6.5lbs and cost $700. That is going to be hard to beat for the money!
