Mike, welcome to CBN and two good choices. Depends what are you wanting to do and how you hunt with a Xbow. I have owned both. If you are stalking and walking I like the TS-370 because it's lighter. The TS390 from a shooting house, blind or off a shooting stick shoots faster/flatter shooter but is bit not as nimble to carry IMHO. Truth be told not signifiant. Also, you may like the cosmetic look of the TS390 step through riser. It's slightly more nose heavy vs the TS370. That is my personal experience.

I prefer the TS370 because it's lighter and more compact. To me it gets down to personal preference. Both are very accurate once tuned and setup. Like all Xbows TLC is required.

Shooting both after I had them tuned with new strings.

TS390 shoots 403 grain arrow around 388-393fps... You can shoot faster but more stress on the Xbow limbs.
TS370 shoots 403 grain arrow around 373-378fps... You can shoot faster but more stress on the Xbow limbs.

Tip: Purchase BloodSpot Hunter arrows. They are great off the shelf arrows and affordable.

Hope this helps.

One other note regarding accuracy. Be sure to find a spot to mount a bubble level to limit canting (limbs tilting left or right). This is a game changer accessory and the cost is minimal.

I bit the bullet yesterday for a TS-370. :) There are some outstanding prices on 2019 models.

IaM, you can't go wrong with either.

Warranty, I'd advised going to Barnett's website.

Good luck!

I am also looking at the ts370 but I have no knowledge of tuning whatsoever. Would the bow as it comes from the factory sling the 403 grain arrow sufficient to take a small west coastal deer down at about 30 yards? The bow itself is like eye candy to me and I might have to get one!

Your gonna be shooting at least 360fps with that arrow. That is enough speed and kinetic energy to take down a moose at 30 yards. The hard part is getting within 30 of a coastal Blacktail. I have hunted them in my youth and they are harder to hunt then whitetail.
When I got mine it shot 403 grain BloodSport 366fps on my Chrono. That impressed me.

HunterThompson is on point. You will drop any deer at 30 yards with that setup.

I bought some rage crossbow x broadheads(100 grain) that were on clearance, would they make a good match with that bolt?
