I also had the same question and am leaning toward the Viper after chatting with people who held both. I am torn between the graphite and veil alpine though. Also the $500 I can put into accessories and "sacrifice" 40fps.

I’ve held both and to me I like the Viper.
I like that it’s more compact and shoots plenty fast enough. I had a hard time choosing between the Viper and the Vapor.
Don’t get me wrong, the Vengent is going to be one awesome hunting crossbow for some.
The Viper just feels really nice to shoulder and from the videos I’ve seen ,it sounds very quiet.

Hey thanks for the reply! Yes, the Vapor looks amazing - just out of $ range. The vengent would be an option if I could justify moving up from the viper, but the feedback so far is that the Viper is a really nice bow. I appreciate everyone’s input!

I ordered the viper from Wyvern creations and I upgraded the scope to the evo x and added blazer case and he has a great deal I am so excited to get it, I went with the viper because I know that it is fast enough and it should be a little easer on the target and I like it is shorter

Been having a bad week. Went to the dentist and he sent me to a specialist. Been up all night with no sleep. Saw the specialist today and he’s sending me to Nashville tomorrow to another specialist to have two root canals ...Crap!!! No pain meds help and the antibiotics must be made from the same place the dang pain meds are.....junk!!, but when I think about my new Tenpoint Vapor RS470 kissing me on the cheek...well, I feel a little better. Lol
I should be back up and ready to shoot when my Vapor gets here. Come on baby!!!

I resisted the temptation to open that email, that way I didn't have to resist the temptation to place an order!! Lol!!
I gave my Shadow a little TLC yesterday just to show how much I still love it. :D

I have shot both the Vapor and vengent at the indy turkey expo both had great workman ship. I checked them both with a fine tooth comb Barb was really nice and patient I went with the vengent because I'm over 6 ft tall and it felt better to me. Both bows shot the x out at 20 yards and they weren't even sighted in to me whichever one you get they are really well made and worth the price for the quality.

I picked Veil Alpine it looked a little darker in real life like a light mossy oak which I have on my stealth ss that is about 9 years old. Also the trigger was really crisp but you have to get use to the 2 stage trigger I have that on my 450 bushmaster that I hunt with. Either color anyone will be happy with.

Hey thanks for the feedback. I agree - I am sure both are very nice.
