What's your favorite feature about your favorite crossbow? Was it a selling point?
Me, I love the thumb hole stock. It's a must for me.

Love the thumbhole stock on my Vortex, the speed of my Cyclone and the ease of pull of my Phoenix. But, unlike John Edwards, only one woman.

What?

My favorite feature IS the Crossbow.After suffering a severe left hand injury and finding I could no longer shoot my conventional bow proficiently,the Crossbow has allowed me to continue in the sport I really do love.;)

I have read about some of you dry fire your bows, especially the excal owners, the TenPoint is almost inpossible to do that. I think more companies should add that safety feature.
Agreed. But Ive managed to dryfire both a compound, with anti dryfire devise, and an Excal.( I shoot a lot) Best prevention is using what the Almighty put between the ears.

While nothing is impossible...the anti-dry fire mechanism on the Darton is very good. Though it can be a double edged sword, if one fails to "fully" cock the bow...you get the same "safety" engagement. I did this the very first time I cocked my new (at the time) Darton Fireforce.
Very effective.

The light string to track load is also very nice. String servings last seemingly for ever.

For "me"...the trigger mechanism is also very clean and simple. I am able to taylor the trigger action easilly to my liking.

Comming up rapidly is the Horton reCon. Also a very light string to track load. Overall small size. VERY accurate (as with most modern crossbows).

Tough question to answer

For hunting:

Small size and light weight - feels good in hand and comfortable to carry and shoot.


For fun shooting:

Smooth and quiet with little recoil


For 3D competition:

Standup off hand consistent accuracy with little sensitivity to changes in shooting form

Unfortunately I don't have all those things in any one crossbow............yet

Terminator HP

Minimal maintenance, good workable trigger, warranty. Oh, and Parker is only 15 miles from my house! I think the last one is what sealed the deal. :eek:

I am so pleased with the Terminator that I just bought my son a Buckbuster 150. He is VERY impressed with it, as I am. He's looking forward to "drilling" some deer with it this fall.
