Excalibur !!

Simple Medieval recurve technology has worked reliably for hundreds of years

Don't have to shoot a bolt to discharge it....simply de-cock it w cocking string and no worry bout throwing cams off timing

Change your string on your own and no trips to the bow shop

I paid more when my Barnett Vengeance Reverse Draw X-Bow was new, however, here it is with for $650, with free shipping.

It will be hard to beat at that, or any other price.

It comes with an illuminated scope that I did not care for.  Good optics are expensive.  Add in some electronics and you're talking even more.

I promptly purchased a Nikon, like this one for $139.95

Seeing that the x-bow has come in under budget, perhaps, you could spend a little on Zeiss Optics, which should be much better in low light.  Here it is for $299.99.  Disclaimer: I have never seen this scope in person and I am just name brand shopping at this point.

Also, don't forget, some of these x-bows are not fun to cock.  The Barnett uses a tool/string which isn't bad.  However, I would be concerned if you have back problems.  You might want to try before you buy.

Good Luck.

I have only shot my Parker F4 Tornado ever for 7 years so i can't say what is good or not. It still shoots good and have killed my share with it since I had to go to it cause of bad shoulder surgery. Look like a lot of people like the Ten Point. Good info here from the reviews

Does anyone know if it ready to shoot out of the box??  Any set up involved?  Looks like a sweet deal.

It usually requires the foot stirrup be attached. That's it. You can contact Ten Point directly. I bought three of their bows and that's all that was needed.
