Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal ! Bow arrived and was easily assembled. This is a terrific bow and the cost is right. I expect to put a good scope on it since I don't care for the red dot. Looking forward to mi first deer with this bow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the money, it can't be beat!! Very easy to site in and easy to cock the string, so it would be perfect for someone that has problems with the heavier crossbows out there and still have the speed needed to get the job done!!
