This crossbow is very well made. No cheap components and is light weight. It is quiet and well thought out ergonomically. The draw weight is higher than most. Not everyone will be able to load this bow. 280lb draw. The only real negative thing I have to say is the arrows and broadheads are unique making options very limited. 150 grain broadheads and easton quill 16.5 inch arrows. Both of these are exceptional choices but there are not alot of 150 grain broadheads on the market.
