Default RE: best crossbow for 15 yr old under a budget?

I myself use a PSE Viper Rattler crossbow with very good results. I am using 20" carbon bolts and get them spit out at about 275-285 fps perfects for hunting. I bought it new for 365$ plus tax at academy. If it matters it is a 165# compound

I have an interest in the PSE rattler too, theres just something about it that I like,and I may pick one up in the future just to check it out(maybe a bowfishing rig if nothing else), its kind of hard to really find anyone who owns one to get anyinfo on it though, but what I have heard has all been good...

if your interested in it I know I've seen the rattler package here and there for under $300 and a quick online search came up with this... http://www.outdoorsuperstore.com/product.asp?prod=532060

it may be found cheaper, but thats as far as I looked... but even still, thats rivaling hortons price for their summit CB, my brother has a summit and theres absolutely nothing wrong withthatCB either,but I've never even seen a rattler in person so I dont know which would be the better deal...



I've seen "bow only" vixens aroundfor under $300 too, ebay usually has some good deals...

If that is your top dollar amount then a Horton summit will be a good starter CB package. Not top of the line but will kill a deer and not your wallet.
