Default New crossbow for the wife

I want to get my wife a new crossbow she has an arrow precision inferno fury. It was a great beginner crossbow, but it only shoots about 230 at best so not a lot of KE and I really wanted to take her hog hunting one day and the crossbow she has won't cut it. I have a few in mind just want some feedback on em.
1. 2011 Barnett penetrator or 2010 predator
2. Stryker 350
3. Horton team realtree ultra light
4. Or Barnett ghost carbon lite 350
Just looking on some input on these new bows

If you want a reliable, accurate, and well made crossbow you have two options:

Compound crossbow: TenPoint (or Wicked Ridge)
Recurve crossbow: Excalibur

I have both. Just call any of your local dealers and ask them their return rates on their crossbows. You will then know why I list those two crossbows.......

after looking at new bows alot of the newer ones are too big and bulky for her. I actually put a bushnell shotgun scope on her crossbow and man it drives tacks, my only thing is that it really doesnt push a whole lot of KE. but u know it shoots way faster than my dads old proline and he has shot 2 nice mature bucks with his years ago. so i think we are just gonna keep this one for now. but thanks for your input i really appreciate it.
