Go to the crossbow specific section of the forum and you will get more responses. What is your price range, what you consider afoordible is different then what I consider affordable. Wicked Ridge crossbows are made by ten point. I have one and it shoots very good for being in the lower price range.

However, IMO< nothing beats going to a few good shops that have a large selection and shooting some and seeing what one's FIT you, and your style of hunting
as what I like, you might NOT

and many small differences in X bows, that may again make you like or dislike, as face it, were NOT all built the same , nor like the same things!

from fit, sound, width, ease to load/unload weight, and so on!

Centerpoint 415 comes in a few different names ....The 415 Amped can be found in most places, 415 Heat can be found in selective stores, the 415 Patriot is for Walmart, there isn't any difference between them as far as specs they are the same...the Heat and Patriot comes with a hand crank if you decide you need to use it.....I personally have the Patriot I found it last month at Walmart on clearance sale for $169.00.

I do think the scope should be upgraded which I did, the bolts in my opinion are OK, I use them to discharge my crossbow at the end of a hunt....I did upgrade the bolts the Victory Decimators with lighted nocks, these can be found at Dick's Sporting Goods or Field & Stream Store, or at Sportsmansguide,com under their "GUIDE GEAR" name.....these are the same as the Victory XBolts, they fly great, and the price is excellent, look them up on Dick's, Field & Stream or Sportsmansguide.com web page, I really like the Rage Hypodermic broadheads, also I had just two other upgrades down....I had the trigger worked on the trigger pull is now 2.5 lbs, the creep of 1/8", and replaced the bolt retainer with a brush.....It wasn't needed these two upgrades, but being I got the bow so cheap in price I said what the heck !!!

For the Centerpoint Amped 415 this price is excellent when compared to other stores or online price: https://northwoodsoutlet.com/product...-415-crossbow/

I have 2 CenterPoint Sniper 370 crossbows and IMO they are everything you need in a crossbow. They're inexpensive (about $250) and are very fast and accurate. I've had mine for 3 years now and I've taken 2 buck with the one. The other I got for my grandson. These manufacturers are going nuts with their prices.

I agree 110% on Centerpoint and the prices of some are insane

I have that same CrossBow . I paid $300 a couple years ago and I am completely satisfied with it . We can use it the last two weeks of Bow Season in New York so it works for me .
