Default Crossbow recommendations.

So after I got my covid bonus from uncle Peabody my next check will have around $650 extra dollars on it and was thinking about getting a crossbow. Any anyone has any suggestions on the basics to get for a beginner? Trying to stay close to that amount that my uncle was so kind to give to me.

I also purchased a crossbow at $300. I'm looking for the same advice on this crossbow.

With crossbows, you get what you pay for. Spend the money. Get a good one.

I have had a centerpoint sniper 370 ($214.00) new when I bought it several years ago. I dont think you need to pay $1500.00 on a crossbow to be happy

Some of the higher end ones have cocking and de-cocking mechanisms. That is worth quite a bit IMO. The Ten Point Viper S400 I have is a 400 FPS cross bow that has a built in crank to cock and de-cock it. It takes literally 5 seconds to unload and de-cock it and be legal for the vehicle trip home.

I have a TenPoint Titan which was in your price range. It shoots 370fps and is very accurate. It doesn’t have a de-cocking mechanism like CIs does. I just shoot a practice bolt into a target to unload. The only knock I have is that it is very loud. I’m going to see if I can get some so d dampers for on it.
