I have had Barnett and Horton,both OK! But I just picked up a Excalibur and that has the best trigger pull and accuracy of all of the other X-bows I have shot...

My ten point out shoots my horton.Depends if you need a crank what you should consider. I needed a crank and the cranks that you carry with are so big .So I bought the ten point with a crank built in the stock.Shoots excellant 2 inch patterns at 25 yards.I shoot 125 spitfire mechanicals that tear holes like slugs.

I have a Horton that is awesome for me. I am not disabled (although my buddies say I am mentally challenged, lol). I am not familiar with the different cocking devices as I do not require one at this time.

I do have something to add though. I just bought some Montec one piece broad heads and I love them for all reasons. These tips are a one piece design, cutting out blade replacement cost. I shot this tip at my target which most inserts stopped in and it went through, traveled another 30 yards and stuck into a tree base. When I pulled the arrow, the broadhead was not damaged! this was amazing!

Secondly, the tip is very easy to sharpen as you can run it on a stone keeping it flat which takes honing know-how out of the question. finally, these tips are built so rugged that I think the 6 I bought will do me for close to 10 years. What a bargain!

The draw back... about $10.00 each ($29.99 for 3). These tips will cut with amazing precision. If you are disabled, you want a clean kill with a short tracking distance. I would recommend these tips for EVERY hunter, espcially the mobility-challenged.

Good Luck to all hunters!

You opened pandoras box, everyone believes theirs is the best. And they aren't wrong. The best crossbow is the one you can afford, that you can shoot well and effectively kill a deer. That said I bought a Barnett ghost 410, a year ago. And this past Christmas I gave both of my sons Barnett Brotherhoods as Christmas gifts.
