Carbon Express X-Force 350 Crossbow Kit
Superman couldn't cock this one
This bow is pretty much what I expected and is a fine bow except one important thing. If you are not the Incredible Hulk, you're not going to be able to cock this thing, even with the string cocking device. I went and ordered the mechanical device, though on BassPro it is about $100 overpriced from other places I've found it. It's easy enough to put together but the directions on sighting in the scope and mounting it are worthless...especially in regard to adjusting the crossbolt setting before you attach the scope. I still haven't figured that one out. Scope directions are TINY...and I mean TINY blurry photocopied directions that wouldn't even magnify well if you tried. I almost gave 3 stars just for that.

Other web reviews give low ratings for the trigger, it is stiff but after 4-5 shots you get the "feel" for it. It took 4 shots at 20 yards to dial it in dead center, 1 shot at 30 yards. It has been very consistent since purchase. I tested several others but came back to this one. For the price point it's the best out there and it has not had any of the reliability issues some of the others have. Solid purchase, I would not hesitate to recommend this Xbow.
BassPro staff were excellent with their helpful knowledge and set up of the Xbow.

This is my first crossbow so I did not want to spend a lot of money but also wanted something that was reliable and fun to shoot. I did my research on this one and went down to Bass Pro to check it out. It is lightweight and feels well balanced. The scope that comes with it is decent and is easy to see with. I purchased the crossbow and bought a soft case for it. Went to the range the next morning to test it out. It was easy to cock with the included rope cocker. I was shooting at 40 to 50 yards with excellent grouping. Shoot over 40 bolts that morning with no issues. This crossbow has a lot of power and is a lot of fun to shoot. Both of my friends who often hunt with bows were impressed with it as well. If you are looking for a good crossbow that is not expensive I would suggest this one.

Carbon Express X-Force 350
This is the worst crossbow that I have ever owned. My first X-Force had a 18 - 21.5 trigger pull, sent it back to the company and they replaced it with another one with a 18 - 21.5+ trigger pull. Carbon Express Company says they are working on it. If you are considering buying a carbon Express crossbow THINK TWICE!
