Mike,
I think I have my collection. 2 set up very light, 2 for longer range/low light.

One thing I have found, and it's intuitive, when I use a heavier stranded string(more strands) and heavier arrows, the xbow is less finicky and the points of impact, month to month stay better.

I still have my 4hp Johnson bought in the late 60s and my 98 Honda 4trax: both bought new. Still have the same wife after 49 1/2 years. I doubt, but who knows, that I'll be adding any more yo the stable soon. My stripped (or rather not added to except TT and XB75) sermon about as light as a Micro and lighter than a Suppressor. So, as I age, when I can't carry my lighter xbows, I'll likely be thru.
