Cody there is nothing wrong with the pheonix as long as you keep your shots at a respectable distance but that goes without saying for all the bows ( it is not a rifle with 0-50 flat shooting). My brother had the same problem his wife said this is your budget so he wanted the goodies instead of the ...

I agree , with all the cables and wheels there is nothing but trouble waiting around the corner . What do you do if something goes wrong with it on a moose hunt stop hunting all together . I really believe in the KISS theory .

What I have found works for me is I went with tri-colour fletching (hot pink,white and black ) . This way there is a colour that always contrasts with the surroundings .Plus the white gives me an indicator of where I really hit , by the colour of the blood . I haven`t lost an arrow in 13 years with ...

Answer to your first question is yes it is still a good bow , it has the power stroke of a vixen . I still have mine and I have had people offer to buy it for when they sold their`s they had wished they had held on to it .

JR you are better to get a scope that is designed for crossbows or airguns . When I first started to shoot in 3-d`s I went through two simmons scopes and one bushnell . It was the same problem with all three the reticles just could not take that reverse recoil . The worse one was the simmons, got it...

The truth is you will have more than enough power to harvest a deer with the vixen . Convinced my brother to buy one and the only complaints would be from the deer . The vixen or the pheonix are a good choice for the financially inhibited .
