My buddies wife wants to buy him a crossbow for Xmas. She asked me for some help but I know nothing about them. She wants to stay around the $500-$600 range at the most. Got online & looked at Dicks Sporting Goods & they have a Carbon Express Covert CX1 Package on sale for $349.98. They also have a Wicked Ridge Invader HP Multi-Line Package for $499.99 & a Barnett Headhunter Carbon Lite Package for $599.99. Would you fellas recommend any of these three or something else? This will be his first crossbow & has never hunted with one. Any help would be great...

Thanks!

Sick, I have both a Barnett Hellcat and Barnett Penetrator both from Dicks and both were in the $400-$550 range. They both shoot in the 350fps range. Crossbows are loud vs compound but the added speed should make up for it. I have no issue with either, just make sure to add rail lube and wax the non-served parts of the string and cables. Lastly, buy good targets like the Rhineharts because they are hell on targets, lots of power there..

She went ahead and ordered the Carbon Express Covert CX1 Package from Dicks. It was on sale online for $349 plus free shipping. Thanks fellas...
