Tenpoint Vengent S440 Crossbow Problems

The price tag of the Vengent 400 is quite high. That makes it not a possible buy for a lot of us. Once you get passed the price-tag barrier, this crossbow can be an easy to recommend to everyone. The price to performance value on this one is just insane! I honestly can’t imagine just how good the Vengent performs.

Well it was supposed to be a cons section. No cons for today, I guess.

Ravin has a reputation of providing shitty crossbow scopes. There is a different package of the Ravin R20 known as Ravin R20 sniper. In that package the Ravin R20 comes with a sniper crossbow that performs quite well. The stock scope, not so much.

The price tag of this crossbow is also quite high.
