    The choices on the site seem to be behind the times, there are some newer models that surely would have been included had they been offered at the time of the surveys taken.

    I wouldn't buy a bow based on what someone else likes anyway. It's getting harder today to make selections since there are so many good choices between weight, speed, and cost. I like simplicity and reliability and light weight. Speed is good, but not as important to me as size, weight, and reliability. When people ask what crossbow is best, all they're going to get is everyone's opinion on what they own. Best just to try as many as possible before buying.

    Don't use them as a basis for a purchase. The right crossbow will almost choose you. The one you choose may very well fit some of the criteria in that 'survey'....but buy a crossbow because it fits you.....and gives you the most features you want for your budget.....

    I agree to this rankings... but I think it differs from users itself.

    These are all relatively inexpensive models. The rankings may be correct for that price range. My experience has made it clear to me that the higher end Cross Bows perform and hold up much better than the low end models.

    I agree that the list is incomplete.
