Reader James S. wrote in recommending the NcStar Crossbow for its value and proficiency. Specifically, he says, "I picked one of these up back in March and it's awesome. Inexpensive and you certainly can take out little varmints with it." Some other reviewers aren't as enthusiastic, but at under $50 I might be willing to test my luck at a round of bowfishing. Or ridding the neighborhood of pigeons.

NcStar says its compact, lightweight design is suitable for all ages, particularly those just learning to handle a crossbow. Many question the company's stated 90 lb draw weight, but...that's how it's stated. Front and rear sights, including a red dot sight, and a 3/8" dovetail rail are part of the bow configuration. Also included in the package are 10 long arrows, 10 short arrows, an arrow retrieving kit with string spool, and 4 retrieving arrows.

Muchas danke to James for the Dude Product Tip.
