I got a Horton Havoc, reverse limb cross bow combo kit recently. Bow, Quiver, 4x32 X-bow glass and 4 bolts for around $500.00. I haven't put it through it's paces in the field yet but I like everything about it except the cocking rope system. It uses a sled that rides the rail back and takes a little practice to to use quickly. The rope works well it's just different than I'm used to. It's not a big deal, more of the Old Dog/New Trick kind of thing.
The bow it's self is very well balanced though not as light as the newer light weight offerings from Ten Point and such. It's very compact and comfortable to shoot. I haven't chrono tested it though it feels wicked fast compared to my last X-bow, a 15 year old Hunter Supreme(very old tech).
I'd say it's a very good mid priced tool. There are certainly faster, lighter X-bows but at the price I'd recommend giving it a look.
