Two years ago NJ allowed xbow for all archery seasons.
I initially bought a Stryker xbow @ 405 fps.
The cables and string did not last long, it was huge and awkward ( IMO ) so I sold it on ebay.
I now have a Horton Vision which is about 300+fps and very narrow, under 20 inches axle to axle.
Being a reverse draw design it is very well balanced.
It is tough on servings due to extreme string angle.
I am up in the air as far as staying with an xbow.
They tend to be heavy, wide ( think about width if you hunt from a treestand and need to shoot behind you ). Most are tough on strings ( the string drags on the rail with MOST xbows ) and also most need a device to cock the bow due to heavy draw weights.
I am seriously considering using my vertical bow with a draw locking device.....not 100% sure yet.
