Guest's review of Con-Fu Enterprises Hou Shiueh CF 118


“All in all, its not the best you can buy but it might...”

Written on: 26/01/2009

Good Points
It has a good look to it. The stock is pretty comfortable. Its lightwieght, about 5 lb. It shoots alright and has a good range, accurate around 60 yd and is capable of shooting the bolt up to around 100 yd, give or take. It is aslo quite affordable, seen them on ebay with scopes and 8 bolts included for under 100.

Bad Points
The directions that came with it were aweful and were not detailed like they should. The directions for my not as lethal rc helicopter were more detailed. I've been having problems with the whole safety trigger mechanism thing, but it could just be the individual one I got. Beware of the workmanship of the gunsights, on mine the bolt kept hitting the front sight and tearing off the fletching. I suggest you don't buy a used one of these without some assurance that you can take it back.

General Comments
All in all, its not the best you can buy but it might make an alright starter for someone if the directions were more detailed. Be careful when you take it outside, make sure the temp is above 32 F, windchill included, unless you have anti-freezing lubricant on the trigger-safety mechanism. Mine tends to malfunction when ever its too cold, but I was just introduced to crossbows and didn't know about any of that. And Im talking about dangerous malfunctions, the last it froze up it went off 5+ times while the safety was engaged and without touching the trigger. When you do get one, have someone who knows all about crossbows to help you assemble it if you're not an expert. And if you can afford to, get a Horton, Barnett, etc.

  • Crossbows

    What type of equipment is it?
