You have shot them with a crossbow though. Tell us your experience on them? Do you think they have any advantages over a compound? Just curious. The 3 guys I know, shoulder injuries, all claim it is like cheating during bow season if you keep your range realistic and deer are not alert. They all laugh about it when we have this exact conversation. Surprisingly, they do not support crossbows outside of the disabled for archery season. They are all shooting upper end crossbows though which I am sure can make a difference on performance. It is pretty amazing a guy can wrap up $2000 up in one. Of course, it blows my mind upper end compound bows you will wrap $1500 in one as well.
