I'm totally new in this job. Before a month i buy mine first crossbow. Before i was a big fun of air rifles. Here in mine country hunting with crossbow is actually forbidden, so i use him only for target practicing. Because I'm new in this can someone give me some note did i buy a good thing. Because in Macedonia there is no such a big choice of products. So i buy this type for some 180USD.. Here is the specification:

Length: 29-1/2 inches
String length: 26-1/2 inches
Axle to axle: 26 inches
Draw weight: 150 lbs
Limb: compression molded fiberglass
Barrel: aluminum alloy
Speed: 210 feet/sec.
Packing: 5pcs/ctn, 5.5cu'ft, G.W.:16.5kgs

regarding to the sellers here, this is good product. Normally its not Barnett, but here the Barnett model from 2006 cost near 900USD, and i think this is too much for a beginner like me. Actually I'm very satisfied with him. Its good for the budget.
Most of mine question are connected with string. Here there is no original Barnett or Excalibur wax, so regarding the seller i use hair wax. I think it give good lubrication. Also ill be very grateful if someone can give me some free suggestions or advices regarding the maintenance of the crossbow. Also i want to put on him a normal scope from air rifle. I have one spare, That is a model Norica 3-9x40, pls can i use it...It will be good if i can....
Best regards of all members and thx....
