Go to a forum called Crossbow Nation. Lots of really good info on crossbows. Most of the mfgs have a forum dedicated to them.
Like here, there are lots of other forums covering many topics.
There is no real consensus on the best mfg. There are guys that swear by any number of mfgs. I personally like Wicked Ridge because of the quality, accuracy, and really good customer service and good prices. Trust me, new crossbows are not trouble-free, so it's best to have a mfg that will respond to any issues you have. The WR is made by Ten Point their rep monitors the forum dedicated to them. He's a good guy and always tries to help.
Good luck, and there are lots of options out there.
Again when you get ready to buy check with Dave at Wyvern Creations extremely knowledgeable and best prices around.
