Iíve never shot one but from what Iíve read and heard, thatís a pretty sweet shootin bow. And comparing to other used prices online it looks like $400 is a bit better than fair.

I shot a creed xs for awhile. I liked it and it was very smooth. My only complaint was it seemed louder than normal. I took it back to a local shop(they are a joke) and his response was that was just how that bow sounded. Could’ve been true, but I doubt it.

I wanted one baaad but ended up with a Hoyt pro defiant for about $500 with all Hoyt accessories. (Quiver, Hoyt QAD and stabilizer) I shot the xs at west Houston and loved it but it was new and out of my price range. I love my Hoyt but Iíd probably be just as happy with the XS. I think $400 is fair as long as itís in great condition.

I have to be honest here, Iíve set up a few and they are one of my least favorite bows Iíve had my hands on. Even with the bow set up properly pumping a 500 grain arrow they still seem remarkably loud imo. They also have a little more hand shock than Iím accustomed to. There are better bows out there at the same price point I would look at for used equipment.

I still shoot a creed xs and love it. Compact and shoots smooth, not as smooth as a carbon defiant but no complaints out of me. Always killed what i was shooting at

Love mine. I wouldn't take $400 for it. I also own a Triax. Love them both.

I’ve got one hanging in the closet now. I think mine is pretty quite. I like for a climbing tree stand bow because it’s so short. I love the thing. I wanted another one to shoot more since mine has been signed by Matt McPherson.

Maybe my experience was more common than I thought, but mine sounded terrible.

I wouldnít sell you mine for that. Got no complaints other than my own abilities. My groups started to open up a bit more than I liked with the creed xs at longer ranges so I bought a halon 32 for my last elk trip. I alternate now when hunting locally and carry the creed for a backup on out of state hunts.
