Duncan, I've used a TX but currently own its prettier counterpart, the Prosport which in reality is very similar to handle, maybe slightly lighter at the front end.
I also own an AA S200 with a choice of AA 10 shot or CZ 5 shot bar mag.
As you would expect they are totally different rifles and I've found their uses are different. The PS is a fantastic gun for target shooting, benchrested or off sticks, seated, kneeling or standing it will put in groups to match many PCPs. It's my 1st choice for pigeon decoying or static shooting over rabbit warrens. However, it's not a rifle for standers unless you're of a hefty build, it needs a consistent hold every time. It's easy to work on if you need to but in well over 100,000 shots mine has only failed once and that was down to a spring snapping.
Now the S200 is a different beast, short and light and supremely accurate, fitted with the same barrel as the earlier AA EV range I believe. Shot count isn't huge and that can be a drawback if you're target shooting, especially if you're filling with a pump!
As a hunting rifle it's a cracker, ideal for those walkabouts in the woods or for me, driving around the fields shooting from the car. So each has its use in my armoury, each has its strongpoints and weakpoints.
Prosport (or TX) superb for targets and hide shooting, good off sticks but heavier than a PCP.
S200 (or other PCP) Lighter, lowish shot count, needs filling often if shooting targets but a great little rifle.
Just to make the choice even more difficult, have a look at the CZ website and feast you eyes on the CZ 200 Hunter version, different stock, bigger air tube and a gauge built in.
Regards
Tim

Saw this in another post. If you want PCP, this would be hard to beat as it is ambi as well.

You can easily have a front barrel weight/stripper made that has dovetails in it for a front sight.
