If you are trying to find a high-quality crossbow this year for your hunting needs, you're in the right place. This review will breakdown the top 3 best crossbows from one of the premier brands on the market today, the Barnett Crossbow.
For those that have just stumbled onto the crossbow scene for the first time, while it may seem a bit overwhelming at first, know that crossbows are incredibly easy to use when compared to that of a hunting or composite bow. While not the same as a rifle, the crossbow, in particular the Barnett Crossbow, is fairly accessible to handle and used by many people especially during the hunting season.
Rather than go over the entire catalog, we will be looking at and reviewing the top 3 best Barnett Crossbows and how they stack up against one another.
1. HyperGhost 405
An incredibly lightweight piece of hunting equipment, the Hyperghost 405 weighs in at an insane 7.7 pounds. It can fire shots up to 405 feet per second and has an axle to axle width of 17.6 inches.
This Barnett Crossbow has a single bolt assembly for a quick and easy setup, compatible with the Barnett Crank Cocking device. It comes ready to hunt with 3 22 inch Hyper Flite Arrows, Illuminated Scope, Rope Cocking Sled, and Lube Wax.
The Hyperghost has a machined aluminum flight track and string dampeners pre-installed for maximum silence and accuracy.
2. Whitetail Pro STR
For those that are interested in having a bit more power in their shots, the Whitetail Pro STR fires at 400 feet per second. While that is slightly less than the smaller Hyperghost, what it lacks in reach it makes up for in power. Its power stroke is at 16.375 inches and has the kinetic energy of over 140 pounds. Its draw weight is at 187 pounds, making it quite the hard hitter.
The Whitetail Pro comes with a premium 4x32 illuminated scope, lube wax, two 22 inch "Headhunter Arrows", a rope cocking device, and a side mount quiver. This crossbow also has a patented step-through riser and string dampeners to allow for stealth shooting.
In regards to its safety, the Whitetail Pro is equipped with an Anti-Dry Fire Trigger System as well as finger guards and a nock sensor.
3. Whitetail Hunter II
For the less experienced out there looking for a starting point in the crossbow world, the Whitetail Hunter II is probably your best bet. This crossbow can fire at a respectable 350 feet per second and has a draw weight of 150 pounds. It weighs in at just under 6.5 pounds and has an axle to axle width of 16.125 inches.
Like all of the Barnett Crossbows, the Whitetail Hunter is made in the US and ships mostly assembled. It comes with Trigger tech technology with a 3-pound zero-creep release.
This lightweight crossbow comes with two 20 inch "Headhunter Arrows", lube wax, and a 4x32 scope along with a rope cocking device. Its Anti-Dry Fire Trigger system works perfectly to eliminate dry fires.
