If a crossbow is on your fall gear list, consider two new options from Barnett:
The RAZR is the perfect marriage of efficiency, speed and balance – and at a mere 6.4 pounds it might seem surprising that this feature-packed bow can still product speeds up to 400 fps. The industry’s first full carbon stock paired with Barnett’s proprietary Carbonlite Riser Technology (CRT) drastically reduces weight while it’s titanium side torque plates ensures long-lasting strength second to none. The reverse cam system allows an increase in speed and power stroke, while not extending the overall length of the bow. To keep everything balanced, the RAZR has a retractable underarm support system that adds counterbalance stability to the rear of the bow, giving it the most balanced feel of any crossbow on the market. In addition to everything else, tucked away in the stock is an integrated and concealed gut hook/skinning knife. The RAZR is by far the most innovative and technologically advanced crossbow on the market.
Weighing in at just 7.3 pounds and only 19 7/8″ axle to axle, the Ghost 410 is no doubt a game changer. It may be lighter and faster than its predecessor, the Ghost 400, but the 410 has maintained some of its most impressive features. Like the 400, the 410 features Barnett’s proprietary Carbonlite Riser Technology (CRT), which shifts the balance point away from the riser and back to the shoulder of the shooter. Barnett’s unique patent-protected, ultra-light, super-strong Carbonlite riser boasts an incredible 5-to-1 safety factor and provides the perfect balance of weight and speed. The Ghost 410 is the first piece of equipment to ever win both the “Editor’s Choice” and “Great Buy” awards from Outdoor Life magazine. If you want fast and you want performance then the Ghost 410 is your choice.
