CenterPoint Sniper 370
The first thing you should know about this model is that the instruction manual is very vague. With that said, if you’ve ever assembled a crossbow before, you shouldn’t have any problems. If you’re an absolutely newbie to the weapon, though, I’d recommend having your local bow tech set it up for you. Once you’ve got your scope sighted in, you’ll be ready to find out what kind of tack driver this crossbow really is.
And I do mean tack driver;… easily able to maintain 1-inch patterns from 30 yards, and 1.5-inch patterns at 40 yards. This is a mean, lean, arrow-flinging machine. But what about power? How does 370 FPS firing velocity sound? That’s with my 423-grain arrows, meaning this baby deals out 128 ft-lbs of kinetic energy. That’s almost twice the KE recommended for tackling the toughest game, like Cape buffalo and grizzly bears. Yes, it’s that powerful.
Barnett Outdoors BCR Recurve Crossbow
This is the crossbow in its purest form. With minimal moving parts and an overall simplistic design, the Barnett Sports & Outdoors BCR Recurve Hunting & Archery Crossbow, includes 3 Barnett Headhunter Arrows by Easton & Quiver is incredibly user-friendly. You c**k it, you shoot it thats it. Dont be fooled by that simplicity. This is an old-school design, but it features modernized technology for superior performance.
The Barnett BCR Recurve Crossbow… is ideal for hunting small animals and recreational target practice. The crossbow features a 150 lb draw weight and shoots at a speed of 245′ per second with 65 ft.-lbs. of kinetic energy behind every shot. The anti-vibration foot stirrup makes it quieter to shoot, too. The finger safety reminders, Soft-Lok Floating Bristle Arrow Retainer and anti-dry fire trigger system provide a triple dose of protection to keep you and those around you safe.
The lightweight composite stock of the Barnett Sports & Outdoors BCR Recurve Hunting & Archery Crossbow, includes 3 Headhunter Arrows & Quiver makes shouldering and operating the crossbow easier while increasing the agility and strength of the bow; and the picatinny rails hold your quiver and red dot sight in place both of which come supplied in your accessory package.
Carbon Express Blade X-Force Blade Crossbow
Well, to make a long story short (before you read the details) the X-Force Blade crossbow is entry level ONLY in its price. It has all of the features that a demanding hunter expects. Maybe not for elephants, but then most of us aren’t as proficient as Fred Bear.
Mary’s crossbow… of choice has been the Covert 3.4 Muddy Girl, a superbly engineered piece of equipment that is outstanding in every aspect. As such, the X-Force Blade had a high standard to meet and it does.
Both the butt-stock and foregrip are adjustable which permits the user to customize the unit to their individual requirements. The “ready to hunt” kit comes with all of the hex wrenches required for all adjustments and as well as necessary for servicing of the crossbow. The cams are cast and precision polished to insure flawless operation. They operated with the same smoothness as found on the Covert 3.4.
barnett Recruit Terrain Crossbow, 330 FPS
This is a compact crossbow so be aware that if you have a large frame you may need a custom stock extension to work with it. If not, look after it, maintain it well, and you can’t go far wrong with one of these.
This crossbow is compact… and light and primarily designed with a stock that should be more compatible with women or smaller framed users such as large boys or smaller men. Get or make a custom extension for the stock however and this compact unit can be used by anyone.
With 91.9 ft lbs (2017 model) of kinetic energy this bow will work for target shooting and hunting pretty much anything from turkey right up to grizzly bears albeit at a reduced effective distance for larger game.
SAS Troy 370 Compound Crossbow 4×32 Scope
They’re back with another bargain. The 2017 SAS Authority is a great buy for anyone looking for a decent entry level crossbow bow that isn’t under powered. This compound has split limbs, picatinny rail, a 4×32 mm scope and comes with arrows and a quiver. At 340 fps and 175 lbs you’ll be hard pressed to find anything else with this much performance at this price point.
SAS have been consistently producing… quality archery gear of all sorts since 2007. They tailor many of their products towards the entry level spectrum of users and manage to continually give a good level of quality for a great level of price. They’ve had some real successes with things like the Spyder recurve bow that we think topples the previous best in breed (the Sage). Let’s see what we make of the new for 2017 SAS Authority.
With approximately 97 ft lbs of kinetic energy shooting a 380 grain bolt this bow is suitable for hunting all sizes of game right out of the box. You can easily increase that bolt weight to gain even more stopping power at closer ranges should you need it.
Barnett Jackal Crossbow
Compound crossbows incorporate a set of cams or wheels into the limb assembly. The end result may look more complicated or intimidating than their recurve cousins, but compound crossbows actually offer more power and speed. The design also reduces vibration, which in turn reduces noise. The addition of two cables in the cams means that maintenance on a compound bow is slightly more time-consuming than a recurve bow, which only has a singular string.
For generations, hunters have looked… to Barnett for durable and dependably engineered compound crossbows. Continuing this tradition, Barnett’s 2017 flagship line features all-new innovative and versatile features like TriggerTech responsive triggers and advanced brush retainers to equip every hunter for success. Because for us, excellence is never optional. And like our hunters, we settle for nothing less.
barnett Recruit Terrain Crossbow
For many years, the Barnett Recruit was the undisputed crossbow for beginners who desire a “grow with” type of crossbow. Nowadays, even with new competitors, the Recruit line from Barnett still among the best if not THE best youth crossbow and best crossbow for smaller frame archers at such competitive price on the market. To support this argument, have a look on our Top 5 crossbows – Best Youth Crossbows to compare its main competitors.
The Recruit Black is, according to me,… the top of the line crossbow from the Barnett Recruit line. In fact, the Recruit is offered in several models with different colors, velocities and draw weights to answer any users need. However, Barnett will bring two new models for 2017 called Barnett Recruit Tactical and the Barnett Recruit Terrain.
Another from the Recruit line is the Barnett Recruit 60 Crossbow that comes in green-black camo. This crossbow is 60 lbs. of draw weight and also comes with a rope cocking device. The Recruit 60 delivers 195 FPS which generates 34 ft-lbs. of kinetic energy with 400 grains bolts. Clearly designed for smaller size archers, this crossbow will exceed your expectations as a first crossbow.
