CenterPoint Sniper 370

CenterPoint Sniper 370 $293.98

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;MORE 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 78128 Whitetail Hunter II 350

barnett 78128 Whitetail Hunter II 350 $375.99 1

The Barnett Whitetail Hunter was released in 2016 and is a completely new line of crossbows. It has similar specs to the Barnett Quad Edge S but offers a few unique features, and has a different feel. As with most Barnett crossbows,

The limbs are made of a custom compositeMORE laminate making them really durable for cold weather hunting. One unique feature included with the Whitetail Hunter is the adjustable butt pad, so you can find the most comfortable position. Equipped with Barnett’s premium 4×32 scope, you’ll be able to take accurate shots up to 60 yards. Another nice feature is this crossbow comes with a rope cocking device, making it a more inclusive package than others from Barnett.

The Barnett Whitetail Hunter crossbow shoots very well compared against other mid-range crossbows. Since this is a new model, the trigger pull is smooth, and the bolts fire accurately. If you’re hunting within normal conditions, you will be happy with how this shoots for the price you pay. The adjustable butt pad, mixed in with the composite stock and roomy foregrip, you will have no problems finding a comfortable shooting position.

Wicked Ridge by TenPoint Invader G3 Crossbow

Wicked Ridge by TenPoint Invader G3 Crossbow $429.75 1

TenPoint has really upped the game with the introduction of the Invader G3. They have based the Invader G3 on the Invader HP, but have really integrated some great new features. The stock is designed to be semi skeletal, so there is a great savings in weight. The machined aluminum risers also have cutouts specifically engineered to shed a few more ounces as well.

The pass through foregrip gives shootersMORE a solid forehand grip while minimizing the risk of fingers in the string path. Another feature we really liked is the oversized reinforced nylon safety wings. These are quite a bit longer than on most crossbows and really eliminate the chance of fingers or thumbs ending up in the string path.

The Dry Fire Inhibitor ensures the Invader G3 cannot accidently be fired without an arrow in place and the auto safety means that the shooter will always have the safety in the ‘on’ position after cocking, and must manually disengage the safety to fire. Again, great features for both novice users as well as more advanced users. TenPoint has brought a crossbow to market that offers plenty of power to take animals up to the size of deer with ease.

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 lookedMORE 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 Whitetail Hunter Pro Crossbow

If you have been around crossbows before then you would be very impressed by these specs. They are especially impressive when you consider that the relatively low price. Because those are usually the stats you see from the most expensive crossbows.

If you don’t already know,MORE when it comes to hunting, kinetic energy is king. It is the determining factor when it comes to penetration.The requirement for hunting deer is about 40. So that means that with a KE of 122 you are almost guaranteed to achieve full pass-throughs even as far as 50 yards away!

As expected, this weapon has the all too important system called anti-dry fire. Accidentally firing a crossbow leads to severe damage to it and also potential harm to the user. What the anti-dry fire mechanism does is prevent any release from occurring during the time when you c**k your crossbow and place a bolt. You also must manually disengage the safety switch to fire.

SAS Troy 370 Compound Crossbow 4×32 Scope

SAS Troy 370 Compound Crossbow 4x32 Scope $286.94 1

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.

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.
