With (Quiver, 3 – 20-Inch Arrows and Illuminated 3x32mm Scope)
Hunters are ditching their rifles for crossbows faster than ever thanks to the increasing efficiency of crossbows. This increase in crossbow use is also being caused by the increasing number of states that no longer require people with crossbows to apply for permits. Manufacturers are also starting to make crossbows that are safer, more reliable, and that comply with state and federal laws.
The Barnett Ghost 350 CRT Crossbow is one of the lightest crossbows made by Barnett at 7.5 lbs. The Carbon Riser Technology eliminated weight on the front end and moved the center of gravity at the end of the stock. This crossbow is a high specification tactical crossbow that delivers versatile performance for any purpose. Whether you use the Barnett Ghost 350 CRT Crossbow for target practice, hunting, or for personal defense, you can rest assured that you have a capable piece of equipment in your hands. There are some very compelling reasons why people are falling in love with this crossbow as we shall discuss below.
Barnett Ghost 350 CRT Crossbow Package Features
This is the first crossbow from Barnett to incorporate Carbon Riser Technology which makes it very durable and much lighter. Another engineering first for the manufacturer is an incorporation of AVI technology which utilizes laminated limbs to reduce vibration and noise by up to 30%. This crossbow makes very precise shots thanks to the anti-dry fire metal injection moulding trigger, crosswire strings, and whiplash cams. These features give the crossbow smooth, silent, and accurate shots and a compact profile. Other technical specifications of this crossbow include:
- 175 lbs. draw weight
- 116 foot-pounds of energy
- 12-inch power stroke
- Firing speed of 350 feet per second
- 20-inch arrow length
- 24 inches wide and 37 inches length
- Total crossbow weight of 7.5 pounds
This crossbow has all the features that a stealthy hunter would be looking for when planning to go for a day-long stalking game. This crossbow is very light and well-balanced so it can be easily shouldered and carried all day. What’s more, the balance and light weight increases its accuracy to pinpoint territory. The crossbow can be rapidly reloaded hence increasing the chances of hitting the target. The bow can fire arrows at an impressive 350 feet per second which make it ideal for taking down targets even when they are quite far away.
Apart from its raw shooting power, the crossbow has several other features that make the case for it. For instance, a user can easily use it with flashlights or add several safety measures to prevent accidents.
Despite the crossbow’s advanced design, you can easily assemble it from start to finish in 20 minutes flat. This crossbow also proves that value for money is no longer measured by weight alone since it puts more expensive but significantly heavier crossbows to shame.
Of course, it is not a coincidence how light and effective this crossbow is. Barnett has been making crossbows for many years and with this model, you can see that some serious green goes into R&D. This bow is one of the most accurate ones from the manufacturer due to its sights and three top-notch bolts that come with the package.
The crossbow has a 175-pound draw weight which is on the higher side compared with other crossbows. However, it has a rope cocking device that reduces this draw weight to 87.5 pounds. It is therefore much easier and faster to cock and fire the crossbow. Another great feature of this crossbow is the safety switch which automatically turns on when you start to cock the string.
Although the crossbow fires arrows at 350 feet per second, it is remarkably silent. This makes it a perfect weapon for stalking prey for the 21st-century hunter. The anti-vibration technology used in the crossbow increases its accuracy and also reduces noise when you fire an arrow.
The following are some of the advantages of this crossbow:
- It is very good looking
- Surprisingly easy to assemble
- Very good and accurate shooter
- Great power and shooting velocity
This crossbow is on the heavier side at 7.5 pounds. However, there are other costlier bows that are heavier still. The draw weight is also quite high but the cocking aid remedies that very well. Sometimes the crossbow makes an audible crack when fired but this can be addressed by adding noise suppressors to the draw mechanism. Many people would feel bothered to have to get additional equipment to make the bow more usable.
