Barnett Predator Crossbow, Review:
Our 2010 review of this crossbow did find that the Barnett Predator Crossbow is a High Velocity Crossbow, with minimum Arrow Drop out to 40 yards. This crossbow did make its advertised velocity of 375 feet per second right out of the box and can quite easily exceed this velocity with minimum effort. With a slight change in arrow weight velocity jumped to 380 Feet Per Second.
The Barnett Predator Crossbow is the most powerful crossbow that Barnett manufactures, the fit and finish on the Barnett Predator crossbow is quite impressive. The stock with its adjustable length of pull allows it to be adjusted to whatever the user needs for a very comfortable and relaxing fit, which does aid in overall field accuracy.
The Barnett AVi (Anti-Vibration Insulation) works unbelievably well for such a powerful crossbow as the Barnett Predator. The AVI system not only works on cutting down vibration, but it really lowers Predator's noise footprint. It is a remarkable achievement considering the high arrow speed the Barnett Predator crossbow produces.
In our accuracy tests of the Barnett Predator crossbow again coupled with the use of good optical sights and matched grade 22 inch arrows, accuracy was well above board for a high velocity crossbow. One of the reasons for the extreme accuaracy is, the crossbow is heavy therefore more stable during arrow acceleration.
The Barnett Predator Crossbow accuracy tests of the 2010 predator crossbow yielded sub 2" groups at 75 yards, with 1 1/2" more the average than the exception. All accuracy tests were conducted using only the supplied rope cocking device that is supplied with each Barnett Predator Crossbow, which reduces spanning of the crossbow by 50%.
Truly the key feature to the success of the Barnett Predator Crossbow is the fully adjustable stock; length of pull and cheekpiece. Once adjusted to the user the crossbow shoulders and balances more like a premier trap shotgun. A little heavy in the front but centers well in the forehand palm, aiding its accuracy in field use.
