Rated 3 out of 5 by polecatt Great bow! But.... This bow does not shoot much faster than the Wild Cat C5 and is a ton heavier and much longer. The Wild Cat actually weights in at 5.9 pounds and shoots on avg 335fps I have both bows and am disappointed at the Quads performance. April 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by THart Great Bow Got this cross bow for Christmas for shooting feral hogs. Sighted in with just four bolts. Hogs came up again last night and with one bolt at 40 yards was able to bring down a 200 pound boar. Great cross bow! January 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Keith17 Excellent Crossbow Recently purchased this product, and was highly pleased with its quality and performance. This is the first crossbow I have owned, it is incredibly easy to use. Shoots remarkebly straight, fast and consistently accurate. Also highly impressed with the trigger very smoooth no creep, or jerk at all. Kit comes with everything you need. Would absolutely buy it again for the price. Now the bad the but pads fall off, but I like it better with them off anyway. Also scope it average at best very inconsistent, I upgraded to a Nikon and love it. Scope mounts broke from the shock of the weapon which is impressive. Also it is rather heavy if you are gonna be stalking/hiking with it. Lastly rides kind of wierd on your back with a sling. If you hang the bow with front pointing up it hangs far back off your shoulder and kind of beats you up, and the quiver if all over like that. If you hang it upside down with front twards the ground gets you in back of legs. I take quiver off and wear it barrel upright. Truely love the product, just want others to be aware. December 4, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Woody40 Good and bad My wife purchased this bow for me Oct.2010, and I have killed 2 deer with it. I have shot the crossbow maybe 50 shots,I have waxed the string and keep all bolts tight. Two of the strands on the cable (not the string) have frayed and broken. While sitting in my stand, I heard a loud pop, and after inspecting the crossbow, I see that one 2 of the limps are cracked. I am currently in discussion with Barnett about warranting the limbs. With a $400.00 price tag, this item should last more than 50 shots through it. Don't get me wrong, I love the speed and accuracy. Just a little dissapointed in the craftsmanship. Came with a 5 reticle scope, and it shoots so high fully adjusted that I have to use the third sight line at 10-20 yards, fourth sight line at 30-40 yards. I am curious at some of the other reviews that say theirs shoot low, November 17, 2012

Details:Hello, I do not live near a store to be able to ask questions in person and am stuck having to research online. I am looking to buy my first crossbow and this one seems to have favorable reviews across the board. My question is, is it absolutely required to pay the extra $100 for the crank to go with it, or can the bow be used just fine without the crank? Since I have not used crossbows before, I am still trying to learn all the differences between them and guns/compound bows, so was just wondering if the crank is an absolute must, or simply a way to make things easier. Thanks!
A:I'm 56 years old and I use a crank. It's a booger bear to do it any other way for me. This crank takes all the work out of shooting this big of cross bow.
A:All you need is a cocking rope. Which cost $25-$35. Also dont buy a cocking rope with rollers on it they are loud and you dont need it.
A:the crank is kind of hard to assemble and very loud when you crank it, but besides that it works fine. i had to use it because my arms are too short. if you have short arms or you dont have that kind of strength then yes it is definatly a must.
A:use specific, crossbow scope, they are calibrated for the "fast" drop of arrow.
Also most have lines indicating the 30,40, and 50 yard distances.
Buy the package with the best scope!
A:Yes, any crossbow scope can be used on this crossbow.
A:Yes it has the lines.
I use 125 grain "muzzy"
Be prepared to upgrade to Nikon!
A:Definitely 9 pounds, wish they made a 7 pounder!
A:There is a 5 year warranty from Barrett Crossbows according to their website.
Details:Does this crossbow come with iron sights? Scopes on crossbows are not allowed in Colorado.
A:No, it come with just a scope, and one that doesnt stay on correctly at that.
A:You can get a two pin sight that has a peep. Contact Barnett direct. Hope this helps and good hunting
A:I'm a lefty. Ive shot it both ways just to see if I could. But it's safety is not left handed friendly
A:You will have a safety switch to prevent misfires.
A:yes, it has a metal switch that you must flip forward before firing.
A:Yes it does. In fact it engages automatically when it is cocked.
A:If you lean back in your chair a little and point towards the horizon you should have no problems getting out to 250 yards.
A:I would suggest no more than 50 yards. Longer than that, and the deer will hear you fire, and may jump out of the way.
A:The max distant I have shot and killed is 40 ft. I make it a rule that I wont shoot a cross bow at a distance farther than I would have with my compound
A:I would say 50 yards, anything over that would take lots of practice!
A:The farthest I sited mine in so far is 70 yards, but I shot a doe from 50 yards out last week.
A:I have not shot a deer with it yet but i shot a rabbit at 75 yrds and it was dead on
