Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernMDHunter Deadly Accurate!!!
I'm going into my second hunting season using the Barnett Quad 400. Let me tell you after putting it together and making sure all the strings are lubed and the rail as well, I have had NO issues what so ever. The scope was a little off out of the box so there was some minor adjusting that was needed. I have shot this bow over 50 times from practice along and it has shown no signs of wear and tear. I shot a deer from 30 yards away down range and it ran 25 yards and dropped. I only have two complaints one is that the scope doesn't shoot very well in low light. I plan on upgrading the scope to be able to get those deer that come out early in the morning or right before dark. My other complaint is that finding a hard case for the bow isn't easy because of the height of the scope. I could just be looking in the wrong place. I'm open to new info if anyone has any. Other than those two things this bow is a great buy for the money. I will definitely recommend this bow to anyone on the fence about purchasing it.

I have read many reviews on this bow, some negative, but most positive. I bought this bow In October of 2013 and have probably shot it over 200 times.. Some reviews claim that the bolts shoot high and the scope don't match the distance,,. I have experienced the same thing., My fault because I am using 100g tips instead of the 125g that are recommended. Some claimed they had broken or cracked limbs, this is usually due to using a bolt/tip combination that isn't heavy enough or dry firing... I read where the scopes get loose, never had this problem. I put the bow together and insured that ALL screws were tight before to start using it. I also make sure to keep the rail and strings waxed ever 5 to 7 shots. I read where there was trouble getting it to fire, or taking it off of safety. I had this issue also. Again, my fault. If the bolt isn't pushed back all the way to the back, it will not come off of safety, therefore you can not fire it,. Another complaint from some others was the bolt guide breaking,. It comes with an extra one just in case and they are usually broken from not placing the bolt flat before to slide it back. The bow is heavy and long, I feel it is better for stability and accuracy. Hand cocking is hard but is to be expected when pulling on 150lbs and the cocking ropes require you to pull up to your shoulders, Only way to improve this would be to shorten the rope. The butt plates do start popping off after a while and when I install the cranking device, that should take care of that problem. It is a little loud but the speed makes up for it.. I used it for the 2013-2014 deer season and harvested 3 deer at 40 yards using the bolts that came with it with 100gr Rage broadheads. Every shot broke bones on impact and exit. One even went through the shoulder blade on exit. I would recommend this bow to anyone. Make sure everything is tight and the strings stay waxed and you shouldn't have any issues with it.

Great for hunting zombies. Silent and deadly. Because we all know silence is key when killing zombies.

I purchased this item the same day Bass pro was awarding 500 bonus points and I asked if I would be able to get the free points since I spent so much money so much the same day the offer was being offered but I was denied.
