This crossbow is a dead on power house!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rob8up Good Purchase
The crossbow is a great bow, but if you buy it get the crank for it because YOU WILL NEED IT! The scope that comes with it works really good.. I was surprised due to the reviews I have read already.. I have hit the arrow on a 40 yard shot using the RED DOT.. But I tell you buy the cranking device no matter what . I had to have it shipped next day and had to pay out the butt, due to I couldn't use it for opening day bow season.. NO WAY TO PULL WITHOUT CRANK... The Reason I have a crossbow, for bow season is do to a dislocated shoulder and that was even hard to try to pull back and why you need a crank .. TRUST ME...............

Rated 5 out of 5 by ree1 GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK
0-35 = 1 dot, 36 to 55 = 2nd dot, 56-75 = 3rd dot. Plenty of speed, goes through front shoulder. Flat and accurate, good enough for me!! Not in the olympics!!

I personally use 20" Easton Powerbolts. They have longer fletchings than the stock Barnett bolts. This gives the Eastons a flatter trajectory over a longer range. It's about a 4in elevation difference @ 40yds meaning: the Eastons hit 4in higher than the Barnetts at that distance. Now, there is a slight tradeoff. The Eastons move slightly slower than the Barnetts for the simple reason a longer fletching produces more drag. But the difference is not that noticeable. Also, in a crosswind, the Eastons will drift more than the Barnetts. That's b/c the longer vanes catch more wind. But, the Eastons are more consistent in their flight behavior due to the longer fletchings. Again, this is not a 'brand issue,' it's fundamental aerodynamic principles. You could pick another brand if you like. I choose longer vanes for higher predictability of bolt flight. Hope that helps.
Not noisy enough to scare the deer away. I had 2 Bucks stand around after i missed on the first shot and reloaded. Then after i shot the second time the buck i didn't shoot stayed around till i got out of the tree.
I do not hunt but have shot my friend's crossbow before. I am interested in buying a crossbow for hobby/recreational purposes such as shooting a targets. Which crossbow would you recommend for this purpose? I have been looking at a few Barnett Crossbow, the Wildcat C5 in particular.
I opened the package the sales rep gave me and installed the broadheads, only to find out they were a little longer. Any issues with this? I presume the sales person did so, so I could have the broadhead extend beyond the bow a little?
Yes, but with EVERY change in either Length of BOLT or WEIIGHT of Broadhead, you must re-zero your sights. I failed to re-site in after changing to an Easton Shaft with a broadhead that came with the Bow and was 16" high at 30 yards. AND I missed a nice Hog due to it.
Say homey 125 grain is the recommended but you can go with 100's or 125's or I even have sum 140's. So its all good/ By the way what are you hunting up your way. I mean I could come up for a world class whitetail hunt in Ontario.
