Red Hot Crossbow Roller Rope Cocker
DOES NOT FIT BARNETT QUAD 400
I bought this cocking device because I decided I didn't want to use the cumbersome crank cocking device that came with my Barnett Quad 400. It takes too long to use and is not always convenient.
I bought this rope cocking device because on the package it said it fit most crossbows including Barnett crossbows. Unfortunately, when I got it home, the way the Quad 400 is designed, it does not fit. The rope cocking "bed" on the 400 is located on the stock butt. The Red Hot rope said it was 42", but the one I bought only measured 35" total length. The 400 probably needs at least a 50" rope in order to work.
I should stress that the product is NOT BAD or of poor quality, it just didn't fit the crossbow I have. Thus, I had to give it two stars.

Accurate & Simple
Since this is my first time using a crossbow I figured it would take a while to learn the ins and outs and obtain some sort of accuracy with it. After 5 shots in the Bass Pro Range I was on target and ready to hit the hunting woods.
Very easy to use and understand and it couldn't be more accurate.
My only complaint is there are a lot of area's that are glossy/shiny that ruin the effectiveness of the "camo finish." That's the case with almost all bows though. A few quick sprays with some flat paint eliminate the problem.

Get what you pay for
You get what you pay for with this. I have a Barnett Quad 400, and although it does work with this, it's a hassle to get it to cock properly. String needs to be longer, and the rollers wider. If not done "just right" then the roller ride up on the rail, and the string will not lock into place. Also very tricky due to the fact that the Quad 400 doesn't have a squared off scope mount. SHoulda bought the Barnett crank made for my X Bow!!!

Great Product ever!!
This is truly one of the best items invented. Way better than an ordinary cocking device. Makes it so much easier to cock.
