Re: Barnett Quad Edge Extreme, reviews/thoughts
I brought the Barnett Quad last fall to see if I would like using a crossbow. I intend on upgrading but in-spite of the neg reviews i was not disappointed with the Quad.
I figured even if I didn't like it it would be something to take out back and let the grand-kids shoot.
I have a little over 500 into the bow counting buying a case, extra bolts, Grim Reaper broad-heads and a Barnett cocking rope.
It took about 15 min to assemble the bow, make sure you use Loc-tite on the bolt that attaches the limb to the stock, it has a tendency to loosen after extended shooting.
I had the option of a 4X or red dot scope, I took the 4X. The optics are not great but they do the job. What you see is what you hit. Mine will hold a 2" group off a mono pod at 40 yards. It took about 10 shots to zero the bow even with the stock scope. The Barnett has a 5 year warranty.
It is loud, but fast and hard hitting. I find it has the same accuracy shot after shot using the cocking rope, but not as consistent when hand pulled. It also has option for a self contained crank system but I did not get that.
For a beginner or entry level it is fine.
