i want to get a cross bow for my son i was looking at the barnnet gost 350 or the barnnet preditor. both have an adf trigger system witch is a must both r around the same price. if u had to chose what one would you guys and girls go with??? please list pros and cons thank u in advance for any help.
i dont own one and have lttle experence with them just want to get my boy a good one and out when its still worm iv archery hunted for the last 15 yrs compound bow. ground blinds r new to me to. i took him out last yr and set in one a couple days. any suggestions on brands with the same safty features would b great thank u agen.
The Strykezone 350 would be a few dollars more, but it's a good choice. Very light weight. Safety is a little tricky because it uses a double safety. $629 for the package
Wicked Ridge Invader also a few dollars more, but dead solid reliable. $549 for the scope package
Hickory Creek Draw Loc combined with a Winchester Thunderbolt. He could shoot it vertical when he wants and convert it to a locked and loaded bow easily. This is the best of both worlds if he will eventually want to switch to verticals. $499 for the package
I like the Ghost 350. Quiet and well balanced. Barnett package gives you everything but broadheads, even lube for the string and a rope cocker!
Barnett customer service has been perfect in my dealings. Let me know if you have any questions.
man iv bin looking around at some diff brands and makes. still cant fig out what is best and safest for him. from what i seen ill prob b ordering it off the net though checked out the local outdoor store but u ever notice there not mutch help just try to push u to spend more money then u want. no dought they might b a better product but thats not what i want to spend.... anyhow my sons 10 yrs old 84lbs about 60in tall. he has a compound bow that he loves to shoot with a 18lb draw weight but that wont even scratch a deer. im willing to spend up to 600 bucks i want somthiong that will last and is safe his younger sister will prob b useing it in a couple yrs also. i looked back through the harvest photos with kids in them but realy cant make out the type of crossbows in the pichters. thanks aggen for any help
The best advice I can give you is to call Arrowhead (Mike) on here. He can help steer you in the right direction. Click on his profile above to get his contact info. He has very good pricing also. You may want to visit his store to get your hands on some different ones too. Most of us on the crossbow forum have bought our crossbows from him.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
