How many of you like to hunt using crossbows? Well if you do you might be discouraged when you look at how much money it costs in order to get a good quality crossbow. The high end crossbows can cost well over a thousand dollars. Then you have the options with premium features you would like to get, but this would bring the price up even more.
What options exist for someone who doesn’t have a huge amount of cash to invest into one of these?
The Wicked Ridge Warrior HL Standard Crossbow Package is a perfect option for people who want something good, but affordable. I’ve tested this bad boy out and I can honestly say that for the money it’s a very good option. One of the reasons I knew it would be good before I even bought it was because of the maker, Ten Point.
In case you didn’t know, Ten Point is a leader in this field and they take what they do seriously. They make these in the United States. This means you never have to worry about quality.
Are you a person that’s looking for a crossbow that’s going to be good for every type of situation? If you are then you are going to be frustrated with a lot of the crossbows you find out there. Most of them are made to be used for specific purposes and in some cases they don’t provide the best solution. The Barnett RC150 is a crossbow that is said to be good for just about any situation you can think of. Not only this, but it’s pretty high quality despite not being expensive.
The Barnett RC150 is extremely powerful and accurate. If you’re a seasoned hunter you are certainly going to appreciate what this crossbow has to offer. But you don’t need to be a seasoned hunter. You could be a beginner who is just learning. If you’re a hunter who needs a crossbow with an adjustable rear stock then this bow is for you. It’s also very lightweight and it’s supported by a very sturdy molded grip, which enables a user to get a firm yet comfortable shooting position.

Anyone who is a serious fan of using crossbows to hunt knows that there are a lot of different brands they can decide to purchase their crossbow from. There are so many choices that at first it might seem like it is not going to make much of a difference where you get your crossbow from, but this is not the case. I have been using crossbows for a long time from Barnett and I can tell you that they make some very high quality crossbows. The Ghost 350 CRT is no exception. Now most of the crossbows I have bought from them in the past were a little bit on the heavy side, and I really did not like this.
With the Ghost 350 CRT however, it is not really heavy at all. In fact is is one of the lightest bows Barnett has ever made. It only weighs about 7.5 pounds. I did some research as to why this was the case and found out that the lightweight is due to a technology called “Carbon Riser Technology”(CRT). This technology is able to remove front end weight and it places the center of gravity on the end of the stock, while also having a five to one safety factor.
Anyone who is a fan of Barnett crossbows knows that they do not make low quality product. One of the reasons why they are such a good brand to purchase from is because they truly care about quality. When I first looked at the Barnett Jackal Crossbow one thing I liked about it right away was the fact that the design is very innovative. The Barnett Jackal Crossbow features a very sleek, military-style stock along with a divided foregrip, which makes for very comfortable hand placement.
There really is not much you have to do in order to get it going. It’s ready to shoot as soon as it comes out of the box. Everything you might need is included. Thee is a quick detach quiver, bolts, and a premium red dot sight.
The quad limb assemble fused with high energy wheels along with a synthetic strong and cable system. This enables the Barnett Jackal Crossbow to produce arrow speeds of about 315 feet per second. The mixture of the lightweight stock and the power this crossbow will provide makes it a very powerful weapon for any serious hunter.
