If you are looking for one of the most powerful crossbows on the market, the Barnett Ghost 410 CRT could be the best crossbow for you. This beast produces enough kinetic energy to take down anything you could possible want to hunt on earth. A full grown male elephant is no competition for the amount of Fpower you get out of the Ghost 410.
On top of being powerful, Barnett did a great job of making sure you have plenty of accuracy at your disposal as well. Combined with the insane power, a goof crossbow hunter should have pretty good accuracy up to 75 yards away. That makes this the perfect weapons for those that are looking to sit back and wait in a blind for your target to come to you.
I may have mentioned this once or twice, but this crossbow is crazy powerful. It is so powerful that I would not suggest you buy this for anyone that is not an experienced crossbow hunter. Handing this bad boy to a beginner could be like handing a loaded gun to a wild monkey and hoping for the best.
When it comes down to the numbers, the Ghost 410 CRT can launch your arrow at up to 410 Feet Per Second. That is more than any other Barnett crossbow on the market and one of the highest of the entire market.
Barnett is known for producing some of the best quality crossbows on the market. To ensure that you are happy with your crossbow for years to come, they also back it up with a 5 year warranty.
As for the Ghost 410 specifically, you will need to make sure that you pay extra attention to maintenance. If you do not wax and clean, you are going to do a bunch of damage in a hurry.
With this much power, you should expect to see a crossbow that weighs only 7.3 lbs. That puts this crossbow in the top tier of lightweight crossbows and saves you some back pain this season.
Another piece to consider with mobility is that most of the weight is in the back of the crossbow, balanced on your shoulder. That gives you a much most stable and comfortable shot when you are out on the hunt instead of shooting at a range. All the power in the world won’t matter if you can’t line up the shot properly.
With a rating of 410 FPS, Barnett had to make sure that this crossbow is as safe as can be. They made sure to include an automatic safety and anti-dry fire mechanism in the construction of the Ghost 410 CRT. Make sure that you pull the crossbow string back until the second click to make sure that it is engaged.
It was hard for me to determine the value of this crossbow because it is so expensive and its hard to justify spending this much money on anything. That being said, it really depends on your intentions for the crossbow.
If you are an occasional crossbow hunter that is going to use this once or twice a year to hunt a few turkeys in “the back 40”, than this is probably not the best value for you. You would be spending a ton of money of something that is way more than you need and their might not be anything left of the turkey when you are done with it!
If you are someone that frequently hunts large game, this is a very good value for you. It has more power then you could possibly ask for and Is built to give you many years of hunting.
