Leave nothing to chance with the Barnett Vengeance crossbow. Representing a major leap in crossbow evolution, the Vengeance is the first crossbow to combine reverse draw technology with a lightweight CarbonLite Riser. The combination produces a bow with significantly less vibration and noise than a traditional draw crossbow without sacrificing speed or accuracy.
This exceptional new reverse draw configuration shifts the center of gravity closer to the shooter’s body by moving the limb pockets closer to the trigger assembly, while the limbs face forward on the bow. This design arrangement drastically reduces the weight at the front of the crossbow, which is essential for a well-balanced shot.
A CarbonLite Riser assembly further reduces the weight without compromising strength or accuracy. The most technically advanced riser ever created for a crossbow, the CarbonLite Riser removes approximately 43% of weight from the riser, which dramatically shifts the balance point to the shoulder. The reverse draw design coupled with the CarbonLite Riser allows the Vengeance to provide the steadiest and most accurate shot possible.
Decorated in a carbon fiber finish or in a high-definition camouflage, the Vengeance is available through retailers as a complete package with crossbow, quick detach quiver, three 22″ arrows and an illuminated 3×32 Multi Reticle Scope. Like all other Barnett Crossbows, the Vengeance is proudly made in the USA.

Mogadore, OH. – Field and Stream magazine has selected TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ new Turbo XLT II as the winner of their 2012 “Best of the Best Award” in the crossbow category. This is the second straight year TenPoint has received the award. Field and Stream’s “Best of the Best” designations are awarded to new hunting and fishing equipment they select as the top performing and most innovative of the year.
According to Field & Stream magazine, “Three critical factors shot the Turbo XLT II to the winner’s circle. First, the bow was incredibly accurate. Second, it was safe to operate due to an intuitive ambidextrous safety and anti- dry-fire device. Third, the innovative ACUdraw cocking rope (which retracts into the stock, the handles secured by a slick magnet system) was a joy to operate and nearly silent, proof that this is a crossbow for hunters”.
The Turbo XLT II differs from its predecessor in several ways. While it still features a radically compact bow assembly, spanning 13.5-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked, its 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs™ are now double- laminated for improved strength and durability. The bow assembly, fitted with D-75 string and yoked tunable cables powered by NEW MRX™ cams, is mounted on a 7/8″ longer barrel that increases the power stroke to 12.875-inches. This new combination produces a sleek and maneuverable 180-pound crossbow that shoots 345 fps with TenPoint’s NEW Pro Lite™ carbon arrow.
“We are honored that Field & Stream has chosen one of our models for this prestigious award again this year. It’s in our DNA to push our technology and design to higher levels of performance while staying focused on maintaining the highest possible quality,” said TenPoint CEO, Rick Bednar.
The Turbo XLT II comes standard with TenPoint’s 3x Pro-View 2™ Scope and, like all TenPoint crossbows, it features their patented DFI™ (dry-fire-inhibitor) and 3.5-pound PowerTouch™ trigger. Available with or without one of TenPoint’s two patented cocking units, the ACUdraw™ or ACUdraw 50™, the Turbo XLT II is decorated in Realtree APG®.
MAP: $999 with ACUdraw, $899 with ACUdraw 50.
All TenPoint crossbows are USA Owned, Operated, and Manufactured in Mogadore, OH.

Wildgame Nation goes on the first helicopter hunt using crossbows
The most technically advanced crossbow to hit the market, the Ghost 400 is no doubt the flagship of the Barnett line, perfectly blending performance and comfort leaving nothing for want.
The Ghost 400 Carbonlite leads the industry with raw power, shooting at lightning speeds of 400+ fps. This bow features Barnett’s proprietary New Carbon Riser Technology (CRT) and it is by far the lightest and strongest in its class. Barnett has the only patent-protected, ultralight, super-strong Carbon riser available for Crossbows, and it boasts an incredible 5-to-1 safety factor.
The Ghost 400 provides one of the smoothest shots available thanks to the CNC machined aluminum flight track and the 3.5# Trigger pull. Additionally, the Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) trigger assures the safest experience available and delivers maximum accuracy down range . The Ghost 400 is also equipped with Barnett’s over-molded laminated limbs technology called AVI (Anti-Vibration Isolation). This reduces noise and vibration up to 30%. The Crosswire® strings and cable system come standard on the Barnett Ghost 400 while also submitting to Barnett’s proprietary process called Cable Armor. This process increases the longevity of the the strings and cables significantly.
The Ghost 400 package comes with three 22″ custom carbon arrows by Easton, Barnett’s new Talon crossbow sling, the New Carbon Cross® 3-arrow quiver with Hip attachment, a rope-cocking device and finally a premium paper-sighted illuminated scope.
BJ Wolf, brand manager for Barnett Crossbows, explains, “There was a lot of sweat equity put into bringing the Ghost 400 to market, but it was a labor of love. The entire team did an awesome job and was able to keep focus by remembering one of the main goals we have for every project we work on; give the consumer what they want, NOT what you think they want. The Ghost 400 will exceed your expectations all around. ”
