Hot Products from the SHOT Trade Show

351

The Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT) amasses 50,000 industry specialists for the introduction of scores of new products. Griffin’s Guide Editor Joe Byers is attending the show to capture some of the hottest new products and report about them. You must have a Federal Firearms License to get into the show, but here’s a quick (pre-show) look at new products in two categories: crossbows and tree stands. Check them out:

Here’s Barnett’s 2014 Lineup

RAZR
RAZR:
Weighing in at only 6.4 lbs., this remarkable feature-packed bow produces speeds of up to 400 fps. With features like the industry’s first full carbon stock along with Barnett’s proprietary Carbonlite Riser Technology (CRT), the RAZR is extremely lightweight, and thanks to titanium side torque plates, it’s as strong as they come. The reverse cam system provides for an increase in speed and power stroke without extending the overall length of the bow. The retractable underarm support system adds counterbalance stability to the rear of the bow, giving it that balanced feel shooters desire. As if the RAZR didn’t have enough impressive features, the RAZR also features a skinning knife that’s attached to the bottom side of the stock.

Raptor FX
Raptor FX:
The new Raptor FX is perfect for the smaller-framed or up-and-coming hunter. With features from Barnett’s other popular bows, and speeds up to 330 fps, the Raptor FX is ready for any big game animal. The adjustable cheek piece and butt stock allow the shooter to keep the bow as he or she grows, while easily making needed adjustments. As always, safety is a priority. The Raptor FX features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as other premium Barnett bows. The Raptor FX makes the perfect crossbow for the beginning hunter.

Ghost 360
Ghost 360:
If it’s the incredible balance of speed weight and size you’re looking for, look no further than the Ghost 360. Its compact design is perfect whether you’re hunting out of a stand or a blind, and it still brings the heat at 360 fps! Weight won’t be an issue either, thanks to the patented CarbonLite Riser, which gives this bow perfect balance at only 7.0 lbs. As always, safety is a priority, and the Ghost 360 features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as the other premium Barnett bows. Head to the stand with confidence this season thanks to the Ghost 360!

Recruit Compound
Recruit Compound:
Many crossbows are designed and marketed for the youth shooter, but few fill the gap between the youth and adult hunter. The Barnett Recruit not only fits the smaller-framed hunter, but it offers enough adjustment to grow with that hunter. Ideal for youth and small women, the compact Recruit is easy to handle while still providing plenty of speed and power for the hunt. With safety as a priority, the Recruit features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as other premium Barnett bows. At 300 fps, 140-lb. draw, and 80 ft. lbs. of KE, the Recruit can take down the game animal of choice.

Brotherhood
Brotherhood:
When Barnett got together with the boys from The Brotherhood to help design a new bow, they knew something awesome was going to come of it. At only 7 lbs., this bow is producing speeds up to 350 fps with 109 ft/lbs of KE. That’s a lot of power for a compact package. The Brotherhood features Barnett’s high-energy cam system and the Crosswire string and cable system. The Brotherhood comes with Barnett’s ADF trigger system, giving you a smooth 3.5-lb. trigger pull for that perfect shot. The Brotherhood stands ready for whatever game you’ll be chasing this season.
