Product Review: Killer Instinct Crossbows


My first impression of the Killer Instinct 350 was its light weight and compact size. Swinging the bow was easy and the feel instinctive, exactly the kind of gear a deer hunter needs when that big buck suddenly appears. I watched several people shoot the bow at the range and then asked to cock it before shooting. Using a standard cocking rope, the bow pulled up easily and clicked into the shooting position. Raising the bow, I squeezed the trigger and the bolt launched. This new bow had all of the elements a hunter needs and the trigger is first class and a pleasant surprise.

POMA 2014 033Personally, I find that most crossbow triggers range from bad to terrible, either taking a ton of pressure to launch or so much creep that a buck will have come and gone before the bow fires. Jason Reid, communications manager, was on hand and touted the price of the bow at $499. “The bow is topped with a bright scope and should be out by early summer,” he said. A lot of deer will regret that news.
