This crossbow is good in quality, highly accurate, and fairly easy to operate. It is fast, powerful, well balanced, and simple to build. It is also appealing, hits hard, and has a good trigger break.

It costs less than $500, making it a good buy for a hunter on a budget. You do not have to wait a long time for it to arrive in your home either.


You may find that it is quite difficult to cock, even if you use a rope cocker that reduces the pull to 87.5 pounds. You can say that it is a bit on the heavy side since it weighs about 8.5 pounds. So if you are not strong enough, you may not be able to shoot offhand that easily. It is also not available in certain states.


Most Barnett Penetrator reviews are positive, which means that buyers are mostly satisfied with their purchase of this product. This crossbow, after all, is accurate, powerful, and has an innovative design. The set consists of the crossbow, arrows, quiver, and scope. It also has a limited 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.
