When introducing someone to the world of crossbows, make sure the bow fits the person well. Many crossbows are marketed for the youth shooter, but few fill the gap between the youth and adult hunter. The all-new Barnett Recruit is specifically designed to fit the smaller-framed hunter and offers enough adjustment to grow with that hunter.
The perfect size for youth and women, the compact Recruit is easy to handle while still providing enough speed for the hunt. At 300 fps, 140 lb draw, and 80 ft lbs of KE, this bow can take down any game the hunter chooses.
The adjustable cheek piece and butt stock gives the shooter the option to keep the bow as he or she grows while easily making needed adjustments.
Of course, safety is a priority. The Recruit features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as the premium Barnett bows.
Barnett’s high-energy cam system and CROSSWIRE string and cable system contribute to a faster, quieter, more precise shot. The CROSSWIRE string and cable system blends Barnett’s fibers with the industry’s toughest serving materials, ensuring the shooter has the most stable and reliable string in the industry. The ADF (Anti-Dry-Fire) trigger system eliminates unintentional and costly dry fires. The system also boasts a 3.5-pound trigger pull and a revolutionary crank attachment built into the stock, allowing for the easy installation of the optional crank-cocking device. Thanks to the crank-cocking device, the shooter will never need someone else to cock the bow for him or her.
At a price of $299, the Recruit will no doubt make the new hunter in your life happy.
