Texas turkey hunters wanting to try something different this spring should think about hunting with a crossbow. Try putting  an extra challenge into the hunt when you sit next to your corn feeder waiting on that big gobbler.

Designed for the serious turkey hunter, the Barnett Blackspur crossbow is built to give you that confidence. Barnett knows that at the moment of truth, failure is not an option.

Reliability is a hallmark of Barnett crossbows, and the Blackspur makes use of light-weight, top-quality components that have proven themselves in field conditions, from the composite flight track and magnesium riser to the patent-pending bristle retainer to the metal-injected trigger.

Although reliability is critical for turkey hunters, turkey hunting itself places other demands on a crossbow. Whether you are running and gunning or sitting in a ground blind, a bulky, heavy crossbow unacceptable. Too many times in turkey hunting you have seconds to set up on an incoming bird. Bulky gear, especially your weapon, only complicates things. Turkeys are complication enough – you don’t need more of it from your gear. That’s why the Barnett Blackspur components have been integrated into an extremely compact and lightweight package. The Blackspur is only 17 inches from limb tip to limb tip, and it weighs only 6.2 pounds – not only extremely lightweight for a compound bow, but a full pound lighter than most shotguns designed for turkey hunting.

The compact design, light weight and the bristle retainer all help the hunter make those critical last-minute adjustments when the bird finally steps into view. The red dot scope, which is included in the Blackspur package, allows for quick and accurate target acquisition at the moment of truth.

The compactness of this bow does not force you to compromise speed or power, either. The Blackspur will send a bolt down range at 330 feet per second with 97 foot-pounds of kinetic energy. The turkey won’t have a chance.

The truth about great design is that often you don’t notice it. A well designed tool is made so that you don’t have to think about it – it just works. And in the excitement of the final few seconds of the hunt, you won’t notice that the Blackspur’s finger minders and pass through grip allow you a steady and safe hand on the bow. You won’t notice that the adjustable butt pad has allowed you to fit the bow to you rather than adjust yourself to the bow. But they’ll be doing their job, just like the rest of the bow, so you can do yours.

In addition to the red dot scope, the Blackspur comes with a rope cocking device, a lightweight quiver, lubewax. The bow itself is available in realistic camo.

Features:

  • CNC Machined 7/8″ Picatinny Rail
  • Bristle Retainer (patent pending)
  • Custom Composite Laminated Limbs
  • Finger Reminders and Pass-Through Foregrip
  • Lightweight Composite Stock
  • Crosswire® String and Cable System
  • Adjustable Butt Pad
  • HD Custom Lifestyle Finish

The RAPTOR FX crossbow proves you don’t have to spend a fortune for quality and performance

When the Barnett engineers got together to begin work on the RAPTOR FX crossbow, they had very specific goals in mind: Accuracy, Lethality, Shootability, Comfort, Affordability and Value. Refusing to give an inch on any one of those qualities, they created a crossbow that blew hunters’ minds while blowing through deer and other game animals.

The RAPTOR FX has been getting rave reviews from hunters and just recently received the 2016 American Hunter “Bow of the Year” award as part of NRA Publications’ Golden Bullseye Awards. The coveted Golden Bullseye Awards are given to hunting and shooting products that offer exceptional quality, innovation and value to consumers.

“We are thrilled to receive the 2016 American Hunter ‘Bow of the Year’ award, and we’re proud of the exceptional value the RAPTOR FX offers to hunters,” said Pete Angle, Vice President of Marketing at Plano Synergy. “We strive to make the best and most innovative crossbows at every price point, and the RAPTOR FX is a great example. This crossbow is proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get superior quality and performance.”

The RAPTOR FX represents the perfect sweet spot for in-the-woods lethality and smooth shooting. With a comfortable 150-pound draw, this hunting machine produces an impressive 330 fps arrow speed and 97 pounds of kinetic energy! And at just 6.5 pounds, it’s a breeze to carry afield and maneuver in the stand.

Custom Composite Laminated Limbs are powered by Barnett’s exclusive Crosswire® String and Cable System for power and efficiency, and the lightweight composite stock is topped with a CNC-machined 7/8″ Picatinny rail for solid and reliable scope mounting. An adjustable butt pad creates a custom fit for shooters of any size.

For 2016, the crossbow is being dubbed the RAPTOR FX2 and will be updated with Barnett’s new patent-pending Bristle Retainer and high-definition camouflage finish. Safety features include an anti-dry fire trigger, finger reminders and pass-through foregrip.

The Barnett RAPTOR FX2 is available through retailers as a complete package including the crossbow, a quick-detach quiver, three 20″ Headhunter arrows and either a premium red dot sight or 4×32 Multi Reticle Scope.

Barnett RAPTOR FX2 Features:

  • Bristle Retainer (patent pending)
  • CNC Machined 7/8″ Picatinny Rail
  • Custom Composite Laminated Limbs
  • Finger Reminders and Pass-Through Foregrip
  • Lightweight Composite Stock
  • Crosswire® String and Cable System
  • Adjustable Butt Pad
  • High Definition Camo Finish
  • 17″ Limb Tip to Limb Tip
