The Predator is Barnett’s fastest and most powerful crossbow ever. Featuring a full carbon step-through riser, one-off ventilated composite stock and a machined aluminum flight track, the lightweight Predator combines a 187-pound draw weight with a deep, 16.25" power stroke to generate blistering speeds up to 430 fps and a whopping 156 foot-pounds of kinetic energy. But speed and power are nothing without accuracy. Powerful compound crossbows tend to be nose-heavy and challenging to steady. Barnett addresses this in the thundering Predator with their step-through Carbonlite riser and RUCS (Retractable Underarm Counter-Balance Support) System.
The Carbonlite riser effectively shifts 53% of the Predator’s overall weight from the riser to the stock for greatly improved handling and balance, while the RUCS employs a clever foldable arm that extends from the stock and hooks under the user’s arm to provide maximum stability. While the weight at the front of the crossbow pushes down, the pressure from the RUCS pushes the back of the bow up into the user’s arm. These counteracting forces result in less fatigue, rock-solid shouldering, increased control and, ultimately, unmatched repeatable accuracy.
Barnett’s premium 1.5-5 x 32mm illuminated scope further enhances the Predator’s performance and accuracy, as does its crisp, three-pound TriggerTech trigger system – the finest available on any production crossbow. Frictionless Release Technology employs a unique, free-floating roller between the trigger and sear, instilling confidence and boosting accuracy through an incredibly smooth and light three-pound trigger pull with zero creep. Nock sensors and ADF (anti-dry fire) keep a spring-loaded safety bar in place until the arrow is properly seated, protecting the user and the bow from accidental dry fire.
Predator’s apex features continue with string dampeners, a rubber butt pad, pass-through foregrip, four Picatinny rails and a streamlined side-mount quiver that detaches with the simple press of a button. Best of all, the top-performing Predator comes out of the box mostly assembled, requiring the installation of just a single bolt to become range- and hunt-ready.
