The Vengeance crossbow by Barnett features a carbon riser and reverse limb technology, making it one of the fastest and most powerful models on the market. Each Vengeance package will come with three twenty-two inch arrows, a quiver, scope, field tips and rope cocking device.
Assembly And Main Features
The Vengeance is another of Barnett’s crossbows that can be difficult to assemble. You may need some help if you’ve never assembled a crossbow before. It can be extremely difficult to line up all the parts correctly and will require a bit of pressure. Some users recommend using a rubber mallet. The instruction manual also lacks in detail, with instructional photos that leave much to be desired. If you have no luck assembling the Vengeance, take it down to your local sporting goods store and pay to have a staff member assemble it for you. This will definitely save you a lot of time and frustration.
Featuring 140 draw weight and reverse limb technology, this model shoots to destroy. The arrows shoot off at 365 FPS, with the arrow propelled into the target using 118ft pounds of KE. Powerful enough to rip through even compressed foam targets at twenty yards, the Vengeance will definitely be able to take down large game easily and humanely.
This crossbow is impressively accurate, allowing the user to shoot one-inch groupings from thirty yards. At fifty yards the user can maintain one and a half inch groupings and three-inch groupings at seventy-five yards.
Shooting Power for this Barnett Crossbow
The Vengeance is very accurate due to the reverse limb technology. You won’t find any frontal heaviness with this bow, which means there’s nothing to pull your aim down or up when shooting.
Described as a hunting monster, this Barnett crossbow packs enough power for any size of game. With 118ft pounds of KE, your shots have enough power to drive clean through a large moose.
Smaller than a compound bow, this crossbow’s compact design makes it ideal for long hunting excursions.
Cocking a reverse limb crossbow will definitely take some getting used to. As you cock it, you’ll notice the string go in a direction that’s the opposite of what you’d expect. The bow’s draw is exceptionally smooth, especially if you use the rope cocking device.
Shorter consumers had complaints regarding the difficulty of cocking this bow. If this is an issue for you, simply cut the rope. Rope cocking devices usually come in only one size and are designed for users around six feet tall. Because of this, most users will need to determine how much of the rope is needed, then cut it down to that size. An easy process, if you’re unsure of the length you need, speak with staff at your local sporting goods store. If you don’t want to cut the rope, you can purchase a Barnett hand crank device, which mounts on the butt and works better than the rock cocking device.
