When Barnett got together with the boys from The Brotherhood to help design a new bow, they knew something awesome was going to come of it. At only 7 pounds, this bow is producing speeds up to 350 fps with 109 ft./lbs. of KE. That's a lot of power for a compact package. The Brotherhood features Barnett's high-energy cam system and the crosswire string and cable system. The Brotherhood comes with Barnett's ADF trigger system giving you a smooth 3.5 lb. trigger pull for that perfect shot. The Brotherhood stands ready for whatever game you will be chasing this season.

Top Customer Reviews
After my research I decided on a Barnett Brotherhood Crossbow because it is made in the USA and majority of the reviews were positive. I ordered it from Amazon.com because it was priced better than any of the hunting stores. The crossbow was easy to assemble with customer service readily available.
The Brotherhood was easy to sight in and shot awesome. There were a few times I almost “robin hooded” a bolt as they where grouped on top of each other. The Brotherhood surprisingly does have a small kick after you pull the trigger but nothing compared to a rifle.
On the safety side I liked when you cock the bow string the mechanism automatically put the safety on. Also it will not “dry fire” as it needs a bolt to release the bow string.
I used the crossbow all 2015 deer season and killed two does. One at 15 yards and another at 40 yards, both lung shots and exactly where I aimed. I also had several times when the rain would just pour out of no where soaking myself and the crossbow. After drying the bow out and applying some string lube it has held to the test. Between discharging all the practice bolts, hunting bolts, and release grounding bolt (to release the bow string after an unsuccessful hunt) was surprised how accurate, deadly, durable and rugged that this crossbow is.
I would highly recommend this crossbow to anyone who is interested in taking up this awesome way to hunt. Barnett is a division on Plano Corp. which makes all types of fishing and hunting equipment and their customer service is exemplary.
Where the barrel meets the riser there is a male/female connection that locks the riser into place. The issue is that the locking connectors do not line up perfectly, causing a downward compression on the barrel resulting in a slant down on about the last 3-4 inches on the flight track. I didn't notice this until the bow was cocked and loaded with a bolt. As you can see by the photos I posted, the bolt does not sit flat. I assure you it had nothing to do with the arrow retention spring.
As a positive, I did shoot a round of bolts through it and did get a pretty good grouping. However, I still returned the crossbow due to the obvious engineering oversight and fear that this issue could potentially cause problems in the future.
There is a good balance between the weight and over all feel to this crossbow. It's light but doesn't feel flimsy. Being able to grip through the forearm of the crossbow add alot of stability when shooting. The main reason for 5 stars is the accuracy. After 4 or 5 shots, I was dialed in from 20 yards. The other crosshair lines for 30, 40 and 50 yards were right on. I was suprized at the quietness of the bow. I was at the range with a guy that had a $1200 Excaliber crossbow and he couldn't believe my crossbow was quieter than his. (I'm not saying this is better than a excaliber, but for the money it delivered).
If you want a good crossbow without breaking the bank on a ten point or excaliber brand, I would recommend trying this one.
