Top Customer Reviews
I did about a month of research before buying this bow, and I went with the Ghost 360 because it seemed to be the best bang for the buck, in this price range. Reviews I've read seemed to indicate that some Barnett owners had mechanical failure complaints, but most seemed to be based on older Barnett bows. I have fired approx 75 bolts through this bow and have had zero issues, and nothing has come loose. One year after purchase, it is still zeroed in as the day I sighted it in.
The included scope (Cross) doesn't appear to be the best quality optic, but keeps the overall package price affordable, and so far, has been more than serviceable. The reticle has 6 aim points, starting with a 20-25 yard "pin", and going to 50 yards in 5 yard increments. It is also lighted, green or red, which is nice in different lighting levels. I've only had room to practice up to 45 yards, and it's dead accurate at that distance. Consistent 3" groups. Some reviewers seemed to disagree on the distances the pins represented, but these are the distances I personally found to be associated with the pins for this scope. My distances were measured with a range finder, and aiming center-bull.
Trim the cord on your cocking device (included). I am 5' 11" tall and trimmed about a foot or so off the cord. You want to cock the bow with a natural standing motion, not with your arms.
Also, lube the rails and string often. The recommended 5 shot lubing intervals seems excessive, but it's not. There is a lot of friction on the string/cables and lubing regularly will preserve string life. Buy extra lube. It goes rather quickly.
The icing on the cake? Harvested my biggest buck ever with this bow, first year crossbow hunting. 35 yards, quarter-turned away, and this bow threw the Easton Headhunter bolt, with 100 grain Muzzy Trocar fixed broadhead, through the buck so fast I'm not sure he even knew what hit him. Ran 20 yards and....nighty night.
If you're looking at this bow because of what seems to be a great value in this price range, well, it IS. Don't be deterred by negative reviews...I found the tone in many reviews to be that of brand-snobs, or people who just have negative outlook on the Barnett brand because of problems then had with earlier products. I'm sure some had legitimate complaints, but I have none at all.
Enjoy, and happy hunting.
It took me about 30 minutes to read the directions and assemble the crossbow. The scope was perfectly sighted in within 10 shots and all I can say is WOW!!!! The power and accuracy of this bow is amazing. I would definitely recommend spending some time to correctly mount the scope. As other reviewers have said, it can be easy to mount the scope off level and then you would have problems. Taking time to properly mount and align the crosshairs to a plumb vertical and horizontal line (while assuring the bow itself is level) is well worth it. This bow comes with everything you need to get started and even the cocking rope is an excellent addition that makes cocking this bow smooth and easy.
I have gone from never shooting a crossbow to nailing bullseyes in very little time. I would highly recommend anyone to purchase this bow as this is one of the best purchases I've ever made in my life! I don't think you could buy a better crossbow at this price point.
