Barnett Jackal Crossbow Package w/ Red Dot Sight 78404
Product Review (submitted on December 9, 2013):
I think most people will not be able to cock the 150lb crossbow without a cocking rope device, so it would be better if Barnett included it in the kit, especially since no crank device is available fro this bow. I agree the bolt reatiner is a weak link, bolts fall out easily, plasic holder should be metal/plastic so tension can be put on it adequietly. I too have weak eye sight so I plan to replace the red dot scope soon.. However, it was very easy to zero in the crossbow on the top dot for 20 yards and bow shoots very accurately. Haven't tried it futhr out yet. I recomend tis bow for a starter, like me, but if you are going to use regularly spend more $, get a bow that a crank cocker can be added if desired...As you age, (65yrs old) it gets harder to pull cock... For th price it's a great, powerful crossbow.
