Serious whitetail hunter? In the market for a new bow? Feast your eyes on the newest addition to the Hyper series: the Hyper Whitetail 410 Crossbow by Barnett.
The Hyper Whitetail Is Fast and Light
Barnett’s focus on precision, safety and performance have earned the trust of whitetail hunters from all over the country. With over 60 years of experience, Barnett is arguably the world’s premier producer of crossbows. The Hyper Whitetail 410 is built on Barnett’s whitetail hunting heritage. Performance-inspired design and technology make it effective in any whitetail hunting application where extreme stealth is required. The Hyper Whitetail features an extremely narrow riser, reducing the axle-to-axle length to just a hair over nine inches when cocked, and weighing in at a scant 7.6 pounds, it is easily portable and maneuverable in a treestand, ground blind or elevated tower.
With its compact and parallel-limb configuration, the Hyper Whitetail 410 launches its small-diameter HyperFlite arrows downrange with incredible speed—up to 410 feet per second, delivering a bone-crushing 141 pounds of kinetic energy. The parallel-limb design also puts less weight on the front of the crossbow, making for a more stable shooting platform with reduced recoil and vibration.
Accuracy Is the Aim
Like all crossbows in the Hyper series, the Hyper Whitetail 410 is paired with Barnett’s exclusive and patent-pending 22-inch, .204-diameter HyperFlite arrows. The arrow’s 21% increased FOC (front of center) and 61% greater ballistic coefficient reduces wind drift, making for a deadly combination of speed, down-range accuracy and deeper penetration. With a straightness tolerance of +/- .001 inch, Barnett claims their HyperFlite arrows provide more than 25% deeper penetration on impact than the competition. The capture nock increases string-to-nock engagement by 30%, resulting in better accuracy while reducing string wear and eliminating dry fires. Arrows are held secure with Barnett’s Soft Lok Floating Bristle Arrow Retainer System, and a CNC-machined aluminum flight track provides consistency shot after shot.
The Whole Package
The Hyper Whitetail 410 also features a metal-injected molded trigger and TriggerTech Zero Creep Frictionless Release Technology (a $200 value). The TriggerTech trigger provides a reliable, crisp, three-pound pull for consistent shots and improved accuracy. An Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) trigger system is added to ensure the crossbow is loaded correctly.
To top things off, the Hyper Whitetail 410 displays hunter-friendly ergonomics. Finger safety reminders above the pass-through foregrip offer an extra level of safety during the shot. Pre-installed string suppressors reduce recoil, vibration and noise.
The complete package includes a premium side-mount quiver, two 22-inch HyperFlite arrows, 4x32mm illuminated scope, rope cocking sled, lube wax and installation hardware. The same model is available with a pre-installed crank cocking device for just a few dollars more. The Hyper Whitetail 410 comes in Mossy Oak Terra Bayou with a MSRP of $799.99.
