Barnett’s approach to improving crossbow performance goes beyond the crossbow itself. By improving the crossbow arrow, they have radically improved the performance of the crossbow. Barnett is the first company to use small diameter arrows to work with all of their Hyper series crossbows. HyperFlite arrows do several things to benefit you, over 25% deeper penetration, less wind drift, increased durability and maximum kinetic energy delivery.
Seeing is believing. To show off the improved penetration of the HyperFlite arrow over standard diameter arrows, we shot both in a 20% Clear Ballistics Gel at 50 yards. Both arrows were fired from crossbows that shot at 405 feet per second. Clearly the results speak for themselves. HyperFlite outperforms standard diameter arrows in penetration results.

Penetration is especially critical for hunting. The HyperFlite™ is designed to pierce the toughest of hides and will increase hit rates with accurate shots and better blood trails. Smaller diameter arrows encounter less resistance to penetrate deeper through vital organs and produce quicker, cleaner kills. The 21% rise in the front of the center of HyperFlite helps to not only guide the range of the arrow down more accurately, but also push the broadheads in fully.
The Barnett HyperFlite™ shaft has an inside diameter of 0.204 inches, a length of 22 inches and a straightness of 0.001 inches. These arrows are extremely durable and retain their straightness shot after shot.
Crossbow shooters looking to up their game will enjoy making the switch to HyperFlite™, a more accurate and penetrating arrow. The combination of consistency, speed, accuracy and penetration makes the Hyper™ series crossbows and HyperFlite™ arrows an independent winner in the crossbow market.
