Barnett’s Hyper Raptor crossbow offers devastating performance at a disruptive price

New for 2023, the Hyper Raptor leads the way with premium features, performance-driven innovation, and industry-leading technology to produce the smoothest, fastest, and easiest shooting experience on the market. Best of all, Barnett® offers all of this at an incredible retail price!

At the heart of every Barnett crossbow is quality and reliability. As the leading pioneer of the modern crossbow movement, Barnett’s unwavering focus on precision, safety and performance has earned the trust of hunters from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. With over 60 years of experience and examining every aspect of every crossbow, Barnett is proud to be the world’s #1 crossbow manufacturer.

The Hyper Raptor excels in all aspects of performance-inspired design and technology. With a lightweight composite body and measuring just over seven inches from axis to axis when cocked, the crossbow provides excellent maneuverability in tight quarters hunting applications. Its pivoting limb pockets put less weight on the front of the crossbow while making a more durable shooting platform with reduced recoil and vibration. With its compact, energy-efficient design, the Hyper Raptor sends small-diameter HyperFlite™ arrows downward with incredible speed – up to 410 feet per second and 142 foot-pounds. of energy for maximum bone-crushing penetration.

Like all Hyper™ Series crossbows, the Hyper Raptor is paired with Barnett’s exclusive and patent-pending 20-inch .204 diameter HyperFlite arrows. 21% increased FOC (Front of Center) of the arrow and a 61% higher Ballistic Coefficient reduce wind drift, creating a deadly combination of blistering speed, downrange accuracy, and deeper penetration. With a straightness tolerance of +/- 0.001 in., HyperFlite shafts provide 25% deeper penetration than the competition.

The Hyper Raptor is not only exceptionally fast, but also proves to be highly accurate. Barnett’s new Halo system eliminates cable crossover and cam droop to create a perfectly balanced string path for superior precision. Plus, arrows stay secure with Barnett’s Soft Lok™ floating bristle arrow retention system and the CNC-machined aluminum flight track provides shot-after-shot consistency.

The Hyper Raptor uses a metal injection molded trigger and TriggerTech™ frictionless release technology (a $200 value). The TriggerTech trigger features a crisp, reliable 3-pound pull for consistent shots and improved accuracy. This is another example of how Barnett leads the industry in innovation and value. An Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) system and a nock sensor are added to ensure the crossbow is loaded correctly. Plus, new Rope Hold Roller Ball technology keeps the RCD rope in place while connecting the hooks to the rope for more consistent cocking. The Hyper Raptor is also offered in a pre-installed CCD format to ensure that all hunters can use this innovative crossbow however they prefer.

Comfort and customization add the finishing touches to the Hyper Raptor. Hunter-friendly ergonomics are enhanced by multiple features, such as finger safety reminders on the pass-through forend with Verti-Grip palm rest. An adjustable draw-length stock and padded, micro-adjustable buttrest ensure perfect draw length and proper scope-to-eye alignment. Pre-installed string suppressors reduce recoil, vibration, and noise while shooting.

Barnett includes even more value to complete the Hyper Raptor package. The crossbow comes equipped with a premium 4×36 illuminated multi-reticle sight with flip-up caps. The scope offers precise target acquisition in a wide range of ambient light conditions, from twilight to noon. The scope is adjustable so that the scope reticles are calibrated at exact distances based on arrow speed.

The complete package includes a premium side-mount quiver, three 20-inch HyperFlite arrows with field tips, 4×36 illuminated riflescope with multiple reticles, integrated sled-style string cocking device, and lubricating wax. Best of all, the Hyper Raptor’s single-bolt assembly comes nearly assembled and virtually ready to hunt right out of the box.

The search for the smoothest, fastest and easiest shooting experience is officially over. The Hyper Raptor truly packs some devastating performance with an incredible price of $599.
