Curious what Barnett will be releasing at the ATA this year. Will we see the new inward cam designed HyperFlite Crossbows actually being release or will they get offer even more radical Xbow designs? We'll find out soon enough.

To be continued.

Hoping for a high quality riser design. I like the style of the Carbonite riser, but it needs to be built out of better quality material. This is where there was so many Barnett crossbow failures. Narrowing the riser when measured across the humps of the limb rockers and shortening the limbs from 12 1/2" to 11" made for a narrower crossbow but limited the crossbow for speed for target shooting.

Go back to the 1/2 moon nocks which can be purchased as after market or use aftermarket arrows.

All the best.

Inverted cams just lead to string wear and they do not have yokes to both axle lobes for tuning. Just put heavier limbs and bigger cams on the 370 platform. 410 to 420 fps with a 400 gn arrow and I am first in line. (maybe second,Tom is pretty quick on the draw.)

Gotta say lots of good Barnett options out there but there seems to be a legion of TS370 owners developing. However, I do like the idea of a carbon light STR if it holds up.

What is Barnett going to do at the ATA???

Well, for me, if you are wanting a TS 420 (not a bad idea), I'd want a machined aluminum riser that would raise the limb pockets to a height that the string would just barely kiss the top of the rail, or ride just a hair off it. I doubt seriously that Barnett does this, as they seem to like their step through risers much more than you users do. No cast, no composite, just a tough, well machined riser. I do know that would be more expensive though.;)

Heavyer limbs would help, but bigger cams are of little use unless u lengthen the crossbow overall to accomadate the larger cam, buy inverting the cams u can gain powerstroke and keep the bow shorter in lengths, plus keep the draw weight manageable for manual hand cocking IMO.

The carbonlite series riser is a good idea from its stepthrough design, it allows mounting the limbs more forward and gains powerstroke in that way without lengthening the crossbow, i would like to see a more compact version of it and don't care what its made out of.

As long as it has the structural integrity that can withstand the shock from the speed and power of the arrow discharge along with extend ATA being cocked for timelines that last 6-8 hours.

By useing larger cams you have to lengthen the barrel end of the crossbow for the longer stroke.
I like your thinking on flipping the cams using a more aggressive cam , and gaining an extra two inches of power stroke. This might put it in the 400 fps range similar to the Razor or Ghost 385 series. Both these xbows were light weight and short at 6.5 lbs and 6.9 pounds . ...KT
