Looks like Barnett is offering another new crossbow for the youth crossbow hunter. The Recruit 100 is new for 2015 and has many features a youth or small framed hunter will enjoy. It has a lower draw weight of 100 pounds making it easier to cock, and the stock is adjustable in length allowing the crossbow to "grow" with the hunter. You can find the official Barnett press release below.

New for 2015, Barnett launches the perfect youth hunting crossbow - the Barnett Recruit 100. The all-new Barnett Recruit 100 is specifically designed to fit the smaller-framed hunter and offers enough adjustment to grow with that hunter.

This crossbow was specifically designed with the young hunter in mind. Every factor including draw-weight, length of pull, and weight has been taken into consideration to create the best all-round crossbow for young shooters. The perfect size for young hunters, the compact Recruit 100 is easy to handle while still providing enough speed for the hunt. At 256 fps and 58 ft. lbs. of KE, this bow can
take down any game the hunter chooses. Best of all, it achieves these impressive
numbers while sporting a draw-weight of just 100 lbs.

The adjustable butt stock gives the shooter the option to keep the bow as
he or she grows while easily making needed adjustments. Of course, safety is a priority. The Recruit features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as
the premium Barnett bows.

A feature patented by Barnett, a Shoot Thru Riser, is a unique and sought after design that lengthens the power stroke of a bow without placing the cocking string beyond arms length. This allows for increased speeds and stored energy levels unequaled in the industry.

Barnett's high-energy cam system and CROSSWIRE® string and cable system
contributes to a faster, quieter, more precise shot. The CROSSWIRE® string and
cable system blends Barnett's fibers with the industry's toughest serving materials,
ensuring the shooter has the most stable and reliable string in the industry.
The system also boasts a crisp 3.5-pound trigger for more consistent shots and tighter groups. The stock allows for easy installation of the optional crank-cocking device so that the shooter will never need someone else to cock the
bow for him or her.

The Recruit 100 will no doubt make the new hunter in your life happy.
