Joe Pa, I have one very big obstacle today. Yea, honey do's and making progress. All the tweaks are very simple fixes. Damn, Barnett just do it right out of the box. It's not going to cost you anymore to do this. Okay, off my soap box. LOL.Looks interesting Tom. Riser looks robust. Guessing it’s cast magnesium? Does it feel any more front heavy? Limbs look shorter and probably stiffer. Hope they have the same durability as the TS and XP that you have seen.
FYI: On my XP400 it originally weight 6.56lbs but I had Burky build a more robust and adjustable string stop. Worth it!Joe Pa, I have one very big obstacle today. Yea, honey do's and making progress.

Riser: I am guessing riser is made of magnesium.
Shouldering the WH400XTR feels balance to me. I rate as spot on. Xbow doesn't feel front heavy or heavy at all. Specs are 6.5lbs sans scope and quiver. Will weight with scope today when I get a break. Although Stock is not adjustable it feels really good shouldering on my 6'1" frame.
String Stops: I'm going to pack cotton inside the stops to adjust string stops closer to the bowstring. HunterT, thanks for the suggestion. May spot glue to secure but not so much I can't remove in for future. Vertically, string is pretty close to center on the stops. No adjustment needed there. Will revisit to double check.
Zip tie shims have easily leveled the bow string on the shooting rail.
The CCD is set into the rear butt stock area if one desires to add one. The bundle I purchased comes with the CCD. I probably will mount. It's not heavy at all and the handle is removable.
I expect to shoot my 20" Easton 9MM, 433 grain arrows 380-385fps. Maybe slightly slower. Just a guess on my end. Since I have lots of history with Barnett I can advance cams in my sleep. Will chrono today. Also, I will inspect cams for cam lean. Barnett uses their tried and true "Y" yoke cable setup.
One important assembly note. Xbow was built/inspected 12/21/2021. When the zip tied their promotion riser overlay Barnett assembler tightened the zip tie way to tight onto the bowstring. Gotta be very careful cutting the zip tie and not the bow string. Yikes!
The manual rope cocker sled must be built out of same magnesium/ metal. It's quite heavy vs injected molded plastic.
Anymore question fire away.

I think it needs about 1.5 lbs more scope on it.....Okay, Barnett CCD is installed to OEM specs. It's straight forward. butt caps for the CCD pop out. Very simple. Just follow instructions. It's straight forward. Total weight with CCD weighs in a 7.58lbs including the scope. See lower right hand corner in pic. See digital weight scale. Not bad for a CCD, scope and Xbow total weight.
Now for reality. I'd rate the CCD a 6 out of 10 vs my Ten Point experience. The best I can say it works. That's my initial impression. As I thought you do not need the handle locked on the Xbow. You can screw in and remove anytime you want to use the CCD.
Cranking: with these heavier limbs it's not easy to crank. The only advantage I can see is if you have back issues or other physical limitations. Possibly the CCD will work for you. I can grit it out with rope cocking. It's not that hard but harder then most other Xbows I've rope cocked. Sharing the good bad and ugly.
See pic with scale in lower right on pic.
