Got out over last several days. Have total 40 shots on my new Xbow. Just installed Sig Romeo Red Dot. Total hunting setup sans quiver 6.74lbs.

Shooting a three arrow group at 40 yards. I know I shouldn't have but officially dialed in. Red Dot ready and this dog will hunt!

Yes.

I bet 20” will work fine. We will see. 👏👏👏

length, non issue for me.
Tom,
Take a close look at the last photo in the series above. It appears two inches less or 20" arrow will put the broadhead in the rail position.
Best regards

20” arrows non issue. Not in my Xbow.
HuntersThompson, yes, I chrono’d 400 grain arrows yesterday at 390fps.

Note: It’s a stout SOB to rope cock.

As far as the distance between the stops and string I use to put different width washers on the shaft of the stops,to adjust this distance on my Barnetts, add a drop of gorilla glue if needed.

SPOT, hope all is well. I haven't used a 22" arrow yet out of my Xbow. No required in my opinion.

I was going to do that but Mike's suggestion with the cotton balls works perfect. I just cut them with a scissor. Simple fix!

Post #67 mentions the crossbow is hard to rope cock. If one looks
at the cams and see the huge axle offset from the center of the
cam, this is the reason. One would even notice this with a crank
cocking device. Once over the hump, if there is still enough travel
before reaching the fully cocked position, it would get easier.

This works similar to a vertical bow, which results in less holding
weight when that bow is cocked.

My Center Point XT390 is similar, very hard to cock in the last wee
bit. I modified it to use a plug in crank-cocking device. This is still
noticeable, but much easier to cock the crossbow than the rope.

Wishing you all the best.
Take care.

I like the looks of those jumbo stops, if you look close at the pics in post #70 you see what looks like a silver washer/spacer without it the distance may be more then one wants between string and stop. When tuning the bow this distance may change as well. This is where adding or subtracting a washer gives you adjustment of the distance, your non adjustable stops are now adjustable. The cotton method may work just as well.

That silver you see is the metal posts from a TS model that I slid over the plastic of the xp to make them longer to support the bigger stops. I also moved the stop further back from strings to accommodate the length. On the xp models the stops come too close to string,pressing on them usually. The xp need to be cam advanced to get the proper string/ stop separation. The xtr comes with too much space and needs spacing forward. Adjustable stops would be the answer like what Burky builds. Barnett? Anyone listening?

Barnett ADF FYI: Barnett ADFs safety switch is highly underrated build. All of mine are very smooth. My 2022 WH400XTR is slightly different build and is even more smooth then my past Barnetts, including all other Xbows I've owned in the past. Not a major differentiator because past Barnett's have all been great but this is even better. It's almost like a glide but noticeable feel going from safety to fire mode. Just a nuance I wanted to share.

I take it your pleased with the accuracy?
I'm extremely impressed with this 2022 model. I have it dialed in and no real need to shoot until hunt season using my Easton 9MM out of box arrows. The only mods to the arrows are the lighted nocks I got off of Amazon. This dog will hunt!
