Yep, Hyper Flight. The TS380 impresses me. Curious to 2020 prices.

Calm down sir! ;)

You have a completely fine new BearX crossbow.

Ya, the new TenPoints sure look good. I'm hard pressed to step away from the Nitro X and XRT to get a different crank system. Maybe later this year :rolleyes:

A great investment,but like that 410 ...KT
What does it weigh? Cosmetically it's a head turner. It looks very similar to me BearX Constrictor Strat limb design.

I do like Barnett's tactical series rail stock design. It't tried and true and continues to look modern.

Trigger tech requires no improvement. Best trigger on the market with a good legacy.

If one looks on the opposite side of some of these speed ring scopes, there are magnification power numbers. All one is doing when thinking of changing the speed ring, is increasing the magnification which is the same as changing magnification on any variable power scope.

As an example, I use rifle scopes on my crossbows for target shooting. Suppose I have the power set at 4 for a fifty yard shot and then make the shot. If I wish for a clearer view to see exactly how close I came to the aiming point, I just increase the power magnification. This is all that speed ring does. It is a marketing ploy.

As another example, look through your scope and place a cross hair or dot on a target. Using the same cross hair or dot, turn the scope to a higher magnification. All that is being done is enlarging the target for a better view.

All the best.

Wonder if the riser is machined or cast, looks like it could be cast, foot stirrup looks machined though, I'd say Tenpoint and Barnett stold the show.
I had same vibe as well.

Bunny i was allways under the impression that it magnified ur target and allso tightened up ur aimpoints as well.

All it doing is increasing the visibility of what one is aiming at using the same dot or cross hair. Using a different dot or cross hair for the same distance, rotating the "speed ring" all it is doing is increasing the magnification to view the target or aiming point better.

I have two crossbows set up with the HHA Optimizer, which works similar to the Ravin Jack Plate. What these two products do if one wishes to shoot say longer distance, it tilts the front end of the scope down forcing the shooter to raise the front of the crossbow. If you wish to see the target better, one just increases the power of the scope which a scope with the speed ring does the same. As mentioned if one looks on the back of that "speed ring" some scopes have the power markings.
Therefore turning the "speed ring" increases the power for better visibility.

All the best.

My personal comment to the HHA comments. I find my benefit using for a single red dot sight or single crosshair 3-9x32 scope to add more focus for accuracy. In they FOV less clutter equals less distractions for me. Set sight at 20 yards per scope recommendations. Following the basic speed chart from HHA set PIN number at 60 yards, adjust until elevation is accurate, match the 60 yard PIN number to the tape and you will be dialed in from 0-100 yards by one yard increments on the HHA dial.

Confused as to 410 fps with 225 lb limbs and that is shooting those toothpicks. Would have expected more speed than that. Like the looks but just seems like it should be faster.
One post mentioned the arrow-point combination weighing 404 grain which is the same as what Barnett used last year on the Hyper Ghost 405 and 425 crossbows.

Using my 2018 Barnett Droptine STR as an example, where they narrowed the riser when measuring across the humps of the limb rockers and shortening the limbs from 12 1/2" to 11" one can not get the speed out of them even when advancing the cams to maximum. This crossbow is advertised as shooting a 380 grain arrow-point combination at 380 feet per second. Properly tuned, shooting that same arrow, it shoots very close to 400 feet per second.

Barnett apparently narrowed the crossbows due to competition but defeated them selves when one is trying to increase speed. The Barnett Ghost 410 with better quality parts, and properly tuned will out shoot any of Barnett's newer crossbows. The Ghost 410 as tuned will shoot a 20" Carbon Express Pile Driver 450 grain arrow-point combination averaging 421 to 423 feet per second. That equates to shooting a 400 grain arrow-point combination at 436 to 438 feet per second. Originally it was advertised to shoot a 20" 400 grain arrow-point combination at 410 feet per second.

Advancing the cams more, that crossbow will even shoot faster with the same arrow.

This new crossbow has a lot stronger riser system and stronger limbs which Barnett required for their earlier crossbow versions.

All the best.

Watched a coulple short videos on this bow, it looks like it's a mile long, if its over 34in. at the shortest setting i will look else where !! would like to have some accurate specs. I guess 35in. is where my 370s are shot at so i guess 3ft. would be my limit for this bow.
