Finding the best Crossbow in the Market - The PSE TAC 15i vs. The Barnett Ghost 400

With the increasing number of crossbow models available in the market, it is necessary to compare the best brands and products. Currently, there are 2 leading products in the market, the PSE TAC 15i and the Barnett Ghost 400.

The PSE TAC 15i

In 2010, PSE released a new and exciting crossbow, the TAC 15i. This crossbow has a lot to offer. The accuracy it has is incomparable because it delivers astounding accuracy at 50 yards. The power it has also is something to be considered. At 402 Feet per second, the TAC 15i is simply amazing. In addition, it has several mechanisms such as the vibracheck backstops that help minimize vibrations making the crossbow more smooth to operate and quieter in release.

While most of the crossbows available require effort when cocking and loading, the TAC 15i has a cranking mechanism that requires only 12 lbs. of force to crank. This makes it easy for owners to load and fire it. The crank also functions as an unloader which eliminates the necessity to fire the crossbow to unload it. The design also has several mountings for additional parts such as scopes, flashlights and bipods.

On the downside, the TAC 15i crossbow is quite expensive and requires a special arrow that is specifically designed for the device. Moreover, it is not as compact as other crossbows available in the market as the TAC 15i resembles the AR rifle in size.

The Barnett Ghost 400

The Barnett Ghost 400 is a force to be reckoned with. With the patented Barnett ultra light laminated carbon riser, it is lightweight and easy to carry and aim. Because of its manner of construction, the crossbow is not only lightweight; it is also not top heavy. This helps hunters in aiming properly as well as adds accuracy in every shot.

The quality of the materials also decreases the vibration of the crossbow making it 30% quieter and smoother to release. Safety, especially for clients who are new crossbow enthusiasts is a much needed factor and the Ghost 400 offers amazing 5 to 1 safety features not available in TAC 15i. The crossbow delivers 400 FPS power and has anti dry fire mechanism which means that one cannot fire the crossbow without an arrow. The crossbow is not only powerful and accurate; its price is also competitively priced compared to TAC 15i which makes it a hot commodity especially for beginning bow hunters.

On the downside, the bow may be lightweight, but with a width of 24 inches, it is less compact than the TAC 15. Cocking the arrow isn't also as convenient as TAC 15i because the Ghost 400 requires a rope to accomplish this.

Conclusion

In reality several factors like safety. Cost and power and accuracy are put into consideration when buying crossbows. In terms of power, and accuracy, TAC 15i tops the list. However, the Ghost 400 is superb in safety and value for money. One thing is for sure though, the TAC 15i and the Ghost 400 crossbow will continue to dominate the market.
