For serious whitetail hunters, a crossbow has to have certain qualities to become their “go to” choice for hunting. It has to be durable, reliable and accurate. It has to be powerful enough to make clean kills on mature bucks, but that strength has to be balanced so that it is not too bulky or heavy. And finally, it has to provide great value for the money.

Barnett Crossbows – a company that's been building and improving on crossbows with the needs of serious hunters in mind for 50 years – had all these qualities in their sights when they designed the new Droptine crossbow.
The Droptine delivers on these goals using a combination of field-tested Barnett technology, including some you'd expect to see only on the most expensive bows. As a result, the Droptine delivers arrows at 350 fps and 109 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy with just a 160 lb. draw weight. That's enough power to take any whitetail are larger game in North America. It does so without being bulky or heavy, measuring 19.5 inches from axle-to-axle and weighing in at an even 7 lbs.
Durable, Reliable and Accurate.
Durable, Reliable and Accurate.
Top-end features that are proven successes such as the patented Floating Bristle Retainer System (FBR) and safety elements such as finger minders and a pass-through foregrip are part of the Droptine's balanced system of components. The Bristle Retainer is a noticeable upgrade over standard arrow retainers found on most crossbows. It provides a solid and durable arrow retainer that is user friendly both at the range and in the field. With it, users can be confident that the arrow is properly seated and ready for the next shot.
Barnett knows that power must be combined with accuracy. The easy-to-sight-in 4X32 multi-reticle scope and a patent-pending bristle retainer help make this bow highly accurate. The precision parts keep the power focused on where you aim.
This is a bow for hunters who want high quality performance out a crossbow that lasts. You owe it to yourself to put your hands on one and see for yourself the next time you upgrade your bow.
