Size and Weight
Measuring 36.25 inches in length and 20.375 inches in width, this model is not much different from the older variants in terms of sizes. A Barnett Whitetail Hunter II and the Barnett TS390 for example measure 34.25/36.25 inches in length and 18.25/18.875 inches wide. What separates it from its predecessors is the insane power that it provides. Barnett Hyperghost 425 Crossbow
The size of the Barnett HyperGhost 425 is actually quite compact. It’s easy to take with you during a hunting trip and doesn’t weigh much at all at 7.7 lbs. With the retractable underarm counterbalance support this crossbow feels perfectly balanced when you hold it.
The Barnett HyperGhost 425 is easy to maneuver in blinds and stands. For better stability and support, it features the pass-through fore grip and the RUCS (Retractable Underarm Counterbalance Support).
Speed and Arrows
It fires arrows up to a speed of 425 FPS, making it one of the faster crossbows ever made. It’s also stronger compared to the extremely rated predator with 206 lbs. draw weight, 16.333 inches power stroke, and 152 feet.
The main highlight of this model is the new Hyper-FLITE arrows particularly made for the Hyper series variants. With a small diameter of only 0.204 inches, 22 inches length and 0.001 inches straightness tolerance, these arrows guarantee better penetration and perfection because they have less bother by wind drafts.
The small diameter easily penetrates through tougher and thicker skin ensuring a fast kill. These arrows are also consistent and reliable, as they simply maneuver in windy situations offering a perfect shot.
Reduced diameter arrows have the ability to cut through the wind and maintain a more accurate course than a standard diameter. Barnett says these arrows offer 25% more penetration and 50% less wind drift. Barnett Hyperghost 425 Crossbow
Just using the provided rope cocking sled can be really difficult to cock the Barnett HyperGhost 425. We definitely recommend using the Barnett crank docking device if you’re planning to cock the crossbow more than once during a hunting trip.
Assembling and Disassembling
It’s really easy to assemble the Barnett HyperGhost 425. Barnett has patented ‘single bolt assembly’. There’s seriously just one bolt you have to tighten! Make sure to install the quiver bracket first! The quiver bracket mounts directly under the rail connection and if you install the step through riser stock first, you’ll have to disassemble the crossbow again.
After installing the bracket of the quiver, step-through riser and then the quiver, it’s time to shoot the crossbow. Total assembly of the crossbow takes less than a couple of minutes and disassembling is as easy as assembling the crossbow.
The Barnett HyperGhost 425 comes equipped with the Barnett 1.5 – 5×32 Premium Adjustable Illuminated Scope. This scope has red or green illuminated reticles for low light conditions and is perfectly tuned up to 70 yards.
Because the HyperGhost 425 can shoot arrows at 425 feet per second, you’ll surely want to make the most use out of it. With the Barnett 1.5 – 5×32 scope you can do that! With a bit of tuning you can make the crossbow even perfect for targets at up to 100 yards!
Shooting and Trigger
Barnett equipped the HyperGhost with some good string dampeners. These string dampeners makes shooting the crossbow really quiet.
The patent-protected Trigger Tech system provides a smoother three lbs. zero creep trigger that lets for smooth release, while the Nock sensors, as well as Anti-dry fire, prevent dry firing and injuries.
Premium enhancements like a complete accessory package (including a 1.5 x 5 x 32 illuminated scope), CNC machined aluminum flight track, retractable underarm counterbalance support, Soft Look™ floating bristle arrow retainer and anti-dry fire Trigger Tech™ trigger make the Hyper Ghost 425 almost too good to be true. But you’re not seeing things; this ghost is real.
