Barnett HyperGhost 405
Barnett’s all-new Hyper series for 2019 now includes two models, the HyperGhost 405 and the HyperGhost 425. Both new crossbows harness Barnett’s newest technology and design to offer crossbow hunters the speed and power to take down big game. We covered the HyperGhost 425 previously, so now it is time to look at the HyperGhost 405.
The HyperGhost 405 features a new upgraded stock and Barnett’s patented step-through riser. The crossbow kit includes three HyperFlite arrows designed exclusively for use with Hyper Series crossbows. The Retractable Underarm Counterbalance Support (RUCS), hooks under the shooter’s arm to counteract the weight of the riser for a balanced, secure shot when shouldering the bow.
The HyperGhost 405 features a Mossy Oak Treestand finish with skull detail. It is designed to deliver arrows at 405 feet-per-second speed.
The HyperGhost 405 weighs in at 7.7 lbs and has a draw weight of 185 lbs. Like HyperGhost 425 the new 405 also features the TriggerTech trigger. As we mentioned in the previous article, the trigger is an excellent value in its own right. It uses a friction-less release that has a free-floating roller between the sear and trigger. This allows for a crisp 3 lb trigger break.
