    Why? Problem with the bow or with the company?
    I have been looking for an inexpensive wheelie to do some string/cable experimentation on, if you decide to part with it, PM me.

    Hey Jack,

    It's a problem with their company... Have been fighting with them over a certain issue with the scope that they sent me. I sent 5 emails in the last year over it with no response. Finally I had to threaten them with going over their head straight to either the VP, President and/or CEO of the company on the 6th email and finally someone responded. He told me that he wanted me to ship them, at their cost, both the bow and the scope. They wanted to replace the scope and make sure the bow is shooting true. Now knowing what my bow does in FPS (faster than the advertised 300 FPS) I AM not sending the bow back. The bow is fine. Its the scope that's the prob. It hasn't worked from day one and its suppose to be their premium scope.

    After a few emails back and forth the last email from this gentlemen stated that they still wanted to replace the scope and when I send it out to give him the Tracking number and when he saw this scope moving he will send the replacement. I told him to email me the Shipping label and once I printed it out I would tape it to the box and it will go out on Monday. Then he told me that I had to pay for S&H AFTER the fact that he said they would... Nah.... Im done with Barnett. Sad part is I was going to make a large order from them in August. Guess someone else is gonna get that order...

    Sorry buddy this bow is going no where. I am gonna get a new scope for it. Take it and have it tuned and re strung and give to my step-son as a practice bow for a year. After that I will take it and have it gone completely over with a fine tooth comb and give it to my then 13 yr old daughter as a practice bow.... This is an awesome good bow...

    Nope not having a string problem or cam problem. The problem is with there Customer service. This bow is excellent and I got lucky with this one. Its shooting a stronger FPS than the 300 that is advertised... I am getting ready to go hunting for my first time IF I can get someone to take me and this bow, along with another, will be going with me...

    Hmm, they might have improved their services over the years.
