Putting Crossbows in Reverse

Today’s crossbows are faster and smoother than ever, but very few are designed for superior maneuverability and comfort.  The Barnett Buck Commander Raptor Reverse features reverse-draw technology that moves the limb pockets closer to the shooter and encourages an amazingly comfortable and steady shot. And if its strikingly good looks don’t grab your attention, its performance and features surely will.

Measuring just 10 inches axle-to-axle when cocked, the BC Raptor Reverse is ideal for both tree stand and ground blind applications. It combines the best design elements from all Barnett crossbows into one lightweight, hard-hitting package. Launching arrows at a blazing 330 FPS, the BC Raptor Reverse delivers 97 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy to its target.

The BC Raptor Reverse’s CarbonLite Riser creates significantly less vibration and noise than other crossbows without sacrificing speed or accuracy.  The most technically advanced riser ever created for a crossbow, the CarbonLite Riser removes approximately 43% of weight, which creates an even more balanced feel. Integrated string suppressors, adjustable butt pad, CNC machined aluminum flight track, finger reminders and a pass-through foregrip are all standard features of the crossbow.

Finally, the BC Raptor Reverse sports Barnett’s patent pending Bristle Retainer. With it, users can be confident that the arrow is properly seated and ready for the next shot.The Buck Commander Raptor Reverse is available through retailers as a complete package including the crossbow, a quick-detach quiver, three 20” arrows and an illuminated 4×32 Multi Reticle Scope.

Shimano Adds Caenan to its Cast

For anglers who know the fishing advantages when using a baitcasting reel, especially those who enjoy competitive bass fishing, Shimano offers its new Caenan 150 casting reels. With noted Shimano durability and reliability, three low-profile design reels are available – the Caenan 150, left-hand retrieve 151 and higher-gear 150HG.

When using certain hard and plastic baits, baitcasting reels “can provide more accurate lure placement, and enables you to make quicker casts so your lure is in the water more,” said noted pro bass angler Jonathon VanDam. “And while ideal for tournament anglers at all levels, the new Caenan reels are the perfect choice for the growing numbers of high school and college kids who are enjoying competitive fishing action and looking for solid, durable tackle with their hard earned money.”

Loaded with proven features, the Caenan reels deliver exceptional strength and rigidity with Shimano’s redesigned High Efficiency Gearing (HEG). Anglers can easily adjust spool speed – and dial the reel in to reduce backlashes, with Shimano’s upgraded Variable Brake System (VBS). Combine that with Stable Spool Design (S3D) for less spool vibration and anglers can expect long-casting performance. 

The Caenan 150 and 151 with 6.3:1 gear ratios – reeling in 26-inches of line per crank, has all-around applications for use with crankbaits, spinnerbaits, worms, jigs and other soft plastics. The higher speed 7.2:1 gear ratio Caenan 150HG reel brings in 30-inches of line per crank, ideal for coming tight quick on plastics for solid hook-sets.

All weighing 7.2 ounces with four ball bearings and one roller bearing for no handle backplay, the Caenan reels will handle from 120 yards of 10-pound test monofilament or fluorocarbon line and up to 90 yards of 14-pound. When used with standard PowerPro braid, the reels hold 150 yards of 20-pound and up to 105 yards of 40-pound test.
