oldtoys1961: The 16" bolts that come with it are a bit too heavy. I'd say 370-380 gr is
a good weight to shoot with this Xbow. Any more and it could stress the
prod and string. Those included bolts are heavy for a 16" and are 2219
aluminum with 125gr target heads weighing in at 397gr- 407gr. The Jag
shoots better than my Barnett Panzer 5. Now I need to chrony it.
But I use 18" Barnett 2216 cut down to 17" with 125 target or Broadheads
for 371gr-380gr total and they are deadly. I believe Easton makes the
Barnett arrows, I just don't like the grn/blk fletches on them.
Codenamebravo: The feathers are called FLETCHINGS thanks for the vid.
Jim Peters: I just picked up one of these a while back. So far, it has been an
excellent little crossbow considering it only cost $90 on sale. My opinion
is similar to that of NeverEnuffAmmo except when it comes to the included
red dot sight. I don't know if the red dot that came with mine is the
same one that came with his, but I wouldn't call mine junk as it definitely
exceeded my expectations. Zeroing the sight was a breeze (my 3 dots are
set up for 30, 40, and 50 yards with the carbon bolts I use), and it has
held zero since. After getting used to the trigger, I have been able to
squeeze out some pretty tight groups at all three distances... tight enough
that I had to replace the fletching on a lot of my bolts due to shaving
portions of them off when testing broadheads for hunting. Is it the best
crossbow out there? No, but it will work for someone either just getting
into crossbows or for someone on a budget.
TheJcc1996: if youguys are looking for his bow cheapgo blades and bows.. trust
kd7vdb: oh jesus brits!
Nick G: @seoulkidd1 As far as i am concerned it is the same crossbow. I talked with
the owner of the shop i bought my jaguar from and he told me it is the
exact same crossbow. The company that makes them is the biggest one in Asia
in making crossbows but they are marketing it under a different name in US
and EU. Reason? I dunno. This is a nice crossbow for some middle and small
game. Still trying to find good carbon bolts to avoid dryfire and get a
good flight out of it without major drop.
Joe Roman: @CommanderMephiston You could kill a elephant at 20 yards with it
NeverEnuffAmmo: @MrDominickmoore Yeah I already got 10 20" carbon bolts
Ainsley Harriott: What's "Aluminum"? Do you mean "Aluminium"?
Turbine2k8: You ever killed any thing with it??
TheBazFella: However you pronounce it mate, thats great shooting with one of these. I
have one, and its a bugger to get on zero with it, but Ive got the knack of
it now. I enjoy owning mine, and shall continue to until they are banned
here (probably sometime after 2015 lol). Great video, nice one.
ely1camb: is it worth its weight when being used for hunting most 4 legged and 2
legged predators at a good range??
RushNReady: snap lol
juki0h: ive seen same crossbow in different colors
NeverEnuffAmmo: Well I haven't had any problems, but admittedly I don't shoot a lot
TheBazFella: P.S., after watching your review the first time I also purchased some
carbon bolts and they not only shoot better but as you said here, they
suffer no damage on impact even when used with the 175lb prod, so thanks
NeverEnuffAmmo: Yes u can
Stefan Mal: would you recommand it for boar hunting too?
mrcox024: Not well, the first time I strung my Jaguar one broke! and since they are
not a common thing I could only find replacements online. Use care when
stringing, the instructions do not say to keep tension on the stringer rope
when releasing if I had the tip would not have broken.
CommanderMephiston: Whats the biggest animal it could kill and whats the effective range?
fishermen755: whats the range on the 175lb and the 150lb ?
You Zhou: I got the same crossbow and have lots fun with it. Your recommandation is
really useful to me. I used books, newspapers, put them into a plastic bag
handed up, and didnt bendind the bolts. But to rooster this is really hard = =!
NeverEnuffAmmo: @LucifersDisciple6 Not yet.
Oscuro888yt: Google it there was several different names for it originally. aluminium
has stuck in the UK, aluminum has stuck in the US.
Ars Garn Yam Marra: I have to chuckle at your comment. Do you eat meat? If so do you kill it
yourself? If you eat meat and dont kill it yourself then who kills it for
you? A man in a slaughter house like where i used to work will kill it for
you and you if you eat meat will simply walk into a shop and buy it in
clingfilm without a second thought other than what to have for tea. The
clue is in the name slaughterhouse! Mass slaughter using electrocution,
bolt guns and knives. continued.......
Mark Luna: my dad bought one of these. we don't know what we could shoot at though to
try it out at home.
NeverEnuffAmmo: Yup, still have it, take it out every so often to have a little fun with it
NeverEnuffAmmo: @Turbine2k8 No, never taken it hunting as I'm not that good with it yet,
but it is alot of fu .
NeverEnuffAmmo: U can leave it strung up
Brendan O'Halloran: this baby packs a punch, from about 10 yards away it went right through a
metal sheet, deff a good buy if you can afford a barnett or any higher end
crossbows, picked mine up for 170 so like in the video if you can get it
around 200 or below its a great deal.
S Rix: Hi thanks for the video great review, just to let you know iv seen these in
my local outdoors store here in the uk and they go by the jaguar name :)
Nick G: @NeverEnuffAmmo Is there a red dot you would suggest for use with this
crossbow? Or at least at what price range considering it is a pretty
inexpensive crossbow. I would disaggree with the suggestion you made about
carbon bolts. Less weight on the bolt might have a dry fire effect on the
limb in my opinion, unless you use heavier tips or broadhead tips to
counter the lose of weight due to changing materials. Excuse my english
btw. Not an american :/
Turbine2k8: @NeverEnuffAmmo Iv always wanted a crossbow but im about to get a Beretta
A400 so i dont think il get 1 for a while. Great vid for recommending one
for some one about to buy a cross bow.
stingray8213: haha to bad i didnt see this earlier because i already wiped out 6 nice
aluminum arrows with my other cross bow into 1/2 inch plywood with only a
80 pound bow..i was thinking they would probably bounce off since it had a
target in front of it ..it went clean through the target and about a inch
out the other side of the ply wood..needless to say what the results were
getting them out..oh yea there called fletchings..ha.
LancasterRifleman: The sportsmans guide has them for $135.
Tactical Bushcraft: you could hunt with it if you were a complete kitty that gets off killing
Deni Dokmanović: greetings from Croatia /watch?v=aUhwQvoxwqI&feature=g-upl
Ars Garn Yam Marra: part 2... Pigs and sheep are shocked, throats cut and hung upside down to
bleed out whilst still alive. All defenseless animals bred and killed for
those who dont kill what they eat themselves. You dont know what a room
full of 100 pigs squeeling with fear sounds like and the whole process of
slaughterhouses isnt pleasant. They dont get nice music played or read bed
time stories. Have a little think before yapping about hunting. It puts
food on the table and is a natural process.
NeverEnuffAmmo: @olim96 Cool, glad the vid helped, it is alot of fun, and a hunting weapon
stingray8213: haha today black friday i got it for 149.00..big 5 deal....lol.....
TheBazFella: Good video mate, good info on this Crossbow; I live in the UK where
firearms (outside the armed services) are almost exclusively in the hands
of criminals, and I bought my Jaguar as a contingency for any possible
future shtf scenario; here its called the Armex Jaguar and mine too came
with a 175lb prod, which I have since downscaled to 125lbs, and its now a
much more manageable weapon. Yours is the first vid other than mine that
Ive seen with spoken info in the review, and yours is better. Baz.
Ryan Jennings: I'm gonna get this for mainly having fun, shooting targets and what not
because we are not allowed to hunt animals in the UK which is bullcrap.
Also i will use it to get my brother out of my room, point it at him and
say 'If you don't get out, i'll shoot you in the ass!'
olim96: Nice review, I'll probably be getting one of these now :-)
matrat2006: thanks for posting very informative defo a purchase for me in the uk as no
firearms here : (
SoundOfSilenceWolf: you pronounce it "Al-lu-min-E-um" correct?
RacerXGTO: It's spelled "defenseless". Once you PETA types ever finish school and get
off your rolled leaf brain eradicator, you might actually amount to
something. What that is exactly remains to be seen. I get sick and tired of
gays, animal nuts and vegetarians always trying to tell me what I should
put in my mouth. I don't go into your gay forums and tell you the best way
to suck pickle. I don't know why you gaytards come in these videos to get
your assholes all puckered up, but I suggest you move along.
NeverEnuffAmmo: @togashigr11 Honestly I'm not sure, I'm still very new to crossbows, and
this is my first and only one so far.
NeverEnuffAmmo: @LucifersDisciple6 It's definitely a good hunting weapon, and a decent
option for defense.
NeverEnuffAmmo: @fishermen755 Accurate range is about 50 yards on most modern crossbows,
there are some out there that are good up to 100 but those are very
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
