Jaguar Crossbow: Shootin' Review




What do you think about this video?

atilio garcia: 4.15 WHERE DID YOU SEE ON LINE GETTING THOSE SPEEDS OF 310 FPS?  I WONDER IF IT IS WORTHY TO SPEND SOME MORE MONEY FOR THE BARNETT RECRUIT, I WONDER WHAT DIFFERENCE OF POWER AND PENETRATION THEY WILL HAVE .MAY BE DIFFERENCE WILL NOT BE THAT MUCH AS TO SPEND MORE MONEY FOR BARNETT RECRUIT WICH SPEED IS 300 FPS..COMPARE TO 145 FPS COMPANY CLAIMS FOR JAGUAR .

LeftyLouis: whats the longest bolt you can us in this xbow??? thnx

Steve Cady: @NeverEnoughAmmo can the trigger tension be adjusted? I like accuracy and know that trigger squeeze is extremely important. I've been shooting this very crossbow and notice it takes a long travel of the trigger before the bolt fires.

FaZe Failure of the Sphincter: Guys, theres a real nice deal at ruralking.com only $70, 193 4 1/2 star reviews, im gettin as a first crossbow for christmas

Himalayan: Great review! The only thing I don't agree is that you have mounted a Picatinny rail.. it's a Weaver rail, Picatinny rail have the the gaps between the slots all equally placed Weaver however does not. But anyway good job and keep up the good work!

Gun Slinger: Dude, love your stuff. I just bought this crossbow from a friend for $150.00, and he also gave me a box of 5 new bolts, and a package of 6 razor broad head tips, so I thought it was a pretty good deal. After checking out a few videos and forums on this crossbow, as usual there were people that had nothing but bad things to say about it...obviously people with money that fall out of their asses to buy expensive best of the best gear, and there were people that had good things to say about it...people like me that have a family to feed and bills to pay...not to mention trying to figure in a somewhat budget to spend on preps, gear and supplies. But on one of the forums, a guy posted a picture of a deer that he had taken down with this very crossbow at between 30-45 yards...he hit it spot on, said the bolt went clean through the deer, it ran about 100 yards and fell over dead. This video you made, and that one post sold me on buying it from the friend of mine. And like you said in your video, if it's powerful enough to stick into and at times go almost completely through half inch plywood...umm, yeah...I'd say that it's more than capable of doing the job. I'm glad that I found your video and that forum post, it helped me decide to go ahead and buy it to add it to my arsenal and preps. Thank you very much for the video, keep up the good work. Your videos have actually had a very profound influence on what I buy and what I pass on buying. Thank you...job well done, bro.

DemArrowz: yeah, if you are gonna be hunting sheets of plywood you got to be careful. They are very tough. You should probably bring a hammer and some nails as a backup weapon in case your crossbow bolts don't kill it on the first shot....

Sara Kovač: dosadno

Franko S.: I agree about the bolts.  Use good quality aluminum for hunting and good quality carbon for target practice.  Try to keep the weights about the same so you do not have to change your sites when switching from target practice to hunting. Great review and wish you the best.

Franko S.: Excellent review.  I have been contemplating this one or the SA Sport Fever.  I like this one because it has a little longer power stroke. I think both of them are almost the same because after looking at the design and what they have there is not much difference except for the add on items like the scope, roostering rope etc with SA-Sport model.

Gage Roush: 80$ rural king about 130-140 total cause you'll need longer bolts and broadheads for hunting

Spacechief0: I've put 20in carbon arrows through 1 IN THICK PLYWOOD AT 180 FEET AWAY WITH THIS JAGUAR CROSSBOW SO IT DEFINITELY HAS THE POWER !

Jessica Metcalfe: I'm guessing the draw isn't adjustable?

IronheadOfScroteus: I just found one of these in great condition used at a flea market for $45! After a new string and limb tips (which had split), it works great. The previous owner didn't like how hard it was to draw and only shot it a few times. It IS a bear to draw, but you do get used to it. I've ordered a rope/pulley roostering device, tho'.

James Blanton: Bloody brilliant review mate, i seriously appreciate the info. I'm looking for a cheap entry level crossbow that has a reasonable punch, & this Jaguar seems to fit the bill. Cheers again for you're time & effort.

Brian A: Thanks for the excellent review! Much appreciated.

bubblefish17: Thank you for the good review! :) 

Bobby Whitter: Now $99 at rural king

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.

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.
