The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word "drive" as, "To progress with strong momentum." I tell you this only because the next time you look up the word the verbiage may be gone, replaced by a simple photo of the team at Barnett Crossbows. Yes, Barnett has been a staple in the crossbow arena for years, and it's a team that is only getting stronger. In fact, according to Pete Angle, vice president of marketing for Synergy, Barnett has been leading the crossbow industry for over 50 years and has no plans of slowing down.

"Barnett leads by example," said Angle. "Each and every year this stellar company leads the industry with pioneering innovations and patents that truly set the crossbow world on end. Barnett's drive for perfection has cemented them as the world's number-one manufacturer of crossbows. Barnett is committed to delivering high-quality performance products with unparalleled service and value for all. Our products are built for maximum speed and efficiency and, most importantly, are built to heed the hunting call. You know when you put a Barnett in your hands, you're holding quality that you can depend on to get the job done."

Excitement and Barnett go hand in hand because the manufacturer delivers such an array of fine products each and every year. That being said, Angle did note that the industry needs to "strap in and buckle up" because Barnett's new-for-2014 crossbow is simply remarkable in every way.

"As always, it's difficult to say which product we are most excited about for 2014," Angle related. "We have new products to fit every hunter no matter their skill level or budget, and that's something that we feel really makes us unique. We want to provide something for everyone. This way, more hunters can get out and enjoy the outdoors and the great sport of hunting. I will say that The RAZR will be our flagship crossbow for 2014, and we are just thrilled with how this bow came together. We know we have a great product a product featuring the most advanced technology the industry has ever seen all while delivering incredible speed and the type of accuracy Barnett goers have come to depend on."

If Barnett has shown the industry anything, it's that it is extremely flexible and able to change with the times. According to Angle, we can all expect more of the same heading into 2014 and beyond.

"From the beginning, our engineers created a range of crossbows based on the changing needs and desires of today's hunters. For this reason, many in the crossbow nation have come to depend on Barnett. They know that Barnett has a relentless drive to produce bows that boast the best technology and innovation available. Lightweight, adjustable, and powerful, Barnett has committed to delivering high-quality performance products with unparalleled service and value. Honestly, that's something that will never change."
