Barnett TS370 is the younger brother of Barnett TS390. What sets them apart? Are the changes significant? Or should you go for the Barnett TS390 instead? So many questions and no answers. I am here to change that. In this Barnett TS370 review, I will try to point out all the differences between TS390 and TS370.
Together we will also find out which one is more worth it. I recommend you to read the full review instead of rushing to the end. Now that we got the disclaimer out of the way. Let’s get started.

The build quality of Barnett TS370 can go toe to toe with the TS390. Both of them are virtually the same crossbow with a different configuration. If you’re wondering, we have already done a Barnett TS370 vs Barnett TS390 comparison on TargetChaser.
As the Barnett TS370 is smaller than TS390, the weight of TS370 drops at 6.9 lbs. We can easily consider TS370 as a lightweight crossbow.
It may not seem lightweight when you bring in crossbows like Ravin R10 on the discussion. If we bring in the big gun, you need to bring the price in the discussion.
Design is a matter of preference. Like the TS390, I loved the look of the TS370. Barnett made a brilliant choice by going for this finish. It suits the crossbow well and highlights all the beautiful parts of the crossbow.
The power of TS370 is also lower than TS390. We can’t forget TS370 comes at a much lower price. Barnett had to cut costs somewhere. I am glad they did it here instead of making a crossbow out of garbage material.
You can fire a 380-grain arrow with 115 ft-lbs of kinetic energy. We are missing 13 ft-lbs kinetic energy here. Do that 13 lbs make that big of a difference?
The result would surprise you. Both of them perform similarly. Despite having a difference in power and FPS. It makes a difference when we get out of our comfort zone and aim for a long-range target.
Crossbows aren’t the fastest boy around. Once again, the name spoils the speed of the crossbow. Barnett TS370 can fire a 380-grain arrow at 370 FPS.That’s 20 FPS slower than the bigger TS390. The difference is so small that you won’t even notice it’s there.
Again, it will make a big difference in the long-range shooting. We don’t recommend this crossbow for 100 yards of shooting. With 115 ft-lbs kinetic energy and 370 FPS of speed, you can nail any target at the big-game.
The draw weight of this crossbow is the same as TS390. Both of them have 187lbs draw weight. You can cut that draw weight by half using a rope cocker. But the stock draw weight is a nightmare for any beginner. I highly recommend using a rope cocker. It will save you a lot of time and struggle.
Noise is another thing that the manufacturer often ignores. I wish I could praise Barnett on this step too. Barnett slept on the noise dampeners. You can still opt for Barnett’s string dampener, but that will cost you extra.
It was a dangerous move from Barnett. If this is a deal-breaker for you, I can understand that. It was on the verge of being a deal-breaker for me too. But the rest of the pros of this crossbow outweighs the con.
Barnett TS370 Crossbow Review Summary
Besides that noise dampening move, which made many people angry, Barnett TS370 is an excellent crossbow. It easily outclasses a lot of crossbows priced similarly. The included scope is quite good too.
If the extra power and speed is not a deal-breaker for you, Barnett TS370 is the one to get. I hope you enjoyed this Barnett TS370 review. I enjoyed myself while writing this one.
