In my opinion this bow lacks necessary safe guards. I own one. I spent 5 hours in the hospital and 5 grand to have my thumb reattached.
If you have big hands it is very easy to get your thumb in front of the string. A simple guard would prevent this from happening. I even designed one form them, tried to tell them my story. It seems they don't even want to return my phone call.
I did a google search and found others this has happened to.
Barnett has no credibility in my mind.
