Find out more about the model that suits you best

The Ballista Bat is an excellent choice for small game hunting and for entertainment. If you want to have a fun time with friends and family or go hunting, for example, rabbits or bobcats, then the Ballista Bat will not disappoint you. And of course, bowfishing – even teenagers can do it with this crossbow!

The Ballista Bat Reverse, while remaining as convenient and compact as the regular Bat, provides you with more opportunities. It’s for big game hunting, such as boars, deer or bears at distances of up to 25-30 yards. More power, speed, and penetration if you need it!

The fastest

The world's fastest compound pistol crossbow

Ballista BAT is the world’s lightest crossbow with an arrow speed of up to 330 FPS. The unique design of the crossbow uses additional polistpasses of the sliderless cable system – the least amount of friction between parts among all crossbows. The minimum of plastic parts. The possibility of changing the position of the polistpasses provides for an algorithm for self-accelerating the crossbow above the nominal value.

THE MOST COMFORTABLE

smaller in width than a human hand!

The width of the crossbow when loaded is even less than the average palm of a person. It is so convenient in use that sometimes it may seem like you’re using a handgun instead of a crossbow. Forget the uncomfortable bulky devices and enjoy shooting!

When disassembled, fits into a 5x10x25cm case.

THE MOST COMPACT

FITS INTO A REGULAR BACKPACK

Ballista BAT crossbow does not need a special case. It is so compact that it fits into a regular 30 liter backpack that you probably already have at home. Unlike other crossbows, Ballista BAT will not stick out or hang from your backpack, creating a lot of inconvenience for you.

Innovative system of crossbow loading

Loading a crossbow has never been easier. Ballista BAT is the only crossbow in the world with a built-in self-retracting cord tensioner. With this technology, loading the crossbow is quick, easy and noiseless! Therefore, even women and teens can easily handle this crossbow.

In cramped conditions, this system allows for instant and silent reloading that hunters and anglers will appreciate.

Unique ammunition

Arrows for entertainment
& hunting

Ballista BAT is the only pistol crossbow that can be used with arrows for both casual shooting and hunting. The crossbow is versatile in ammunition; it can shoot arrows, harpoons and darts, with both flat and crescent rear nock, and both standard minimized and conventional arrow fletching.

The Ballista STING versatile hunting ammunition has been designed specifically for the crossbow. At the heart of these arrows is a highly penetrating 6mm carbon shaft and penetrator adapter inserts with which you can use any hunting broadheads on the market.

I did not expect this to be such a powerful weapon. It was exactly what I was looking for, even better!! I live in New York, I just moved into a new area, low security and wanted something on hand that I can use to defend myself with. I did not want to go out and get a gun license since there are so many laws around it, especially if I even had to use it in a moment of need. Using a gun in New York, regardless of self-defense in your home is a very sticky legal subject, and I would not want to be penalized for defending myself

This was very easy to put together. I fired a few practice rounds in a secluded piece of land, that I own with capture targets, and the arrows were unrecoverable. That’s how serious and strong this weapon is. It’s not your basic bow and arrow set up. It’s a real weapon, I’m kind of surprised they sell this on Amazon but I am grateful. Having this gives me such a sense of security and defense. Any single woman, living alone should definitely buy this item and get comfortable firing it. It goes beyond pepper spray and a taser gun.

My first review was was made out of frustration and I only gave 1 star. I was finally able to get in contact with the warranty department and the problem was solved. It did take almost 2 weeks before a part was even shipped out to me. It turned out that for some reason my crossbow had extra bolts screwed into the firing mechanism. I think designed to keep it from firing. Instead it let it fire, but jammed the down so it couldn’t reload. In case anyone else has a similar issue. For the size of the bow it does produce some impressive power. Could be use on small game, I imagine. I’m setting my bow up for fishing. Should help make that a bit more entertaining. Made my friend laugh when they’re all setting their poles up and I busted a crossbow out. Of course, everyone had to try it out. So you’ll want plenty of arrows. I called it a desk prob in my first review because of a reliability issue and concerns. However, after getting that issue fixed. It’s a solid tool, that will mostly be used to get laughs and curiosity involvement. The compatibility in its size makes for a perfect backpack fishing bow. I wish there was a model set up explicitly for that usage. That way with the price point wouldn’t out weigh the bow. Since there wasn’t I had to drop over another $100 for the real, adapter, and 3 arrows. Could of purchased a good fly rig or very nice rods and reels. But that’s not for me, when doing some Louisiana fishing is an option.

Powerful for its size, seams fairly accurate I like it, but string broke on the 22nd shot while sighting in, arrow went flying, it came undone at the left anchor point. New string is $40 from ballista, how long will the new string last? Might go to my local archery shop and see what they can do for me.

Arrows have a heavy insert that accept regular broadheads. With a 100gr 3 blade broadhead it is very heavy. My Mini Striker crossbow pistol had a 4–5-inch drop at 10 yards. I found less drop using a 100gr 2 blade broadhead and better penetration. Less wind drag and cutting surface I guess. I got better penetration and less drop with William tell arrows and 100gr 2 blade broadheads on foam target.
