Centerpoint CP400 Review: High-End But Would That Be The Best!

Crossbows from CenterPoint are renowned for being reasonably priced. The majority of the time, premium markets are where manufacturers compete. The budget line item is vacant like a goalpost. CenterPoint makes the most of it.

The CenterPoint CP400 is a fantastic crossbow with a lot of value for the money. We at TargetChaser enjoy getting the most value for our money. The CP400 is exactly that. Let’s explore the benefits of choosing the CP400 over comparable-priced crossbows.

Centerpoint CP400: Outlooks

Specifications Speed: 400 FPS; Kinetic Energy: 142 ft.lbs; Power Stroke: 13 Inches; Draw Weight: 200 LBS; Axle To Axle: 6 / 10.5 Inches; Length: 31.75 Inches; Weight: 7 LBS.

Build Quality

As usual, CenterPoint didn’t let us down with the specifications for this crossbow. You can tell it’s a killing machine just by looking at the sheet. This kind of killing equipment demands high-quality construction. There is no purpose in purchasing something if it won’t last for your needs. Fortunately, that’s not the situation here.

I haven’t often heard anybody criticize the design of a CenterPoint crossbow, save from a few extremely old crossbows with QC concerns. Problems with quality control can occur to anyone. Holding them prisoner for that serves no purpose.

Without any accessories, the crossbow weighs 7 lbs. That’s a little on the high side for a naked crossbow. When the accessories are included, the weight will rise even more. But I won’t describe it as a heavy crossbow. The overall construction and small size make up for the slightly higher weight.


The CenterPoint CP400 crossbow is a potent weapon. even though the CP400’s power stroke is just 13″. The crossbow has a 142 ft-lbs kinetic energy production capacity. For any kind of hunting and shooting, that is more than sufficient.

This might be the most cost-effective choice for you if you’re seeking for a crossbow for big-game hunting.


The CenterPoint CP400 can achieve up to 400 FPS, as its name suggests. Everyone is aware that 400 FPS is more than sufficient for all types of hunting and target practice. Any object you place in front of the CP400 will completely destroy it.

This crossbow has astounding accuracy as well. You have a lethal crossbow in your hands when you combine speed, power, and accuracy.

Pull Weight

The draw weight of compound crossbows is not something I really give much thought to. The draw weight is often relatively light. With the manufacturer-provided cranking help, it can be lowered.

You can choose to have a built-in silent cranking device for the CP400. After installing that, the draw weight will be in the range of 10 to 12 lbs. The crossbow’s draw weight without the cranking help is 200 lbs. Which is not bad for such a potent crossbow.

If you don’t want to use the cranking aid, you may always use a rope cocker to reduce the draw weight by half.

Vibration and Noise

The crossbow is fairly quiet when it is first opened. I’m not suggesting that you increase the silence. But you can if you so choose. The limb suppressors entirely stop all limb sounds and vibration. It becomes a silent and lethal crossbow.

Silent crossbows are essential for hunting. You don’t want the target to learn where you are.


  • Excellent build quality.
  • Compact and short.
  • 142 ft-lbs of kinetic energy.
  • 400 FPS.
  • 5 years warranty.


  • A bit short for tall people.
  • The cranking aid is not included. It’s an add-on.

Summary of the Centerpoint CP400 Review

I want to remind you all once more. It doesn’t cost that much. Just consider the value it is providing. You can save money and have a powerful crossbow in your hand if you choose to forgo the cranking aid and use a rope cocker instead.

However, I still advise you to purchase the cranking help. Let’s face it, anyone using this crossbow intends for it to last at least five years. You’ll save a ton of time and energy over the course of those five years by using a cranking aid. In all honesty, it’s an unbeatable crossbow at this pricing. I hope the review was enjoyable. till our next meeting.
