A high acceleration of the arrow in the first half of the barrel (in the area of the draw length).
The arrow receives the maximum power immediately after the shot. Thus, the arrow’s inertia is not erased and early symptoms of fatigue due to the high vibrations when shooting are possible. A higher abrasion might occur. This characteristic is not necessarily marring the functionality of the crossbow. The so far in point 22 mentioned characteristics apply to crossbows having a comparatively great bow and an accordingly great draw (e.g. Excalibur).
Smaller recurve crossbows like the Barnett are not subject to the context mentioned above in the same extend due to the smaller energy transfer.
