Who to trust?
I race and do ice racing in the winter here up north in canada, I am purchasing this barnett clutch but I have worries. i read all the reviews and there are a lot of awesome reviews from top contributers. But there are also a lot of bad reviews from guys saying it started slipping during second moto's or in a week and stuff like that. My guess is that they did not let it soak in oil. Is there an expert answer or does motosport use these clutches in their race teams? hmm... I'm going to give it a shot anyway

It really depends on who you ask. I've ran Barnett for years and have been happy with them. Like you said, some reviews are bad and i'm not saying they installed the clutch wrong or anything but there are so many different variations in riding styles, types of riding, oils people use, did they soak the plates etc etc so it's really hard to say that some of the problems people have had are due to quality or manufacturing issues.
Just like any other product on the market, some like em', some dont.
