The TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow Package is high end. It boasts a 470 FPS velocity while its ACU draw PRO cocking system all but negates the 225 pounds of force necessary to cock this machine. Its advanced T5 trigger is state-of-the-art and negates almost all trigger pull-based inaccuracies.
One of the most common reasons for a crossbow to fire inaccurately is because the arrow and the string are misaligned. Even slight misalignments as the arrow is fired can create large trajectory errors downrange. The TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow’s custom Alpha-Nock technology gets rid of that issue, as it keeps the string and the nock snugly aligned right up until the arrow is released. This new Alpha-Nock system increases string-to-knock engagement by 28%, leading to far fewer off-center shots.
•The is an all-inclusive system, so no pricey accessories are necessary. Included in this package are: an EVO-X Marksman Scope with dovetail mount, six EVO-X Center Punch Premium Carbon arrows, a three-arrow quiver with left-or-right-handed side-mount bracket, a STAG hard case, and a neoprene carry sling. Truly, this is everything you need.
The PSE Fang HD Pro Crossbow is ideal for a new crossbow enthusiast. That does not mean this is an underpowered “starter bow,” though, so do not be confused. This is a powerful weapon. It boasts a speed of 405 FPS, meaning this bow is formidable enough to successfully hunt any type of animal.
The crossbow does have a 205 lb. draw weight, meaning that this is not going to be a quick or quiet bow to reload, at least at first. However, with practice, a competent hunter can reload a 205 lb. draw in a manner of seconds. This kit also comes with a DV-425 1.5-5x32mm variable zoom scope, a fully adjustable butt stock, a foot stirrup, a five-arrow quiver, and limb dampeners and string suppressors to cut down on noise and vibration.
If you are in the market for a beginner crossbow that still has the power to get the job done, consider the PSE Fang HD Pro Crossbow. It is not flashy but it is a highly efficient, well manufactured weapon.
This is another all-inclusive kit that is perfect for a new hunter or an experienced hunter looking to upgrade. The BearX Constrictor Ready-to-Hunt Crossbow Package is tailor-made for hunting in deep woods and tight spaces. It measures 10 in. axle to axle when cocked and 14 in. uncocked, so this is a very compact weapon that will go anywhere with you.
With a speed of 410 FPS, the BearX Constrictor is powerful enough to take down any size game animal. Weighing in at only 7.8 lbs., this weapon will not weigh down your hunt. With one of the sleekest designs on the market, the BearX Constrictor would not look out of place on the mantle or hanging above a fireplace. It is truly a beautiful machine.
This weapon does have a 190 lb. draw. While this is not the heaviest draw on the market (or even the heaviest draw on this list), it is something to keep in mind. For any shooter that has not used a cocking rope before, this 190 lb. draw will take some getting used to. However, once a shooter is comfortable with reloading the BearX Constrictor, it is the perfect bow to take with you on just about any trip.
This is a kit that includes almost everything necessary to outfit a crossbow hunt, including a reliable anti-dry fire device, three BearX TrueX arrows, an illuminated scope, rail lube, string wax, and an adjustable sling for ease of transport.
The TenPoint Vapor RS470 Elite Crossbow is one of the most powerful crossbow-style weapons available on the market today. Its superior TenPoint design means it can reach a max speed of 470 FPS, meaning that this crossbow can fire an arrow faster than some 22 caliber rimfire rifles. That is an incredible engineering feat, and far from the only impressive thing about the Vapor RS470 Elite Crossbow.
This model also includes TenPoint’s new 3.5 lb. trigger break, which offers a huge improvement in accuracy compared to older models. A rife-like trigger pull reduces the torque and shift created by heavier trigger pulls, meaning this crossbow can deliver accurate, repeatable shots time after time.
Another feature unique to this model is TenPoint’s safe de-cocking system, which contains two stainless-steel rollers within the trigger box. The rollers allow the crossbow to be safely, smoothly, and silently de-cocked with minimal effort.
The ability to de-cock silently is something that a hunter does not truly appreciate until he has to de-cock his bow to climb over a fence or crouch under a fallen tree. A loud de-cocking mechanism can alert every animal within a 200-yard radius of your presence, so these stainless-steel rollers that TenPoint has designed should not be discounted as a gimmick. They could literally be the difference between a successful hunt and going home empty-handed.
Another point of convenience for this weapon is the new Xtend crank handle, which can be adjusted between 5 in. and 7.5 in. when employed, this handle allows this weapon to be cocked with an amazingly light five pounds of force. The Xtend crank is stored in the butt of the bow for ease of access.
This is absolutely a high-end weapon. However, for a serious crossbow hunter, the Vapor RS470 Elite is too good to pass up. Quality equipment warrants a high price, and this crossbow is unquestionably high quality. If you are ready to graduate from using a rope cocker to an elegant and feather-light crank cocking crossbow, the Vapor RS470 Elite cannot be beat.
As this is a kit, the TenPoint Vapor RS470 Elite Crossbow package contains everything a hunter will need including.
