The crossbow nation grows daily and so do the number of new crossbows available to hunters across the U.S.
Faster and Lighter
TenPoint’s new Carbon Elite XLT marries the woven carbon fiber barrel technology from last year’s revolutionary Carbon Fusion CLS with streamlined XLT (Xtreme Limb Technology) limbs to create the fastest (348 fps), lightest (6 pounds, 14 ounces) member of the popular XLT group. The 185-pound draw-weight Carbon Elite XLT measures 13 1/2 inches axle-to-axle when cocked, and the riser comes with a detachable aluminum foot stirrup. Its 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs are double laminated for improved strength and durability and are equipped with new MRX Cams and D-75 string and cables. The wrapped carbon fiber barrel is fitted with threaded aluminum rivet nuts that “float” it inside the stock to further reduce noise and vibration, while the barrel’s flight deck has an extremely low coefficient of friction that promotes improved string life. Other highlights include TenPoint’s patented DFI (dry-fire inhibitor), highly regarded 3 1/2-pound PowerTouch trigger and patented GripSafety. It is finished in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity and sold only as a package that includes a soft case, carbon arrows, silencer kit and quiver. It’s also equipped with an ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50 cocking unit and the RangeMaster Pro scope.
MSRP: $1,699 (with ACUdraw) or $1,599 (with ACUdraw 50)
