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)

    How can you justify $1700 for a cross bow ?

  • JHJimbo

    I still have a Foxfire that shoots great (at least until the string finally goes Kaput). For less than $400 this is a great buy. I've been using a Horton since PSE stopped making xbows several years ago.

    I read $749 not $1700.

    This bow seems right in the middle of the most popular price points and far far far less expensive than comparable models.

    I know this becuase I submitted the information.

    If anyone is interested in the complete spec sheet and catalog pages on the New Maxcimus ERGO, Email me directly at

    Good luck to all this season.
