Featuring comfortable, soft-touch handles, it allows for near effortless cocking, while providing a solid connection to the string for maximum safety.

Every hunter knows that when in the field, you're only as good as your equipment, and when the moment of truth arrives, you may only have one shot. For this reason, your crossbow needs to be in top working order at all times. Your trip to and from your hunting location can damage and dirty your bow, preventing it from performing at its peak. Cross provides premium crossbow protection with an assortment of cases, and when the trek is long and your body is weary, Cross's sling helps shoulder the burden.

Available in either black or Realtree APG™, The Cross Premium Case blends both hard and soft case technology, allowing for maximum versatility and protection. This case protects your crossbow in a cushion of the same dense, pliable foam found in Crocs™ Shoes. A hard outer shell with a "living" foam insert protects your scope, while a molded corner protects the cams.The standard soft-sided Crossbow Case not only protects your bow, but also provides for easy access to your hunting and shooting accessories. Designed for user comfort and convenience, this case features additional roomy compartments perfect for your quiver, accessory case and more. The attention to detail is evident in its features, such as the padded, removable shoulder strap.

In even less than perfect conditions, the Cross Crossbow Sling offers extreme grip while remaining pliable and supple to the touch. Made to fit any brand of crossbow, the Cross Crossbow Sling adjusts from 32" to 40" and has quick-release clips for ease of use and storage.

Last but not least, the new Cross Soft Grip adds that perfect feel and look to your Crossbow. The grip is specifically designed to reposition the shooter's hand under the bow for a more natural feel. This allows the shooter to swing the front of the bow with more control and precision that results in faster target acquisition and quicker shots. Made from a very soft pliable rubber, it provides maximum comfort, is easy to install and fits all Barnett and Cross crossbows made in the last three years.
