Cross's Dealer-Only Line of Crossbows

Cross's Dealer-Only Line of Crossbows

Even during the most brutal of battles, Cross clears the path to victory for both the hunter and dealer alike.  Cross is a dealer-focused brand offering crossbows that are packed with features that provide a new level of comfort and efficiency. Great performance at a reasonable price makes both the DOA and Hero easy to sell.

"With today's crossbow market being the most vertical segment of the outdoor industry, we are compelled to fill the largest void in the market and provide a premium high performance Dealer Only line of equipment that balances the entire industry," BJ Wolf, brand manager for Cross Crossbows, says.

The DOA features a best-in-class, first of its kind, shoot-through foot stirrup, which increases the power stroke to an impressive 16", producing speeds up to 385 feet per second. CarbonLite technology removes up to 43% of the weight from the front end so the center of gravity is moved back to the end of the stock, making the DOA comfortable and easy to shoulder. Available in Carbon and Realtree APG™, the DOA features high-velocity Whiplash cams and the Crosswire® String and Cable system. You can always expect a smooth 3.5lb trigger pull thanks to Cross's new ADF MIM trigger. A top performer, this bow is a favorite for the hunter looking for the highest level of performance and cutting edge design. The dealer package comes complete with a quiver, three arrows, rope-cocking device, illuminated scope and sling.

Meticulously designed, the Cross Hero is packed with features enabling better shooting performance, while retaining a high level of comfort and efficiency. The patented Quick Detach Front End makes breaking down the crossbow fast and easy. A push of a button disassembles the bow for efficient storage, eliminating the need for an oversized case. The Hero ships with Cross's new ADF (Anti-Dry Fire) trigger system and an adjustable cheek plate and butt stock for a custom fit. The Hero model features the Crosswire® String and Cable system for quieter, smoother shots and increased string life. The dealer package is complete with a quiver, three arrows, rope-cocking device and illuminated scope and sling.
