With two of the fastest crossbows ever made topping this roundup, it's safe to state that the speed race is still running strong in the crossbow world-so much so that 400 ft per second today seems to be the new unofficial barrier to entry in the flagship category. But there are different improvements besides raw speed. Crank-style cocking devices are getting safer, easier, and quieter-a necessity since most high-energy crossbows can't likewise be used without them. Triggers continue to improve, too, and not just by being lighter. Product-recall course from a few years ago proved that ultralight trigger sears have their own limitations when it comes to holding 200-plus pounds of limb pressure. The most effective new crossbow triggers rival those found on nice rifles, and they're safer than ever too.
Why "The Stewart Edward White" Is Your Ideal Shooting Drill for Deer Hunting
As to general design, there are both some radical new systems and a few thoughtful updates from several heavyweight brands that have dominated our crossbow testing for many years now. While the costs of some have attained near-ridiculous levels, some stay comparatively reasonably priced.
For any new model to get any shot at winning our annual evaluation, it'll need to be damn near perfect. I can't wait to put them head-to-head this spring, but for now, here are top flagship versions that caught my eye in the 2020 ATA show.
Tenpoint Vapor Rs470 Vs Ravin R29x
Tenpoint Vapor Rs470 Vs Ravin R29x is one of the quickest, most-powerful crossbows available on the marketplace. TenPoint Crossbows
Specs: 8 pounds, 6-1/2 inches wide (cocked), 470 fps.
The Lowdown: The RS470 shoots up to 470 fps., and understanding that TenPoint bolts tack on the side signifies that this is most likely the most powerful crossbow available on the market. It's a reverse-draw system that really rotates the cams 404 degrees. It sports the new ACUSlide cocking mechanism and revived SW1 trigger.
First Appearance: A brand-new design for 2020, the RS470 is a powerhouse that is packed with advanced features. The quiet ACUSlide cocking mechanism seems much like the Ravin's cocking system, but with some stark differences. Even though de-cocking the bow, you can stop and even let go of the handle with no turning out of control. The trigger box, after cocked, also snaps into position using a release knob, giving a certain sign that the bow is cocked while removing tension on the cocking strap.
In the past, the triggers have been among my few complaints about TenPoint bows, but the new SW1 system seems to be a big improvement. It's a two-stage trigger with a promoted 3.5-pound pull weight. I spent only a bit of time with it on the range, but I enjoyed it. This will be a rough crossbow to conquer in this year's evaluation. $3,000 at https://huntinggiant.com is the useful.
