With two of the fastest crossbows ever produced topping this roundup, it is safe to say that the pace race is still running strong from the crossbow world-so much so that 400 feet per second today appears to be the new unofficial barrier to entry in the flagship category. However there are other improvements besides raw speed. Crank-style cocking devices are getting safer, easier, and quieter-a requirement since most high-performance crossbows can not even be used without them. Triggers continue to enhance, too, and not only by being lighter. Product-recall course from a couple of years ago demonstrated that ultralight trigger sears have their own limits when it comes to holding 200-plus lbs of limb pressure. The most effective new crossbow triggers rival those found on nice rifles, and they are safer than ever as well.
Why "The Stewart Edward White" Is Your Best Shooting Drill for Deer Hunting
As to overall design, you will find both some revolutionary new systems and some thoughtful updates from several heavyweight brands that have dominated our crossbow testing for several decades now. While the costs of a few have reached near-ridiculous levels, a few remain relatively affordable.
For any new version to get any chance at winning our yearly test, it will have to be damn near perfect. I can not wait to place them head-to-head this spring, but for now, here are leading flagship versions that caught my attention in the 2020 ATA show.
Tenpoint Vapor Rs470 Vs Ravin R29x
Tenpoint Vapor Rs470 Vs Ravin R29x is among the fastest, most-powerful crossbows on the marketplace. TenPoint Crossbows
Specs: 8 lbs, 6-1/2 inches wide (cocked), 470 fps.
The Lowdown: The RS470 shoots up to 470 fps., and knowing that TenPoint bolts err on the side means this is most likely the most powerful crossbow available on the market. It is a reverse-draw system which actually rotates the cams 404 degrees. It matches the new ACUSlide cocking mechanism and revived SW1 trigger.
First Look: A brand-new design for 2020, the RS470 is a powerhouse that's packed with innovative features. The quiet ACUSlide cocking mechanism looks much like the Ravin's cocking system, but using some stark differences. While de-cocking the bow, then you can stop and also let go of the handle with no spinning out of control. The cause box, once cocked, also snaps into position with a release knob, providing a certain signal that the bow is cocked while removing strain on the cocking strap.
Before, the causes have been among my few complaints regarding TenPoint bows, but the new SW1 system appears to be a big improvement. It is a two-stage trigger having an advertised 3.5-pound pull weight. I spent just 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 test. $3,000 at https://huntinggiant.com is the useful.
