The crossbow has a very extensive history as a weapon of war, going back generations. Over time its use has evolved to become the weapon of choice for many hunters who love the nostalgic feel of a crossbow in their hands, and appreciate the advanced capabilities of a modern crossbow for hunting. Hunters have high expectations for the performance capabilities of their crossbows, and many prefer the highly advanced crossbows produced by Ten Point Crossbows.
Ten Point Crossbows has been producing crossbows for hunting for over twenty years. Many of the innovations that are available in the modern crossbow were the brainchild of founder Rick Bednar. These innovations included one of the earliest dry fire prevention systems called Dry-Fire-Inhibitor and a sound dampening system called VibraCush. Patents for these innovations were obtained in 1995, and the company has over 30 patents today.
Rick’s love of archery was instilled in him at a very early age by his father. Not only an elite tournament archer, Rick is also an avid hunter and knows what qualities are most important in a hunting crossbow. He designs his crossbows to be lightweight and powerful, easy to handle and dependable. Hunters need to know that the crossbows they carry into the field will perform under the harshest weather conditions, and on demand.
Today Ten Point Crossbows produces several of the highest-performing crossbows for hunting. The ultra-light Carbon Nitro RDX is a perfectly balanced premium hunting crossbow. Weighing in at only 7.8 pounds, it packs a punch achieving speeds up to 385 fps. It was chosen by Field and Stream as a Best of the Test crossbow and is a Peterson’s Hunting Editor’s Choice for good reason. It is quiet, efficient, light weight, and powerful, all essential qualities of a hunting crossbow.
The more economy-minded hunter might want to try out the Titan SS. It is the modern and most highly advanced version, of the ever popular Titan crossbow. Today’s model is the shortest and lightest Titan model, yet the most powerful, achieving a top speed of 340 fps.
Ten Point even produces a state-of-the-art crossbow geared to the female hunter. Produced with the Muddy Girl finish, a black and pink camo pattern, the Lady Shadow performs as well as any crossbow on the market. The lightweight bow weighs in at only 6.4 lbs. making it easy to handle and less taxing to carry in and out of the field. Despite its smaller size, it remains a powerful bow, achieving a top arrow speed of 350 fps. The bow is outfitted with hot pink cables and string for a sleek and stylish finish. Who says you can’t be fashionable while hunting?
