TenPoint Introduces Carbon Tactical XLT™
Mogadore, OH. Crossbow industry leader, TenPoint Crossbow Technologies®, has announced a limited mid-year introduction of their new Carbon Tactical XLT crossbow. The Carbon Tactical XLT combines TenPoint’s radically compact XLT™ (Xtreme Limb Technology) bow assembly with their revolutionary woven carbon fiber barrel – all fitted to a rugged, clear-coated tactical black stock. Without accessories the unit weighs in at 6-pounds, 14 ounces.
“The Carbon Tactical XLT release is a pre-2013 limited test run,” said TenPoint CEO, Rick Bednar. “It will give us time to gauge the response and gear-up for full production in January.”
The XLT bow assembly measures a streamlined 13.5-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked, and the riser comes with a detachable, lightweight, coated aluminum foot stirrup. Its tactical black 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs™ are equipped with NEW MRX™ cams and D-75 string and cables. With a 185-pound draw weight, the Carbon Tactical XLT shoots up to 352 feet-per-second with TenPoint’s Pro Lite carbon arrow.
The patent-pending ultra-light wrapped carbon fiber barrel is unique to the industry and one of TenPoint’s responses to the ongoing demand for lighter and quieter equipment. The barrel is fitted with threaded aluminum rivet nuts that “float” it inside the stock to reduce noise and vibration. And, its flight deck has an extremely low coefficient of friction to extend string life.
The Carbon Tactical XLT is one of the first crossbows in the TenPoint lineup to come equipped with the company’s patent pending String Dampening System (SDS), also just released. A unique cable-slot-mounted string stop, the SDS dramatically reduces string noise and vibration transmission.
"We are excited to launch the Carbon Tactical XLT crossbow,” said TenPoint CEO, Rick Bednar. “It is fast, light, and narrow; and we believe that it will appeal to the growing tactical weapons crowd."
The Carbon Tactical XLT also features the expected collection of TenPoint’s patented features: DFI™ (dry-fire inhibitor), 3.5-pound PowerTouch™ trigger, GripSafety™, GripGuard, and either their ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50 automated cocking system.
The bow is sold only as a package, which also includes their RangeMaster Pro™ variable speed and power scope,, arrows, quiver, new Side-Mount Quiver bracket, and BowJax limb and arrow retention spring dampeners.
Tactical XLT MAP: $1599 with ACUdraw, $1499 with ACUdraw 50.
All TenPoint crossbows are manufactured in Mogadore, OH.
