Thread: Tenpoint Stealth or Mission 320?

  1. #1

    Tenpoint Stealth or Mission 320?

    I am trying to decide witch one, I shot both of them and like both! there are pro's and cons in each of them as well. but the Mission is a heap cheaper, I like the way it shot, the stealth shot great to and I like the width and the accu-50,
    has anyone compared the two? I really need some guidence here! I was ready to pull the trigger and buy the stealth ss before I shot the mission, I am in a tizzy! HELP Please!!

    You said it best...pros and cons to each. You can save some $$$ with the 320 but TP is top notch. A lot of happy people on here shooting the 320. I believe Mathews quality will be right up there.

    i own neither but would definetly take a steath ss over the 320 the faster bow is always better down at these speeds...I m.o. accudraw = accuarcay
    Perfect arrow flight is the objective

    I have not shot both. But i have shot the MBX 320 so far its been a great bow. And i really like it. I don't think the speed between the two is that much. On there web sight they say 335 with a 420gr arrow. My 320 is shooting a BBE arrow 420grs at 321 so 14 fps is hardly a make or break speed. The poundage is about the same. The accudraw is a good feature.But adds weight. Both bows naked are very close to the same weight. The 320 is 3.4" shorter and you can change the string or buz cables with out a press.
    Both good bows backed by good companies.
    Good luck with your choice.

    Both such good bows theres no wrong answer and this one you have to make all on your own lol All I will say is if you were getting the mxb I'd get bare bow because none of their scopes are that great and if I were getting the SS I'd upgrade to the range master. Its a good scope and worth the extra $100. Not the proview 11 isn't a good scope but the range master is better and will sit up higher. The cheek weld is high on the SS. If they were both the same price it would be a no brainer....SS all day long but its hard times we live in and I know every dollar counts so it still comes down to no wrong answer....sorry :-)

    Well....I say if you like the Mission, then buy it. Take the money you save and get better optics/arrows. Maybe get a nice rangefinder.

    One was so good that Pin bought it twice!

    I've shot both a couple times, and it is the Stealth SS for me.

    I will probably get my head chewed off for saying this but this is only my opinion and I'll be honest, I have not shot or held the Mission but I do have the Stealth SS. I personally don't think the Mission looks like it built to be a hunting bow. The SS looks to be built much better and that it could take more abuse from hunting, I also noticed on a video of the 320 that the one the guy was shooting appeared to have a lot of down pressure on the string to the rail. Although it does look to be very light, it just doesn't look to be durable. Like I said, this is just my opinion.

    Wow! Such great and well thought out answers! Thanks a ton, the money is really not a issue because I sold a bow and have enough cabelas points to buy the stealth, also I have nerve damage in my hand so I most likely will need the accu draw, they both are nice nice bows . Thank you .

    This...

    But I have handled the Mission bow, but I have not shot it.

    For me it did not handle or shoulder as well as the Stealth SS. The Stealth SS was love at first handling for me.

    I now own a Stealth SS and really like it...

    Yep. I have a SZ350 also (and like it) but I still think the Stealth SS wins hands down.

    To me the Stealth fits much better and is more accurate. Im also using the same set up on arrows for both bows. But the fit just feels much better and I think that anytime you are more comfortable with something it will work better for you. Don't get me wrong though because the SZ is also shooting very accurate.

    Personal preferences :-) The cost difference (whether one can afford it or not) should be a deciding factor. I've written reviews on both crossbows and shot both quite a bit. The 320, which should actually be named 330, is much quieter shooting, lighter in weight and quality built as is the SS. I like both.....just 2 different concepts of what a hunting crossbow should be.........no help, huh?

    If I had the extra money I'd take the stealth. Both bows are very nice.

    That makes your decision for you then :-) Even though the 320 is easy to cock they don't have a cocking device as of now and in your situation get the stealth.
