3 Tenpoint Nitro XRT ACUdraw Pro Crossbow Elite Package

Tenpoint Nitro XRT ACUdraw Pro Crossbow Elite Package

Cemented at the top of the food chain, the Nitro XRT is fueled by RX7 cams and our Vector Quad 4 cable system that generate unprecedented power and nock-breaking accuracy. Its center-mounted riser eliminates the “nose-heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and produces the smoothest shot on the market. Effortlessly draw the crossbow with the silent ACUdraw PRO and become a sniper in the woods with the EVO-X Marksman Scope.

The ACUdraw PRO is completely silent, fully integrated into the stock, and converts crossbow draw weights to 8.5-pounds of effort. It features an internal gear system that silently cocks the crossbow and reduces the number of cranks needed to do so. The ACUdraw PRO cocks a crossbow an incredible 43% faster than previous ACUdraw models. With an auto-engaging lever and ACUtorq crank handle (sold separately) that eliminates the possibility of over-cranking, it is the fastest, lightest, quietest, and safest cocking device on the market.

The most accurate crossbow scope on the market, the Marksman Precision Crossbow Scope is built to maximize performance in both hunting and competitive shooting situations. Waterproof and fog-proof, it features a variable speed and arrow drop-compensation setting for crossbows. Its configuration consists of five illuminated duplex crosshairs calibrated for 10-yard increments between 20- and 60-yards, and two non-illuminated duplex crosshairs at 70- and 80-yards for competition and recreational shooting. An infinite position rheostat controls the light intensity of the illuminated crosshairs. Its ultra-strong 30mm tube is equipped with etched glass reticles and fully multi-coated 1.5-6x optics that increase field-of-view in low light settings. The scope is outfitted with quick-detach scope rings, a bubble level, and high-quality flip-up scope caps.

The Evo-X CenterPunch 20-inch arrow is fletched slightly offset and is fitted with an 84-grain insert and TenPoint’s white SuperBrite Omni-Nock and receiver for quick lighted nock installation. Constructed from modulus carbon fiber at 33 MSI (million-pounds-per-square-inch) and wrapped in an exclusive LAZER-TECH carbon weave, it is fletched with 3.5" Bohning X Vanes. CenterPunch arrows are inspected for straightness to within .001 and each package is weight-grain matched to within 1-grain per arrow. The CenterPunch bolts have a .297 inch inside diameter and .348 outside diameter.

Designed for maximum protection and durability, this rigid, water-resistant case features an extremely durable shell, as well as a velvet interior for added protection. The interior of the case includes two hook and loop straps to secure the crossbow during travel, and storage for a quiver that also includes straps. An integrated stirrup pass-thru with storm flap allows you to hang the crossbow, in the case, for easy storage. If used with TSA approved locks, the case is TSA compliant.

What Customers Are Saying

Best crossbow out there

My old crossbow shot 330 FPS and this one is really about 450 FPS with the heavier bolt. But it So fast it is hard to see it fly unless you use the lighted bolts. You will need to upgrade your target as well. I have been crossbow hunting since 1989. I have had three TenPoints since I started and this one is amazing!
