Mogadore, OH -( Wicked Ridge Crossbows, known for producing top value, precision performance crossbows, receives the Petersen’s Hunting Best Value Award.

The New Wicked Ridge Invader G3 Crossbow model was introduced this past January and has quickly become one of the most popular models at its price level. The Petersen’s Hunting Best Value Award is the ‘best-in-class’ product.

These products must exemplify the best blend of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity, and value. Hundreds of products are thoroughly tested by staff writers and editors in real-world conditions. The just-released Annual Gear Issue of Petersen’s Hunting reveals the crossbow model comparisons and dubs the Wicked Ridge Invader G3 the Best Value.

TenPoint and Wicked Ridge CEO, Rick Bednar comments, “We have made substantial improvements to the new Invader G3 and the Petersen’s Hunting Best Value Award signifies that these improvements further separate the Wicked Ridge brand from our competitors. The Invader G3 is safe, fast, light, and priced right. We appreciate that Petersen’s Hunting recognizes the quality we put into this bow at an affordable price.”

The Invader G3’s assembly consists of a newly designed, machined aluminum riser with strategically placed cutouts that reduce weight and increase strength. It is fitted with new, tactical-black limbs powered by a new Energy Wheel equipped with DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables with tunable yokes. This custom configuration produces a fast and maneuverable 330 FPS, 165-pound draw weight assembly that is only 19-inches axle-to-axle when cocked. The new, semi-skeletal stock design, molded with PlastiComp Duplēt, was not only designed to lighten the bow but also to help keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the bowstring release path.

It features a new pass-through foregrip backed up with new, longer, glass reinforced nylon safety wings fitted on the stock above the grip. In addition to these new safety features, the stock is also fitted with TenPoint’s DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and highly regarded 3.5-pound T2 trigger. The two assemblies combined, without accessories, weigh only 6.6 pounds.

I just bought an invader g3. Haven’t shot it yet and one side of the cocking device does not pull all the way up in the holder. Wondering if I can adjust the tension on it. It rattles against the stock which causes noise.

Make sure the hooks are lined up so the handles will push them back. I almost didnt buy mine because of rattle but son showed me how they went.
