(Mogadore, OH.) Industry leader TenPoint Crossbow Technologies is pleased to announce that their Carbon Nitro RDX crossbow has received one of the most coveted awards in the shooting and outdoor industry, the Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Award.
The Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Awards are the best-in-class products. These products must embody the ideal combination of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity, and value. Hundreds of products are thoroughly tested by staff writers and editors in real-world conditions. The just-released 2016 Annual Gear Issue of Petersen’s Hunting reveals impressive data that equally compared crossbow models qualifying for this award.
“We stand truly honored that our new Carbon Nitro RDX was chosen for the Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Award,” said Rick Bednar, President, Chairman, and CEO. “We designed this crossbow to offer our customers a true premium level reverse draw crossbow option, and they have been most impressed with how smooth the bow handles and performs.”
The Carbon Nitro RDX is one of four new crossbows from TenPoint in 2016 and features their highly successful wrapped carbon fiber barrel and a newly engineered carbon-fiber-infused polymer stock. The 20-inch wrapped carbon fiber barrel dramatically reduces weight, noise, and vibration. It is equipped with a 4 ½-inch bullpup version of the company’s 3 ½-lb. T3 auto-engaging safety trigger housed in a lightweight machined aluminum trigger box. Its weaver-style dovetail is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to further reduce noise and vibration. The three-piece C3™ stock also reduces weight, vibration, and noise, and is fitted with an adjustable cheek piece (comb) and butt plate to create perfect eye-level alignment and length-of-pull.
The ultra-narrow RDX bow assembly measures 10-inches axle-to-axle when cocked. Its machined, lightweight aluminum riser is fitted with TenPoint’s Over-the-Top limb pocket and Zytel Limb Suspension System that both separates and isolates the limbs from direct contact with the riser to reduce sound and vibration. The bow assembly’s 13-inch 165-pound limbs are powered by the bow’s custom RDX Cam System and DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables.
The bow and stock assemblies combine to create a perfectly balanced precision hunting machine that weighs 7.8-pounds, measures only 34.25-inches long, and shoots a supercharged 385 feet per second.
In addition, like all TenPoint models, this model is equipped with rubber safety wings that help prevent a shooter’s fore-grip fingers and thumb from moving above the flight deck while shooting the crossbow.
Equipped with the patented ACUdraw, or packaged with the NEW Dedd Sled 50 cocking mechanism, and illuminated RangeMaster Pro Scope, the Carbon Nitro RDX is double-dip fluid imaged in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo and sells only as a complete package.
Carbon Nitro RDX MSRP: $1,599 with Dedd Sled 50 or $1,799 with ACUdraw.
TenPoint Crossbow Technologies is 100% USA owned, operated, and manufactured in all of its crossbow models Mogadore, OH.
