COLUMBUS, Georgia –-(Ammoland.com)- TenPoint Eclipse RCX Crossbow in Realtree Xtra features an innovative reverse cam bow assembly and a time-tested stock and barrel configuration. The Eclipse RCX is TenPoint's latest response to a growing consumer preference for lighter, faster more compact crossbows.
At the heart of the crossbow’s efficiency is the bow assembly’s new RCX Cam System. Measuring 13.5-inches axle-to-axle when cocked, the bow assembly creates an increased power stroke, at 14-inches, for a crossbow measuring just 34.75-inches long. In addition, it allows the lightweight 140-pound bow assembly, equipped with 10.5-inch RCX limbs and new Brownell Rhino string and cables, to generate speeds up to 370 feet per second.
Its newly designed, machined aluminum riser features Over-the-Top limb pocket and Zytel Limb Suspension System both separates and isolates the limbs from direct contact with the riser to reduce sound and vibration, as well as pre-installed String Dampening Rods (SDR) that further reduce noise and vibration.
Following the footprint of previous popular models, the Eclipse RCX features a lightweight 19.6-inch carbon-injected polymer barrel embedded in the company’s popular FSB (Functionally Superior Bullpup) stock. With optimal comb-height and length-of-pull, the FSB stock uses strategically placed cutouts to reduce weight. The barrel is bedded on rubber inserts and dual-purpose rubber safety wings to reduce noise and vibration as well as helping to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the flight deck.
The combined stock and bow assemblies produce an ultra-narrow and light 140-pound draw weight model that weighs 6.9-pounds, measures only 34.75-inches long, and shoots a blistering 370 feet per second.
Like all TenPoint models, the Eclipse RCX features TenPoint’s DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and 3 ½-lb. auto-engaging safety trigger housed in a lightweight machined aluminum trigger box.
Equipped with the patented ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50, and illuminated 3x Pro-View 2 Scope, the Eclipse RCX is double-dip fluid imaged in Realtree Xtra camo.
The model sells only as a complete package that includes the cocking mechanism, scope, three Pro Elite carbon arrows, String Dampening Rods (SDR), and a quiver.
