Are you looking for the highest quality, American-made hunting crossbow at the most affordable price?  If so, you need look no further.  TenPoint Crossbow Technologies is excited to release two new hunting crossbow models under the American-made Wicked Ridge brand that are destined to be amongst the best affordable hunting crossbows for 2021:  the Wicked Ridge Blackhawk 360 and the Wicked Ridge NXT 400

The Wicked Ridge Blackhawk 360 is the lowest-priced American-made crossbow on the market, with a package price of just $399.99.  Shooting at speeds of up to 360 feet-per-second, the Blackhawk 360 is primed to outperform the growing number of import models in the entry-level hunting crossbow category. 

Blackhawk 360 Right

Perhaps the best hunting crossbow EVER available for less than $400.00, the Wicked Ridge Blackhawk 360’s narrow 175-pound bow assembly is built for success in tight shooting situations and consists of a lightweight aluminum riser and machined aluminum limb pockets fitted with 11-inch WRX laminated limbs, hydro-dripped in Peak camo.  Power by heavy-duty machined 5S Cams and DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables, the Blackhawk 360 measures a narrow 15-inches wide when cocked and launches arrows downfield up to a lightning-fast 360 feet-per-second! 

Blackhawk 360 Profile

The Blackhawk 360 features an ultralight, black tactical stock with a fully integrated fore-grip and safety wings that keep the shooter’s hand safely below the bowstring release path.  The stock also features a fully closed trigger guard and a picatinny rail below the front of the barrel to easily mount additional crossbow accessories.  The stock is also fitted with TenPoint’s ultra-crisp, 3.5-pound trigger mechanism and DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor).  Fully assembled, the Blackhawk 360 is an extremely light crossbow, weighing in at only 6-pounds total. 

The Wicked Ridge Blackhawk 360 hunting crossbow comes pre-sighted at 20-yards out-of-the-box and includes a TenPoint Multi-Line crossbow scope, three XX75 Alpha-Nock arrows, a rope cocker, and a quiver, all for just $399.99!  Best of all, the Blackhawk 360 is built right here in America by TenPoint in Mogadore, Ohio, and includes TenPoint’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service. 

The Wicked Ridge NXT 400 is the most accurate Wicked Ridge hunting crossbow that TenPoint has ever produced.  Measuring an ultra-narrow 6-inches wide when cocked and shooting at speeds of up to 400 feet per second, the NXT 400 features a combination of narrow width, speed, accuracy, and built-in cocking that is unrivaled on the market at just $1,099.99. 

NXT 400 Right

Fueled by XR6-Cams and featuring Vector-Quad cable technology, the NXT bow assembly is the difference maker for the high-performance NXT 400 crossbow. The maximum rotation cam system powers the bow assembly’s 200-pound DUAL FLEX limbs producing devastating speeds of 400 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow. Meanwhile, the revolutionary Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two for increased strength and stability, translating to reduced cam lean and cable stretch.

The bow assembly is mounted to a lightweight 21.5-inch machined aluminum barrel, which dramatically reduces noise, weight, and vibration. It is fitted with the TenPoint’s 3.5-pound auto-engaging safety T-5 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 trigger assembly is also equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor). An integrated string stop system is included that fits into the end of the barrel to reduce noise and vibration.  

NXT 400 Profile

The NXT 400‘s barrel and trigger assembly are embedded in TenPoint’s lightweight Functionally Superior Bullpup (FSB) stock. Molded from PolyOne OnForce and hydro-dipped in Peak camo, the high-tech stock is built with optimal comb-height and length-of-pull and uses strategically placed cutouts in the butt stock to reduce weight.  The stock is also equipped with dual-purpose safety wings to reduce noise and vibration as well as helping to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safe during the shot.  Fully assembled, the NXT 400 is an extremely light crossbow, weighing in at only 7.4-pounds.  

The Wicked Ridge NXT 400 hunting crossbow comes pre-sighted from the factory at 20-yards out-of-the-box and includes TenPoint’s 3x Pro-View illuminated scope, ACUdraw crank-style cocking device, three 400-grain Pro Elite 400 Carbon Crossbow Arrows, an integrated string stop system, and a quiver, all for just $1099.99!  Just like the Blackhawk 360, the NXT 400 is also built in America by TenPoint in Mogadore, Ohio, and includes TenPoint’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service.
