Hottest New Compound Bows and Crossbows From the 2018 ATA Show

The bow show is back. Both models are also available in 65-pound draw models (a much welcomed option) as well as standard 10-pound increments ranging from 40 to 70 pounds. Selling for $499, this 32.375-inch bow weighs in at 3.8 pounds and delivers speeds up to 308 fps. The draw length is easily adjustable from 18-26.5 inches and a weight range of 15-60 pounds. The new ZT Hyper cam allows for three inches of draw length adjustment and has plenty of zip with speeds up to 340 fps. The bow sells for $1,099. The R20 platform features a total length of 34.5 inches with the same narrow profile as previous models (six inches when cocked). A riser level comes standard with the package as well. It throws arrows at 410 fps and is available in a package that includes TenPoint’s new EVO-X line of premium accessories (the package includes the EVO-X Marksman scope and EVO-X CenterPunch arrows). This creates a crossbow system unlike others including controlled acceleration that Mission claims is a key to accuracy.
