TenPoint’s New Venom Crossbow

 

TenPoint’s New Venom Crossbow:

Compact, Light and Speedy!

 

 

American hunters have been asking for lighter, more compact durable crossbows, and TenPoint delivered this year with the introduction of the Venom. It’s a crossbow that combines old and new technologies in a powerful hunting tool that weighs a mere 6.5 pounds, boasts a narrow, 13.25-inch bow assembly, and dresses up nicely in a Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity finish.

 

Hunters are raving about the Venom’s rugged yet lightweight carbon fiber barrel that is anchored by TenPoint’s exclusive Venom TP107_ProcessedFunctionally Superior Bullpup (FSB) stock. A 4-inch bullpup version of the PowerTouch trigger releases at just 3.5 pounds of pressure to unleash 185 pounds of draw. The effect is a TenPoint Pro Lite arrow that launches downrange at a blazing 372 feet per second.

 

“When we launched our carbon fiber technology in 2011, we knew it would change the landscape of our lineup for years to come,” said Rick Bednar, CEO of TenPoint Crossbow Technologies. “The Venom pairs that technology with a supercharged XLT bow assembly to deliver a compact, ultra light and fast crossbow that will be attractive to the most demanding of our customers.”

 

Configured with optimal comb height and length of pull, the FSB butt stock uses strategically placed cutouts or ports to reduce weight and improve balance. Its embedded carbon fiber barrel rests on rubber inserts and dual-purpose rubber safety wings to reduce noise and vibration and to help keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the flight deck. This new stock and shortened barrel configuration is a compact 34.7 inches long.

 

The bow assembly features TenPoint’s popular XLT  riser equipped with 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs. The company combined those existing features with its new Hybrid Eccentric 2 cams that have been optimized for the Venom design. Also new is the DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables with a hard yoke system. The result is an XLT bow assembly that is narrower than standard crossbows, with a longer-than-standard 13.25-inch power stroke.

 

Like all TenPoint models, the Venom also features TenPoint’s patented Dry-Fire-Inhibitor and comes equipped with ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50 cocking units and a RangeMaster Pro scope.

 

The model sells only as a complete package that includes six Pro Elite carbon arrows with Omni-Nocks, quiver, Ambidextrous Side-Mount Quiver Bracket, and Bowjax limb, stirrup, barrel, and retention spring dampeners.

 

The Venom ACUdraw model sells for $1,699, or just $1,599 with ACUdraw 50.

 

TenPoint is 100 percent USA owned and operated.  All TenPoint crossbows are made in Mogadore, OH.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.
