TenPoint Shadow Ultra-Lite Crossbow

posted on September 5, 2014

Yesterday we had the pleasure of visiting with the guys from TenPoint, and shooting their newest products. Of the two new iterations, the Shadow Ultra-Lite was a favorite for the ladies, and would be a hit with youths due to its 6.4-pound weight. The weight is kept low using a carbon-injected polymer barrel and trigger housing installed in the FSB stock. The bow is powered by a compact XLT bow assembly, and comes fitted with either an ACUdraw or an ACUdraw 50 cocking device for easy use.

Using the 3x Pro-View scope that comes mounted on a machined aluminum 7/8-inch fixed dovetail mount, you can quickly acquire your target and shoot 350 FPS straight into the bullseye like I did. The ease of use is unbelievable, and the whole package (which includes arrows, a quiver, scope and ambidextrous side-mount quiver bracket) is well worth the price. The MSRP with the ACUdraw is $1,119 and with the ACUdraw 50 is $1,019.

Length: 34.4"
Width Axle-to-Axle: 17.5"/13.5"
Power Stroke: 12.6"
Weight in Pounds: 6.4
Draw Weight in Pounds: 180
