Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

Have shot one quite a few times. Not the fastest bow on the market but I am not a speed guy so speed is low on my list of what I like in a bow.

I like the XLT narrow limb technology. Great for hunting out of tree stands. The acudraw50 is the best rope cocking system on the market, IMO. The bow is also very quiet as far as crossbows go. TenPoint is also a standup company to do business with if you need them.

TenPoints are on the heavy side with some of the weight towards the front. That is my only negatives.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

Just my opinion, but I would save just a little more and get the Stealth SS. Not a lot more money, but much more bow and the weight is balanced better. The Stealth is one of the best bows out there this season. The barrel is mounted in rubber and it's shock free. Shorter, so it balances better. Great crossbow. Just my opinion though.

Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

I'm shooting 2 inch groups from a rest with my Turbo XLT II. That's good enough for me. I may try 50 yds but would never shoot at one at that distance. Don't think there will be enough KE to kill.

Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

I bought one last year when they came out and love it, but to be honest I don't have alot to compare it to. As dpms said, the narrow limbs are great when hunting out of a stand, or even just sneaking through the thick stuff.

Its kind of a big deal.

Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

Ended up finding my dad a great deal on Turbo XLT II. I did see the Stealth SS next to the Turbo and it looked much smaller and easier to handle. The price difference was too much or he probably would have got that. Maybe trade up in a couple years. I'll provide feedback on how he likes it.

Great choice. Solid as they come for compound styles.

Re: Tenpoint Turbo XLT II

Yeah, just couldn't justify paying twice as much for the Stealth SS, but man was it appealing. I have a feeling most of Tenpoint's bows in the future will become more compact like that one.

I think all crossbows are going to get lighter, smaller and faster. That is what we are seeing the market driving towards right now. Lighter,smaller and faster sells, and the manufacturers are responding to that with bows that meet the demands of the consumer. There is plenty of competition in the crossbow market with startup companies trying to capture a share of the market and everyone will be forced t step up or fade away. Either way, the consumer wins.
