Re: wicked ridge warrior

Been shooting TenPoints(makers of Wicked Ridge) for three years now. Have shot both the Warrior and Invader. IMO, the Wicked Ridge bows are the best entry level bows in the market right now.

They are not the fastest bows in the world but are solid all the way around and backed by a company that truly cares about its customers.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: wicked ridge warrior

I have an Invader HP that I bought on the anti gun auction site for $412. The warrior goes for about $350 any time. There are 2 of each model. The one with the red dot is cheaper. I'm a scope guy myself and the included scope is plenty good for deer sized targets at normal archery ranges.

That said, I studied crossbows intensively before purchase, and believe that wicked ridge as a brand is the best for the money. This includes durability, speed, warranty and other things like the accudraw system.

All in all, I have been very satisfied with my WR.

Re: wicked ridge warrior

Not to jump in and tell you to get a different xbow but..
You may want to look into ones with the inverted Limbs. Much easier to maneuver.. String isn't exposed so won't get caught on things if you are stalking through the woods. I can actually cock an inverted one from a climber but one with regular limbs is darn near impossible. Just something to thing about but really depends on your hunting style.
Crossbows are dang fun to hunt with!

Re: wicked ridge warrior

The Warrior is awesome. Comes very highly recommended from crossbow dealers selling much more expensive bows.

I love mine and Ten Point has great customer service

Re: wicked ridge warrior

I bought one last year and have been very happy with it. This was my first crossbow so I didnt want to spend a ton of money, but figured if its made by ten point its got to be pretty solid. I have had zero issues with it.

Re: wicked ridge warrior

I was told by the archery department at a bass pro shop that WR is the one that is least returned for service or repair. Pick mine up tomorrow

Re: wicked ridge warrior

Why sell your Bow? Use your vertical bow early in the season when the weather is warmer then switch to the horizontal one later when you need to bundle up.

Double the fun.
