Meet the TenPoint Flatline 460™
The Fastest Compact Crossbow Ever Created
TenPoint Crossbows continues its dominance in crossbow speed, accuracy, and shoot-ability with the fastest compact crossbow the world has ever seen – the NEW Flatline 460.
Designed to deliver elite performance from the smallest footprint possible, the Flatline shoots a blistering 460 feet-per-second, measures only 26.5” short, and is equipped with all-new Scope Struts that provide rock solid mounting for the scope – delivering unrivaled durability and accuracy.
“The Flatline 460 is designed for the hardcore hunter – the hunter who walks a little further, sits a little longer, and needs to make the most of that split second opportunity when it presents itself,” said Phil Bednar, CEO. “With its micro footprint – including shorter 16-inch arrows – it provides all the advantages of a low profile without sacrificing speed or accuracy.”
At the heart of the Flatline’s speed and power is a patented reverse-draw bow assembly and 14-inch power stroke. By reversing the bow assembly and changing the riser mounting position, the string’s resting position is extended farther down the rail which creates a 47% longer power stroke than a forward draw crossbow measuring the same length. This increased power stroke provides many advantages over forward draw crossbows:
- Generates top-end speeds that no forward draw crossbow can match
- Generates more speed with less draw weight – creating a smoother, quieter shot, with less shock and vibration
- Creates a longer nock-to-string engagement time during the shot – leading to greater accuracy
In addition, the center-mounted riser provides superior balance, eliminating the “nose heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady, increasing the shooters accuracy.
The Tech Behind the Flatline 460
The RX8-Cam™ system allows for maximum rotation to produce speeds of 460 feet-per-second with the included 400-grain arrow. The crossbow’s revolutionary Vector-Quad™ cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel leading to same-hole down-range accuracy.
The 16-inch MICRO-TRAC™ barrel reduces string-to-barrel contact by 50% to provide increased accuracy and the longest string life in the industry – surpassing competitor crossbows by hundreds of shots.
The Flatline 460’s ultra-light, two-piece TEC-TACTICAL™ stock is built for comfort for shooters of all sizes and includes an adjustable butt plate that adjusts 1” to provide ideal fit.
Shorter Flat Shooting Arrows
To complete the compact footprint, the Flatline 460 uses shorter, 16-inch EVO-X® CenterPunch™ carbon arrows. The advantages of this arrow extend beyond its compact footprint in the quiver and lack of overhang on the crossbow – the shorter arrow provides a flatter trajectory and reduced wind drift at longer ranges as compared to a 20-inch arrow.
EVO-X CenterPunch 16 arrows weigh 400-grains and feature 17.5% FOC. Each arrow is inspected for straightness to within .001-inch and each package is weight matched to within 1-grain per arrow.
The NEW, longer dovetail (+1.5”) and NEW Scope Struts provide a rock-solid foundation for scope mounting – leading to enhanced durability and long-range accuracy. The dual aluminum Scope Struts increase strength and rigidity by 80%. In addition, the dovetail allows for more scope adjustments, heavier scope options, and provides the strength of a full-length rail without the added weight.
Capable of precision down-range accuracy out to 100-yards, the included EVO-X® Marksman™ Elite Scope decorated in matching Veil Alpine™ camo is a variable speed scope compatible with crossbows shooting up to 500 FPS. The scope’s external Target Turrets provide easy windage and elevation adjustment and drive unmatched long-range accuracy.
Safe Cocking & De-Cocking
The patented ACUslide™ Cocking and De-Cocking System features the Auto-Brake Gear System that separates TenPoint from all other de-cocking crossbows on the market. The patented Auto-Brake eliminates the potential of losing control during de-cocking which can lead to injury or costly bow damage. While cocking and de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required – and the handle will stop in place. In addition, while most crossbow crank cocking devices require 15+ lbs. of force to operate, the ACUslide requires only 5 lbs. of force, making it easy for people of all ages and abilities to cock the crossbow.
The Flatline 460 features the S1™ trigger. This 2-stage, zero-creep design features an advanced roller-sear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.
The Flatline 460 is equipped with our Sentry Bowhanger that allows you to easily hang your bow in the stand or protect your broadhead from dirt and grit in the ground blind.
A dovetail bubble level is also included to help eliminate “tilting/canting” of the crossbow – a critical factor in left/right accuracy.
