The Fastest and Narrowest Forward-Draw Crossbow Ever

TenPoint Launches Fastest Forward-Draw Crossbow with
440 Feet-Per-Second and Safe De-Cocking in the
NEW 5.8” Wide Vengent S440

 

TenPoint Crossbow Technologies launched the NEW Vengent S440 at the 2020 ATA Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.  TenPoint’s fastest and forward-draw crossbow ever, the Vengent S440 delivers lightning speeds up to 440 FPS and features the NEW revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system.  The ultra-fast crossbow is also our narrowest ever, measuring an incredible 5.8-inches wide, and weighs a half-pound less than previous TenPoint flagship models.

“We have always committed ourselves to building the best crossbows on the market and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the first safe option to de-cock a crossbow with a crank,” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO.

The NEW ACUslide features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow.  The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process. While 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.

The NEW 7 ½-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces the cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.

The ACUslide system is integrated into the company’s NEW TEC-X stock.  The high strength-to-weight ratio of the NEW stock reduces the weight of the Vengent S440, including the cocking mechanism, to 7.7-pounds – a half-pound lighter than previous TenPoint flagship models.

 

Fueled by RX6-Cams™, the forward-draw bow assembly is the difference-maker for TenPoint’s fastest and narrowest forward draw crossbow. The innovative cam system rotates 360-degrees which powers the DUAL FLEX™ limbs to produce speeds up to an incredible 440 feet-per-second. The assembly’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 downrange accuracy.

A lightweight CNC machined 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum riser featuring the company’s TRI-LOCK™ pocket system ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for further increased accuracy.

The bow assembly is mounted to a NEW 20-inch -MICRO-TRAC™ fluted aluminum barrel which reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50%.  The minimal string-to-barrel contact provides the longest string life in the industry.

The new barrel is fitted with the company’s NEW S1 3.5-pound, two-stage trigger that delivers a crisp, consistent break. 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.

Fully assembled, the crossbow weighs just 7.7-pounds, measures 35-inches (w/o stirrup) in length and shoots up to a supercharged 440 feet-per-second.

Decorated in Veil® Alpine camo or Graphite Gray, the Vengent S440 ships completely assembled and includes an extensive Ready-To-Hunt package.

The package includes:

  • ACUslide™ cocking and de-cocking system
  • RangeMaster™ Pro Variable Speed Scope
  • TenPoint Blazer™ Soft Crossbow Case
  • 6-pack of EVO-X CenterPunch™ Premium Carbon Crossbow Arrows (.001” straightness)
  • Integrated String Stop System
  • NEW 6-arrow Tech Quiver

TenPoint Raises the Bar with the Vapor RS470

470 Feet-Per-Second and Safe De-Cocking in the
NEW Ten Point Crossbows Vapor RS470

 

At the 2020 ATA Show in Indianapolis, IN, TenPoint Crossbow Technologies launched the world’s most technically advanced crossbow ever produced – the NEW Vapor RS470. Delivering supercharged speeds up to 470 FPS and featuring the NEW revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system, the industry’s premiere crossbow measures an ultra-narrow 6.5-inches wide and weighs an incredible half-pound less than previous TenPoint flagship models.

“The Vapor is the most accurate crossbow I have ever shot.” Said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO. “We have always committed ourselves to building the best crossbows on the market and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the first safe option to de-cock a crossbow with a crank”

The NEW ACUslide features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow.  The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process.

The NEW 7 ½-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces the cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.

The ACUslide system is integrated into the company’s NEW TEC-X stock.  The high strength-to-weight ratio of the stock helps reduce the weight of the Vapor RS470, including the cocking mechanism, to 8-pounds – a half-pound lighter than previous TenPoint flagship models.

Fueled by RX7-Cams™ and SLING-SHOT technology, the reverse-draw bow assembly is the difference-maker for the world’s finest crossbow. The innovative cam system rotates an industry-leading 404-degrees which powers the DUAL FLEX™ limbs, while the SLING-SHOT technology provides an extra turbo boost to produce speeds up to an unprecedented 470 feet-per-second. The assembly’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 downrange accuracy.

A lightweight CNC machined 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum riser featuring the company’s TRI-LOCK™ pocket system ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for further increased accuracy.

ScentFIRE: The New Way to Disperse Scent

One of Conquest Scents‘ newest products to up your scent control game is the all-new ScentFIRE. The ScentFIRE heats scent liquid turning it into a vapor which then dispenses periodically into the air… that scent vapor, like the aroma of cooking foods, is much stronger and more likely to reach distant deer, especially when continuously dispersed.

HOW IT WORKS:

1. FIRE IT UP

Screw scent cartridge into the ScentFIRE chamber where the scent is heated into a vapor. ScentFIRE quickly heats liquid scent turning it into a long-ranging, strong-smelling vapor. The ScentFIRE vaporizer takes pre-filled cartridges of EverCalm, VS-1, or RuttingBuck that each last approximately 50 hours on 3-minute mode.

2. FIRE IT OFF

Position ScentFIRE in a strategic position. The Scent Fire can be placed on the ground, screwed into a tree, placed on a small tripod, or mounted on a telescopic pole to increase scent dispersal. It will automatically dispense scent every 90 seconds (adjustable), or use it manually via the remote control (included). ScentFIRE uses three AA batteries (not included) and operates approx. 40 hours on 3-minute mode.

3. FIRE ‘EM UP

Long-lasting, strong-smelling scent vapors travel great distances to entice deer. There are 3 dispersal modes: 3 min, 1 min, and standby; it can also be fired off manually.

New Stealth Cam® FLX Offers Dual Wireless Cam Management Systems

Stealth Cam® introduces a new trail camera designed to simplify on-the-go programming and wireless downloading. The all-new Stealth Cam FLX uses both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, offering in-the-field and Local Network communication between the camera and mobile devices or nearby servers.

The FLX Bluetooth option lets the user access the camera from a mobile device for field application use. The available Stealth Cam Remote app can automatically activate the camera’s on-board Wi-Fi and allows photo and video download from 30-50 feet distance, as well as complete programming of the camera’s numerous customizable settings! This is a noteworthy advantage as it allows the user to access imagery or change camera settings without disturbing the camera set or contaminating the immediate area with scent.

Stealth Cam FLX Wifi Trail Camera

Capture the ideal shot with the Stealth Cam FLX WiFi Trail Camera. This 30.0 Megapixel game camera with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features a burst mode of 1 to 9 images per triggering so you’ll be able to capture every detail.

In addition to the Bluetooth compatibility, the Stealth Cam FLX also allows Wi-Fi communication to a home-based server when the camera is within 30-50 feet. This makes the FLX ideal for capturing images and videos around home or camp. New photos can be programmed to download directly to the server at specified intervals, with notification alerts whenever new photos are uploaded.

The FLX itself is a highly sophisticated camera that delivers 30MP still images, 1080P video, and up to 512GB storage with an appropriately sized SD card. Several Stealth Cam technologies are employed to achieve this exceptional performance, starting with the 42 IR emitters with adjustable PIR range control, fast trigger speed (under one second), blur reduction, low-light sensitivity for vibrant images day or night, and multi-programmable burst and recovery times to meet all monitoring conditions.

Whether you’re keeping an observation site “clean” or just keeping an eye on things around home or camp, the new FLX is sure to deliver with its dual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth management systems! To learn more about the FLX and other Stealth Cam products, please visit http://www.stealthcam.com.
