When the President of a company speaks with excitement about a product, it must be special, and TenPoint President Rick Bednar did not mince words about an innovation in crossbow arrows- The EVO-X CenterPunch:
“The crossbow marketplace has been demanding a premium arrow for quite some time.” he said. “We’ve gone through various third-party testing – pitting the EVO-X CenterPunch arrow versus competitors’ arrows – and there’s nothing like it on the market today. It is the most accurate hunting crossbow arrow ever designed.”
Bednar pointed out the benefits of TenPoint’s innovation- a 25% improvement in accuracy from most major brands of crossbows. This is indeed a bold prediction and Bednar gave the example of reducing a 4-inch group to 3-inches at 50 yards, a considerable improvement. He explains the new arrow in detail in the YouTube video at the bottom of this text, but first, here are the highlights in bullet form:
- Constructed from modulus carbon fiber at 33 MSI (million-pounds-per-square-inch) wrapped in an exclusive LAZER-TECH carbon weave and fletched with a 3.5” Bohning X Vane™, the 445-grain CenterPunch arrow is equipped with an 84-grain lead-free brass insert – giving it a 17% F.O.C. for improved flight, stability, and accuracy.
- Its exclusive LAZER-TECH carbon wrap reduces spine variation by 80%, as the unidirectional fibers underneath are never touched. In addition, this technology also increases hoop strength by 40% – resulting in less breakage and increased accuracy due to reduced ovalizing at launch.
- Each arrow is inspected for straightness to within .001” and each package is weight-grain matched within 1-grain per arrow.
- The arrow is equipped with the patented Omni-Nock® Universal System for easy nock changing and lighting capability. The arrows are packaged with Omni-Nocks and moon nocks, making it compatible with most crossbows on the market.
- The Omni-Nock features six micro-grooves that form three bowstring channels which eliminate the indexing problem associated with moon and capture nocks. Because the channel “holds” the bowstring in place, the Omni-Nock also prevents flat-nock “shoot-over” or “shoot under”, a growing problem with today’s narrow crossbows with acute string angles.
- The CenterPunch arrow is available in 6-packs without lighted nocks or 3-packs with lighted nocks.
- CenterPunch MSRP: 6-pack $89.99, 3-pack Omni-Brite™ Universal Lighted Nock System $99.99
