“We were astounded to learn the Invader G3 took Outdoor Life’s Great Buy Award”, comments TenPoint® and Wicked Ridge CEO, Rick Bednar. “We made significant changes to the new Invader G3 and price aside, this crossbow has many top-end features. We appreciate that Outdoor Life acknowledges the hard work and quality we put into this bow at an affordable price.”
Invader G3’s assembly consists of a newly designed, machined aluminum riser with strategically placed cutouts that reduce weight and increase strength. It is fitted with new, tactical-black limbs powered by a new Energy Wheel™ equipped with DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables with tunable yokes. This custom configuration produces a fast and maneuverable 330 FPS, 165-pound draw weight assembly that is only 19-inches axle-to-axle when cocked. The new, semi-skeletal stock design, molded with PlastiComp® Duplēt®, was not only designed to lighten the bow but also to help keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the bowstring release path. It features a new pass-through fore-grip backed up with new, longer, glass reinforced nylon safety wings fitted on the stock above the grip. In addition to these new safety features, the stock is also fitted with TenPoint’s DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and highly regarded 3.5-pound T2™ trigger. The two assemblies combined, without accessories, weigh only 6.6 pounds.
The Invader G3 is double-dip fluid imaged in Mossy Oak’s® popular Treestand® camo pattern and is equipped with an ACU-52™ cocking mechanism. Its package includes a TenPoint 3x Multi-Line™ Scope, 3 400-grain, 20-inch Wicked Ridge carbon arrows, and a quiver.
