Tenpoint pro­duces some of the best cross­bows on the mar­ket, and the Stealth NXT is its most im­pres­sive yet. It fin­ished at or near the top in our three dou­bleweighte­d cat­e­gories: han­dling and bal­ance, speed and power, and ac­cu­racy. The Stealth is just 6 inches wide when cocked and weighs 7.3 pounds with­out ac­ces­sories. It shoul­ders and han­dles nicely. More­over, with the sup­plied 449-grain fin­ished bolts, we got 392 fps out of it and av­er­aged 1.06-inch groups at 30 yards. “This cross­bow is an in­vest­ment, but a good one,” says se­nior ed­i­tor Natalie Krebs. “It’s easy to cock, shoots tight groups at hunt­ing ranges, and han­dles well.” Our only com­plaint: Its trig­ger, while light enough at 3 pounds 15 ounces, was a bit sloppy. Var­i­ous ac­ces­sory pack­ages are avail­able. Our test bow in­cluded the Acu­d­raw Sys­tem, bolts, a quiver, an EVO-X scope, and Tenpoint’s new Stag hard case, which is about the most in­no­va­tive case on the mar­ket. ten­pointcross­bows.com
