TenPoint Takes Editor’s Choice AND Best Value Crossbow Honors

Crossbow leader TenPoint Crossbow Technologies recently took home both awards in Outdoor Life’s annual crossbow test.

Best Crossbows of 2023 from Outdoor Life

  • Editor’s Choice: TenPoint Flatline 460
  • Best Value: Wicked Ridge Raider 400 De-Cock

“We are flattered to be named both Editor’s Choice and Best Value,” said TenPoint CEO Phil Bednar. “Unlike other crossbow brands, TenPoint and Wicked Ridge are the SINGULAR focus of our energies. Each day, our goal is to design both the finest, and the most economical, feature packed crossbows on the market. The results of Outdoor Life’s testing prove what we already know -TenPoint makes both the finest crossbows in the world, and that no other brand can offer the features and values available in our Wicked Ridge crossbows.”

Designed for the hardcore hunter who wants a micro-footprint to maximize shooting opportunities, but isn’t willing to sacrifice speed or accuracy, the Flatline 460 measures just 26.5-inches short and shoots a blistering 460 feet-per-second. Equipped with NEW Scope Struts that provide rock solid mounting for the scope, it delivers unrivaled durability and long-range accuracy.

Starting at $749 and Built in America, the Raider 400 De-Cock is the lowest priced de-cocking crossbow on the market and shoots 400 feet-per-second.

The annual test from Outdoor Life includes crossbows with speeds from 368 FPS to 515 FPS and posted prices from $550 to $4,000. Each of them is thoroughly tested in areas such as speed, accuracy, cocking, and handling.
