As the crossbow craze continues and more states begin to legalize the use of these once medieval weapons, stalwart manufactures continue to unveil new marvels. For 2013, one of those marvels is TenPoint’s all-new Stealth SS. This racy rig pairs the manufacturer’s legendary streamlined XLT bow assembly with its new FSB (Functionally Superior Bullpup), bullpup-style stock and tactical barrel assembly. The result is a shorter, lighter and more powerful version of the much-loved Stealth XLT.
Three features crossbow goers demand are balance, a lightweight feel and a narrow axle-to-axle assembly. The Stealth SS delivers all three in spades. The FSB stock utilizes strategically placed cutouts to reduce weight (6.8 pounds) and improve the overall balance of the crossbow, thus boosting shot-to-shot accuracy. In addition, it’s fitted with bulletproof 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs and measures only 13.5-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked. This streamlined package makes this horizontal-wonder maneuverable when in a tight treestand, and eliminates a worry that jumps to the forefront of many crossbow hunters’ minds: hitting a tree with the limbs at the shot and getting knocked out of the tree.
Aside from being cloaked in stylish Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity, other notable features of the Stealth SS include its 334 fps speed rating, 4-inch bullpup version of the patented PowerTouch trigger, 185-pound draw weight and dual-purpose rubber safety wings that reduce noise and vibration and keep the shooter’s fore-grip safely below the flight deck.
