TenPoint Stealth NXT Crossbow Package: Detailed Specifications​

Build Quality

It is constructed and assembled with very tight tolerance. The CNC machined type II cams, riser, and limb pockets are created in such a manner that makes crossbow portable and easy to shoot. Its 3.5-pound trigger is comfortable and delivers a crisp, smooth trigger-pull for accuracy.

It uses the latest and exciting setup as the cable system comes with four cables instead of dual cables—furthermore, its turnbuckle design on the riser to offer the entire construction with better balance and performance.


The NXT is a brand new model with the latest design and looks by TenPoint. It measures 6 inches axle when cocked, which means you’ll be able to squeeze through the most confined places while stalking your prey. The best thing about it is that you won’t remain stuck in your tree stand and wait for the game to come to you when you’ve such a great companion by your side.

TenPoint crossbows introduce an XR-6 cam to this crossbow. The difference from previous models is that its string is moved to the front of the cam instead of the back cam. And the power stroke is enhanced without making the crossbow longer.


This crossbow shoots an insane 410 feet per second with a kinetic energy of 144 feet pound. Its 220 pounds draw weight is a discouraging aspect. But it is resolved by ACUdraw technology.

This crossbow offers fast speed with Dual Flex split limbs that are paired with XR6 maximum rotation cam. Moreover, its Tri-Lock pocket system provides pinpoint accuracy.

Riser and Cam System

The riser is lightweight and as same as the high-end bows. It is constructed using carbon material that makes it quiet and warm. In a blind or tree stand, they stay warm. This crossbow has the best pockets as well as the best machined front ends.

Its rail system is well-built, which is resistant to wear. There are two-string stops in the front that reduces hand shock and vibration. Many Hunters and archers love the narrow design of this crossbow.

It comes with rubber safety wings that serve a dual purpose. It keeps the forehand fingers and hand safely beneath the flight deck and also reduces vibration and noise. The trigger provides a smooth pull that raises precision with the optimal creep for safety. Also, its dry fire inhibitor prevents crossbow from dry firing.


The Stealth NXT crossbow’s assembly is mounted to a Tac Lite aluminum barrel that reduces vibration, weight, and noise. It features a 21.5 inches black anodization barrel. The weaver style dovetail is nylon filament arrow retention fitted that enhances arrow alignment and grip that lessens vibration and noise further.
