Best Crossbow I’ve Ever Shot By Far

AWESOME! Couldn’t wait to get this bad boy out of the box! Super light and LIGHTNING FAST! Crazy accurate & easy to use. Superior cocking/decocking mechanism, especially compared to a competitor’s 500 FPS bow that started to deteriorate after 15 shots with string fraying and broken nocks. No issues at all with the Nitro! Great engineering- super well-balanced, love the placement of the hand grips so you can ensure a steady shot The crank is easy to use and only requires 5lbs to cock. The lighted redicles are an added bonus when shooting in low light conditions. The scope’s yardage markers are very clearly defined and easy to use. Bow was super accurate out to 70 yards- wanted to go further but daylight was closing in. Added bonus is that it comes with 3 broad heads, a sling, and extra arrows. Super excited to get the Nitro out in the field - couldn’t be happier with it so far. Well worth the money for an American made product. Thank you for making an awesome crossbow.

Nitro Nightmare

Nightmare, Extremely poor (or no) quality control during the manufacturing process. My certified Ten Point dealer spent six weeks trying to understand why my Nitro was so inconsistent with grouping arrows at close range i.e. 40 yrds. Thus far, my Second Ten Point Certified Dealer found that the cable wheels/pullies were never tightened before shipping. The shop owner and I are still working on this poorly manufactured Ten Pount Nitro. The Nito has been a nightmare! This is my second Ten Point and the lack of quality control during manufacturing is embarrassing.

    First Few Months with 2022 Nitro 505

    I purchased my Nitro 505 a few months ago and havent been able to see how it performs throughout a full deer season. That being said, there is only one area of improvement I would like to see- the 2 stage trigger. I assumed it would be pretty- much the same as a 2 stage trigger used in a rifle. That is not the case. There is simply "loose slack" taken up and then the actual trigger pull. The bow appears to be exceptionally well- built, with one of the best traditional crossbow scopes on the market. After a full season of use, I will try to update this review.

    Screaming fast, solid bow..TP505!

    The 505 is as solid of a crossbow as I have owned. It is blazing fast, shoulders great, and shoots amazing. The accu-slide is hands down the best cocking system in the market.

    Get yourself a REALLY good target!

    A sturdy extremely fast crossbow. Make sure you have a top notch target or the bolts will blow through it. Lesson learned the hard way

    Balance -Stability -Speed

    The Nitro is a very balanced bow! It provides the stability that is needed to steady a quick shot, and the longevity to secure that ethical positioning that can sometimes take awhile. The Nitro 505 isn’t the lightest bow made but the stability and balance definitely makes up the difference! Did I also mention that the speed of this bow is wickedly smooth and fast! Sold me and my wife (who is a hard sell) period! You have to be able to justify the price of this bow in this hunting family or it doesn’t get bought! So far so good with the Nitro 505!

    Bow shoots extremely fast n flat. Had a couple issues being repaired now at tenpoint. Company always been stellar concerning service. Love the bow!

    Lightning fast

    The bow is lightning quick. Took out a buck in 2022 during archery 50 yards and he fell like a stone. Can't say enough about the new cocking and decocking. It is much safer and better designed than the previous generation. Still love my 1st tenpoint crossbow and it knocked down 10 bucks over the years. But the new bow it h struck and this one is a keeper.

    Amazing crossbow

    This bow is bad to the bone. Super accurate, fast, quiet and easy to shoot. The Accudraw works great. Have not gotten a deer with it yet. So I can't speak to that. It is a little pricey. That is the only drawback.

    The all in one crossbow. TenPoint Nitro 505.

    The TenPoint Nitro 505 is a well designed, balanced crossbow. I bought this crossbow for several reasons. The first is the accuracy of it. The second is the speed, and of course the Acu Slide. This is an all around great product.

    This one of the best cross bows I have

    It’s easy to sight in and at 109 yards I’m getting quarter sized groups I like the way that you can decock the bow the bow is not that heavy the reverse Dre makes getting in my stand a lot easier and able to maneuver tight spaces with out getting hung up on tree branches

    Ten point crossbows are very well built

    I own the venom crossbow and been very successful with it. Replacing with the nitro 505 would be really great!

    Blazing Speed

    Super fast , Great piece of equipment . Only place I can see improvement would be on the scope glass. It could be clearer. It will increase my range.

  • 5.0 5.0

    Great job ten point you hit the spot on this one best crossbow I have ever shot

    Awesome engineering

    Fastest bow I have ever shot. Very easy to cock and un cock. They thought of everything right down to using your sling to make a back pack out of your case. Very impressive.
