Looking for one of the best crossbows for hunting this 2020? Well, look no further, my friend. In this breakdown, we'll be talking about the top 3 best crossbows from one of the best brands out there, the Wicked Ridge!
If you're new to the hunting and crossbow scene, you might be a bit intimidated by them initially. Don't be. Unlike hunting bows of, crossbows are pretty easy to use and don't have a steep learning curve.
Now, here we're going to go over the 3 best Wicked Ridge crossbows and why you should pick one of them up. We've got another article that talks about the Barnett Crossbow (another stellar brand) so be sure to compare between the two and decide for yourself which one is best.
Definitely one of the lightest crossbows on the market today, the M-370 is only 5.8 pounds and is insanely narrow at only 9.5 inches wide. This thing fires shots up to 370 feet per second and have a built-in ACUdraw cocking device for easy and accurate cocking. If that doesn't work, a Rope-Sled cocking device is available as well.
It's set up in a ready to hunt package and is pre-sighted to 20 yards. The package includes a Tenpoint 3x Multi-Line Scope optic, as well as a 3-Arrow Quiver with Instant Detach technology. The arrows for this crossbow bolt are Three Alpha-Nock Arrows.
2. INVADER 400
The next generation in the Invader model series is the Invader 400. This thing registers at a 400 FPS, 40 feet faster than the previous version. It's made right here in the US and has an ultra-lite stock with a built-in cocking device that lets you cock away with complete ease and accuracy.
The Invader 400 is a bit bigger than the M-370 at 15 inches wide and 35.5 inches long, but all that goes into a crazy powerful shot. Without a doubt, this guy is made to be the ultimate in handling and maneuverability.
The Invader 400 includes a Tenpoint Lighted 3x Pro-view scope that is mounted on an aluminum dovetail mount.
3. RAMPAGE 360
The best for those just getting started in the hunting world and need a good entry-level crossbow, the Rampage 360 has everything you need. This guy shoots up to 360 feet per second and comes in at 15 inches wide. While the other two are the go-to for the more experienced hunters out there, if you're starting out, this is pretty much top of the line.
Its optics come with a Tenpoint Multi-Line Scope that is mounted on an aluminum dovetail mount that is fixed. It uses either the ACUdraw or its bigger brother, the ACUdraw 50.
All of these crossbows are made here in the states and are of the best quality a crossbow can be. The arrows are all instant detach, making it easy to grab without messing around.
I promise you this. You use one of these and you're never going to want to use another crossbow again.
