TenPoint Havoc RS440
Size, Speed, and Comfort Redefined with TenPoint’s 26.5” Long, 440 Feet-Per-Second Havoc RS440
TenPoint Crossbow Technologies recently launched the industry’s fastest crossbow-per-inch – the NEW Havoc RS440. Delivering 440 FPS with same-hole accuracy from a platform measuring only 26.5” long and 7.5” narrow, the Havoc RS440 redefines compact crossbow performance and comfort, while providing safe de-cocking with the revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system.
“The Havoc is the most comfortable compact crossbow on the market. Period.,” said TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar. “When we launched a compact bow project, we wanted to create a bow that felt good to shooters of all sizes, while implementing our reverse-draw technology that allows us to deliver unmatched speed, power, and accuracy. Shoulder it and shoot it – you’ll understand why it redefines the compact crossbow in size, speed, comfort, and noise level.”
The Havoc’s reduction in length to just 26.5” overall is accomplished with the development of TenPoint’s NEW 16-inch -MICRO-TRAC barrel and NEW ultra-light, two-piece TEC-TACTICAL stock. The fluted aluminum barrel also reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50%, increasing accuracy and providing string life in excess of 1,000-shots, while the new stock features a tactical styled buttstock, as well as a hollow pocket that houses the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system. In addition, the stock’s butt plate adjusts up to 1” to provide all shooters the ideal fit, and combines with the NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope to yield perfect eye-level alignment.
The NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope, included in the bow package, features fully multi-coated 2-8X optics, capable of precision down-range accuracy out to 100-yards. A variable speed design compatible with crossbows shooting up to 500 FPS, the Marksman Elite scope features external Target Turrets for easy adjustment to windage and elevation (one-click represents ½” MOA at 100-yards) for unmatched long-range accuracy.[perfectpullquote align=”right” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]The crossbow weighs just 7.5-pounds (w/o accessories), measures only 26.5-inches (w/o stirrup) in length, and shoots a supercharged 440 feet-per-second with the included 400-grain arrow EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon crossbow arrow.[/perfectpullquote]
The Havoc features a patented reverse-draw bow assembly that draws the string through the riser, creating a 13.5-inch power stroke. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight – creating a smoother, quieter shot. The elongated power stroke also keeps the arrow nock engaged with the string before release – this is a critical component in performance, as the longer the nock remains engaged with the string, the more accurate the crossbow will shoot. In addition, this center-mounted riser provides superior balance, eliminating the “nose-heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady, increasing the shooter’s accuracy.
The RX7-Cam system rotates an incredible 360-degrees to produce speeds of 440 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow. The crossbow’s revolutionary Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel leading to same-hole down-range accuracy.
The ACUslide, the talk of the 2020 crossbow market, features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow. The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the cocking or de-cocking process. While cocking and de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required – and the handle will stop in place. The 6-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.
The Havoc RS440 features the company’s S1 trigger. This 2-stage, zero-creep design features an advanced roller-sear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.
The crossbow weighs just 7.5-pounds (w/o accessories), measures only 26.5-inches (w/o stirrup) in length, and shoots a supercharged 440 feet-per-second with the included 400-grain arrow EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon crossbow arrow.
The Havoc RS440 comes with the new EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon crossbow arrows. The ultra-accurate 16” arrows weigh 400-grains and feature 17.5% FOC. Each arrow is inspected for straightness to within .001-inch and each package is weight-matched to within 1-grain per arrow.
