January 2020 – Ohio – At TenPoint Crossbow Technologies, cutting-edge crossbow design, innovation, and an openness to customer feedback have allowed the company’s brands to become synonymous with quality, durability, and safety. For 2020, TenPoint is excited to announce the release of a new cocking device: the ACUslide Cocking and De-Cocking System. No more straps, pressing buttons, or losing control. Silently cock your crossbow with a mere 5-pounds of force. In the event you don’t take a shot during your hunt, safely de-cock the crossbow by simply backwinding the handle, and, unlike other de-cocking systems on the market, stop at any point without fear of losing control.
The NEW ACUslide features TenPoint’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for SILENT cocking and SAFE and CONTROLLED de-cocking. The Auto-Brake Gear System ELIMINATES the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process. While 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 SAFELY hold in place.
Rick Bednar, CEO, states, “We were asked by our customers to deliver new crossbow designs in the TenPoint line that redefine performance, maneuverability, and accuracy. Above all else, though, our customers asked us for the ability to safely de-cock their crossbow without firing an arrow. We have always committed ourselves to building the safest crossbows on the market, and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the FIRST and ONLY SAFE OPTION to de-cock a crossbow with a crank. The ACUslide cocking system is the best cocking and de-cocking system available today. It is functionally superior to all other de-cocking options in every aspect – it is SILENT, SAFE, and EASY-TO-OPERATE.”
TenPoint considers shooter safety to be the highest priority in the design process, and our commitment to producing the safest, most user-friendly hunting crossbows and accessories in the world is highlighted by the many safety features and benefits of the ACUslide.
Coupled with the ACUslide is TenPoint’s NEW XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle that can also be used with TenPoint’s popular ACUdraw and ACUdraw PRO crank cocking mechanisms.
The ACUslide Cocking and De-Cocking System is offered on the following NEW 2020 TenPoint models that will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2020:
