TenPoint Crossbow Technologies has introduced its NEW Turbo GT model that pairs a new stock and barrel design with the company’s time-tested technology to add improved performance and maneuverability to the newest version in a long line of successful TenPoint Turbo models.
“The Turbo model has been a staple in our lineup for quite a few years now because of its maneuverability, power and price.” TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar said. “With the new stock and barrel, we’ve made it shorter and easier to handle — all without adding any cost to the consumer.”
The Turbo GT’s stock assembly features the company’s NEW shorter Fusion S stock and 19.5-inch synthetic barrel, fitted with a 4-inch bullpup version of its 3 ½-lb. T3 auto-engaging safety trigger.
Configured with optimal comb-height and a two-position adjustable butt plate to match the shooter’s length-of-pull, the Fusion S stock, made from PolyOne™ OnForce, employs strategically placed cutouts in the fore-grip and butt stock to reduce weight and improve handling and balance. The fore-grip cutouts also allow shooters to wrap their thumb and fingers “into” the grip. This feature and the glass-reinforced nylon safety wings located on the stock above the grip both help to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the arrow flight deck.
The Turbo GT’s supercharged 175-pound XLT bow assembly measures a compact 13.5-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked. Its machined riser is fitted with 11-inch IsoTaper™ Limbs, MRX cams, DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables, and a detachable, lightweight, coated aluminum foot stirrup.
Assembled, the Turbo GT is 35 inches long, weighs 6.5 pounds, and shoots up to 360 FPS. That is 3 inches shorter, a ½ pound lighter, and 15 FPS faster than its Turbo XLT II predecessor.
The Turbo GT comes standard with TenPoint’s 3x Pro-View 2 Scope and features TenPoint’s patented DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor).
Available with or without one of TenPoint’s two patented cocking units, the ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50, the Turbo GT is decorated in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country. It sells only as a complete package that includes the scope, cocking mechanism, three Pro Elite carbon arrows, quiver and Side-Mount Quiver Bracket. MAP: $799 with Rope Cocker, $899 with ACUdraw 50, $999 with ACUdraw.
