New Device Makes Cocking Crossbows a Breeze

Recognized for its patented crossbow cocking devices, TenPoint Crossbow Technologies introduced the patented ACUdraw 50 SLED cocking device at the 2018 ATA Trade Show in Indianapolis, IN. Integrated into the stock and featuring a newly designed sled with detachable, magnetic handles, it reduces a crossbow’s draw weight by 50% and is compatible with post-2013 TenPoint crossbows except the Nitro X, as well as all Horton, and Wicked Ridge crossbows, including ultra-narrow and reverse-draw models.

“This new sled design improves cocking consistency, leading to greater down-range accuracy,” said TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar. “Designed from customer feedback regarding our traditional ACUdraw 50™, the ACUdraw 50 SLED can be used to quickly and quietly cock any crossbow, including those with extreme acute string angles.”

The ACUdraw 50 SLED is equipped with detachable handles, with finger grooves, that are removed from the sled to perform the cocking process. When not in use, the handles are held securely in place at the top of the sled by Neodymium magnets. The device’s heavy-duty draw cord is made of heat and abrasion resistant SPECTRA® 1000 fiber, which is 15 times stronger than steel. Its components are housed in sleek covers that are contoured to fit the stock and are less bulky than previous models.

The ACUdraw 50 SLED comes pre-installed on certain TenPoint and Horton crossbow models and is also sold as an accessory.
