Horizontal Thinking: Best Crossbows for 2018

Horizontal Thinking: Best Crossbows for 2018

Mission Crossbows

Here is a brief overview of some of the hot new crossbows for 2018.

Mission


Mission went all out this year, launching Mission Crossbows as a new brand identity, separate from Mission Archery, and introducing an entirely new crossbow platform. The goal of CEO and chief engineer, Matt McPherson and his engineering team was to improve crossbows in every category. The result was the SUB-1, so named for its ability to consistently deliver groups less than 1 inch at 100 yards. Accuracy is enhanced through a high let-off, fully synced Sync X Cam system that eliminates horizontal nock travel, a patented CNC-machined rail that eliminates vertical nock travel and an RSD (Removable Silent Draw) system designed to apply equal tension to each side of the bowstring during draw. The RSD also drastically reduces effort required to cock the bow's 200 pounds of draw weight. Fit and feel are improved with a precision "rifle-inspired" stock that allows for six different length-of-pull adjustments and 1-1/4 inches of adjustment in the comb, as well as a contoured pistol grip. the SUB-1 also features an innovative trigger system that has the ability to safely de-cock without firing a bolt or disengaging the trigger.


MSRP: $1,499
