I want to get your opinion on the Wicked Ridge Invader. Cabelas has it on sale right now for $499.

It comes with:

TenPoint 3x Milti-Lines scope
Integrated ACU-52 self retacting rope cocking system
Wicked Ridge quiver
Three Wicked Ridge aluminum bolts
Embroidered sling

Most of the reveiws I have read are pretty good.

My wife got one about a month back - she's consistently nailing center dot at 20/30/40yds... right out of the box.

Thanks, I ordered it a few minutes ago. It should be here in roughly a week.

It has been a long time (20+ years) since I have touched any type of bow. Needless to say broadheads have improved dramatically. I have been looking at the Rage, Swhacker, and Wasp broadheads online. From what I have read the mechanical seem to fly similar to the field points. Does this sound right? What would you guys recommend?

I love the Nap Spitfire maxx broadheads. 1 3/4 inch cut..No rubber bands or O rings..Just a good ol fashioned spitfire. They leave tennis ball sized exit holes.

Going into year three with my Wicked Ridge Invader. I use Easton Full Metal Jacket bolts with Montec G5 broadheads. It'll take anything in the woods.

BTW, go ahead and order some extra bolts - nothing worse than having a bad practice session and destroying 2 of your 3 bolts when you plan to be in the woods the next day. I ordered some from Buy.com I think, OEM bolts like $36 for 6 of them with field points.

If you get an expandable broadhead for it be 100% positive that they are crossbow rated. Your warranty will be void if you shoot a non crossbow rated expandable. I personally would shoot the Grim Reaper X-Bow Edition.

Never heard of that,but it makes sense.With that said,Tenpoint does reccomend NAP Spitfires.

I received it in the mail a couple of days ago and plan to take it out to a friends house tomorrow to shot it for the first time. I also picked up a Morrells Yellow Jacket target. I can't wait to shoot it!!!

I picked up the Spitfire Maxx broadheads. They have a $10 rebate on them right now so that kinda pursuaded me to start eith them.

Much to my disappointment my friend backed out today so I didn't get to shoot. I really dislike living in northern VA due to its limited hunting/shooting opportunities. OK, I don't much care for the traffic or taxes either.

I need to find a job in Huntsville or Nashville.

Hopefully I can shoot it this week.

I made it to my friends house to shoot for the first time and I am very impressed. It was pretty windy today, but it groups very well. Hopefully the next time I get out it won't be as windy so I can dial it in a little better.

From what all I have read I expected the vibration and sound to be worse than what it is. I'll probably still get the noise/ vibration damping kit, but I am very happy.

Thanks for all your inputs.

Went out this afternoon and here is my results.



I am pretty happy with the results. But I need some recommendation on a jig, glue and whatever else is needed to replace fletching. Three of my new arrows the fletching are very warped due to passing through the bag.

I appreciate your help.
