Carbon Express Introduces X-Force Blade Pro Crossbow

posted on August 14, 2018

Carbon Express has released its new X-Force Blade Pro crossbow, designed to offer increased speed and accuracy in a versatile, affordable package.

With a 175-pound draw weight and a 12½-inch powerstroke that launches a 442-grain arrow at 350 fps with 114 ft.-lbs. of kinetic energy, the X-Force Blade Pro is loaded with many of the high-quality elements Carbon Express crossbows have become known for, including a lightweight, ambidextrous and compact design with extreme adjustability.

the X-Force Blade Pro’s ambidextrous safety mechanism with its patented Anti-Dry Fire feature results in a quiet shooting experience, while the adjustable, multi-position buttstock customizes the crossbow’s length of pull to fit any hunter’s needs. The step-through foot stirrup offers simple operation and enhanced safety.

The Carbon Express Quiet Crank Cocking Winch reduces cocking effort by 90 percent, and pulls more consistently than conventional methods. Accuracy is improved by ensuring equal pressure to each crossbow limb. During cranking, the anti-torque mounting shaft keeps the unit stable. Right- and left-handed hunters will appreciate the portability and single pound weight of the winch.

With an MSRP of $349.99, the X-Force Blade Pro comes in a ready-to-hunt package that includes a rope cocker, quick-detach three arrow quiver, three PileDriver 20-inch crossbolts, rail lubricant, three practice points and a 4x32mm optic.

Additional Specifications:
Weight: 6.9 lbs.
Length: 34 ½″ to 36 ½″
Width: 13 ½″ (cocked) / 17 ½″ (uncocked)
LOP: 14 ¼″ to 16 ¼″
