If you want extreme crossbow performance and value, you will be hard-pressed to beat the Wicked Ridge Invader M1 crossbow for 2024. The Invader has been a best-seller for Wicked Ridge since 2010, and new technologies make the new model narrower, shorter, lighter and easier to cock or de-cock. The reverse-draw bow weighs 5.8 pounds and is 9.5 inches wide when cocked, and shoots 390 feet per second. The new M1 is 32 inches long and features the ACUdraw built-in crank cocking device, reducing cocking weight to 5 pounds.

The aluminum riser and limb pockets are stable and reduce vibration. The tactical stock further reduces weight. The Invader M1 comes with a new Pro-View 400 4x32 lighted scope with a reticle with aiming points to 70 yards and can be calibrated for shooting 380 to 420 fps. The crossbow is sold as a package ready to hunt with a scope, three carbon arrows and a quiver.
