Tenpoint has constructed an excellent carbon crossbow bolt with some tricks up its sleeve.
The major thing to notice with this bolt is the patented Omni-Nock technology.
The Omni-Nock feature--it allows the hunter to quickly and easily attach any type of notch. In practice this proved to be a well constructed feature.
If you’re unsure what type of nock you would like to use, this may be a great option.
Since the rest of the arrow is relatively standard and you can expect consistent usage form arrow-to-arrow, you can safely try several types of nocks without needing different arrows.
Flat nocks, moon nocks, and capture nocks can all be easily attached and unattached from this arrow.
The new Bright-Nock 2.0 technology is united with the Omni-Nock to ensure you're able to apply your nock and find your arrow with ease regardless of the time of day.
This bolt has a guaranteed straightness of +-.003 inches.
What’s really great?
They’re hand sorted for weight meaning you can expect them to be consistent.
When we were testing out the arrows, these qualities proved to have a great effect on grouping and precision.
Additionally, the 68-grain brass insert is just heavy enough to give the arrow some really nice penetrating power without making the bolt too heavy.
The bolts ship with 3.5-inch Bohning X Vanes, which do a good job of keeping the arrows on the targeted trajectory.
However, the larger size means they may not shoot well from some crossbows.
The biggest catch?
They may also fall apart over time and need replacement. This is because larger vanes have a tendency to get caught on anything they hit. This can cause ripping even when properly used.
There is another problem with the structural integrity of these bolt as well. The Omni-Nock feature requires the arrow be built from two pieces.
The issue is there have been some reports of these arrows separating where the two parts connect.
One reviewer noted the glue didn’t appear to be of high enough quality. This would be a serious issue and likely cause the reported breaking.
