Spring turkey seasons are officially poppin’ across the country. Right on time, the new Wicked Ridge Raider 400 crossbow brings all the features you need to get on birds in full stealth mode. This looks like one mean piece of hunting gear.
Wicked Ridge Raider 400 De-Cock Crossbow
The Raider 400 De-Cock comes withe the much-anticipated ACUdraw De-Cock feature, along with a D1 Trigger. The combo headline what Wicked Ridge calls the most economical, safe de-cocker on the crossbow market. The unit de-cocks speed up to 400 fps, meaning it works on the biggest of big-game crossbows. Better still, the high-tech crossbow retails for just $799.
“If you’ve owned a crossbow for more than a few years, the Raider 400 De-Cock makes it obsolete,” said TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar. “We all know the inconvenience of carrying a target to discharge your arrow or shooting it into the ground after the hunt – the Raider 400 combines the convenience of de-cocking and speeds up to 400 feet-per-second at a price-point affordable to all hunters.”
The new ACUdraw De-Cock silent cocking and safe de-cocking system features the company’s Auto-Brake Gear System. It eliminates the potential of losing control, according to Wicked Ridge. The safe system enables users to remove their hand from the handle at any point while de-cocking, while the handle stops in place.
Safety-Driven, Powerful System
Additionally, the system reduces the required effort to cock the crossbow to a mere 5 pounds. It comes equipped with a 1,000-pound strength nylon strap for wear and abrasion resistance. Meanwhile, the D-1 Trigger provides a 2-stage pull with no creep, according to Wicked Ridge. Exhibiting just 3.5 pounds of pull, it even comes with DFP, a Dry-Fire-Prohibitor, for further safety.
The bow itself comes with a 185-pound bow assembly. It features a lightweight cast aluminum riser and machined aluminum limb pockets with 11-inch WRX double-laminated limbs. Then 5S Cams and DyanFLIGHT 97 string and cables power the crossbow. Ultimately, it spits 400-fps venom at its prey.
The Raider 400 measures 31.5 inches overall, tipping the scales at 6.5 pounds. For even more info, please visit wickedridgecrossbows.com.
