Build Quality – Durability
When we talk about durability we talk about the quality of the materials that are used to make this crossbow and we can say that it’s positioned quite high when it comes to long-lasting crossbows.
The riser is made of aluminum and the stock is made of glass-filled polypropylene which are both very durable and strong materials that are also lightweight, adding both ease of use and a long lifespan.
This is a front draw crossbow that is really distinctive among the other products in the line because it incorporates safety and performance providing great features in terms of its design. In order to make the product lighter and still safe, the manufacturers have come with some ingenious solutions, such as the cutouts in the foregrip.
Speed and Performance
In terms of performance, this crossbow does not aim to be the best and there are products on the market that come with better parameters. However, this is a great choice for people who are looking for a relatively performant crossbow that comes at an affordable price or for people who are just getting started with this sport.
In terms of speed, for its features, 335 fps is great, but again, it is not the highest speed that a crossbow can get. For what it is aimed to do and if we compare it with products in the same price range, we can say this speed is above average.
The great thing about the Renegade is that it is available with the ACUdraw or ACUdraw50 mechanism which improves the accuracy of the shot by decreasing the draw weight to about 5 pounds which will allow you to make more precise shots.
This, combined with the maximum speed of 335 fps make this crossbow a good option for people who aim for perfection in terms of accuracy.
If there is one thing that TenPoint pays attention to when it comes to its products, it’s that they have high levels of safety and the TenPoint Renegade makes no exception.
The crossbow comes with safety wings made of nylon which are glass-reinforced and are placed just above the grip in order not to allow the user to place their hand over the flight deck. Also, the foregrip has cutouts in it in order to reduce the weight, but they have a safety purpose also. It allows the shooter to have a better grip while placing their fingers inside.
Noise and Vibration
This crossbow has relatively good qualities when it comes to noise and vibration and will not give you any problems in terms of your prey being able to prevent it from getting scared because of the noise.
As we have said before, the TenPoint Renegade is one of the most efficient crossbows in its price range and the manufacturer took care of this aspect as well in order to take the product to another level.
Ease Of Use and Assembly
The Renegade is 18.5 inches when it is cocked and is relatively narrow compared to other products. It is ergonomic and lightweight due to the materials used for its construction. The stock is lightweight and will allow you to easily maneuver it while keeping a good balance in order to accurately aim at your target.
Due to the design of the buttstock and of the foregrip, this crossbow is very easy to handle and is a great choice for both men and women regardless of their size.
People who are looking for an improvement to the sturdiness and quality of their crossbow but don’t want to spend a lot of money will be very happy to find out the TenPoint Renegade comes with an outstanding level of safety and it’s also above average when it comes to performance in this price range.
