The first thing that you’ll notice about this exceptional crossbow is its lightweight construction and the exceptional balance that it offers. Part of it is due to the usage of the time-tested Fusion S stock that delivers high strength without adding extra weight to the bow.
The Titan M1 delivers devastating speeds that can reach 370 feet per second with a kinetic energy of up to 113 FP. This means that each shot will be lethal even to larger prey, and thanks to its superior balance, you’ll get to enjoy high accuracy shot after shot.
Furthermore, this is a cost-effective crossbow, which means that it is priced competitively so that both beginner and more advanced archers can afford it. The lower price point doesn’t mean that you’ll get a sub-par experience since the TenPoint Titan M1 comes with all the features and accessories you’d expect to find in a high-quality crossbow.

Build Quality – Durability
This model comes with TenPoint’s award-winning Fusion S stock that is made from fiberglass polypropylene composite. This material can deliver an impressive amount of strength, and it does that without adding too much extra weight to the bow so that you can still enjoy a portable and easy-to-carry product.
TenPoint is a company that has, for a long time, led the pack when it comes to product quality, and this is true for the Titan M1 as well. The build quality is excellent, especially once you take into account that this is a mid-range crossbow that’s priced accordingly.
It has a compact design that can still manage to provide a longer power stroke of 14”, which in turn provides the 180-pound draw limbs extra boost in velocity without adding too much axle-to-axle length. The narrow 9-inch width will make it easier for you to maneuver the crossbow in tight hunting conditions.
Moreover, the Titan M1 is covered with a high-quality camouflage design that looks stylish and serves the purpose of allowing you to blend in more easily with your surroundings. Its design facilitates hunting from a tree stand, blind, or on the ground.
Speed and Performance
This option shoots arrows at speeds that hover around 370 fps, and with such impressive numbers, the bow performs very well in most environments and weather conditions. Wind, snow, rain, or sleet won’t be an issue since, with such speeds, the weather won’t affect the accuracy or performance of the bow.
You can use this model for most hunting applications since it delivers a great blend of speed, performance, and accuracy. Each arrow packs 113 FP of kinetic energy so that you can make each shot count.
This model performs exceptionally at ranges of 20, 30, and 40 yards, and it delivers consistent accuracy shot after shot. Once you start shooting from further distances, the accuracy tends to suffer a bit, but that’s to be expected, especially if you are hunting in less than perfect conditions.
Thus, it is best to try to keep your shots within 40 yards if you want to get the best results. At distances higher than that, gusts of wind can blow your arrows slightly off target.
This model comes equipped with the T5 trigger that includes an advanced dry-fire inhibitor and auto-engaging safety. This addition will not only guarantee the safety of the user, but it will also make shooting the bow feel smoother.
The auto-engaging trigger is perfect for deer hunting, and it has a consistent and crisp break that will keep you safe at all times. The string latch design also reduces friction for a more consistent break with each shot.
Noise and Vibration
One area in which this model doesn’t deliver the best results is the noise since firing the bow is rather loud. However, when comparing it to other models in this price range, the noise that this unit makes is not that bad.
It is also not that big of an issue since the Titan M1 makes up for its louder firing with its excellent accuracy. If you keep your shots on target, the prey won’t have time to react and escape.
Ease Of Use and Assembly
Compared to past models from TenPoint, the Titan M1 comes with a new and improved design and plenty of new features. This means that even for hunters who’ve used a product from this company before, it is still a good idea to consult the owner’s manual before assembling and shooting the crossbow.
Thankfully, the assembly process is very easy, and the cocking and trigger mechanisms are improved and made more user-friendly. Now you can cock the crossbow while seated in a blind, a tree stand, or on the ground.
TenPoint Titan M1 Review Summary
This Titan M1 delivers a sturdy, well-balanced, and lightweight construction and an impressive list of features for what is essentially an affordable crossbow. You shouldn’t let the lower price fool you since this model is a true powerhouse that delivers refined performance, speed, and accuracy.
It is highly-accurate even when used in harsh weather conditions, and each shot packs lethal speed so that you can score a clean kill with a single shot.
