Build Quality – Durability

The warranties that TenPoint provides for its products are far from short when it comes to time length and this happens due to the fact that it produces great quality crossbows. The Lightweight Fusion S Stock is made of sturdy and durable materials, and so are the other components of the product.

The bolts used to put the crossbow together are very sturdy and provide very strong joints and you will be able to use this product for a long time if you take care of it.

 

Design

If you are looking for a narrow crossbow that still comes with high speeds and precision, you will be very happy shooting with this weapon. In terms of design, the Turbo M1 is the narrowest model that TenPoint has designed in the Turbo collection and it measures only 9 inches in width when cocked.

This is great in terms of balance and ease of use. The fact that you can adjust the crossbow to be used by left-handed or right-handed shooters also earns points for the Turbo M1.

The crossbow weighs only 6.4 lbs so your balance while shooting will be improved. The weight is reduced because of the lightweight stock but also thanks to the cutouts that have been strategically made in order to improve the shooter’s balance.

Overall, in terms of design, the Turbo M1 can easily earn a spot among the crossbows that improve shooting performance.

 

Speed and Performance

When we talk about speed and performance we talk about the draw weight and design. Luckily, TenPoint has designed the ACUdraw PRO cocking system that reduces the draw weight to 9 lbs in order to make it easier to shoot the arrows.

This, combined with the VX-5 reversed cams, that are designed to make an elongated power-stroke and maximize rotation, allow the arrows to reach a maximum speed of 380 fps which makes this crossbow stand out among its competitors. Due to its design, the balance is improved and you will be able to not miss any targets while using it.

 

Accuracy

As we have said before, the speed that the Turbo M1 shoots at is outstanding and it is a factor that hugely influences accuracy. When you shoot an arrow in different types of weather conditions, wind can easily set the arrow off track. This is why, if the speed is higher, the chances of weather making you miss the target are very low.

The VX-5 reversed cams will definitely improve the speed while also improving accuracy, and this is why this crossbow model is among the smoothest and most accurate products on the market and among the first choices of hunters who are looking for crossbows that allow them to take precise shots.

 

Safety

TenPoint is renowned for how much attention it pays to safety. First of all, your hands will be protected by the safety wings which are attached to the stack and are made of glass-reinforced nylon in order to not allow you to place your hands onto the arrow flight deck.

The design of the crossbow is handy when it comes to safety because the manufacturers have incorporated grip cutouts in order for you to be able to rest your fingers there while shooting.

The T5 trigger is a great feature that some TenPoint products have, and the Turbo M1 is no exception. One of the safest on the market, this trigger has an auto-engaging safety and also comes with a dry fire inhibitor, or DFI, which will protect you even more. So there is nothing that is not covered in terms of safety when it comes to this crossbow.

 

Noise and Vibration

Due to the ACUdraw Pro which reduces the noise to a minimum when cocking and the design and trigger of this crossbow, we can fairly say that it has great performance in terms of noise and accuracy.

 

Ease Of Use and Assembly

When it comes to assembly, the TenPoint Turbo M1 is really easy to put together. You get a quiver assembly, a stock assembly which has the scope already attached, and a bow assembly. The great thing about it is that you get a very detailed instruction manual that teaches you how to put it together and it will literally take you 10 to 15 minutes to do it.

The crossbow is easy to use and the great thing about it is that it comes with an ambidextrous T5 trigger and you can also install the quiver for both left-handed or right-handed users. Due to the ACUdraw Pro, the TenPoint Turbo M1 is easy to handle by anyone because they will not need a high amount of strength to do it.
