Build Quality – Durability

The Warrior Ultra-Lite has a rigid construction and has a long lifespan, even if the price seems to be a little low for high-quality materials. While you will be able to carry it around very easily due to the fact that the crossbow has an outstanding weight of only 6 pounds, the materials used are still strong.

The manufacturers are using polypropylene that is glass-filled which has a great effect on the weight of the crossbow. This is how they managed to make it lightweight and sturdy at the same time. The limb pockets are made of machined aluminum which is also lightweight and increases the lifespan of the Warrior Ultra-Lite because it does not rust.

 

Design

In terms of design, the great thing about the Warrior Ultra-Lite is that the back is open, reducing in this way the weight of the whole crossbow. However, because it has a front draw design, it might take some time for you to adjust in terms of how to properly balance it. Its 11” WRX laminated limbs will take the performance of your shots to another level.

It comes with an X-core stock which is sturdy and the pistol grip is ergonomic, therefore you will have a blast using this crossbow because it is designed to increase your safety and its ease of use.

 

Speed and Performance

There are some factors here that, combined, deliver high-performance levels. For example, the fact that the maximum speed is 350 lbs and the Warrior Ultra-Lite is extremely lightweight, will allow you to make more accurate shots.

Also, you can opt for the ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50 cocking device which will allow you to perform cocking and de-coking more easily than manually but also a lot quicker, which will allow you to focus more on the target.

 

Accuracy

If you have talked to other crossbow enthusiasts, among them you have definitely encountered people who complained about the fact that their crossbow lacked consistency in terms of accuracy. This often happens because they are not using a cocking device and prefer to perform this action manually.

Unfortunately, often they will not do it perfectly so the shot will suffer in terms of precision. The fact that you can attach an ACUdraw cocking device will help you when it comes to better aiming and shooting because it dramatically reduces the draw weight, which will result in more precise shots and an increased percentage of hit targets.

 

Safety

As we have said in other reviews, TenPoint put a lot of focus on safety and they don’t disappoint when it comes to Wicked Ridge crossbows.

The Warrior Ultra-Lite is no exception and you will be able to use it safely because of the safety wings that provide a sort of barrier in order to prevent your hands from getting in the way of the strings and reduce the risk of injury.

Also, the trigger guard is enclosed and you will be able to get a good grip because the fore-grip is open and you will be able to pass your fingers through it.

 

Noise and Vibration

If you use this crossbow together with a cocking device, you will be able to enjoy silent shots, because the ACUdraw makes the operation silent. Vibration is also reduced because the manufacturers are using high-quality DynaFLIGHT 97 strings.

 

Ease Of Use and Assembly

If you examine the bow assembly thoroughly, you will be able to see how narrow it is when it is cocked. The distance between the axles is only 15 inches, which will allow you to use the Warrior Ultra-Lite very easily even in tighter hunting situations, which is a great feature that will increase your performance.

Weighing only 6 lbs, this crossbow is among the ones that every shooter wants to have in their collection because it is extremely easy to maneuver. It will take a little time to adjust to it if you have been used to heavier crossbows, but the lightness of the products will make it very easy for you to move around and you will be able to easily hold it in the same position for longer.

 

 

Review Summary

As a conclusion, the Wicked Ridge Warrior Ultra-Lite is a great crossbow that comes with great features and at a good price, being among the most affordable ones. Its weight is a big plus because, due to its construction and the materials used, it weighs only 6 lbs and it is also very easy to use because it is among the narrow-designed ones.

If you are looking to improve your shooting performance by improving your comfort and balance during the process, this crossbow will help you do that. You will also get high safety levels, better accuracy, and higher movement versatility for a fair price.
