Tested: Wicked Ridge Crossbow’s Invader HP

For a company that’s been around for less than a decade, Wicked Ridge Crossbows has stormed onto the hunting scene with an impressive array of equipment, and its most recent introduction, the Invader HP crossbow, is perhaps its most remarkable product yet.

If you read the company’s advertising, you know Wicked Ridge to be “TenPoint Tested, TenPoint Tough,” a less than invader-imgesubliminal message tying the young crossbow manufacturer to its corporate parent, TenPoint Crossbow Technologies. And, as you would expect, the modestly priced Wicked Ridge brand incorporates the same superior technology that has made TenPoint the penultimate leader in crossbow performance and safety.

The Invader, quite simply, is a must-have. In fact, it’s almost not fair to the competition what Wicked Ridge has done by incorporating TenPoint’s HL limbs and HP cams into a system that when paired with its String Dampening System produces a quiet, smooth delivery that crossbows costing hundreds of dollars more can’t achieve.

Weighing an agile 7 pounds, the Invader stretches a tape measure to just 38 inches in length and 25-1/4 inches from axle to axle. Its 12-1/4-inch power stroke pulls to a draw weight of 180 pounds, enough to send an arrow downrange at 315 feet per second. At impact is a whopping 92 foot pounds of kinetic energy — true knockdown power that will leave any deer hunter smiling.

Did we mention a modest price? Packages start at just $499 for a standard package that includes a Ride-Dot 40mm multi-dot scope, ACU-52 integrated, self-retracting rope-cocking system, and a Wicked Ridge Instant Detach 3-Arrow Quiver. The premium package, which includes a TenPoint 3x Multi-Line Scope, the ACU-52 cocking system, Wicked Ridge Instant Detach 3-Arrow Quiver, three Wicked Ridge aluminum arrows and a Wicked Ridge sling, tops out at just $549.
