Wicked Ridge Invader Pros and Cons
The Wicked Ridge Invader is very easy to put together and can be ready for use in less than half an hour. If you aren’t that strong it is the right choice as it is very easy to draw.
Reviews of these bows praise the accuracy and how easy it is to use. Users have stated that this item is good value for money, although it can retail rather high, you get the quality you would expect for the price.
Buyers who haven’t used a bow before have stated how easy it is to use and how accurately they fired even when they have never tried before.
However, this crossbow is very noisy compared to others on the market so you may need to buy a dampening system for it. These are easily available but not all users saw the need for this as it depends what you are using it for.
Wicked Ridge Invader Reviews
Reviewers said that the Wicked Ridge Invader is better than more expensive products made by TenPoint, and others praised how consistent it was when using it repeatedly.
Many stated how you need not bother to try out any other bows as this will fulfill all of your requirements and is very competitively priced.
The bow is so powerful that it can be difficult to remove the bolts from the targets after you have finished shooting. They praise the string assist and also how easy it is to adjust to make sure that it is an accurate shoot.
There are far more favorable reviews than negatives, on Amazon it gets 7 five star reviews and 2 four star reviews and nothing below, the lowest rating being 3 out of 5 but the review was still favorable.
