Find out which crossbows scored the highest in our annual torture test.
1 of 13
Our annual bow test doesn't end with compounds. Crossbows continue to grow in popularity, and we keep making our tests tougher and tougher.
(Best New Crossbows 2013)
In this year’s test, we’re introducing two new performance metrics that we feel are destined to become industry standards: AD/40, which predicts arrow drop at 40 yards, and KE/20, which provides a true measurement of kinetic energy at a realistic hunting distance, in this case 20 yards.
These two new measurements, combined with our existing and unrivaled evaluation process, will help you decide how to spend your money at the bow shop as you prepare for this season.
