Looking at upgrading to a TP here soon, and torn between the RDX 400 and M 370. Don't really think the best option of handling them both and then deciding between the two is an option, as they are scarce locally. So, which would you go with for an all around bow for stand hunting in the Eastern US out to a max range of 50? The M 370 looks like an appealing way to leave some room in the budget for a decent optic, but I've always been interested in a reverse draw. Thanks in advance for any experiences with either platform!

The RDX400 is a solid package and a nice value for both it's RDX features and the speed it can produce. It's also narrow when cocked and reasonably short which is valuable in a stand. I think the appeal of the M-370 will be it's "light-weight" value. My choice would be the RDX400.

Optics are definitely important, so if you're at the end of your budget, that may be a tough call... Nevertheless, I don't know if you'd have enough "leftover" cash after buying the 370 to invest in high-dollar optics anyway. Both of my brothers bought the RDX400 and hunted with them this year successfully. Both really love that xb. One of them used a different scope that I gifted to him (he bought the RDX without optics), but the other has been quite happy with the scope that came on the RDX from TenPoint. If I were in that budget range, I'd personally buy that RDX400. I don't own one, but every time I see it I think "wow, what a great bow at a great price." I think it's a super value.

I cant speak for the 370 but...the 400 is a very nicely balanced bow and will shoot with the best of them...
Thanks so much for the SA on all this, guys. Very helpful. I guess the question at this point comes down to this- the specs on the two bows I mention seem very similar to the higher end Tenpoints (Nitros, Titans). So, is there any reason to go with those top end bows anymore? If no, did Tenpoint just undercut themselves with the new 2020 bows? Going for a "buy once, cry once" solution here.

I ageee on the RDX400. I have the Horton Vortec 2017 model and it is fantastic. Basically TP took the Vortec and put 165lb limbs instead of 135lb limbs on it and gave it new Camo and called it the WIcked Ridge RDX400. Most likely because they decided to phase out all Horton brand items. I love my Vortec.

I think the selection is broad and I think their is choices for all people. I didn't count the number of models now vs before,but number is just right now. They didn't need the Horton line anymore-even if they are great bows.
Next year you will probably see bows in the 500 FPS range?

I love the new features Tenpoint added on their new crossbows and not go after more speed. Why would we need more speed? What I wanted in a new crossbow is exactly what they did.
I can’t figure how they can improve these new bows except trying to reduce weight. Not sure if that’s possible???
With these new bows, accuracy is there, great scope with the Evo-X , new trigger with no creep, the best cocking and de-cocking system, well thought out safety functions, and put together with the best quality in a crossbow, with all the speed needed for hunting.
Biggest problem I’ve got is to figure out how I can purchase one! Lol
These new crossbows are going to give Tenpoint and their employees a very good year.
Congratulations to them all.
