Has anyone noticed a difference in accuracy between the Ten Point cocking devices?
Particularly between the accurope and accusled. I just ordered a Shadow NXT with an acudraw and was looking at adding another cocking device as a backup or just something quicker.

I have the Stealth NXT with AcuDraw Pro, and that's how I cock it. I also purchased a TenPoint AcuSled as a possible back-up, given the issues that I've seen with the AcuDraw's. I adjusted the string length in the AcuSled (per instructions) so that I was able to cock the xb with it, and when I discharged into a target, it hit exactly where I wanted it to. That being said, I hope to never have to use it--or at least not more than a time or two! It's very hard to cock these high-power xb's by hand, and while the TenPoint AcuSled makes it a little easier to keep the pressure even from side-to-side, it's still a hard pull for me. Of course... I have a desk-job, so I'm not as strong as a lot of guys on this forum.

Thanks Statgeek. I am new to crossbows after many years using a vertical bow. Certain issues with my eyes and neck made shooting a compound bow not fun anymore. I bought a CenterPoint Mercenary for under $200 as a "backup" for this archery season. Ended up using the crossbow more during the season than my compound and learned some things along the way. Decided to upgrade to a Ten Point Shadow NXT. I have no problem cocking the CenterPoint and like the simplicity of a rope/sled cocker. Look forward to getting out and shooting it after the muzzleloader season ends here in WI. I've learned quite a bit from this forum so far and I am waiting on some arrows from Jerry at Tapp Nation.

Any of the TenPoint cocking systems that use "sleds" have a guide so there should be little to no appreciable variance in the pull center of the string compared to the ACUdraw or Pro systems. If you have the ACURope or 50/52 systems that use hooks vs the sled, you might consider marking the string center as a reference if you want to be 100% sure of your draws. Another approach that some folks use is to add extra serving on the outside of the area the hooks attach to to ensure they mount the same every time and have an even pull.

Good luck with the new Shadow!
