Hey guys try to decide between the two stealth nxt or nitrox. You can get them pretty reasonable now because the newer models are coming soon. I am leaning towards the nitro x. Just asking for guys who have shot both side by side to see which one is more accurate and string life. Nitro has a longer power stroke so inherently it should be more accurate.

thanks in advance

I shot both when I was trying to decide too, and I went with the Stealth NXT. I couldn't justify the (then) $400 delta on the price when both were shooting at pretty similar speeds. TenPoint advertised the Stealth as their most accurate xb in 2019, and at that time they advertised the Nitro as their fastest.

In my opinion, you're splitting hairs on both accounts--both are super accurate and super fast. Both are also high-maintenance items in terms of strings and servings... I have committed myself to sending mine in to TP every couple of years for a tune up and new strings/servings because of that. This is, however, likely going to be the case for nearly all of the super fast, super narrow xb's out there today.

The real difference is whether you want to get in on the reverse-draw technology, or if you're happier to stick with the more traditional design that's been around longer. You can't make a wrong decision between these two crossbows!

I own both. They are both extremely accurate and you can't go wrong selecting either one. I personally prefer my Nitro X. The reverse configuration puts the weight back toward your body. It feels much more balanced to me. Mine also came with the Evo X Marksman scope. I prefer it to the Rangemaster. It is better in low-light. Good luck on your choice.

Statgeek did you ever chrono your bow. From what I read from reviews the stealth chronoed well above its ratings. I plan on using evo arrows or taps that weigh 410grns.
I have not chronoed my Stealth... I can only say that it's screamin' fast.

I purchased the TP Evo package (from WyvernCreations.com) which came with their Evo-X scope and, like OldFoxTx, I agree that it is an amazingly impressive scope. I put that scope right up there with Leupolds that I have on a couple rifles. Excellent glass, and as good in low light as anything that I've used.

My Stealth NXT shoots 393fps with the Evo-X arrows, lighted nocks and 100grain Sevr Titanium X 2.1 broadhead. Total ready to hunt arrow weight is 462 grains.

I have owned both.. Had a little trouble with the Stealth NXT..I had the string come off 3 times in about 100 shots..I was told the string might be jumping over or under the omni nock.. So up graded to the Nitro X...Liked it a lot better, was more quiet, faster and balance was better...Since they came out with the Alpha Nock I think a lot of them problems went away...My serving on the Nitro X still looks good after maybe 300 shots ..But I will change strings and cable like TenPoint says after that many shots...
