Light, fast and affordable seems to be the highlights of the 2020 lineup. This is the best Wicked Ridge group of bows from TenPoint and should be very popular.

The narrow M370 lightweight with ACUDraw should be a huge hit!

Well done TenPoint!

I noticed on their website that they do not state any arrow weights used to determine speed. Probably used a 370 or less grain arrow.
If they followed their 2019 program for Spec info. (and I'd bet they did) they used the ProLite arrow to produce the "Up To" speeds for these xbows, which is a 370 gn 20" carbon.

Sooo the RDX and Invader are both claiming 400 fps but 8 fp difference in ke. Common core math?
Actually they got different grain arrows,consequently different speeds. It looks like to me they will shoot different with same arrow. A little confusing.
Correct.... The RDX 400 shoots the heavier XX75 (435 gn) 400 fps. and has 140 FP KE, the Invader 400 shoots the Pro Lite (370 gn) 400 fps and has 132 FP KE. Pretty normal math if you know the variables ;)

I thought the RDX was only getting 380ish with a 425 gn?
I'm not sure what owners have been reporting but looking at the TenPoint info. it's 400 fps.

Your the one that told me that lol...didn't you set a couple RDX400 up for some friends?
There ya go. Consider your source.... ;)

The RDX400 xbows I've setup were packaged with Chameleons, Zombies then the EVO-X arrows. I don't remember chronoing either of Jerrys arrows but I may have. The EVO-X arrows are a bit heavier at 455-457 gn with Alpha Bright nocks and I did test my brother in laws RDX 400 and they flew 385 fps.

Gotcha...I thought you said 385 was with a 400 or 425 gn. My bad

It is rated at400 fps with a 370 gn arrow. Have had several people tell theirs shoots around 385 with 400 gn arrow. 455 gn at 385 fps would mean 410-415 with 400 gn arrow. This a large discrepancy. Were cams advanced?

Here's the RDX400 SPEC info. off the TenPoint site. I don't see any info. on the Pro Lite 370 gn arrow.

I'm thinking TenPoint better take a look at what they're publishing. Lol!! I've seen it posted on here several times also that people are getting around 385fps with a 400gr arrow.

Seems like everyone out there shoots about 15 fps slower with 400 gn arrow than advertised. Well, except ravin. I think they actually speed rate using 400 gn. I know my ripper 415 shot 401fps with 400 gn. My ts 370 was rated with 380 gn. But is shooting 378fps with 400 gn. After going to x99 strings and cables and advancing cams a little.
