New for 2014 from TenPoint Crossbows are two new bows. The Venom and the Shadow Ultra Light. It looks like TenPoint was focused on the reduction of overall weight with these new crossbows. The Venom weighs in at only 6.5 pounds (without accessories) and the Shadow Ultra Light weighs in at only 6.4 pounds (without accessories) making it TenPoints lightest crossbow ever. Not only are these new crossbows light, but they are fast too. With the Shadow Ultra Light coming in with speeds at 350 feet per second and the Venom crossbow shooting a blazing 372 feet per second. Both speeds are achieved while shooting the TenPoint Pro Lite crossbow arrow equipped with omni nocks.
