Question, is this crossbow cockable with a rope sled, or must you use the Acu draw?
If the bow has a "hanger" instead of a stirrup, at the very least you will need a full size stirrup. Second is, if it has a string slot behind the rail on the stock then you can use a TP Sled Rope Cocker. My Stealth NXT came with a "hanger". I purchased the full size stirrup to use should the Accu Draw Pro fail. It has the needed slot for the string. I can't see anyone being able to draw that bow with a direct pull. Let's see what the expert response is.

Maybe Randy @10PtCrossbow can answer, @JOE PA ? I think it would be doable because there is a rope slot and I used to hand/sled cock the Stealth NXT. Our test bow came with the hanger and not the foot stirrup, though. Maybe it's a safety thing from TenPoint's perspective...they don't want the user shooting the sled into their foot should something go wrong????

Exactly. When I called TP about the full size stirrup, that's exactly what they said. You do not want to put your foot under the barrel when cocking with an AccuDraw. I have a full size stirrup for my Stealth NXT should I need it and already had a few sled cockers that I used for my Horton Storm and Carbon Nitro. Let's be realistic, you can put on the full size stirrup and keep your foot away, just as with the "hanger".

That is why they recently came out with a new spool cover that is supposed to fix the breakage problem on the cranks.

Just shot my new Wicked Ridge NXT 400. Shocked at how noisy it was. I'm a new crossbow shooter. Is this noise something you live with or can something be added to reduce?

Not really. You can add limb dampeners but it won't be noticeable. I have the Stealth NXT which is almost the same. I don't detect noise in excess of all the crossbows I have used before. Crossbows are not as quiet as compound bows.
