Top Features of the Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit

Powerful and Swift

Since the Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit can shoot its bolts at remarkable speeds, I am able to take the shot when it counts the most and not have to doubt whether or not it will land, so long as I am accurate. The Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit shoots up to 355 feet per second and fires with an incredible amount of power thanks to its 175 pounds of draw weight.

No More Dry Firing

The Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit features precision engineering that is intuitive and robust. It knows when I have not loaded a bolt onto it, making sure that it won’t fire when it isn’t supposed to. This saves me plenty of energy and time re-cocking the bow unnecessarily, which in turn helps to ensure I don’t get tired out too easily while out hunting. That said, when I do want to take my shot, I only have to pull a trigger weight of a smooth 3.5 pounds.

Lighted Scope

Coming with the Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit is a 32 by 4 multi-reticle scope. This scope is lit up by both a green and a red light, allowing me to use it in all kinds of light. I like this in the morning especially due to the variable light amounts I have to work with.

High Quality Composition

Something about the Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit that I noticed straight out of its packaging is the fact that it is made excellently. This crossbow has quite obviously been manufactured with a serious level of skill and know-how. It comes with an ultra compact, billet aluminum CNC riser design that measures only 13.5 inches when cocked that I love because nothing gets in the way of my shots. It also makes the Carbon Express Covert CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Kit feel comfortable in my hands.
