2018 Killer Instinct Crossbows

Each year, all brands are trying to offer their customers new features or simply a whole new crossbow model. It is a difficult task to keep up with all the brands on the market. Gathering information to stay updated on each model ask a lot of time and we know how precious is your time.

This article is made to help you keep up with all the new arrival for 2018 Killer Instinct crossbows.

Killer Instinct Ripper 415 Crossbow

Attracting a lot of attention for 2018 Killer Instinct, the Ripper 415 crossbow is definitely a unique product. An over 400 FPS for a bit under $400. Is there more to say about that?

Of course, the slick design of the ripper is really aggressive and fit perfectly into your shoulder as it allows great adjustability for the stock and forearm grip. Killer instinct reached another level with this model. 

The Ripper drives bolts at 415 feet per second and 149 foot-pounds of kinetic energy. Pair that power with a rugged aluminum shooting rail and CNC machined riser for extreme ‘sub-1-inch’ accuracy at 80 yards and beyond.

Looking for a crisp break at 3.5 pounds, the KillerTech Trigger is a game changer in long range shooting. The Ripper is a great package for any people that want to start crossbow shooting or thinking of hunting with a crossbow. Even more, experienced shooters should be impressed by this new model.

My concern would be to know if the string can stand such velocity. I would recommend to wax everything as much as possible.

Killer Instinct Swat 408 Crossbow

Killer Instinct Swat 408 Crossbow 

Unique in its category, the Swat 408 generates a blistering 408 FPS. If you aren't familiar with this technology, the Swat has its string completely concealed into its barrel. The fact that the string floats freely in between the barrels eliminate friction and then increase the accuracy.

Also, the AccuTac Barrel System that concealed the string acts as a noise and vibration suppressor, resulting in one of the quietest crossbows available. 

With the Swat 408, the bolt and broadhead are now completely concealed in the riser for maximum safety. More options are possible to add like deadening noise and vibration silencers for additional stealth.

The trigger breaks cleanly at 2.5 pounds for a maximum feel while aiming. The package will meet your needs.

Killer Instinct Hero 380 Crossbow

A "sub-1-inch" crossbow under $300 and generating about 380 FPS should also attract your attention. Built on a sleek and compact crossbow frame, the Hero 380 is perfect for the first-time crossbow user or a seasoned veteran. Adjustable from 32" to 34.5" with its retractable stock.

Made for any kind of adventure, the Killer Instinct Hero 380 is easy to shoot and easy to master in few shots making it an ultra-fast accurate crossbow and this, well beyond 60 yards.

The crossbow is a lightweight at only 5.8 pounds for maximum maneuverability. Ultra safe crossbow with its vented forearm grip and its Killer Instinct anty-dry fire mechanism. The included package is basic but efficient.

Killer Instinct Furious 370 FRT Crossbow

Killer Instinct Furious 370 FRT Crossbow

The Killer Instinct Furious is a great collapsible stock and folding foot stirrup crossbow for 2018. The folding stirrup can also be used as a shooting bipod to increase your accuracy. A nice feature integrated into the crossbow.

Less draw weight to pull to cock the string into the latch making it easier to cock for most people. The TriggerTech Frictionless Release Technology breaks cleanly at 2 pounds. The trigger is the keystone of this crossbow. The absence of creep is phenomenal and has a huge impact on the accuracy of this crossbow.

Everything included in this package is there to maximize deadening the noise and the vibrations. It is probably its downside, you will have to add maximum tools to reduces the vibrations.

Killer Instinct CHRG'D 330 Crossbow

Killer Instinct CHRG'D 330 Crossbow

This crossbow should exceed your expectations. Low price. Fine Engineering and quality thru out. Lightweight, fast and easy to cock with the string. Perfect for all budget and delivers great results.

Great for beginner or seasoned archer that aren't yet sure about their passion into crossbow shooting. Also has a foldable foot stirrup that can be used as a bipod to stabilized your shots. Paired with the 3.5 pounds trigger, you have a great accurate starting crossbow. 

Aggressive vented stock with an adjustable forearm grip to maximize safety on the CHRG'D. The fact that the stock isn't adjustable would be something to keep in mind if you intend to purchase the crossbow.
