If preparing your crossbow for the hunt feels like a chore for you, you’ll want to check out TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ new ACUrope, which is a portable and fully retractable rope crossbow cocking mechanism. The ACUrope cocks a crossbow like any other device of its type but when the shooter is finished cocking the bow, the ACUrope’s draw cord completely retracts inside one of the two grips. The grips dovetail neatly together to form a compact unit that the hunter can slip inside a belt-mounted holster. The draw cords are made of SPETRA 100 fiber, which is 15-times stronger than steel and is heat and abrasion resistant. A pair of stout constant-force springs in the grips retracts the rope onto an internal spool which is mounted on a durable steel axle and frame. The grips are easy to hold tight and are made of weatherproof, durable nylon.
