Flushing, MI – Carbon Express®—the world’s leading manufacturer of premium crossbolts is introducing a new, breakthrough line of crossbows, designed to help every type of hunter Shoot Better™.

The two new crossbows in the Covert series offer more performance and an even better fit and feel.  With quality workmanship and a well-balanced design for natural handling, the Covert series delivers the most difficult shots with precision.  The Covert series of crossbows from Carbon Express ® has everything a hunter needs for a best-in-class crossbow experience.

For many hunters, maneuverability is a priority. They want an option that’s lightweight and compact for easy handling in the field. At the same time, they don’t want to compromise on speed and precision.  Carbon Express® responded with the new Covert™ CX-3 SL, delivering an ultra-compact profile and ultimate performance in one lethal crossbow.

The Covert™ CX-3 SL offers blazing speed of more than 355 FPS with a brand new, highly-engineered stock.  Lighter and more responsive than ever,  the Covert™ CX-3SL features a tactical stock design for a balanced feel and more natural handling to give hunters awesome power, accuracy and overall performance.

“Different hunters have different needs,” said Rob Eastman, CEO of Eastman Outdoors. “The Covert™ CX-3 SL features a compact, slim-line design that’s only 13.5 inches when cocked.  That’s very important if you’re hunting in a ground blind or from a treestand. And the brand new, tactical stock design gives hunters the ability to have a more personalized fit, so they can focus on the kill, not the weapon.”

The Covert™CX-3 SL features an ultra-compact CNC machined aluminum riser to provide superior front-end stability, and a Picatinny mounting system complete with a folding fore grip for a customized fit, to deliver increased accuracy.

Celebrity hunters are also excited about the new innovations from Carbon Express. Some of the lucky few to have “test-driven” prototypes include Pigman, host of the #1 reality TV hunting show, as well as the Outdoor Channel’s Shawn Michaels and Keith Mark. All are currently filming segments featuring crossbows from the Carbon Express 2014 lineup.

The Covert™ CX-3SL kit comes complete with 3 Mayhem ® 20” crossbolts; rope cocker; quick detach 3 arrow quiver with side bracket; rail lubricant; 3 practice points and 4 x 32 glass-etched reticle lighted scope.
