SpyderWeb Targets vs. Fastest Crossbows of the 2019 ATA Show

There is no category of gear to advance as quickly as crossbows have in the last five years or so.

SpyderWeb Targets is committed to keeping up with these new advancements in crossbow technology so you can shoot safely, confidently, and enjoy practicing the sport you love.

Here are six of best (and fastest) new crossbows of the 2019 ATA show and how they fare in a showdown with a SpyderWeb Target:

Ravin R26 Crossbow: 400 FPS
Ravin made a huge splash at the 2017 and 2018 ATA shows, and they did it again in 2019 by debuting one of the most advanced crossbows on the market. Despite only a 9-1/2-inch power stroke, the new Ravin R26 still launches bolts at 400 FPS. But these ripping speeds still won’t leave a scratch on a SpyderWeb Target.

Mission Sub-1 XR Crossbow: 410 FPS
Mission's Sub-1 was a big deal at last year's ATA, and the new Mission Sub-1XR is the follow-up model to that successful bow. The Mission Sub-1 XR crossbow can torch a bolt at 410 FPS (35 FPS faster than its predecessor), but it won’t even come close to torching a SpyderWeb Target.

Excalibur Assassin TD Crossbow: 420 FPS
The Excalibur Assassin TD promises to be a fantastic hunting package for anyone who looking for simplicity, toughness, and reliability. The Excalibur Assassin TD crossbow boasts rock-solid accuracy and a blistering 420 feet per second of raw power. But it’s no match for the stopping power of a SpyderWeb Target. 

Barnett HyperGhost Crossbow: 425 FPS
The Barnett HyperGhost is as fast or faster than most and boasts, “ultra-deep penetration combined with unstoppable speed.” But SpyderWeb Targets easily disprove this theory as the speed of this crossbow completely stoppable and with minimal penetration for easy arrow removal.

TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow: 470 FPS
In addition to being a flamethrower, the TenPoint Nitro XRT’s slim profile and easy handling make it a dream option for hunting from blinds and tight-cover situations. The Nitro XRT Crossbow feeds your need for speed and boasts unprecedented knockdown power. But it won’t be able to knock down a SpyderWeb Target!

Scorpyd Nemesis Crossbow: 480 FPS
Scorpyd continues to be a pioneer in crossbow technology, and they're not taking their foot off the gas with the Nemesis. The Scorpyd Nemesis crossbow is the fastest crossbow the world has seen (so far) with touted speeds of 480 FPS that won’t even budge a SpyderWeb Target.

There’s no other target on the market prepared to stand up to the technology defining this new era of crossbows.

SpyderWeb Targets has been an industry leader responsible for innovating archery equipment geared for today and the future.

Haven’t tried it yet

Works as advertised

This target works great and as advertised. Shooting it with a 2021 TenPoint Seige at 410 fps, the bolts went in 4 to 5 inches, and came out easy. Should have purchased this target first!

pricey but worth it

Freakishly fast shipping. I had the target within 2 days of my order! Read the reviews and thought they were likely exaggerated but essentially they were accurate. I was shooting a Ravin R29X at 450 FPS. My initial sight in shots were at 20 yards. 6 inches of penetration but took all 5 fingers to pull not just the two as some people experienced. Still not difficult to pull even under the extreme conditions. A little pricey but you need to decide if you want to wrestle with arrows in cheaper targets or pay the price of having easy arrow removal. Id rather spend my time shooting than pulling and scraping residue off arrows..


Good buy

Free shipping and it really does stop arrows with two finger pull outs, face is already showing wear but i have sharpies long as it stops them


After purchasing a new crossbow and doing some research for a new target I called Spyder web targets. To my surprise Kelly the owner picked up the phone and was very helpful answering my questions about what target was right for me.I could not be happier with this target. Retrieving arrows is a breeze
