Covert™ CX-3 SL+ Crossbow Ready-to-Hunt Kit

The Carbon Express® Covert™ CX-3 SL+ is a lightweight, ultra-compact crossbow that combines best-in-class speed and power in an industry-leading compact design. It packs more performance per inch than any other crossbow. That’s because the Covert™ CX-3 SL+ crossbow is slimmer and shorter without compromising performance. The narrow limb profile and shorter overall length create ideal balance and a natural feel. From the moment you shoulder it, you’ll have the absolute confidence to make your best shot.
