Contender Tyro 2

#

The TYRO 2 is the result of a value engineering exercise applied to our long-serving CONTENDER tournament crossbow to develop an affordable lower priced Target crossbow without compromising performance. The TYRO 2 fills the gap between the EXCALIBUR APEX and the CONTENDER PARADIGM. It uses many of the CONTENDER parts. The main frame comprises two outer aluminium plates separated by canvas bakelite infill. The track is formed directly into the canvas bakelite. The trigger is the same as that used in the CONTENDER. The TYRO 2 can be supplied with a range of prod mounts and prods ranging from solid POWERTUFF fibreglass to composite fibreglass/csarbon fibre/wood suitable for all fittings. Metal parts are anodised in a range of colours.

The TYRO 2 complies with both IAU and WCSA specifications.

Tyro Standard configuration including Cartel micrometer foresight with prod mount but no limbs (as pictured): $1578 (Australian dollars)

Price for CONTENDER composite figreglass and wood limbs: $286
