I love how Killer Instinct names their crossbows. All of their crossbows complement Killer Instinct. Killer Instinct is known for providing good crossbows for a less price. That’s what happened here too. Killer Instinct Furious Pro 9.5 is a complete crossbow package with a reasonable price tag.
You will find a lot of crossbows at a similar price range. What makes the Furious Pro 9.5 different than the others? Let’s find that out in this Killer Instinct Furious Pro 9.5 review.

Build Quality And Design
The design aesthetic of this crossbow is on point. I love the TrueTimber Strata camo finish on this crossbow. Design is a preference thing, you might not like the design as much as I did. That’s understandable. Don’t worry, I am not going to force my design preference on you.
As for the build quality, this crossbow can give a tough fight to many other expensive crossbows. The build quality of this crossbow is good. The weight of Furious Pro 9.5 is only 7lbs. It’s one of the lightest crossbows in this price range.
When cocked, the width of Furious Pro 9.5 shrinks to 9.5″. Indicating the name 9.5. Clever marketing I might say.
You can’t just use a crossbow based on its build quality. If the crossbow is not capable of generating a good amount of power, it won’t be good for long-range or big-game hunting.
Furious Pro 9.5 is capable of generating 139 ft-lbs of kinetic energy. That’s enough to slay down any deer on sight. I was hoping this crossbow would be powerful. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the speed and power of this crossbow.
Talking about speed, Killer Instinct Furious Pro 9.5 can reach the 400 FPS mark with ease. Furious Pro 9.5 can fire a bolt at up to 400 FPS, not more than that. But it will be higher than 395 FPS always. Keep in mind wind plays a big role while firing a bolt.
The draw weight is reasonably lower than most other Killer Instinct crossbows. The draw weight of Furious Pro 9.5 is 185 lbs. I know it’s still high. But you can cut down the draw weight to half by using the rope cocker.
Unfortunately, you won’t be getting any cranking device with this crossbow.
But Killer Instinct Furious Pro 9.5 supports the cranking device. Killer Instinct also offers a dead silent crank for the Furious Pro 9.5. Keep in mind the cranking device will cost you a bit of money.
You won’t be getting TriggerTech technology with this crossbow. But you will be getting a 3 lbs 0 creeps trigger. The feeling of that trigger is the same as using a gun. The handlebar also resembles a rifle. The flight track of Furious Pro 9.5 is made from high quality machined aluminum. You will get a frictionless shooting experience.
