2018 Ravin Crossbows
This just posted on Facebook from Wyvernn:
OK, got the go ahead to post this...we are updating our website and will have all the info up there shortly but this will get the conversation started!!
New stock - 2 inches shorter – fits the eye and hand better. The finger reminder flanges are larger, come back further and are vented for a very cool look! The forearm underneath is slightly larger with a shallow groove down both sides to allow a much more comfortable place for the shooter’s support hand. this is a much more natural feeling and comfortable forearm.
New safety switch (it is beefier) The new safety is a lever that clicks audibly to ‘safe’ but is silent when going to ‘fire’. It is very easy to manipulate, answering some concerns/questions by Ravin users.
400 feet per second. Please note this! The new Ravin is 2” SHORTER but is rated at 10 fps FASTER!
430 feet per second. The R20 (as well as the R10) will, like last year always shoot faster than the rated velocity.
New safety See notes above on the safety lever. This is a very nice improvement
Stock same length as old bows. the stock modifications mentioned above will carry over to the R20 but the overall length will not decrease like the R10 did.
Comes with a Vortex scope and a backplate with a dial that moves the stop and can be dialed to 200 yards. This is one sexy set up with a dial indicator that can be bottomed out at 20 yds then one full revolution of the wheel against the next stop will be 100 yds. The stop can be removed, and the wheel will dial in enough elevation to be sighted in at up to 200 yds! Not sure what Vortex scope will be used with this package but it’s an excellent choice considering the hype around that brand.
Both bows will be available in a gun metal grey finish or Predator camo for an upcharge
Lighted knocks will be available at ATA. They will be sold as a complete package, lighted knock and bolt. Replacement lighted knocks will be available but will only work with the bolts from the Lighted knock package, they won’t work with any other Ravin bolts. FINALLY! The most asked for accessory all year for Ravin. As noted, these come as ARROWS only, not as retrofit items for previously purchased arrows. I believe these are OEM from Clean-Shot so we will be familiar with the function. They DO NOT have a practice setting.
