Mission Sub 1 or Ravin R10?

No, I haven't won the Powerball, and there's no way I have enough $$$ to blow on either of these. Just for S&G, though, as I wait for the season to begin, I've looked at the stats and asked myself, "if I did have the cash, which of these would I buy?"

My gut feel is the Mission... more history with Matthews, better warranty. Less 'wow' factor, but that isn't anything.

So, there's the question: if you had the money to spend, which would you pick, and why?

(And yeah, I know... in another week, I'll have enough to worry about that I won't be surfing the web and only thinking about hunting... )

Mission.

Proven company that isn't going anywhere.
More arrow options.
Easier to work on.

Ravin was sold to a holdings group a week ago, BTW.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I have a Ravin R9 and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
As far as hitting the lottery in order to buy one, in 2 different magazines the average price for
the top 10 new compounds tested was over a $1000.00

Mission for sure...I'll have a Sub1 at some point because I really like some of the features Mission crossbows have.

The biggest one for me is that you don't need a press to change strings/cables. I already have a Sniper Lite and an RSD, so I can use it on the Sub1 as well.

I'll say this - Have no experience with the Mission or the R10 but I did just put together and shoot in a Ravin R20 Sniper. If the R10 is similar to the R20 I'd say get it. I was very impressed with the features and design. Not to mention the ability to decock the bow without shooting it off. (Maybe the Mission can as well I do not know) and the accuracy impressed me. I did not shoot it past 100 yrds but out to 100 yrds it was ridiculous!
