I have the CenterPoint sniper 370 and I love it. If I were going to upgrade, I would consider this.

Good friend of mine got one of the first off the assembly line about a month ago. I haven't shot it yet, but he measured the trigger pull at #7 which is very high for crossbows. He contacted the company and was told that they had to increase the trigger pull on this model for safety reasons. My buddy said it felt like pulling the trigger with the safety on it was so high. Other than that, he was impressed with the value for dollar.

Interesting,,, what's Centerpoint"s warranty policy ?


Seems like the bow companies are like the Old GM automakers 5 models - different brand names - same parts - different prices to meet the broad range of household income..


why spend $1599.00 for a R10 when you can get this guy for $799.00

What is the same is the "technology" of the front end on the two bows. The components that make up the two bows are very different. If one doesn't mind a bow being a little rough around the edges to get similar performance and handling characteristics, then the Centerpoint is probably the better choice.

They worth the money yes. They are pretty solid, but they are half the price for a reason. They absolutely lack the refinement of the Ravin and also do not have the same down range accuracy as the Ravin. But if you want the "SKINNY" design and you have a top end budget of $800 it is probably the best option out there.
