I did a lot of investigation on the Ravin crossbows over a couple of days. I changed amoung the R20, R26 and R29 repeatedly and believe all would more than fit my needs.
Since I was having a difficult time making up my mind, I called the gentlemen who loaned me his crossbow last year and determined is an R10. I was very happy with the accuracy, weight and maneuverability of the R10 and the confidence it provided.
Therefore, I ordered a Ravin R10 to arrive on my birthday...sure beats a tie.
As I have said before I love and prefer to hunt with a compound bow. Back in 2005 I bought a Mathews Switchback and it is still in excellent shape, but due to having surgery on both of my triceps I am unable to draw it pull back in cold weather therefore, the need for a crossbow when it colds off.
At 74 my R10 should be all the crossbow I will need and I will continue to hunt on the warmer days, shoot 3D and practice in the backyard with my compound bow.
