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 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

Tenpoint!
Have all the thrills and frills that you like in the Ravin and have the best backing and best history of any company.


that was an easy choice.

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!
