They are ALL expensive. I'm not knocking them because I've never tried one, but I don't know of any costing less than a kings ransom.I see there’s a R9,R10,R20,R26,R29. Are there other models also? Which is the newest, best and most expensive. Two of my buddies have them but I don’t know much about them. My friends’s Raven broke this year before season while it was being cocked. He took it to an authorized dealer( not where he bought it, I think it came from Bass Pro Shop ), and they lent him a demo model to use till his came back.
I recently bought 2 R-10s for me and my son. I did a lot of research before buying them.I see there’s a R9,R10,R20,R26,R29. Are there other models also? Which is the newest, best and most expensive. Two of my buddies have them but I don’t know much about them.
Sounds like they were making excuses for not wanting to spend the money on the inventory. They have been very reliable. Probably more reliable than the majority of other crossbows.How are they as far as reliability and long term issues?I was at Jim's sport center in Clearfield over the summer and overheard them tell a guy that they wouldn't carry them because of all the problems.I thought that was odd because I hadn't heard anyone complaining about problems on the message boards.
It's the biggest shop in the area.If they wanted them,I can't see why they couldn't get them but who knows.It's good to hear they they've been reliable.I'm not into crossbows but I did handle one at a Field and stream and have to admit,it was pretty slick.Are they quiet for a crossbow?Sometimes small shops do not meet the qualifications set by manufacturers. If you can't sell them you bash them.
Good to know you have some experience with this bow. I just bought the same one from my neighbor upstate but have not shot it yet.Get on YouTube and check out the reports. Other than strings and cables there are no problems and the string and cable problem is about wear and not a big issue.
