    Mine is an Excalibur. Don't have any info on the raven.

    I’ve got the R10 and love it. Great range, Great power and great speed and great accuracy. Love the scope and it’s a super light crossbow. Very easy to cock too. There are two problems. The first is that I would never take a shot at a deer beyond 50-60 yards with it even though they advertise a 100 yard range. Once you get beyond the 50 to 60 yard range even a little wind will make your bolt drift. The other issue is that you have to use their bolts and they are very expensive. I do like that they offer prepackaged bolts with a lighted nock. I’m happy with mine overall.

    I’ve seen and shot a couple Ravins, and they were really nice. Personally, I won’t spend that much on a crossbow (or any bow). Their depreciation rate is way to high.

    I usually do my homework before I buy a piece of equipment. I buy quality stuff and never with the intention of resale. I plan to pass these things along to kids and grandkids. I've got a big bone spur in my shoulder and an impingement from scar tissue that is making bowhunting more difficult. I can shoot my bow a couple dozen times if I have a chance to warm up my shoulder but in the stand I cant warm up before j take a shot.

    That Ten Point Vapor is a nice looking set up too. Might have to do some studying on that one too.

    I’ve got the 10 Point Titan Extreme and love it. Taken several deer and turkey with it.
