Ravin, which means violent seizure of prey is a bit new to the game. The Ravin R9 Predator is an innovation of hunters and world class product designers to make sure that the reverse draw idea technology develops into the most accurate crossbow ever. At first glance, this crossbow would actually make you wonder what it is because of its very unique design.
Its helicoil technology and unique limb design makes sure that the cables are far from the bottom and top of the cams. This is a complete package, it comes with an assemble and pre-tuned crossbow, an integrated cocking system, a hundred yard illuminated scope, six nocks and ravin arrows, a quiver and mounting bracket, 6 pieces 100-gr field tips, a warranty card, and an instruction manual of course.
Since you get this assembled and pre-tuned, all you have to do is mount the quiver, scope, and cocking handle. The scope that comes with this provides aiming points up to 100 yards, and it’s one of the most accurate ones we’ve tried. This is a powerful arrow, it can fling arrows at 390 FPS and it rings in 135 feet per LBS kinetic energy too. This is a very powerful, consistent, and powerful crossbow, it’s new to the market and it comes with a price but if you plan to hunt for a long time and you need the extra power, this one won’t disappoint you.
