Ravin Predator R9 Crossbow

The innovative Ravin Predator R9 Frictionless Crossbow has a sleek design and narrow profile that makes it look almost rifle-like. Ravin broke the mold for traditional Crossbows when they developed their proprietary Helicoil Technology. With features like frictionless flight, a trigger system that always stays centered on the string, and a built-in cocking system that requires only 10 pounds of force to draw, the Ravin Predator R9 Bow is groundbreaking. A crossbow that's significantly narrower than any other on the market, the Ravin Predator R9 Trac-Trigger Crossbow is a beautiful combination of speed, power and accuracy.

If your going to hunt and spend lots of time in the field...there is no other choice you need to make on which crossbow has it all....compact ..speed...light...did i say speed..crazy.......penetration unreal..very nice to carry and shoulder..biggest thing is which one to buy....R9,15 or wait for new 10and 20 coming out...im not sure if a few fps will really make me spend another 500 bucks....so i went r9...love it....new one have updated with level on slide ...scope leveler..new safety switch....and of course little more speed...just cant see spending another $1,000 for an extra 30fps...r9 is perfect....

I have never owned a crossbow before, I've been waiting on something extraordinary before converting from my vertical bow. This is it! A combination of unbelievable speed and accuracy. I especially like the hand crank giving the flexibility of loading in the stand and unloading without firing a bolt. The illuminated scope is also very nice, especially if hunting in a blind. I have shot out to 50 yards and have no problem obtaining 3 inch groups.
