I shot one last week , very nice and well equipped ,didn't find anything negative about it , it was pricey 1700 , but ya get that almost ina new bow and accessories but I was looking for a no cam because of my shoulder issues , far as the ravin goes I'd say well worth the money

I'd be scared it was gonna blow apart...that's a ton of pressure built up in a small area. Like playing with a mouse trap...

I am thinking i will set back and watch. After my buddy bought the "New and improved Mo Fo" once (it was a Bowtech) and it "blew up" on him... Causing 16 stiches and ruin a nice set of clothes and shoes.....Then the same happened to me with another brand....I tend to wait a year or so to see the reviews and reliability. The bow definitely catches your eye.

I remember when crossbow speeds hit 220/230 fps. People were amazed! Now there are bows shooting 370-440 fps???? At what point do they start "coming apart" after some use? I hope never but it has to make you wonder.

Or truck windows. That's a poachers dream machine. Some things shouldn't be made, that's my stance on this one.
Really? Crooks will always be crooks and people who obey the law will always obey the law. So in my mind the tool doesn't make the person's decisions good or bad. IMHO anyway.

Did I say it would make a crook? The honest guy will always be honest.

One of the guys that comes out to Illinois and hunts with us got a Raven earlier this year... So far hes had no problems and says it shoots great.. Like Rick said just seems a little TOO radical... So let them work out the bugs, which I'm sure there will be some... I'm ordering a Horton Storm RDX next week as I want to use it this year for bears here in Jersey... Things will be up close and personal at about 10 yds. so I want to take the movement factor of drawing a bow out of the picture.... I'll still deer hunt with my Martin Onza 3 as that's what I like...
