Ravin Crossbows are one of the few products on the market today that outperform the hype. Traditionally, I am a vertical bow shooter and was skeptical of any new technologies in the crossbow world. But when I took the Ravin R9 Crossbow to the range, I was extremely impressed when I was consistently able to hit a tennis ball sized target at 80 yards!

After shooting this bow, I am confident that anyone looking for the best possible crossbow on the market, Ravin would be my recommendation!

What makes Ravin Crossbows so exceptional and high performing? They mastered cam efficiency with their patented HeliCoil cam system. The cams rotate 340° and remain balanced, resulting in unmatched shooting accuracy. With a 6 inch axle to axle length, it is the most compact crossbow on the market. A free floating arrow rest eliminates any rail friction, which leads to increased accuracy and speed. The Trac-Trigger system combined with the Versa-Draw cocking system allow for safe and easy cocking and arrow loading. It only takes 10 pounds of force to cock the system and has the ability to un-cock. A lightweight stock makes this bow extremely comfortable to carry for long periods of time.

The Ravin R9 Crossbow Package consists of revolutionary technology dedicated to exceedingly improve every hunters unmatched accuracy. This fully assembled and pre-tuned crossbow measures at 6″ from axle to axle when it’s cocked and ready to make a definite target. The Heli-coil feature makes the Ravin R9 crossbow a state-of-the-art redound system by keeping the cables away from the top and bottom cams in helical grooves. This top-notch quality allows the cams to rotate 340° and remain balanced, while resulting in an accurate impact with 390 fps speed and 135 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy.

This Predator Camo package includes 100 yard illuminated scope, quiver/mounting bracket, 6 Ravin arrows with nocks and 100 gr. practice points and removable cocking handle.
