The best long range crossbow that we’ve ever seen is here. Ravin Crossbows delivers the R9, a crossbow with a range of 100 yards. The crossbow is being touted as having shot tight groups of bolts at long ranges. Now that sounds like something I could use during whitetail hunting season.
Technology Increases Range
Reliable, long distance shooting starts with superior engineering. With patented HeliCoil™ technology, the Ravin R9 crossbow measures just six inches from axle-to-axle and delivers unprecedented downrange accuracy – with groups as tight as three inches at 100 yards.
The hunting world is getting a wake-up call as a new brand is born and a revolutionary crossbow hits the market. Powered by the groundbreaking HeliCoil™technology, the new R9 Crossbow from Ravin delivers rifle-like accuracy, handling and devastating deer-killing power.
Best Engineered Crossbow
Designed from the ground up to be the most accurate and efficient crossbow technology ever, patented HeliCoil technology coils the cables away from both the top and bottom of the cams in helical grooves. This keeps the cams perfectly balanced for increased speed and downrange accuracy. Sounds good, but the real functionality is that it extends the effective range of the hunter.
The exclusive design allows the cams to rotate to a near full rotation of 340 degrees while keeping the cams perfectly level when drawing and shooting the crossbow. This also results in a 100 percent free-floating arrow when fired, eliminating the friction that other crossbows experience. The result for deer hunters: increased speed and deadly accuracy at longer ranges means more tags on deer and fewer left in your pocket.
Long on Thought = Long Shot
“HeliCoil technology is the starting point for a crossbow that literally changes the way crossbows function. Our goal was to reimagine every piece of the bow, with the goal of delivering a rifle-like experience for the shooter. Once we perfected the HeliCoil design, everything else fell into place. The Ravin R9 provides unmatched downrange accuracy and incredible killing power from the most compact axle-to-axle measurement on the market,” stated Ravin’s Mike Weinkauf.
Like most crossbows, the R9 can shoot a long distance, but how many are also effective at doing it reliably? Downrange accuracy is Ravin’s calling card with prototype and initial production bows regularly holding six-arrow groups at three inches or less at 100 yards. But the similarities between the new crossbow and a rifle go well beyond accuracy. The overall axle width in the un-cocked position is a mere 10.5 inches, and is an amazing six inches when fully drawn, making Ravin the smallest, most compact crossbow in existence.
Ravin Crossbows was started by a group of hard-core white-tailed deer hunters and product designers with the single goal of creating the world’s best crossbow. Over the past 20 years this group has had an incredible track record of design and product development. With a wide range of archery products to their credit, they moved their focus to the crossbow industry.
This top notch design and engineering group set out to produce the most accurate crossbow in the hunting world. This was accomplished with the invention of HeliCoil technology. The revolutionary technology has several industry-changing advantages that all work together to create the most accurate crossbow ever designed. Their new R9 is one of the best crossbows ever made and offers real, effective long range deer hunting capabilities.
