Some destructive criticism please! Just like when the Assassin came out!

I like to make smart ass comments. I do it every chance I get.
Apparently this bow cost something like $2700.00. So, I'll leave it up to rich smart asses to buy one and offer comments...I mean, a review. 8) 8) 8)

Raven doesn’t give a hoot about crossbow fighting for full inclusion in every state! They are still detrimental with their arsnine slogan of your next rifle bs! They only care about the money and that’s it! Even if I had the money, I’d never buy a Raven or support that company in anyway!

I'll take three (or four) Micro's instead please. Wow, they're proud of it.

It looks very sleak and slim in all of the photos I could find. I also noticed that I couldn't find a photo of it with a quiver attached. An Assassin looks really sleak too if you take all of the accessories off of it. How about a picture with everything you are getting for that price? Does it still look as slim with all of the bells and whistles attached?

I suppose if'en you jus had to have one of them n had enuff money to burn a wet mule runnin go fer it. Fer half that price one of them new 10 pts that are simular would be a better buy n better Customer service. I have couple of speed crossbows that are very nice. I have couple of sweet spot crossbows that will still kill game in 20 more yrs. Jus reserve or put on a new flemish string. My Pipsqueak will kill tick toters every bit as well as that Ravin thing jus abit slower in air time fer the arrow :lol:

I imagine that the kind of buyer who pays that kind of money for a bow. Probably wont be doing their own work to it.

Wow and just think they are not legal in New York due to limb width and look at the wt bare bow 7.1 pounds . We have people getting them here and expect to be shooting a deer at 100 yards with it because the ad they saw said it could do you know how many deer or whatever are going to wounded because of this it is not going to help the crossbow hunters at all .

Since this bow is advertised as having only a 12lb draw weight, wouldn’t that make it illegal to hunt with in most states ? :eusa-think: :wtf:
