Is the 100 yd thing going to be the norm ?
I had mixed feelings when the guy asked if it came with a 100 yd scope .
Think about the new guy buying this bow that is getting into hunting and see's wow it has aiming points out to 100 yds
cool i can shoot deer out to 100 yds .
I just can not see taking a shot at any animal at that range !!!

Gents,

That genie has been out of the bottle for a long time and people do enjoy recreational shooting and don't see that as a negative.

To me the Xbow looks cool and busy at the same time. Anything new and different will get lots of comments both negative and positive. Not sure I get the riser bar the slides in and out to protect your arrow concept. I'd get rid of that in a New York second and bet that would shave at least 10 oz. to a 1 lb from the Xbow weight. That sliding riser bar looked bulky to me.

There is no denying the crank system was impressive and you got to be blind not to appreciate the silent simplicity cranking forward and backwards to cock and de-cock the crossbow. Beyond that I'll have to wait to see how this develops with extensive reviews. Remember this is version 1.0.

To me just another Xbow. Ravin for a short period differentiated itself with it's narrow design but now narrow is the norm. After that 15 minute moment :eek: if shoots like a crossbow and functions like a crossbow it's just another crossbow. Let's hunt.

You are correct some people like to shoot out to 100 practicing , i have no problem with that !!!
But what you did not here when the engineer answered , the , does it come with a 100 yd scope ?
The answer should have been >
Yes , but we do not condone taking 100 yd shots on animals !!!!
It is all about education and it starts with the company's and dealers !!!!!!!

Yes but Ravin opened that bag by the TV commercials telling everyone they had rifle like accuracy out to 100 yards! The new people coming into crossbow useage should definitely be educated on ethical shots and ranges

That is conflating a bit in my opinion. People should be educated before doing any archery hunts.

To me you are making assumptions if that is your position. For me I never purchased a Xbow with the mindset that I was going to shoot an animal at 100 yards. That never entered my thought process. I just wanted to hit the target and improve. If my expectations where higher than that taking a big leap.

First off , you can not hunt unless you purchase a weapon or borrow one .
So IMO it should start at the root , the weapon maker or dealer or friend you borrow from .

Second ,i never assume , only offer up opinion !!

Third , i guess you are smarter than most when you purchased your weapon .
