If I had to make that choice I would be buying the Nemesis. That is a heck of a deal.
You can do alot of you own work for that much.But the savings would be 7-800 dollars.
Agreed … I have two old Scorpyds that have killed a boatload of deer in the rain, snow, mud, blood & corruption, and have performed flawlessly; and with nearly zero maintenance. World class quality coupled to world class performance. "It don't git no bedder den dat."I’d go Nemesis, especially since the Ravin is only an R10 and two year old technology vs R20 or R29. I have an R15 that is going nowhere as my backup & I really like it but I bought a new Nemesis and it gives me so much more KE while shooting heavier arrows for western hunting. I doubt whether the warranty would be an issue as the Scorpyd’s are built like a tank.
IMHO the R10 is the best Ravin but the Nemesis is a better built bow.Looking to buy a first crossbow. Can buy a 6 month old Scorpyd Nemesis 480 with AD Pro crank, 12 Spynal Tapp arrows,rope cocker, extra custom soft case. Hand crank,limbsaver sling, Hawke Pro scope all in mint condition with less than 50 shots. Other option is new Ravin R10 package for$100 more(plus tax another 90). what are your opinions. I know the Nemesis is in perfect shape and has top of the line equipment all around. Which would you buy?
True but as I stated it has been addressed.lots of issues with the Nemesis. 50 shots maybe on string is totally un except able.
I will not own a bow that i can not set up tune and shoot through the season on set of strings.
The Ravins not much better ,but the r10 when set up correctly will easily go 400 shots or more .
no one can can come on here and claim 400 shots on Nemesis with out lying.
sanding the claws down, shimmimg limbs.......you got to be kidding me.
All that to get a bow that will be 18 f.p.s faster then a slow Ravin R20.
Having said that...I still want a Nemesis, but its not there yet.
Just the bringer of truth here.
