It is a really nice bow! I changed out the quiver. So maybe a better quiver would be nice. The bow is so short that the quiver and arrows got a little in the way for me. I might end up carrying them separately. I also put a different scope on it although that probably wasn't necessary, I just wish there was better glass out there for crossbows in general.

I am kind of curious what they can do in 2020 to make it better. I would like to see the safety in a better location. But other than that, it is a really accurate fast, small, light for a crossbow, package. If there is a new one for 2020 maybe you can get a deal on the R26?

18 inches would be nice. Are there any commercial bolts available that will work?

They make them . And Jerry at Southshore archery. Does to I like southshore.
I made my own . Ordered a half dozen Zombie slayers and cut them myself and installed 110 gr inserts and got some nock inserts off big bird here on CrossbowNation , point insert_110gr, arrow shaft with veins =177.25, nock insert 8 gr, nock 12 gr = til wr 307.5gr +broadhead 100 gr=407.5 . And these shoot excellent through the R26
and won’t cost an arm and a leg

I don't need short arrows since I have an R10 and an R20, but I did notice in the Iowa state DNR code that arrows must be at least 18 inches long for hunting. I don't know if that includes the length of the broad-head or not.

I am luckier than most I guess , I have a small lathe . So I made my nock inserts out of brass to add weight to the rear of my arrow . I wanted a heavier arrow than a 400 gr . Mine. Weigh 474 gr with 100 gr broadhead . I’m shootings in the upper 370s to mid 380s . Which is plenty fast . The extra 72 gr should be a lot easier on my bow too . My best friend. Is real good working on bows , he is going to put a firenock rest on it for me , and put a THREDZ string set on it for me . He works for them and they make an awesome set of strings . . Gosh I sure do love this bow .
