I am adding CCD build mods from Farm Deer for both my Xbows. I am faced with the challenge I will not be able to use my HHA Optimizer. Seems the only option I have is to add the Ravin Jackplate. I am willing to do this because of the CCD benefit and I absolutely like my Barnett TS370. That is such an underrated Xbow once you add a bit of TLC (not much).

For those that have Ravin Jackplate are you satisfied with the accuracy to the yard? I know my HHA Optimizer is flat out accurate to the yard to at least 83 yards. That is my accuracy bench mark and like to know how the Ravin compares.

I do have a chrono device to give me accurate FPS reading to accurately tape number for the jackplate.

Are there any other elevator options similar to the Ravin Jackplate (rearward dial)?

I think you should contact Burky and see if he can install one of his custom JPs to your bow. Probably be cheaper than buying a new Ravin JP even with shipping the bow and all he might need is your trigger box.

Robert, PM sent to Burky on custom built elevator suggestion. Farm Deer, not sure you are looking into this. If so let me know.

I figured you had seen the ones he has been putting on the Scorpys he has been fixing for people Tom. I have not seen one in person but I am very impressed by what I have seen. He can explain it to you a heck of a lot better that I can. :)

If you're in a hurry for the jackplate,due to Burky's accident,he may be out of service for a while yet! If he can build one for your bow,he would only need the trigger box,at least that's all he needed for mine.....
I have both the Ravin jack plate and Tim's build! Both work great,but no tapes for Tim's,you will have to mark the dial yourself.

It is very easy to make a homemade tape.
Yes it is,but I choose to just use glow in the dark dots myself. I can fill in the blanks with a little good ole fashioned "Kentucky windage".when needed. Besides,a fast bow won't be off much with only a few yards difference at hunting ranges!
