I am stuck between Ravin and Ten Point. I have been a PSE bow guy for years, but now shoulder problems are making me switch over to the sideways bows. Looking at the R10 or R20 in the Ravin line and Viper S400 or Wicked Ridge NXT400 from Ten Point. Anyone have pros or cons on these models?

I have two r10’s. They shoot great and are priced decent also. I’m not sure exactly what they chrono but the speed dials ended up at 420 on both. The ten points are probably real good also

Can you decock the R10, or do you have to shoot it?

Shooting one of the new 400 Ten Points and like a few others with shoulder problem. Yes you can uncock it. It can be cocked and uncocked once your up in the tree. Love mine and it is pretty quite for a crossbow and fast. Bough a full set up Bow, arrows and carrying case not heap by no means but well worth it for me.
Best of luck to you on what ever you get.🦌

I have a Tenpoint Stealth NXT and a Tenpoint Vengent S440. The NXT has to be fired to decock but is a great crossbow. It shoots 445 grain arrows chronograph at 385 FPS with 143 lbs/KE. The Vengent shoots a 445 grain arrow at 415 FPS with 166 lbs/KE and can be decocked without firing. The bigger question is how much do you want to spend.

Ravin is a good company but I personally like Tenpoint for their customer service and the amount of time they have been around. I have not had any issues with either bow. And I will say yes you may be able to hit a target at 100 yards with a Ravin or one like my Vengent but there is no way I take that shot. I keep them 50nor closer. The reason I like them has fast has they are but keep my shots limited in range is it helps with string jump/drop or movement. They just don't have has much reaction time. Best of luck but I think the bigger question would be money. Honestly you should probably keep it no higher than $1500.00 you can get all you need for that price. Good luck

I wound up getting the R10 and am very happy. It was dead on out of the box. I am going to work on checking the calibration in the next couple of days, but it looks like all I need now is a deer in front of me.
