Ravin has won the race to achieve speeds of 500 fps with its new R500E crossbow, featuring the proprietary HexCoil cam system. Measuring just 3.6 inches axle to axle when cocked, or 7.6 inches uncocked, this 9.9-pound compact bow can be cocked manually or via a detachable electric motor. It comes equipped with Ravin’s 100-yard Illuminated 550 FPS Scope, a quiver and six arrows.
