Ravin R10 vs Tenpoint Turbo M1: The Mid-Rangers

Ravin doesn’t make that many mid-range crossbows. When they made the Ravin R10, it took everyone by surprise for sure.

People weren’t expecting such a good mid-range crossbow from Ravin. That’s why most other brand tried to dethrone Ravin from this spot and make their own spot. Tenpoint is known for their rivalry against Ravin crossbows. The Tenpoint Turbo M1 is a direct competitor to the Ravin R10. Which one is better among them? We will find that out soon enough.

  • Ravin R10 is more powerful.
  • Turbo M1 is lighter.
  • Ravin R10 is more compact.

Those are the key differences between the Ravin vs Tenpoint turbo m1. Lets find out advantages & disadvantages.

Ravin R10 Advantages

Even though the Turbo M1 supposed to be a competitor to the Ravin R10, it doesn’t do that good of a job there. Ravin R10 clearly outperforms the M1 by miles. I will even go as far as to say Turbo M1 shouldn’t even be compared with the Ravin R10.

Ravin R10 is simply the better crossbow both on paper an on-field. It’s not that hard to judge it when we have seen countless reviews of he Ravin R10.

Tenpoint Turbo M1 Advantages

Tenpoint Turbo M1 is a good crossbow if we don’t consider it as the competition of the Ravin R10. It slowly become worse when you start considering the price of the crossbow and the related crossbows.

I was supposed to give you reasons to choose the crossbow here, right? I will give Tenpoint credit for trying at least. If the cranking device was pre-installed and not separate purchase, then the Tenpoint Turbo M1 would have been a good buy.

Ravin R10: Cons

The key problem with the Ravin R10 was the scope. The included cope is not good. It’s not suitable for such a powerful crossbow. The crossbow crosshair won’t be able to keep up with the speed of the Ravin R10. The calibration on the crossbow scope is not that good either. You need to recalibrate the scope completely for better performance

Tenpoint Turbo M1: Cons

The main con for the Turbo M1 will be the price tag. Tenpoint got a cheaper crossbow called Vengent that can shoot up to 400 FPS and generate almost the same amount of kinetic energy. That crossbow costs same or lesser than Turbo m1. My point is, Turbo M1 is not the correct competition for the Ravin R10.

Ravin R10 vs Tenpoint Turbo M1 Summary
