Tenpoint Viper S400: Cons
The main con of the Viper S400 is the price tag. I am not calling it over expensive. In that price range, there are better crossbows for you to purchase. Which makes it a bit hard to suggest it over Ravin R20. But if you are looking for a short crossbow that can give the Ravin R20 a good run for its money, then Viper S400 is a solid choice.
Ravin R20 Crossbow: Cons
Ravin crossbows share a universal con. That is the terrible crossbow scope. For the money you are paying, you won’t get a scope that is worth the price. The main upgrade on the Ravin R20 should be a far better scope. This crossbow scope is not capable of keeping up with the Ravin R20.
