I had an sold a scorpyd, ten point, and wicked ridge. Never owned a ravin or mission but they look nice.

Downside to the ravin is you need to replace strings and cables every 12 months due to the high draw weight and extreme string tension. $100 for cables/strings + labor unless you have your own bow press. The scorpyd and mission allows you to change without a press

Excalibur
simple and easy. Replace your own string in about 2 min.
Very accurate.

In 10 years I have never needed to restring my compound x bow or work on it. Never had to sight it in but once. If I had to work on it in the field I would not have a box of parts in the field with me anyway. So not a selling point for me. A x bow at 250 fps will shoot. Through a deer. But faster shoots flatter making range estimates les critical and further shots easier. Also the Excalibur are very wide. They look cool but for me a narrower more compact and much faster compound is the better choice.

Also my use is primarily for my kids so smaller, lighter and faster is more important than if it were just for me.
