I reviewed the Raptor bow before. It is (was) a rubber powered bow that shoots steel balls, quite fast actually - almost 150 m/s (about 480 fps) with a 10 mm steel ball.

But the rubber was a weakness - there is wear on it, and also there is the issue of the temperature dependency. So the designers at Shoottech converted it to composite limbs, making it the world's one and only steel ball shooting compound bow!

It is adjustable between 50 and 80 pounds of a draw force, and truly accurate. The peep sights are great.

I think it is amazing how they mastered the secret of making a bow that can handle "arrows" (should have said "projectiles") weighing under four grams... but it works.

Don't know it yet, haven't done any tests. But I think this bow is a BB specialist and will give mediocre results when you shoot arrows.

It is just great that I can practice archery using cheapo steel balls... arrows are expensive, and it takes so much time to retrieve them, especially at longer distances.

where can i buy one!? i've been looking for one that uses limb strength instead of rubber bands, and i've been trying to find the raptor pro and/or the raptor x pro
