Video: The Most Compact, Fastest Crossbow on the Market?

When it's cocked, the Ravin R15 crossbow measures a mere 6 inches wide from axle to axle, yet it launches a 400-grain arrow at 425 fps. The secret is an innovative cable-management design called HeliCoil, coupled with a flight system that virtually eliminates friction imposed on the string and arrow by the rail.
