How much does the air raid weigh? Seems to be impossible information to find.Alphamax. Between the two, theres really no comparison. Balance, draw cycle, quietness, and feel of the shot all go to the AM. Of course, youre asking a subjective question, so your results may vary. My local shop cant keep an Alphamax in stock, but has had the same Air Raid hanging up for a while if that suggests anything.
