I honestly really like the Valor in this case, it seems to operate a little smoother than the Ritual 30. I really really like the Ritual 33 and 35 but for a short bow I think the Valor is the winner. With that said, I know my local bow shop is giving a great deal on both of these (because of the virus shutdown) but they are really looking to dump the ritual 30's they have, you might find a better deal on a R30 than a Valor, you really cant go wrong with either I just prefer the valor in this case.
I've shot both. the letoff and let down on the Ritual 30 is by far superior to the Valor. Went to buy a valor because of price and then shot the ritual. No comparison. Also check ebay! bought a floor model Ritual 30 back in January 2020 brand new $450.
