Game changer, new Horton RDX

As some know, the Horton name was bought by TenPoint Crossbows along with some equipment. Here is the brand new reverse draw Horton RDX that will debut tomorrow at the ATA. 370 fps, 10 inches cocked, adjustable buttstock, and a new brush arrow retention device instead of the typical twangy spring on most crossbows. $999 MSRP which is under what many thought this bow would come in at.

I have a feeling they will sell like hotcakes. I like the arrow retention idea. That is a source of alot of noise in most crossbows.

Yep. You can see the brushes in the second picture I posted.

Without the Acudraw, some street prices are coming in around $800. That is way less than many expected and close to half of what Scorpyd are selling for.

Yep. I think staying south of $1,000 for an RDT it will sell like crazy. I think most assumed that since it was Tenpoint it would be well north of the $1,000 mark.

I think my 2 year old Parker may be for sale soon. Ha! That's a sweet x-bow. Wow!

William will you teach me how to write, Cassius will you show me how to fight.

Dpms, in your opinion, does Acudraw offer any advantages other than ease of cocking, or is it simply a cocking mechanism? Tenpoint seems to claim the consistent cocking of it adds to accuracy, which I find hard to believe.
