Thoughts on Horton Storm RDX

Right now i'm hunting with a Barnett Quad 400 Extreme. And although it shoots great and pretty fast, I'm planning to trade it in on an Horton Storm RDX, mainly because I love the look of the reverse limbs..... What are your thoughts on the Storms?

Re: Thoughts on Horton Storm RDX

If I was going to buy an reverse limb bow, it would be a storm. Never shot one, but I have handled one. Personally I never like the looks of the reverse draw, but from a practical standpoint they do have some advantages.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

I shot one and decided against it. I thought it was noisy. The axle to axle dimensions are narrow, but the cams are so big, it's not really all that compact. Just my humble opinion, and I seem to be in the minority, most folks who've posted here seem to like them. As for me, I'm liking my Mission MXB-360 a lot.

Re: Thoughts on Horton Storm RDX

I'm in the market next year for a new xbow. I shot the storm and loved it. It does have big cams but its still narrow enough imo. I also like the mission xb360. I have it narrowed to those two. A tad more towards the storm. It's backed by ten point as well. It shoulders nice and is easy to shoot freehand, which is how my last 3 bucks were shot. That was a big factor for me. It is a bit different to shoot off a rest as well. There are a few YouTube videos about it. If you don't pull down on front end it will shoot crappy from a rest.

Re: Thoughts on Horton Storm RDX

I own a Storm RDX and am really pleased with it. I own a Horton Vision 175 also, never sold it and keep it as a back up. When I shoot the Storm at a practice target, off of a rest, out to 30 yards, I can not shoot at the same bulls-eye for fear of hitting my previously shot arrow. At 40 and 50 yards I can shoot at the same bulls-eye, and still come close to hitting my previously shot arrow. I shoot Black Eagle Executioners with a 100 grain target tip. I use 100 grain Spitfire broadheads for hunting and they hit exactly where the target tips hit. This is the best crossbow I have ever owned. The only thing I didn`t like was the quiver attachment. I felt it was cumbersome and lost my quiver in the woods the first time I carried the Storm using a shoulder sling. I had to retrace my steps to find my quiver. After that I redesigned the mount to accept the quiver on my old Vision 175. All is good now. I bought my Storm package from Dave at Wyvern Creations. You can Google that for his contact information. When I purchased my crossbow he included a FREE dozen arrows. I don`t know if he is still doing that or not. Dave is a top notch guy and has a very good understanding of the things he sells. If you have any questions ask him, he has the answers. I plan to shoot the Storm for many years to come.

Re: Thoughts on Horton Storm RDX

I should have mentioned, at the time of purchase, I up graded the scope to the TenPoint Rangemaster Pro. I also purchased the Accudraw. At this point in time I can still manage the rope cocker and use that. I was planning for the future when I bought the Accudraw. One other change I would like to see TenPoint make, would be an ambidextrous safety. You can make it left OR right. However, when in my stand, I like to hold the safety on both sides so I can flip it on or off with less noise. A small thing but important to me.
