New Horton Storm RDX

Hello,

Just purchased a new Storm RDX. My local bow shop really helped me out by letting me take the bow home and shoot it to make sure it was what I wanted. I wanted a flat shooting bow that allowed me to shoot to 40 yrds with only 2 crosshairs and not have to aim a foot high or low. This bow fits the bill. The only negative is the trigger. Can't understand why ten point didn't include a better trigger. I shot a wicked ridge G3 and it's trigger is light years better than the storm. I hope if ten point upgrades the trigger down the road it can be retro fitted into my bow. I used the gold tip 425 arrows with 100gr and 125gr field points and both shot almost the same. At 40 yards they are an inche different.

I am amazed at how good the bow handles. It is really like holding a rifle. Considering putting on the Hawke XB1 1.5-532 SR scope to dial it in even better.

Can't wait to try it out in the second season!!!!

Have a nice Christmas and New Year!!!!

Congrats on the new bow. Sometimes the trigger will get better after shooting a little.

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

Re: New Horton Storm RDX

Awsome!! Yes, maybe the trigger will get better with some shooting. Is it stiff and/or a lot of creep or?

If you don't mind voiding your warranty, Trigger Tech will be introducing a drop in trigger for Horton in 2016. I have one installed on my Excalibur. These triggers are truly state of the art target triggers. Very popular among the crossbow crowd that demands better triggers.

Re: New Horton Storm RDX

I'll keep this in mind. I did apply some oil to the trigger and it smoothed out some, but still really long pull.
