Re: xbow recomendation
Falls, I've not heard that. Our bows are older 7-5 years with lots of use. No problems, and Horton has had a great reputation.Mine basically shoots dead on out to 35 yards the way it is sighted in with the red dot Truglo.
A friend has the lowest cost Horton (forget the model) he is on his 5 deer with it. He got a 170+ point buck, just fantastic. no problems.
The newer models have a new great pull trigger, like a rifle. mine is the older style, the factory said I could get a new style for $35, but this is fine for me. I have the graphite rails and they really requir no lube.
Like most x-bows the Hrorton is a compound x-bow. I did heare that the straight x-bows (not compounds) are hard to draw. I can draw mine in my tree stand, and usually do after taking a shot before I get down. that would be a consideration. I had Open heart surgery and have a 12 inch scar on my chest, so I can't just hold to my ribs and draw back, I use the loop on the bow portion.
good luck Falls with the 175.
