They debuted the RDT 165 at the ATA show. Shoots a 400 grain arrow at 425fps. Saw a pic of it, supposed to retail for $1300 but looks big and heavy. Their RDT 125 which debuted last year is moving alot of units with its reverse limb technology and fast speeds.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
I spent a good deal of time at the Scorpyd booth yesterday. I had some good conversation with one of his reps and talked briefly with Jim Kempf. All a great bunch of people. It looks like we will be offering the Scorpyd very shortly.
I agree that they looked to be big and heavy, from the pictures I have seen. I can say that they are better in real life, than in the photos. They balance so well that the weight they do have seems to be alot less than it actually is. A very unique crossbow and I hope to have them in the store shortly.
Held a Scorpyd myself yesterday..I was very comfortable and not too heavy. Seemed very well balanced. I will be shooting it as well as a bow by New Breed next week. I may purchase the Scorpyd. Its a hefty price tag IMO, but if the wife and kids get out and use it, its well worth it.
CBB, You are probably referring to the RDT-125 model. It is lighter than the new RDT-165. The speed that the RDT 165 is capable of is amazing. It will launch a 400 grain arrow at 425 f.p.s. but it does come with some added weight. It uses solid limbs where the 125's use a split limb and a new system of attaching the buss cables to the limbs.
I have the Rdt-125 and i have shot alot of different crossbows and it is by far the MOST Quiet! and least TWANG. i never shot one that even comes close to as nice as feel as it has. its not real heavy, i would say just average in weight. you can go wrong with a Scorpyd they sure are nice bows! Good luck to everyone this year! Keep after em!
I stopped in a local shop a few weeks ago with the hopes of shooting one. They had one on the rack, but were waiting on a new cable for it. The shop owner told me he'd been waiting for that cable for 4 months. Needless to say he wasn't real impressed with their customer service. He told me unless they could get their ducks in a row fast, it would be the last one in his shop.
