Horton Fury

Has anyone shot the fury yet? What are your thoughts on it? How do you think it compares to a ten point stealth or turbo on speed,noise and vibration if loaded with a heavy arrow like an easton full metal jacket? Also what are your thoughts on full metal jackets? Thanks.

Re: Horton Fury

I shot it at the outdoors and sports expo here in Erie this past spring. NICE BOW! My old sales rep was there for my old store and I already knew they were going to have one there so I couldn't wait to shoot it. Not as quiet as the slower Hortons but it's also MUCH FASTER too! Very smooth with almost zero recoil and they did a good job of canceling out most of the vibration. As usual, excellent Horton trigger.

Re: Horton Fury

I tried to shoot one at the ATA show. They told me they were having an issue with the barrel to trigger junction. They were getting too much flex in that area and needed to fix it. I didn't get to shoot the bow. They estimated that it would be in production beginning of June.

Re: Horton Fury

Can't speak to the Fury but I can with the Full Metal Jackets. Been shooting them alot lately and if one likes a heavy arrow, as I do, then they are a great choice. Very stiff and consistant with great flight downrange as they hold their momentum well.

With the aluminum on the outside, pulling from targets is much easier than carbons as well. A great plus for me.

Gene, you have my attention with these arrows. I use the older GT2 arrows and they were heavier and thicker than the newer ones. Mine were the older USA made ones. These FMJ`s may be a great replacement once the old ones are used up. Your thoughts?

Re: Horton Fury

The Gold Tip Laser III is very similar to the old Laser II's. Might be something you want to consider.

On the Easton FMJ's. I found they slow most bows down alot. Great for the really fast crossbows, but not so good for the slower ones. Very easy to pull from foam targets. They penetrate very well and carry momentum really good downrange. A good looking arrow too. I like the diamond plate pattern. Yardage estimation becomes critical with these, because of the weight. That is true with any archery equipment though.

Re: Horton Fury

Good point Mike!! I use a Excal Exocet 200, old GT2 arrows and WASPS Boss SST 100 heads. Great combo. Are the newer GT 3`s made in the USA again? Thanks.

With your Exocet, Jack, the FMJ are really gonna slow it down. Not a problem as you like to shoot close. Past 30 yards they are gonna really drop.

Re: Horton Fury

Honestly, I' m not exactly sure where they are currently made. I know they were made in Mexico for a while. Most all of them are built and wrapped in the U.S. and then sent offshore to begin the curing process.
