horton x bows

im thinking of using my x mas bonus for a crossbow this year. i really like the fury and havac and the rlt limbs. i was told by the sales guy at cabelas that those bows will be the bows that put horton outa business! i said i havent heard much from online about many issues and he wanted to bet me $. i laughed and said i would think on it . im not buying there anyhow ill look around . so are these x bows ok or should i wait . i like the balance and the small mass of these bows over the rest. all input appreciated .

Re: horton x bows

Personally I would look at either a Tenpoint/Wicked Ridge line or Excalibur. They both have great customer service and a quality product. Contact Arrowhead on here. He will treat you right!

Re: horton x bows

Horton Visions are still available and they have been solid performers over the past few years. The newer Havocs and Furys have had some trigger issues out of the gate.

I love the reverse draw concept and I expect most manufactures will eventually have a few in the lineups with time.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: horton x bows

I have a Horton Tacoma (2nd crossbow I owned), and I like it. I don't think Horton still makes them. It's simple but effective. After all the headaches I had with my first Barnett, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Horton.

I wouldn't listen too much to the sales guy at Cabelas, sounds like he's pushing another brand & has his own agenda.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

Re: horton x bows

Cold Creek Road, If you went to the Cabelas in Hamburg Pa. You must have talked to the same sales person I did. I got the same story reguarding the new Horton bows. I own a Horton Vision, and was interested in the newer Havoc and Fury. This year I killed the biggest 8pt. of my 50 years of hunting in Pa. using the Vision.

Re: horton x bows

I have the Fury and it has performed great, no trigger issues or anything else except the cocking sled they sent was burred, but they resolved that issue quick

Re: horton x bows

Check out the Barnett Vengence too. The RDT bows are all copies of the Scorypd and the Barnett looks like it could pass as an original. I spent a few days shooting one and I liked it alot.
