Re: Ten Point aquires Horton assets

It is gonna be interesting. TenPoint has two markets cornered. The mid to higher end with many of the TenPoint bows and the entry market with the Wicked Ridge.

Where does a new, invigorated Horton lineup fit it? That is anyones guess but knowing TenPoint as I have grown to know them, they have a plan in place and I have no doubt they will succeed.

What would I like to see? The flagship of Horton as of late has been their reverse draw bows. Without them, Horton would have died long ago. I suspect that TenPoint is gonna take a hard look at the reverse draw design and improve them with TenPoint's existing technologies. A RDT bow is what is missing from TenPoint's lineup and there is a market for it.

One thing will be for sure. TenPoint will not bring a bow to market that is not ready. When it comes it will be a good bet that it will live up to the reputation TenPoint had been building.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Ten Point aquires Horton assets

Its going to be interesting to say the least. We'll see how this all plays out. Its something when you hear and read the inside information, that Horton has been struggling for years. What happened to their "Made in USA" slogan...when this claims they imported engineering and offshore parts.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

I was thinking the same thing Moss. Ten Point sure is proud of their crossbows aren't they? Sure they're top notch, but nearly $2000.00 top notch? Can't wait to see what comes out as far as product AND pricing.

Re: Ten Point aquires Horton assets

Good place for a non-user to keep in touch.
I finally figured out that when I retire from archery and bows, I'll retire from archery and price increases.

Crossbows got far too high tech and pricy for me. While I'm rehabbing I'll look at the crossbow prices for any needed motivation.

Re: Ten Point aquires Horton assets

Aren't the founders of Horton and Ten Point related in some way?

80% of Americans believe in miracles. The other 20% have been audited.

Re: Ten Point aquires Horton assets

The founder of Tenpoint is one of the orginal founders of Horton. But he left the company early 90's (I think thats what I read).
