Looking at the Ten point Titan SS against the Horton Vortec RDX. Want to know if anyone has any experience with any or maybe both of these crossbows. Need to upgrade as to my garbage Barnet has the limps splitting in multiple spots after only 3 years. Barnetts customer service is pathetic. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Leaning towards the Horton because of the smaller diameter while in the cocked position.

My first crossbow was a lower end Horton named the Yukon. It shot well at 20 yards but accuracy suffered beyond this distance. The Yukon was sold and I bought a second hand PSE Copperhead for a very good price. I killed two deer with two shots at a a distance of about 25 yards. I sold the Copperhead and bought my buddy's Ten Point for a fair price. That was 8 years ago. This Ten Point is superior in accuracy, velocity, and fit & finish. But new Ten Point crossbows are quite spendy indeed. I suggest buying a second hand Ten Point or a new Wicked Ridge model. Wicked Ridge is engineered and built by Ten Point but pricing is lower.

I handled and shot the new PSE models at the big Sportsman's Show in Harrisburg last February. Great accuracy for a fair price.

Hoping this is helpful.

Horton is now under the TenPoint umbrella. Look at the Horton line as a bridge between the Wicked Ridge and TenPoint models. Customer service and manufacturing standards are some of the best in the industry. I currently have a Horton Vortec and had the Horton Storm last year. Have had 6 different TenPoint models over the past.

Either bow is great at their price points. The reverse draw Vortec will be a little harder on the center serving than the Titan, but it is extremely compact and narrow.

I have no problems recommending either.
