Does anybody know where I can find a Horton Vision 175 crossbow?

Used?? I rarely see um for sale. It was tough to buy them new when they finally hit the streets. Horton seems to have caught up to demand as of late, though.

I got one a few months ago direct from the company. Very quiet and very accurate. Only drawback I can see is that they're a little bit of a pain to set because string comes back at such a steep angle. Other than that, probably the best crossbow on the market for the price.

Ours are $699.00 Very quiet as mentioned. The steep string angle will wear servings faster than most bows out there. They do have provisions for re-stringing, no bow press is needed. It's a good idea to get a spare string so that you have one ready at all times.

I think Horton is also using custom ViperX strings on the Visions now? This will surely help concerns with string wear.

They are using the quality strings now and it helps some. Most of the ones I'm seeing, are getting about 75-150 shots on thier servings. (.030 Halo serving)
I'm wondering if anyone has tried Angel Majesty servings on any of these bows?

How do you cock them? Use of a cocking string? I bet they are balanced a lot better than traditional xbows!

Just bought the Vision package myself for $649.00!! Best crossbow for the money by far!! Anyone want to buy a Tornado?
As far as having to replace the string after 75-100 shots, I have well over 100 shots thru mine and the string is just fine.
