Other than that, the prototype they were showing was built and finished better than anything I've ever seen from Horton. I would say the build quality is exceptional. I definitely don't like the 17" arrow and resultant light weight weight/low KE. I've always lost some accuracy with these shorty arrows compared to 20 and 22 inchers. I guess there's nothing to keep one from shooting a 20 inch arrow in it. Bottom line for me will be after I shoot it a little. Hope to do that once they become available.
you are right Guide Girl, for me width and weight are ones of the most important factor for buy a crossbow. Walk with a crossbow in the mountains of Peru (11000 -16500 feet above the level sea) or in the rain forest is a big problem.Guide Girl said:I saw it and was very surprised at the new design. It looks WICKED! What I am waiting to experience, is the lower noise factor, due to the new design. I wanna shoot it! If it's more silent, SOLD! Can you imagine the difference in width as well walking through the woods? Awesome. No more, or rather, not as many times hanging up on on vegetation. Plus, no camera slaps from the wide limbs while self filming.(Big problem with the Barnett Quad 400) Maybe the bow and the camera can share the same window in a pop up blind.
If it's more silent, you know how many hogs I can take out at one time then while doing "hog removal" for ranches around here? Watch out for me Piggys! Mama has a new surprise for you.

Urban Legend said:Thanks for the update, Hoss. Again, I love the Horton line of bows and wasn't trying to stir things up. I just didn't know. With new technology comes questions. Thats all I was doing, asking questions.
