Reflex Bows

9 posts in this topic

i was looking at a few new bows and i was thinking that the reflex super slam bow looked pretty nice. i was wondering if you guys have ever heard anything about them or have shot them. how do they compare to some of the others?

Thanks

Reflex bows are the "discount" line made by Hoyt. I've always heard they are great bows and I personally are considering one when I decide to retire my old Darton.

Don't worry about the "discount" thing as all the major lines ahve them. Mathews makes Mission bows, Hoyt has Reflex and Bowtech makes Diamond. All are great. The best thing to do is shoot as many as you can to find the one that fits you best.

fishhead20,

Both my husband and I shot Reflex bows for a couple of years. They were great bows and I have absolutely no complaints. We switched to Hoyt only because my husband got on their shooting team. His SuperSlam is currently for sale, I sold my Grizzly this past winter. The SuperSlam is an awesome looking bow, with the hoof prints in it. If you decide to get one, I don't think you will be disappointed at all. And you won't have to fork out tons of money for one! Good luck.

I think they're a great value - not just Reflex but also the Diamonds lookin like the Missions as well. I won't classify them as 'discount', typically they are just a year or so behind in technology. I think thats great cuz you can wait to see what pans out and what doesn't then get it at a good price.

I wasn't quite sure how to clarify the them...discount sounded close.

Its more of a price-point thing.

I've been shooting a Reflex Grizzley for a couple years now and I have been very happy with it. It would be tough to find a nicer bow in that price range. It may collect a little dust this year though, I just finished sighting in my new Diamond Black Ice. smile.gif

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
