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

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
