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

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
