Hot Gear: Horton’s Upgraded Crossbow Packages, Dedd Sled 50

Following up on its successful 2015 launch, Horton Crossbow Innovations responded to customer feedback this year by introducing upgraded crossbow package options for its two-bow lineup, and a new Dedd Sled 50™ cocking mechanism.

The Horton Storm RDX is a reverse draw bow with a trim profile and lethal power. Reducing vibration is key to diminishing sound. As such, don't forget to add noise dampeners to a wide variety of the crossbow's components, such as the foot stirrup and bolt-retention spring.

Horton’s 165-pound reverse-draw Storm RDX™, winner of the 2015 Outdoor Life and Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Awards, and the 175-pound Legend Ultra Lite™, are now available with an upgraded package that features a lighted TenPoint 3x Pro-View 2™ Scope.

The new Storm packages will retail at $1,049 with the Dedd Sled 50 manual cocking mechanism and at $1,249 with the ACUdraw™ automated cocking mechanism. The new Legend packages will retail at $749 with no cocking mechanism, $849 with the ACUdraw 50™ cocking mechanism, and $949 with the ACUdraw cocking mechanism.

The new, lightweight Dedd Sled 50 is made from PolyOne™ OnForce™ Long Glass Fiber Nylon and reduces the crossbow’s draw weight by 50 percent.

“While the launch of the new Horton brand last year was more successful than we could have ever imagined, our customers, nevertheless, clearly voiced their desire for a lighted scope option and a 50% reduction Dedd Sled,” said Rick Bednar, Chairman and CEO of Horton Crossbow Innovations. “As always, we listened and added these options for 2016 as we continue working diligently to build the Horton legacy.”

Horton is 100 percent USA owned and operated. All Horton crossbows are designed and manufactured by TenPoint Crossbow Technologies® in Mogadore, Ohio.
