    Default Reflex Bighorn Intruder?

    I have been away from shooting and hunting for about 12 years now. My son (9) got a bow for Christmas and his prodding has got me interested again. I found a Reflex Bighorn Intruder for sale. The bow is in great shape, light weight and seemed very smooth. 60-70lb draw with what felt like around 70 to 75% let off. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these bows? Any good points? Bad points? Would like to get a good bow but cant spend a fortune.
    Thanks in advance

    I have absolutely no idea about this bow, but someone should be along shortly to give you some assistence.

    If you are just looking to do some backyard targets with your son for now and it feels good for you then it probably is just fine.

    Don't know much about the Bighorn, but Hoyt makes Reflex. Overall Reflex bows are not bad bows and should be good for hunting and recreational shooting.

    Since you have been away for 12 years, I would recommend going to a pro-shop trying out other bows and make sure you are properly fitted for the bow.

    A friends of mine has one and I agree the draw curve is very nice, it's not a speed bow but I could definitely be satisfied have one as my hunting bow.

    No need to be spiteful or be a grenade.

    I was just trying to be friendly and pass on the lessons of "netiquette" that all of us got taught when we first started posting stuff online. I appreciated it when I was told...guess I'm not too perfect to accept a hand every now and again.

    So, as an open question to all (me asking for help), is "number of arrows" the standard measurement for how much practice is the right amount...or is it another brag stat (e.g.: I pull a 110# draw weight sitting in an outhouse and shoot a huge overdraw with 6" arrows that goe 390 fps with 1/2" super vanes.)

    It's just one of the sucky shortfalls of communicating by typed text. You can't really convey voice tone or anything.

    More than half of communication is non-verbal (i.e. not about the words you use)...but here it's 100% verbal.

    Just have fun, consider that most people here whose posts seem jerky are usually either trying to be funny, misunderstanding what they read, or taking the piss out of someone else. Except Slippy...he's just jerky.

    Default thank you

    sorry .thank you j.c. from l.a. i guess i know a little more about hunting than computer manners .out in the woods i dont think the deer,hogs care about BIG letters or small letters and i thought that hunting and bow shooting was what was important on this forum and if you read my post you will see that what was written was nice and polite.

    no, I didn't hunt at all this past year. I've been getting over a bad ankle break.
