When it comes to Horton arrows, there’s a wide variety to choose from, and there’s sure to be something that meets a hunter’s every need and preference. Each collection in the Horton arrows line comes in both aluminum and carbon shafts. As there have been longstanding debates about which arrows are better – aluminum or carbon – customers would have the chance to discover firsthand which of the two is more to their liking.
In general, there are three groups in Horton’s arrow collection: Lightning Strike, Bone Collector, and Bone Crusher. While every Horton arrow is engineered to provide accuracy, speed, and excellent over-all performance, each group has its own characteristics that meet a hunter’s specifications. The Bone Crusher collection is designed more for hunting bigger prey. The Bone Collector is used by more experienced shooters, as it is designed for excellent accuracy. The Lightning Strike, on the other hand, is purported to bring out stellar performance in archers of different skill levels.
In addition to the three main collections, Horton Crossbows has also come up with an arrow that is guaranteed to carve a niche for itself: the de-cocking arrow, a virtually indestructible arrow designed to be a safe, painless way of de-cocking your crossbow. Traditionally, de-cocking a crossbow meant firing an arrow into the ground or nearby target, which is potentially dangerous since an arrow could shatter if it hits harder objects such as rocks, causing injury to people nearby. But the Horton’s fiberglass de-cocking arrow with its blunt tip makes it shatter-proof and easily recoverable from the ground or from a target.
On the subject of shooting at targets, arrows can be customized with lighted nocks. These nocks are string-activated, and battery-powered lights help hunters in locating the targets that they hit, or finding arrows that were misfired. They come in different colors, so a hunter has a choice among red, green, and orange lighted nocks.
