Horton Crossbow Innovations’ 2016 crossbows, the Storm RDX and Legend Ultra Lite, both come with three carbon arrows each, detachable three-arrow quivers and scopes with varying specifications. Horton constructs the Legend Ultra Lite from carbon-injected polymer weighing 6.8 pounds and the Storm RDX from stainless steel and lightweight aluminum weighing 8.2 pounds.Continue Reading
The Legend Ultra Lite requires 175 pounds of force to cock and lock arrows, and the Storm RDX requires 165 pounds of force. This draw weight is one of many factors that contribute to the velocity of the arrow. Fully cocked, the Storm RDX fires arrows at the speed of 370 feet per second, and the Legend Ultra Lite fires at a speed of 330 feet per second.
Customers can choose either model with a standard 4-inch-by-32-millimeter multi-line scope or upgrade to a 3x pro-view scope with the premium package. Both crossbows ship mostly assembled, with the scope, string stop block and quiver included separately. These parts require a Phillips screwdriver to attach to the main assembly. Fully assembled, the Legend Ultra Lite measures 35.5 inches long and 21.6 inches wide uncocked, and the Storm RDX measures 35.25 inches long and 15.5 inches wide uncocked. When cocked, the Legend Ultra light measures 18.375 inches wide, and the Storm RDX measures 10 inches.Learn more about Outdoor Adventure
