Reflex Bighorn

I am getting back into bow hunting after many years off
I am looking at the reflex bighorn complete set up for $425
I have a very short draw 25" so my options are few in my price range this felt very comfortable & balanced but know nothing about Refex bows anyone used or know anything about these bows?

Thanks in advance

I use a Reflex Highlander and I gotta tell you, I'm extremely happy with my Bow and I'm confident you'll be satisfied with a Reflex Bow too.
All hunters have different tastes and features they look for when choosing a bow But all of them will tell you the one thing that's most improtant is how the Bow Feels to "YOU", You're the one using it, and again all bowhunters agree that the major Bows today will all perform well above the manufacturers standards so any bow you choose is going to be a good choice. Good Luck to you.

e-bay you gotta love it! I think Bruce has stock in Reflex....... There are several great bows out there, Mathews, Mathews, oh and did I say Mathews. Hoyt is also a good bow I think. Have you made the big decision, carbon/aluminum? I made the switch to carbon couple of years ago and really like them. All kidding aside, your Reflex is a good bow and you'll like it. I have looked at Bowtech bows lately and like what I see. Good luck.

I'm shooting Easton Axis ST 400's in realtree camo with 2" vanes out of a Mathews Q2XL. My bow draws 28.5" @ 58# so Its not a speed demon but works well with these arrows. Good to see you're using a pro shop.
