Default My New Halon 6

Well the new weapon came in and I got it setup today at CCR. Halon 6 70#. First shot through paper was a bullet hole. And the first group after sighting-in had all arrows touching. That'll do. That'll do. Thanks to CCR tech Kyle for being amazing as always.

No will have to do that next trip. Was in a bit of a hurry when I picked it up. Need to chrono with a few different arrows and get a true draw weight and draw length on it.

I'm loving everything about them except the weight which for our style of hunting could be a pain in the butt. I'm really leaning towards either that or the htx at the moment.

The weight is there but IMHO a wash with accessories. It's 10 ounces heavier than my Chill R. I don't use a bow quiver and I have a sling for long walks etc. I don't see it being a problem.

I spent an hour at WHA setting mine up . . . . hope to hunt right after xmas with my brother in law.

only shot enough to get a bullet hole and the peep and kisser set.

Woke up saturday morning to shoot it in.

First three shots at center low 5" and left 2" all three arrows touching
Second three shots 2" low and left 2" all three arrows touching
Third three shots left 2" all touching
Fourth slight adjustment to center of the ring

Went back to start shooting for practice and first arrow I hear a pop. Once I compose myself I start looking for the arrow to make sure there isn't someone dead i find it a few yards directly to my right with a busted nock. Either I didn't clip the arrow on fully or the nock fell apart (which is more likely)

So my first halon, which was shooting lights out died in 30 minutes of it's first shooting session!

I guess it depends on what you call a long walk!

on a big mountain hunt we cover 40 miles minimum over a 4 or 5 day hunt in some rough country chasing sambar or in NZ chasing tahr, when you get to something like that ounces matter.

That's a bummer. I bet you clipped that nock with one of the other arrows since you said they were touching after each 3 shot group.

True no doubt. Ounces are pounds and pounds are pain. I wish I had somewhere to hunt that I could test the pain lol.

There's a lot of land over here you can hunt!

hard work particularly on elusive sambar but we don't have the altitude you guys do so at least there's no altitude sickness.

Bare shafts and fletched shafts within 2" @ 20 yards. Had a lot of coffee so the disparity was probably me.

Did it damage the bow, other than a busted string? I can't see the limbs or cams well enough in the picture to see if they suffered damage. If they were damaged are they covered under warranty?

Bows a tack driver. My favorite bow since the z7. Excellent speed without destroying the draw cycle.

No damage to the bow the string burst I'm sure that saved the cams. No warranty it was my fault so I paid for the new strings. I've a few hundred arrows through it since then.

I'll agree with tack driver. Also it's so quiet it's spooky.

That's an Axcel. Shawn shoots a slider like I do. I shoot the MBG Ambush Ascend. Both work the same way.

Deciding what to replace the Apex Covert on my Halon. Will definitely be a slider but which one?? SH Father? MBG? Axcel? React One Pro? Crisis of indecision!!!

Lol. I like the MBG because the dial doesn't interfere with a quiver and the tape faces me not to the side. Sword and Surelock make good ones also.

Correct. I had the mbg and it's great just want an 1.5 house bs 1.75.

The trophy ridge isn't as good and it's bulky.

I'd stick with the mbg, spott hog or the accutouch

custom from the mathews shop. when i started shooting mathews the thing I hated was the big bulky wood grip.

now a half dozen bows later i've found the only thing is hate more is the focus grip. This years grip is flat which i liked better but while i change bows yearly there are certain things I don't like changing and that what i feel in my hand, my release and my site.

I changed my site last year and I've been very tempted to go back to the sword centurion that I shot for 6 years.

I've had a Reflex Rampage for a year, but hauling that back and holding that out was just to much to be honest. Went to Fisherman's Warehouse in Central Ohio and shot the HTX and the Halon 6. I came with the full intent on buying the HTX.

Little more hump little harder stop into the wall but much smoother then I thought with a dual cam. What I think makes this different it's not as fast as others but maintains the smooth draw cycle.

that said back into the wall and it's locked, I have a real hard time finding the sweet spot on let down it goes from nothing to yanking on it pretty quick.

Those are some sweet looking rigs! I was tempted to shoot one, but I'm still fond of my HTR that's less than a year old. Maybe next year!

I shot my HTR and the halon side by side yesterday and I really like the halon. I sure did kill a lot of deer and a couple of monsters with my HTR so it's definitely a shooter

Fourth slight adjustment to center of the ring

Went back to start shooting for practice and first arrow I hear a pop. Once I compose myself I start looking for the arrow to make sure there isn't someone dead i find it a few yards directly to my right with a busted nock. Either I didn't clip the arrow on fully or the nock fell apart (which is more likely)

So my first halon, which was shooting lights out died in 30 minutes of it's first shooting session!
I think i am going to check my nocks after i flex my arrows from now on, sounds like its worth an extra 2 seconds. Sorry about the bad luck.

I have had a Halon 6 tactical on order since the week before thanksgiving and I still have not received it. Needless to say I am getting a little impatience now.

I have an HTX, but shot a Halon6 today and that extra speed is addicting. Makes me consider selling my HTX and getting a Halon, but wonder if I will give up some accuracy. I have had a lot of shoulder surgery so after a 6 year span of never touching a bow I tried a synergy and a htx because no halons around at that time (christmas) and went with the htx. Now shooting the halon today...Im 2nd guessing myself. I was told to stay away from the speed bows due to the draw, but the halon didnt seem that bad...but that was only about a dozen shots.
