Default Hoyt RX3 vs Helix

Iv priced out both, and the RX3 is $600 more than the Helix. From what I see the RX3 is 0.4lb lighter, and has just slightly less vibration. Is their any other difference that warrants $600 price hike?

That's interesting. Can you notice the Helix extra weight?

The Helix is a very nice bow, 100% on par with any other manufacturers flag ship offerings. It draws nicely, holds fantastic and is quiet and has very little hand shock and vibration. I was torn between an RX3 and a Helix as well, but when I got a chance to shoot the RX3 Turbo, my mind was made up. I bought the Turbo, but I would not hesitate for a second to get a Helix!

If you hunt late season, in the cold, the Carbon is worth the extra $$$$.
Good luck to you and show us some pics of the new ride.

shot them both. Preferred and bought the RX3. liked the back wall better and the draw cycle of the RX3. Vibration was about the same - minimal to none

The RX-3 and the Helix wear the exact same cam. Nice draw cycle though.

Check out John Dudleyís Helic build on YouTube. He just took a bear with it and swears by that bow
