has any one used bushnell 3" refelctor? or any small reflecting telescopes? Is it good enough?

I heard small reflectors less than 4" is not as good as refractors of similar size...?

I have been told this is true. The small reflectors lose too much light due to the secondary mirror and the advantages over lenses are incremental with size therefore these are small at such small diameters
