Re: Parker or Excalibur
I have both a Parker Cyclone and Excal Vortex. Hunt with them both and killed a deer with each recently.
The Parker will be quieter, more compact and faster. Must be fired to unload it. It will be a bit harder on itself so more maintenance is likely. Need a press to work on it as well.
The Excalibur is bulletproof and lighter up front. It will be louder, slower and a bit more cumbersome. Big plus is that it can be unloaded without having to fire it. Maintenance is a breeze as it can be unstrung without a press.
Warranties are great on both. Good luck with your decision and let us know what you decide and your impressions when you shoot you new bow.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
