Parker Tornado

I got a parker tornado as an early xmas present. I have red hot was+lube, 6 arrows (5 that work i robin hooded one lol) 3 of the parker red hot broadheads, 6 field points, and I believe thats all. I was woundering if there is any accesories that you feel are a need, and or a very useful "want". I want to spend my christmas money on something with a use behind it. Please let me know of anything no matter how simple or small it may be.
Thanks
Kyle

Re: Parker Tornado

Oh man you have a serious problem on your hand...

You'll need a light up sight, light up nocks, drop away rest (a quiet one), a summit tree stand, camo fleece to keep you quiet in the tree, a nice flashlight, a good grunt tube and rattling antlers, gloves, hand muff, a release, a set of leupold or burris field glasses, range finder, a truck to haul all your gear in, and a garage to keep the truck and all your gear in. Good luck!!!

For every one mile of road there are two miles of ditch.

Re: Parker Tornado

The string suppressor kit will help quiet the bow. I like the foldable forearm on the Tornado. The Quake Claw contour sling or Parkers sling is a good addition too. Butler Creek scope caps are nice if you hunt in weather that isn't so nice. Limbsavers for the foot stirrup (the kind that clamp to split limb bows) they help take the ping and vibration out of the foot stirrup. Some custom victory arrows won't hurt either.

I'm not in to crossbows, but if I was, the ONLY person I'd deal with would be Arrowhead.

He has helped so many on here get setup and is one person you can really trust.

Re: Parker Tornado

I ordered and received a 2011 Parker Tornado from Arrowhead and love it. I'm new to crossbows and I'm looking forward to taking it hunting next fall. Shoulder surgery forced me to retire my compound and has kept me out of the woods during archery season for the last 5 years, but now i'm back. I have plenty of time to practice and can't wait to take it into the woods next October.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Arrowhead for the great service and recommending a great product.

Re: Parker Tornado

Quick tip on the Tornado for you. If you are going to shoot carbon arrows then go to a 125 grain head. Parker Bows have a strict 400 grain minimum for arrow and head and going to carbon brings that limit dangerously close.
We will not sell carbon arrows for a Parker anymore unless they buy 125 grain heads with it. We have had two, maybe three brought back in now that had exploded limbs due to lack of arrow weight. In the back of your owners manual you can read more about it.

Never underestimate pride; it can be a Man's greatest strength or his worst enemy


Never Forget.
