Parker hornet extreme. 3 cracked limbs in 1 year.

Parker hornet extreme. 3 cracked limbs in 1 year. Frustrated. Anybody know the factory sales representative in the Harrisburg PA or state of PA?

Re: Parker hornet extreme. 3 cracked limbs in 1 year.

Am looking for a new crossbow, I will be crossing Parkers off my list if your having that many problems. What crossbow exactly is it if you dont mind me asking.

The old Parkers with monolimbs (like the Hornet Extreme and the Cyclone) had limb cracking issues. Parker has stopped producing those crossbows in favor of split limb designs which have not had cracking issues. I own a Parker Tornado F4 and it's extremely accurate, trouble-free and a proven deer slayer.

So far my Tornado HD is holding up.

I see that the New Condor has solid limbs.

But if you want a trouble free crossbow I suggest Excalibur Micro series

On my 4th front end on my tomahawk, due to limbs cracking, no more parkers for me.

Too many ongoing issues for my liking.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

What the heck is going on with these people? It's not rocket science to make a reliable limb.

Apparently it must be cause there is not any brand of bow that hasn,t been mentioned for these issues in threads on here for the last several years with mabe Excalibur the exception.
