My dad has a parker cyclone crossbow and as he is getting older is struggling more and more in being able to **** it. What crank cocking device do you guys like and prefer to use?

Can't help much on a Parker but my Excalibur one works great.Would save about 80-100 bucks if you did it for him the night before.I don't think it would hurt the bow.They are brand specific as far as I know.

Iuse a cocking device for my parker and excalibur buying it was the best thing i ever did. It takes a little longer to set up however having the string properly aligned and the comfort makes it all worth while.

Crank devices are brand specific for the most part. The Parker Sidewinder is what you are looking for if the rope is getting too difficult for him.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
