After about 11 years, 4 great bucks and untold does I am retiring my Parker. Shot a nice 9 pt yesterday and while waiting for sunrise I debated the issue. Altho heavy, long and wide, this xbow is a tack driver. The lack of future support from Parker is the main impetus to upgrade. Past customer support to replace cracked limbs (after it fell off a tree hook cocked but not loaded) was great, new limbs for free in 3 days! They didnt care it was my fault. I have been reading past post on various xbows and you all have your favorites. The prices on some are really shocking. My question to those who have needed customer support how was your experience with the various companies? My choice will factor support highly
on the Tenpoint , the trigger is easy to use and works smoothly . at least on our model. we have had it for about six or seven years now. can`t compare on newer models , but like I said it is a very nice trigger mechanism
Tenpoint or Wicked Ridge if you are on a budget. Great customer service.
Wicked Ridge just released a new bow this year. The M370. Affordable. Fast. Compact. Great service. $560 street price. If I were buying a bow and wanted to spend $600 or less, this would be the bow.
. Im not against paying close to $1000 for a ravin or the like. I think I paid $600 fir the Parker 11 yrs ago. Lighter weight, length and width seem to be smaller now and thats good.Many shots from stand leaning around the tree trying to clear the limbs. Rare that i had to reload fast in a stand without the cocker (no pain under stress) but very awkward to do. Crank cockers seem like an attractive option. Do any of them have pic rails underneath the rail? Go pro attachment would be nice. This last deer is the first on camera for me. Had a 1/4” threaded insert screwed in the underside of the stock of parker. Not sure if new ones have enough stock to do that.
Be a good back up bow! I'll shoot my Parker until parts are unattainable! We have 5 Parker in our family so I fill your pain. My son and nephew just bought new Parker for back ups. Me, I been peaking at a few just in case.
