Parker Tornado VS Tenpoint (any model)

I already have 2 crossbows and am really getting the itch for a newer more compact model. I like the compound style. I don't think that I can justify owning 4 just yet. Any thoughts or comments ?

Re: Parker Tornado VS Tenpoint (any model)

Ten Point has a new model for 2010 that is 13 1/2 inches axle to axle when cocked. It's the Turbo XLT. That is going to be a very compact bow for sure. $899 for the Accu Draw 50 model and $999 for the Accu Draw. I'll try to shoot it at the ATA show next week and give you my thoughts on it.
That being said, I really like my Tornado. Actually, I sold it yesterday. I'm not sure what I'll be replacing it with just yet. I've got my eye on the new Parker Cyclone, with dual string suppressors. It promises to be a very smooth shooting bow. It's got a shorter power stroke and shorter overall length and should balance just about right.

Have you looked at the Scorpyd? Different and very compact. Usually when someone has more than one of something they are looking for something a little unique.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

mpg629, the TL-7 is a 2008 model bow. It had the old trigger system. I can still get them, but the new Titan HLX is mush better in the trigger.
ANTLERKING, The Tornado doesn't have the AR-15 style stock. The Cyclone is the AR-15 style.
New Tornado is $699.95
New Cyclone $799.95
