Parker Crossbows

The new Cyclone is amazing. It is a smaller version than last year. It is now similar to the Tornado, in that it is more compact and light. It now has string stoppers and that has completely stopped any vibration and has cut the noise level way back. It is a much improved version as compared to last year. The black carbon fiber tactical version has been replaced with A-Tacs tactical camo. It is a more desert storm type camo. Next G-1 is still available, and all come in the new soft touch finish. I think the new camo is much better, as it has more grip to it.
The Tornado and Buck buster 175 are unchanged from last year, except that now they come with the soft touch camo finish. The Buck Buster 150 and Pink Stinger 150 are the same as last year.
The Enforcer 160 is the new entry level bow from Parker. It shares a similar stock shape with the Tornado. It is very light and feels good in your hands. The riser and limbs are very different from the Tornado. The BushWacker 150 is basically an Enforcer with 150 lb limbs and black stock. Both have the Max-4 camo finish. All the models from the top to the bottom share the G2 Trigger.

Re: Parker Crossbows

What are your thoughts on the Enforcer 160? I see your comments but wondering if you had any more thoughts on it. I'm on a somewhat limited budget and would like an upgrade and this one caught my eye.

Re: Parker Crossbows

Just from the looks, it's certainly not up to par with the Tornado. It will be a very good priced, entry level bow. That isn't to say that it's bad, just that it is an entry level bow. All they had available at the show was a mock up of the future bow, as it's still in the final development stages. They didn't have any to shoot. It will however, come with Parkers full lifetime warranty.
