The new crossbow

Well a few weeks ago i recived a new Parker Concord from a customer as a thank you for work i did for him.Let me tell you its the most quite crossbow that i have ever shot.I would almost say as quite as my Mathews Z7 and the co2 cocking system is fast and very efficent getting about 50 shot out of the 9oz tank at about 65 degrees in my basement.It has the multi retical ill. scope on it that was a breeze to sight in and very repeatable on adjustments .Its not the fastest bow that i have shot getting about 302 fps through my cronogragh average.And the new Soft Touch coating is awsome.Very happy with it.Now just have to wait for spring turkey to open up.

Re: The new crossbow

Not really, weight is 10.2 on my scale not that bad for the blind or treestand.Also if a follow up shot is needed its nice not to have to play with a cocking rope 25 feet up in a climber.I have the Primos Trigger stick that i use while rifle hunting and it works good with the crossbow.Its not something that i would try and stalk with

Re: The new crossbow

I like the soft touch stock on my son's Hornet too...wish it was on our Tornado and Enforcer too.

Good luck with it! Can you still rope cock it if it say runs out of CO2 or something? You can uncock it the same way correct?

Re: The new crossbow

Yeah the soft touch is amazing .Yes you can use a rope cocker if you want and i will always have mine with me in a hunting situation just for insurance .Decocking it is as easy as holding the air button with one hand fliping the safty to fire and sqeezing the trigger.No need to have a discharge target or decocking arrow.

Re: The new crossbow

You can cock the Concorde with a rope cocker if you need to. You will have to remember to "arm" the system to the ready position. You would then need to fire it, to uncock it. (if you are out of CO2)
