can't help you with the Cyclone...but I have a Tornado...and have shot a Vision....the tornado is faster with good balance and is reasonably quiet....the Vision is slower, much quieter and with much better balance. The only thing I did not like was the cocking sled for the Vision...that may have been simply because I was not used to it.....
Four of us shoot Parkers! Great people,nice product for the price.LIFE TIME WARRANTY can't beat that. A few friends of mine have Horton they like them alot,Buy one that feels good in your hands! If you have the funds get a good scope,know matter what crossbow you buy. Have fun and keep your thumbs away from the rail.
dpms,I heard some limbs issue on Parkers,Was it crossbows or compounds?
I am aware of mostly the crossbows. The Cyclones and Buckbusters seem to have the most issues. Don't get me wrong, limbs fail on all crossbows because of the extreme mechanics. These two model Parkers have had their issues, but as time goes on, the frequency is diminishing.
My Cyclone has been problem free. I attribute some of the limb problems with Parkers coming from the moon nocks and weak retention springs. The spring do not have great downpressure which can allow the arrow to creep away from the string with time. Also, it is imperative to properly index the arrow because of the moon nock. Don't pay attention once and the limbs could go boom.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
If I had to choose between the two I would probably choose the Cyclone. It's just a class above the Vision in my opinion.
That being said, those are both 2010 models. The Cyclone is now the Gale Force and the Vision is now the Havoc.
Here my choice would probably be different. For about the same money as a Gale Force, you could get a Horton Fury. The Fury will be a bow to watch this year. It's new and unproven, but looks like a performer. I would wait and see how it shakes out when a few of them are released.
