Wicked Ridge Warrior vs. Parker Bushwacker

Ok, which one should I get? I've got a lot of experience with the Parker Enforcer . I got a buck and doe last year with the Enforcer but my 14 year old son has claimed the Enforcer this year. I really want to watch my budget on this one. What do you think? Thanks!

Both very nice bows for the money. Between the two, I would lean towards the Wicked Ridge. Not by much, but I currently believe that they are a bit better bow.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Wicked Ridge Warrior vs. Parker Bushwacker

Both weigh 7 lbs. and shoot 300 f.p.s. The Warrior is one inch longer and 1 1/4 inch wider. The Warrior has 175 lb. limbs and a longer power stroke. Both now come as a package and both are made in the USA. They are both priced at $449 for the package.

Ten Point/Wicked Ridge has really upped thier bows for 2012. They are a much better product this season, as compared to last season. I'd personally go with the Warrior.

Parker is a lifetime.

Wicked Ridge Crossbows, guarantees its crossbows against defects in materials and workmanship that adversely affect the operation of the crossbow for five (5) years from the date of purchase.

Strings and cables are not covered by either company.

Re: Wicked Ridge Warrior vs. Parker Bushwacker

I have owned both and I like the trigger of the Parker more than the Wicked Ridge.

Parker's trigger just "felt better" It seemed cleaner. I have the BW and Its a great lil bow!

Re: Wicked Ridge Warrior vs. Parker Bushwacker

I'm leaning toward the Parker Bushwhacker right now. Just feels better to me. I can get the package, multi-scope, 8 arrows, rope cocker for $345 with free shipping. Can I shoot the same arrows/bolts out of the Parker Bushwhacker as I do out of my Parker Enforcer (that I already have), right? Thanks again

Re: Wicked Ridge Warrior vs. Parker Bushwacker

OK, I went with the Parker Bushwacker ( since I was really used to the Enforcer and love it). Just didnt want to spend the money on another Enforcer. Got a deal on Ebay for a new scope package for $260 (shipped).
