Re: arrowhead

Welcome to the forums. You will like the Tornado. Stop back and give us a report, after you get some shots through it. If you have any questions or need help, just give me a call. That's what I'm here for.

Re: arrowhead

X-finder...Welcome to HPA, we got a Tornado last year, and plan to get another Parker crossbow this year to further arm my troops and get more out there.

My 12 year old son and I both dropped does (his was a button buck actually) last year with ours set-up by Arrowhead. So it fits a wide range of hunters nicely without adjustment. They went 15-20 paces post-shot and they were both down for the count, exactly what I wanted in accuracy for us, both shots were under 20 yards out of a ladder stand.

My one tip, practice out to 45, but keep it under 35 when it comes time to take a life. You will love that crossbow, I did a big writeup on shooting ours in for the first time last year... I found it will drop a about an inch a yard after 20 or so.

Did you get the Hawke multi-recticle ?? If so increment it at 10 yards (we did 15, 25,35,45) and you should be shooting it great in no time.

See ya in the success forums in October. Best of luck with the new weapon.

Re: arrowhead

You don't have to justify the use to me..I was a long time off and on archer and I didn't have any surgery or anything like that, I just used one last year "just because it was hoot to shoot!!" , Loved every second of it and am looking forward to 2010 ALOT!!

Enjoy your season and your Tornado
