Parker Spartan

I see one for sale on this site.Is it just me or is that the ugliest piece of hunting equipment you ever saw?It looks like a wood working tool from Sears.I know I have one the same color and material.If you need to know it is a router table fence.

Re: Parker Spartan

I saw the one posted here and I agree it is not very pleasing to the eye...lol

It does resemble the buckbuster a little minus the camo. I guess the camo finish must really make a difference becuase my buckbuster doesn't make you think "man that's a nasty lookin bow". I will say if it shoots as good as the buckbuster there aint nothin wrong with it.

Re: Parker Spartan

I'm a member of Parker's Field Staff one of our field staff members shot a perfect score at a crossbow archery tournament recently with the Parker Spartan. Although this xbow is affordably priced it shoots like a dream.

Re: Parker Spartan

I had a fellow make a face when I passed him during archery season last fall. I thought he was offended by my mis-matched camo ensemble.

I feel better now knowing that some folks simply don't share my enthusiasm for the sleek, flowing lines of my Parker Spartan.

I think perhaps I'll try gluing some leaves to it before next season.

Re: Parker Spartan

Not only was our field staff members score perfect. It was the only perfect score that has ever been shot. Here's the press release.
THE MOST ACCURATE CROSSBOW…
Parker Field Staff member shoots first FITA perfect score.
Many crossbow enthusiasts are searching for the answer to the question “who makes the
most accurate crossbow?”
On February 21st, 2010, Sean McKenty of Belle River, Ontario competed in the 2010
FITA Indoor Provincial 10 Ring Championships. Using a “Stock non-modified” Parker
Spartan Crossbow, a popular hunting model that retails for a mere $399.95, Sean posted
the first ever perfect score of 600. The closest score in the compound bow freestyle
division was 596.
A month previous to Sean’s FITA win, he also won the NFAA Indoor championships
posting a perfect score of 300 with 59x’s with the same Parker hunting crossbow.
With the crossbow market rapidly evolving and expanding recreational shooting is
becoming more popular every year, many enthusiasts are also seeking the spirit of
competition. When asked about the significance of his championship performance Sean
said “I have competed all my life with a compound bow, and travelled much of the world
while doing it, I wanted a new challenge. I personally believe the crossbow is at home on
a range as any other choice of archery equipment is. I wanted to prove to myself and
others that the a crossbow is much more than just a hunting tool”
Adam Thomas, President of the Ontario Archers Association had commented “Ontario
has enjoyed a 30 year history of crossbow hunting. The Ontario Association of
Archers (OAA) has openly welcomed crossbows at our championship events for quite a
number of years. Crossbow shooters from all over Ontario are able to compete against
one another, whether they are from the far north or south. Welcoming crossbows into the
ranks of competition or just recreational shooting on a Sunday afternoon is positive
for everyone who enjoys the shooting sports. The OAA is looking forward to seeing the
crossbow category grow, and Sean's score will certainly attract some attention to those
seeking a venue to compete."
“Our team at Parker Crossbows is committed to engineering and manufacturing modern
crossbows with accuracy, performance, quality and durability as the cornerstones of our
design. We believe our products will enhance our customers experience in the field or on
the range. All of us at Parker are very proud of Sean’s accomplishment, and are flattered
a world class archer chose Parker for his equipment.” - Paul Vaicunas, Senior Vice
President, - Parker Bows.

Re: Parker Spartan

They might be ugly, but they are venison makers. A first ever "perfect" score! And, a 300 with 59 X's. That is wild to even imagine....with any bow!

Re: Parker Spartan

Yet another reason not to judge a book by it's cover! Hey my buckbuster shoots great and everyone who has a tornado that I know of love the way they shoot. I'm not surprised at all that the spartan is one awesome shooter.
