Re: Parker tomahawk

great bow,got my son one and it shoots every bit as good as my tornado,the early released ones did have problems with string wear because of the string riding to hard on the rail but parker has revised the bow front to solve the problem. so if you bought one now it should have the revised front,for the early release tomahawks parker is replacing the fronts,my sons is a early release and I should have his new front any day now.

Re: Parker tomahawk

Retro engineering.
I have a feeling we are going to be seeing alot of this in the coming years, from many different companies. As manufacturers rush to get the lastest and greatest to market, problems like this are going to continue to plague the industry. I saw this one coming and it's one of the reasons, Wicked Ridge and Ten Point are where we put our money this season.

Ten Point is a company that makes small improvements each year and they seem to stick to improving what they already know works well. Small incremental improvements are better than a new lineup every few years. Excalibur hasn't really changed it's design since the first one off the line.

Kinda funny because they are still selling alot of crossbows even with all of these new and improved ones on the market.

Excalibur's K.I.S.S (keep it simple stupid )system works for that very reason.

Re: Parker tomahawk

I own a Tomahawk, great bow for the price. I have probably 500 shots through mine at this point and not a hint of a problem. Accurate, light, lifetime warranty.

unfortunately it does seem to be the case with these new model bows,tried a challanger for my son first had problems with that then the tomahawk and problems again, unfortunately because of this we decided to return the tomahawk and try a different manufacturer and at this time it looks like this will be the company getting my money from here on out.I just can't understand what is so hard about getting the bows right before release.
