Broken crossbow. what to purchase next?

Well, I guess it was too good to be true. I purchased an Arrow Precision Inferno Fury for my daughter. I purchased it after hearing great reviews from a few of my friends. Well after getting it all sighted in and getting my daughter comfortable shooting it, the bow decided to break tonight. Here we are only a 2 weeks from opening day and she doesn't have a bow. The left side safety broke and now the bow does not cock all the time. I am very concerned with the safety of the bow, so I am planning on trying to return it. However I will lose out on shipping and time.

Thinking of spending more then I can afford and getting her a Parker Challenger small frame bow. I am hoping that since it is brand name it will hold up for longer than a few shots!

Sorry to vent but it was heartbreaking to see her face when she couldn't shoot tonight.

Give Arrowhead a call. His info is at the top of the forum. He carries Parkers amoung many other brands and would be able to get you fixed up with a good setup for her.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

I had some range time with a Challenger the other day. Nice little bow for the younger hunters and the ladies. It should be a good choice for your daughter. Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

Re: Broken crossbow. what to purchase next?

that challanger is a neat little bow for kids but before you buy one if at all possible check it out and take notice to the flex that the scope has side to side,had one for my son but returned it because I was not satisfied with the scope flexing the way it does.
