This was well worth the 2 hour trip to Springs PA for me! Not only did I save a bunch of cash but Arrowhead really took the time to sit back and make sure I was happy! We even went out and shot about ten shots in the blasing wind we had. That being said the crossbow held an impressive group at 20 yards. I really couldn't believe how quiet the bow seemed when I heard it go off the first time. FORGET seeing the arrow in flight at 20 yards, all you hear is the crossbow and the arrow hitting the bag! I will post a lot more on this bow when I get a chance to sit down and shoot, Saturday was miserable and with mom's day yesterday there just wasn't time for it(KILLING ME!) He didn't have any arrows in stock but has them ordered and is going to ship them out when they are done. I didn't get sent away empty handed though! HE gave me 3 arrows of the only 6 he had in the shop. Nice shop and has about everything you need for a crossbow on hand. I strongly recommend Arrowhead outdoors to all of you for your crossbow and other archery needs! I have to order me some of that custom deer pee! I really couldn't be happier with my new xbow or the experience I had at Arrowheads. I will put it you this way.. I got the Parker perfect storm package (except for the arrows I got 12 Victory shafts instead of 6 hotshot bolts) 3 EXTRA victory bolts with field tips, a 450 series bag target, the upgraded and I DO MEAN UPGRADED XB-30 X-bow scope, one pack of limbsavers for the foot stirrup and one pack of the limb saver "strips" that you can stick on anywhere, for about somewhere in the neighbor hood of 200.00 PLUS - cheaper than I could have gotten just the basic package of the "Perfect storm" Not to mention my local dealer told me he didn't have this x-bow in stock and that if I wanted him to get it in I would need a deposit of 250.00 at which point if I didn't like the bow I would be stuck taking it or lose the cash! I do understand they would be stuck with it if I didn't buy it, but if you are in the business and want return customers and strong recomendations you need to have what you advertise in stock...
They have the sims limb saver anti vibration buttons you can place in the holes of the stirrup as well as the 4" long strips that stick on. I think I am going to use the strips as an added finger grip under the thumb rail on my cyclone. They are nice and soft "gel like feel" they would provide an excellent grip when it is wet outside. Arrowhead has them in stock, he gave them to me and said if I had any areas that I felt were noisy to add one.... But I have yet to find a rattle or noise...
I am taking the Tornado out tomorrow for my first turkey hunt of the year...nice thing is I know I get to shot it at least once.
My son will be away at a Scout weekend or he would be carrying the Enforcer right by my side...seems funny he is the one that got me all hyped on using our crossbows for spring turkey this year and we have yet to be out becasue of other stuff and bad weather and the season is slipping by.
Anyway, here is too good products and good dealers!!!! And sliced turkey for lunch.... , looking forward to my first spring hunt eventhough it is solo.

Arrowhead is a good guy.I don't have a Parker but the Excal Axiom for my son came from him.Best service in the business.I would much rather deal with a man or woman I can talk to.Not a sales associate.
