Re: Parker red hot accessories

I personally do not shoot them but I know those that do and they have nothing but good things to say bout them.

The broadheads are G5 Strikers which is what I shoot in my Excalibur.

I know some members here shoot the Red Hot arrows.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Some of the Red Hot accessories I like... and some could get better. I wouldn't rate any as bad.

Re: Parker red hot accessories

I'm on Parker's Field Staff and I can say that a ton of thought went into each of these accessories. If you have any questions about them feel free to send me a pm. The Red hot bolt in itself is unbelievable in terms of flight and penetration. Durability is yet another factor. Red Hots utilize carbon express' weight forward technology. Developing a greater front of center does two things it stabilizes the arrow and also increases penetration. Think of it this way. If you fletch a pencil and throw it a dart board then throw a dart which has better flight characteristics? WHy do you think the dart flew better? Because the weight was in the front. Also when you have the weight in the front it creates more momentum. Momentum has kind of taken a back seat in the archery world to Kenetic energy. Kenetic energy although important isn't a function that is as important as momentum when you think of down range penetration. When the weight is in the front and the bolt is built with a good front of center the front of the arrow pulls the rear of the arrow through the air. Also once it hits the deer or target it continues to pull the arrow through the target. With less front of center and less weight up front it has to push through resulting in less penetration and down range accuracy. The Red Hott Crossbow case is very nice as is the Roller Rope Cocker and the crosspro broadhead. When you look to a broadhead it will be hard to find a fixed broadhead that will compete with the crosspro. The Crosspro is basically a modified G5 striker. These heads kill. The wax and rail lubes are very good too but be conservative on the rail lube. Use lots of wax but keep it away from the serving. Rail lube and wax will gunk up your trigger system. Any questions please pm

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity

Re: Parker red hot accessories

When I first bought my Tornado I purchased a few of the red-hot arrows with it...They fly good, but at $10 each you don't want to lose any!
