I will be picking up my new Parker Tornado soon. I was wondering what you all are shooting? I like Carbon but with a X-bow sized arrow I think alumm 2219 would have more KE...? What ya think?

Thanks Koz

I have a tornado, Victory x-bolts, 20 inch, 110 gr insert, moon nocks, 2 inch fusion vanes, weigh 417 gr with a 100 gr slick trick broadhead. foc is around 18%, Shoots vg from every cb we shot them from. Parker manual wants a 11/32 diameter shaft. Too bad you are so far away. could try mine.
Good luck, Stant

The difference between carbon and alum as far as energy....you will gain 4 ft-lbs with the alum. arrow. (83.56-vs-87.15)
We have tested and developed the Victory since June 2009. It is the most accurate arrow in the Tornado.

wow thanks good info to think about. Any one try gold tip shafts. Lazer I think. I love my xt 5575 shafts!

gold tips are not big enough, They are not 11/32 and parker does not want smaller. I had some and sold them.
I read this in the parker manual.

If you are thinking about using Gold Tips, I would start with the new Kinetic shafts. They should be a good starting point in the Parker. I haven't tested them yet and can't say what they will do, but I suspect they should do well. We shot the Gold Tip Laser II's all last summer and had no problems with them, they are a very accurate arrow.

The Victory shafts, inserts and moons are going to be $55. These were the most accurate arrow we tested in the Parker Tornado.

Those are the BOMB! I helped test these out(when the weather cooperated) and they are by far the best I've shot.

AH, is that price for 1/2 dozen or full?

Glad you said that I just bought some to try this year with my Parker.. Never seen what you CAN'T use.. Thanks for the piece of mind
