Guys - I ahve narrowed down my choices for a Croosbow to either TenPoint Titan HLX or a Parker Tornado. I have looked at both and both have features I like. Price is about the same. Thought?

Tks

I like my Tenpoint Titan, very accurate and the accu-draw
makes it easy to cock and load. The only complaint I have
is that the red dot scope flickers on and off sometimes.
When it works correctly it is a nice scope.

Tornado with Hawke optic here....i think it truely is a "can't go wrong" crossbow.

Buying another for the troops in 2010.

Of the two I would opt for the Tornado. More compact, a touch faster and better optic on top. The Ten Point is quality as well.

I also bought a tornado with the hawke fixed 3X scope on it, can't go wrong. Arrowhead will fix you up, you can't beat his deal. Great guy to do business with, also.

Tks Guys

I am new to this site so I don'T know if this reply will get to all of you.

last question? I have read and heard of Tornado Limb Breakage. Self inflicked or design flaw?

I do like the Tornado a bit more than the Titan.

All the problems we are seeing with the Tornado are user error. If you take time to read the owners manual, you'll be just fine.

Tks for all the input. I have also done some more research. I have now made up my mind. In an effort to not offend any readers I will not state which crossbow I have decided on but from the replys I can see where both crossbows are quality items. I would not go wrong with either choice.

Tks

Arrowhead - Any reputable dealers near me that you deal with? I am north of Scranton.

Tks Arrowhead for your input. I would really like to do business with you but I am concerned about issues like service, problems, hands on, etc. I would like to ask you more but this may not be the forum. My Email is [email protected]. If you can give me an Email address it would make our conversation easier.

I have made up my mind and will be buying as soon as the weather breaks.

Tks

My son (amputee) shoots a Tenpoint. Two years ago we had the flange break that attaches the rear of the trigger mechanism to the stock. I called Tenpoint to see if we could still safely use it as we were heading out for the weekend. Tenpoint overnighted the parts, called me Friday to see that I had them and if I had any questions, then called back Monday to see how we fared and if we had any success. Based on that customer experience I would shoot nothing else than Tenpoint.
