RANGE ‘EM …. DIAL‘EM….TAG ‘EM ….WITH A PIN POINT SCOPE.
New for 2010 Parker Crossbows introduces the revolutionary “Pin Point” scope.
As crossbows get faster and more advanced, the optics must keep up with the changing times and
performance expectations of today’s modern hunter.
The New Pin Point scope is going to be considered the essential scope for precision shooting
from crossbow enthusiasts looking to extend their range and boost their aiming confidence.
The basic concept is built around the large majority of hunters today use the aid of a laser range
finder to determine the distance to their game. The Pin Point scope can be matched or married to
the calibration of your personal range finder.
Branded under the RED HOT® label, the hub of this scope’s technology is a patent pending
elevator turret mounted on the top of the scope that is calibrated in one yard increments,
determined by the speed of your crossbow. It is customized to your bows performance. Simply
range your deer, dial its distance, and shoot with confidence that you have shot at your deer to
the exact yard… No more hold over or hold under as with standard scopes.
The construction of the chassis is a one piece 30mm aluminum mono tube for ultra bright light
gathering at dusk and dawn. It has a variable power of 1.25x – 4x magnification, with a fast
focus external locking ocular ring. The crosshair is a laser glass etched reticle with a 4 MOA
illuminated center point. The illumination can be selected in five brightness settings of either red
or green. The Pin Point scope comes with 30mm rings and a custom drop over base that installs
on 7/8” weaver style rails. The Pin Point scope is water proof, fog proof, and shock proof and
comes with a complete set of turret speed tapes from 280 to 380 feet per second.
Paul Vaicunas, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said “The introduction of the RED
HOT® Pin Point scope will change the way hunters shoot at their game. The confidence boost of
aiming to the exact yard of your quarry and hitting it every time will no doubt put more venison
on the table every fall for Pin Point scope owners.”
The RED HOT® Pin Point scope has an MSRP of $299.95, and is backed by Parker’s Lifetime
warranty.

If you practice at 60 or 70 yards it helps to make those 30 yard shots alot easier. If you don't understand why that is done, maybe you shouldn't be teaching ethics.

That is so true, many bow hunters and shooters practice at long distances and it makes them better shooters and hunters at hunting ranges

Why does your speedometer go to 100 or 120 mph in your vehicle? You're not allowed to drive that fast ever.....I think.....

It looks like the Endurance 30 IR made by Hawke. It looks like they calibrated the turret for crossbow use. I like the idea of a variable scope with a calibrated turret. No matter what power you choose, the dial does the work.

Make the switch to the Hawke. They are the finest crossbow optics out there. You won't hear me say that about any other crossbow scopes. We sold many different brands this past year, Hawke are the only ones that we haven't had a warranty claim on.

I love our Hawke on the Tornado. Although I still need to learn how to use those vertical lines in it for range finding.

I will be one of the first dealers in the U.S. to get my shipment of Parkers. Should have them in about 8 more days. I can't be certain the scopes will be in the first shipment though. I sure hope so.

I do not own a crossbow but I am interested in getting one for my Son.

This may be a dumb question but not Knowing a thing about x-bows is it reasonable to shoot 60 yards? 70 ?

Say a Parker Tornado what is the lethal range 50 yds? 70?

Coming from a Bow Background that distance sounds insane.

I'm not Bashing just curious.The Tornado is the Bow I'm looking to get my Son

The Parker Tornado is a very capable bow in the right hands. I have shot 2 inch groups with broadheads at 50 yards with them.

That being said, I would never shoot at game that far. There are too many things that can go horribly wrong at that distance. A limb here a twig there....you get the idea.
My personal limit is 40 yards, and even then I want everything to be perfect. If it isn't, I am more than willing to wait another day, for that one perfect shot. These are strictly my opinions, but they are based on literally thousands of shots with the Tornado.

Very impressive.

I have looked at the x-bows at the Harrisburg Show and have narrowed my search down to the Parker Tornado.
The Ten Point was a close second.

My only problem was how Top Heavy some of the Parkers were but since my Son will be shooting out of a ground Blind I will sacrifice the top heavy of a compound for the compact design.
The Excalibur's were nice and lite but the limb length of the re curve seemed to support problems with maneuverability.

I think Dad is going to have to give the Ole X-Bow a try next year.

BTW I have not visited your web. Where are you located?
