I don't have that particular bow, but I purchased a new left over Parker Hornet a few years back and have been nothing but satisfied with the bow.

Best thing you can do is to go and shoot it! See if it fits and feels good to you!
I use a Parker Phoenix 34. Still shoots great.

I have a Parker Wildfire XP, Great bow and has a very smooth draw. Great customer service at Cabelas and comes with lifetime waranty.

I still have my Mathews FX I bought in 1999, but last year I wanted a newer and faster bow. I bought a Parker Blackhawk XP and haven't looked back.

I didn't want to spend the $800 for a new Mathews, so that was what led me to Parker. They are a great company (based in Virginia) and they stand behind their products. I had an issue after 100 shots where the cam was wearing thru the serving on the cable. I called Parker, they said "send it in."

I sent it back, they re-cammed it and re-cabled it, and when I got it back a week later there was a check for the amount of the postage it cost me to send it in. Great pro shop to talk to on the phone as well.

Many of my friends have recently switched to Parker bows, and they are all very happy.

By the way, I draw 68 lbs and shoot 30 inch easton axis arrows with 125 grain broadheads, and my 2009 Blackhawk XP chronographs at 298 fps.

Good luck!
