    Hello my name is Bobby but my nickname is Smoke and has been for as long as I can remember... Lt is a rank I had at a previous job so that explains the screen name :)

    I am a brand new Parker Eagle Bow owner as of 1030 Am today. Yesterday was my birthday and I had to work so I went to my uncle's shop today and bought my bow and some extra goodies as a nice B-Day present to myself.\

    I dont know JACK about Archery hunting but I am hoping that will change with my membership here seeing as how this is Bowhunting.com :)

    ^^ Tru Fire Release

    I also purchased a Bag and 7 Field points for shooting my Bow at my house...

    All in all I am super happy with my purchase and I cant wait to get it tuned properly and cant wait to test out the Rage broadheads :)

    Welcome to the site! That's a great birthday present to yourself. Ask around, and be sure to check Fitz's thread HERE for a starting point on a bunch of great archery/bowhunting topics.

    The string slap issue is usually a result of improper grip and/or an incorrect draw length, btw.
