    Just curious since I was unable to find anything active or archived regarding Parker.....which surprises me.
    So, if you're shooting a Parker, what model and how do you like it? Pros? Cons?

    I have had a Parker Buck Hunter for about 5 years now. For the price I feel its a really great bow. Its not as silent or quick as my brother's Hoyt but thats comparing apples and oranges. As I said, for the price I have no complaints with it and would buy another one without question.

    I got a parker trailblazer xp it shoots very good and is smooth and quiet. I wouldnt get the package but the base bow with stuff you buy and put on it is a very good bow

    I bought a Parker Wildfire some years back to get me into bowhunting and I'm still hunting with it. Its not their top of the line model but is shoots great and I get compliments on how quiet it is. I'm sure I'll upgrade eventually but for now its a great bow for the price. I also love Parkers customer service. I damaged the cam when I took a shot and it hit the rail on my tree stand, they replaced it for just the cost of shipping no questions asked.

    I shoot an inferno. Plenty fast and flat shooting. My only complaint was it was a little noisy, but I solved that. Great bows made by guys in VA.

    Parker Spitfire, Didn't care much for it.

    It was a loud bow, not a very smooth draw. But like you said, Its a decent bow for the price. I wen to Cabelas and that's where it got me..

    I got a buck hunter when I was 14. It was slow with a very spongy wall but pretty quiet. It was great when I was a kid. Now my girlfriend shoots it. Overall though it was a solid well built bow. Took all the beatings I threw at it like any stupid 14 year old would

    I shot a Parker Buck Hunter for a long time. From when I graduated from my youth bow until about four years ago. I upgraded to a Bear just because I was really getting into it and I had money saved up for an upgrade. The parker was great for the price and I am now giving it to my girlfriend so she can get into archery. I personally think that Parker gets hidden in the shadows of the big boys, but when you have a budget to consider it is a great value option.
