Parker Hurricane Crossbow[/caption]
The Parker Hurricane is a well made tactical compound crossbow. The tactical style is apparent in the stock design. Not only has the foregrip been skeletonized, but the butt of the stock is adjustable. Shooters can extend the butt of the crossbow an extra three and a half inches to accommodate longer body styles.
One area the Parker Hurricane does not lack is in the area of arrow speed. This crossbow should be classified as one of the "really fast" bows on the market. It approaches the 400 fps milestone, as it registers arrows at blistering 380 fps. Arrow speeds like this coming out of a bow that has a draw weight of only 165 pounds is impressive.
Noise is one problem associated with high arrow speeds like the Parker Hurricane has. It appears the engineers at Parker considered this when developing the Hurricane. Although it is a bit heavy, weighing in at eight pounds, this extra weight will soak up vibration upon the shot and should be quieter than a lighter bow. This bow also comes standard with Parkers exclusive Anti-Vibration and Shock system to decrease noise upon release. Finally the Parker Hurricane also comes standard with limb dampeners to battle noise as well. All in all this crossbow should be one of the more quiet bows shooting ultra fast speeds.
Finally, the Parker Hurricane comes in a variety of packages for potential buyers. One decision a buyer will have to make is the the optic type. The Parker comes equipped with an Outfitter 3x multi reticle scope
, a 1x Illuminated multi reticle scope, or a 3x Pin-Point scope
. The Parker Hurricane also comes in an optional Perfect Storm Package. This package comes with absolutely everything you will need to hit the hunting woods. From arrow and broadheads, to a crossbow case and camo Parker hat, the Perfect Storm package has it all.
All in all the Parker Hurricane is a great crossbow from one of the most trusted names in the business. This crossbow was designed to be fast, quiet, and to come equipped with everything you will need for your next hunt. If you are in the market for a new crossbow it might be worth a look.
