After selling and servicing a bunch of them I would have to say 10-Point. Much better distribution so parts and/or service almost anywhere. Best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with.

The Parker is a nice crossbow, but I've seen what I consider more than average limb failures. Also, it looks nice and balances well, but accessories like a crank and such can be a real hassle, as can be getting a case for it. The only things that fit are those from Parker.

Ten Point is the premier crossbow manufacturer. Parker can't compete with Ten Point.

Parker overated and over priced, ten point nice but over priced,
I bought a Excaliber - vixen a couple of years ago,
I love it, took 3 seconds to sight in, super accurate and very dependable.
and the price was right. I highly recomend it.

Ten point is ovr priced but the Excalibur vixen isn"t? I don't quite get your reasoning behind this.

The Vixen is Excaliburs lowest priced lowest grade crossbow they offer and it retails for $360 and comes with nothing but the bow and a single pin peep sight.

A Ten Point titan TL-4 is Ten Points entry level bow and comes with a quiver, arrows, field tips, a red dot - 3 dotsight or scope and the factory mounted accudraw 50for $570.

Add up the costs for the accessories to the Vixen and you come out about the same but have a better bow with the Ten Point titan TL-4.

Quiver -$24.99
Arrows - $15
Red dot sight - $80
Accudraw - $80

Compare apples to apples and you come out about the same. Sure Ten Point has a bow package that retails for $1650 but it is the king of all cross bows currently available and comes with absolutely everything you could possibly need to shoot and hunt with a cross bow, from field tips and Wasp broadheads to to a hard case to keep it all in. And it's all premium accessories and not just something thrown together.

When I purchased mine it was complete package, quiver, arrows, yeh sigle pin sight, so what fancy sight not needed. and soft case, $400.00 I shot
all three, Parker Honestly peice of crap, At least the one I shot.
the ten point was OK, for $900. I was unimpressed. out of the three
the excaliber was the smothest, quietest, and most accurate. and it happened to be the Cheapest.
