I shoot the trailblazer xp and love it. I have never shot anything but a Parker, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I have had no complaints so far.
Just bought my 11 year old grandson the Sidekick XP, he loves it. I like the "Grow up with Parker" program, ship the bow back to Parker with $50.00 and they'll replace the limbs with the next draw length and weight, then send it back. He'll be set for most of his life with this bow.

My opinion,DONT SHOOT PARKER OR PSE.The parker ultra light was the only good bow they made and that was years ago.Too many good bows out there to buy a parker

I shot a parker the other day in the pro shop came with the ez cams roll over and have to say smooth as silk at 50lbs (45 to 60 )
I am looking for a smooth drawing bow that does draw easy because of the neck surgery past dec:
I also cheched out the martin saber with again the new M pro cams another smooth drawing bow .
decision decision?
I went with the martin I think both bows were close the parker 1/2 lb less then the martin over all weight of 4lb
and the bow itself was $200.00 cheaper

Parker makes an excellent bow, and as everyone has pointed out - the customer service is terrific. I've always owned Parker but have been able to shoot several other brands and IMHO the Parkers perform just was well. I shot the Raptor XP side by side with a Katera XL and personally liked the Raptor better. To be honest, the best way for you to decide on a bow is to go shoot some yourself.

I shot the Parker wildfire XP and it was a very nice shooting bow and for the cost it was really good a complete package for $429 I liked it, but then they showed me the new hoyt power hawk and I shot that and fell in love with it, but it was tough to pick between the two, if you get a parker you wont go wrong believe me.

I shoot a Parker Wildfire XP; couldn't be happier with it. Best bow for the money IMO.
