Not sure about the model, but my hunting buddy had one on an elk trip and split a limb in the course of a mountain side fall. Parkersent him free new limbs even though he admitted he fell, andin less than 5 days!! So good customer service.

He likes it a lot and he's just as good to 60 yards with that bow as he is with his Hoyt.

I shoot an '06 Parker Hornet, no problems at all, I love it. It is extremely quiet and deadly fast. Check out their website, parkerbows.com. Their new line of XPbows out now are sharp and I guarantee if you shot one, it would be just as good as any other brand, I'm tellin you. And you can't beat the price of a Parker bow. If I were crazy about havin a new bow, it would be the new Blackhawk XP by Parker.I think I would like those slim grips it has. Anyways, Parkers are great bows. Customer service is exceptional as well.You won't be disappointed if you choose one.

like these guys have said customer service is good. all have warrantees on the limbs. also if you are a young hunter they have a thing where you buy a bow and as you git bigger you can git bigger limbs. my lil cousin has had his for a coupls years now and has grown alot and is hppy he dont have to go out and buy a new bow, he jus gets new limbs. parker dont have the big name but i think it is a quality bow. quiet and fast and affordable

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.

I got the parker wildfire last year and love it. It is light and compact. It is the best bow I have owned so far.

I have the hunter mag that I hunted with for a few years and like they said above they are good bows with excellent service. I shot mine one time out of my stand and the bottom limb hit the rail of my climber splitting the limb I took it to the closest shop, he made a call to parker telling them what happened and they told him to replace both limbs no charge, he took down a new bow and took the limbs offand had me back hunting the next morning.
