Default Parker Bows (Grow up with Parker Bows)

Last weekend I saw a ParkerBuckshotbow, a youth bow.I was toldby the Parker representative that as a child grows, the limbscan be replaced to better size the bow to the child. In the long run, saving money by eliminating the needto buy a new bow every few years.Anyone have any comments/opinion on this bow or concept?

Thanks.

My cousin has a parker buckshot 30-40# and it seems to be a well made bow. Parker is a fairly new company (I think) but their products seem to be high quality. I would think it would be a great entry level bow for a kid to grow up with.

my hunting buddy's fiance shoots a buck shot, and it was a youth bow at one time and they replaced the limbs and she's a pretty sweeet bow, i have a perker hornet twin cam and the just flat out smokes an arrow, they make an awesome product, and customer service is second to none.

My wife got the Parker Challenger II, like the Buckshot, it's in the growing up w/ Parker also. Shoots really nice and only need to change Cam modules, not limbs... $50.00 to do that! I have a parker Frontier 2-Plus and love it! I have no complaints...

i have a buckshot , i had 30-40# limbs but i sent it away two days ago (along W/ $50) to get 40-50 # limbs. 4 other of my friends have them too . the buckshot is an awesome bow. its pretty light too. i would get the package because they come w/ whisker biscuts now

They are good strong bows I was looking at one before I got my Hoyt. They are not the quietest or the most shock free but they are good bows.

I bought my son the Parker hunter Mag, a couple years ago. It is a sweet shooting bow and he has killed several deer with it. It did fly apart on him at a bow shoot last summer when the lower module came apart. Parker did replace the limbs, string, and lower cam under warranty no Questions ask. I think it was just one of those freaky things that happen from time to time.

One of the fellows I hunt with gave his grandson one at the age of 8. The kidwas able to draw 35#s and huntthe next year. Now @10 and drawing near 50#sthe boy has taken several does with it.The cost is great for someone to raise a kid on.......and keep them in the woods...

TAKE YOUR KIDS HUNT'N AND YOU WON'T BE HUNT'N YOUR KIDS!
