I received the the bow neatly packed up. I opend the box and found some cool stuff inside.
The bow was in three pieces. flight rail trigger-stock(scope mounted and bore sighted)
limbs head unit
Quiver filled with four arrows
I also ordered the sting stops.
Ok the directions were clear and well writen, also the videos were perfect for me to have the bow together in few minutes.
I love the light weight of this bow. Its like a feather on my back. The fit and finish on this bow is awesome. The black base color with white flecks is sweet.
Ok I set out to the back yard to loose some arrows. I use a ranger finder to mark off 20 yards for the first mark in the scope. I took me three arrows to have the bow sighted in for me.
I chose the hot shot 3xIR scope. The trigger was smooth and predicable. I have been a fan of Parkers G2 triggers for a long time. This bow was right on. Ok now I walk back to 30 yards. This shot was free standing. I placed three arrows inside the small circle of my 18-1 target face!
I walk back to 40 yards free standing again yep two of the three arrows inside the circle with the thrid just out side.( I pulled it)
The bow was not very loud at the shot, I tested the bow both with and with out the string stops and they do work very well.
I love this bow and it will be in my turkey blind this spring!
Disclaamer I am a staff shooter for Parker Bows. I can shoot any of thier bows. I picked the Blackhawk. The reason why is I hunt 99% public land and I carry my stand,bow etc,etc with me on every hunt. I hunted with the Gale Force last year (awesome bow) but it was lil heavy for me to pack in with stand,etc!
This bow is easy to load,plenty fast 320 fps,light weight and man it shoots awesome! Ya get alot of bow for the money!
This bow is 100% american made,life time waranty!
