My Parker Cyclone is now 5 yrs old ( I probably have 150 shots thru it) and is by far my favorite weapon that I have ever owned. It has a lifetime warranty but since Parker stopped making them a few years ago Im worried that if something like one of the limbs breaks I won't be able to get it fixed despite the warranty because of lack of replacement parts. I usually replaced my compounds every 2-3 years but crossbows are a completely different animal. My question is how many years would you guys keep using a crossbow that you absolutely loved? My concern is it failing during the rut etc and not being able to get it repaired in a short period of time or repaired at all due to lack of replacenent limbs/parts. I dread the day that I have to replace it but I am loving the Ravin R-9 but I'm going to hold off spending 3 times the amount of $$$ than I did on my Cyclone as long as I can.
