It is late to be asking opinions sence I purchased one already, But what do you guys think about the Parker Hurricane?

I don't know what my bolts weight is, but I am shooting 353 feet per sec. through the crono.
I have a horton scope on it. 1st crosshair is 15 yards, 2nd 30 yards, 4th 42 yards, 5th 65 yards, 6th 80 yards.

At 80 yards I put an 8 inch paper plate on my target and every shot hits in the 8 inch plate. That my not be good for some of you but I could not believe it and I was doing the shooting.

Iam sure parker is not the top of the line xbows but Iam happy with the way it shoots. What I don't like is its a little long.......

Great little bow...the factory arrows (if you got a later one) are 425gr Carbon express. I find them a very good arrow but abit light on the FOC so if you use a heavier tip on that arrow your accuracy will increase. It is actually considered a higher end bow since its construction and speed place it up with some of the best. The Tornado is the new option that is more compact than the Cyclone/Hurricane.

I shoot it's collapsible-stocked brother, the Cyclone. Definitely NOT a cheap bow. Great value. Hits speeds that only bows costing 2ce as much can. Parker makes good stuff and provides great customer support. Like Dave says, a little more FOC (Google it) will make the bow even more accurate. I use 20" Golt Tip Lazer II's, a 110 grn brass insert, and 2" Blazers for vanes. My broadhead of choice is a 125 grn Slick Trick Mag. FOC is over 20%. Gives me great accuracy and terminal performance and they shoot so close to the point of impact of my field tips that I don't even need to practice with the broadheads.

I'm shooting the Cabelas Stalker Carbon bolts 22" with 100 gr 4 blade muzzy. At 30 yards its shoots 2inch groups at 50 yards it shoots 4inch gropes.
I shoot Muzzys because that is what I shoot in my Hoyt Bow deer hunting. I purchased the xbow to Turkey hunt with.

I don't see me shooting a Turkey over 50 yards. I do have some 125 gr Muzzys so I'll try them and see if the groups get better.

Thanks for the info............

Those arrows have an aluminum insert...you need more weight up front. Pop on a 125gr BH but make sure it is the 1" cut. The other option is a 150gr AMB Bolt sonic, or a 170gr NAP Spitfire if you really want to tighten up your groups
