Parker Parker Cyclone HP 165 Crossbow Outfitter Package

The Cyclone HP Crossbow combines tactical features with modern technology to create a crossbow that can be customized to fit your frame and shoot bolts at an unbelievable 350 fps. The adjustable stock and forearm, an idea adapted from many of today's tactical weapons, customizes the length of pull and hand position so you are assured of the most comfortable shooting stance possible. The 165-lb. draw weight and 15" power stroke work in conjunction with the INV Inverted Cam Technology to provide a stable shot with blazing speed. Pre-installed Sims Limb Savers? and String Leeches? absorb both sound and vibration to make sure your shots are quiet and shock-free. The machined-aluminum riser and Picatinny barrel are more durable than composite materials, plus accessories can be mounted to the forearm easily. For safety, the Cyclone incorporates both an auto-engaged ambidextrous safety and an anti-dry fire mechanism. The Cyclone high-performance string slides over Teflon? "Over-Center" cable slides to reduce wear and increase string life. The machined-aluminum foot stirrup provides a stable place to hold the bow when cocking. Overall, it measures 35"-39" long (depending on the adjustable stock setting) and 21-7?8" axle-to-axle. The Outfitter Package includes a 4x32 multireticle scope, rope cocking aid, Parker INT three-arrow quiver and three carbon bolts.

good crossbow good customer service

Date:January 15, 2009
I have had several crossbows all from different companies and i must say this crossbow is very eye catching and feels good in the hand the shotgun styling and adjustable stock is great for getting that perfect fit the tigger pull is the easy and crisp just like a gun sighting in was a breese with no arrow drift at different yardages all my other crossbows drifted and the longer the yardage the worse the drift the cyclone is very accuate i am currantly shooting out to 60 yards and plan to go ferther when i find a crossbow scope that has more than 4 lines in it i called parker to see how good there word is on the life time warrenty on three different days and with atleast 2 different people they stood by there warrent they were willing to make it right for me no hassle or run-a-round at all i have had problems with other crossbow companies in the past but not with parker this is the first crossbow i have owned from parker and it will not be the last this is a great crossbow (in my opinion one of the best) backed up by excellent customer service i am very happy with crossbow and company

Parker Cyclone HP 165 cossbow

Date:January 5, 2009
I found this crossbow to be built to break ,If your like me and bumb once in a while on a tree, or your truck or drop this crossbow, I believe it will break sooner than later it comes in two parts the trigger handle assembly then the lond rail with the crobow attached which is totaly unbalanced the long rail is most of the weight of this crossbow and 4 little bolts holding the long heavy rail to the short handle stock and trigger assembly is poorly thought out and constructed, I didn't even fire this crossbow becuase I knew that I need a crossbow that is rugged yet very dependable I don't want to have to worry if I bumb my crossbow it my fall apart., I had a Hortons Legend 175 it was rugged and shot good, but I wanted to step up, the Horton only shot about 300 fps I want to go up to around 330 fps. In closing this is my first post ever on Cabel's site doing buissnes for many years with them ,So I hope I have helped somone who is like me and wants great performance with great quaility that you can count on from years from now.
Ps . Cableas has alway been great to take back murchandise and give refunds , special thanks to Cabelas.

Parker crossbow

Date:October 20, 2008
I have had many,many crossbows over the past 10 years and this Parker Cyclone is my second favortive of all time. I have been sold on Excalibur crossbows the last several years but this new Cyclone crossbow has proven itself since I bought it several weeks ago. I have been shooting it about 5 times a week getting ready for deer season which opened 20 days ago and have found this C-bow to be super fast, super quiet, and have super accuracy. It's great to carry in the woods do to the light weight and size of the crossbow.

Poor Design Stay Away

Date:October 7, 2008
Although this is an awesome looking and preforming bow it has a falal flaw. The action of this bow bolts to fore end with 4 flat head screws, the action only mates with the fore end about 1.5 inches deep. The area where the two pieces meet shifts and causes the bow to bend which in turn causes the sighting to shift by about 10" @ 20 yards on the bow I saw. Unitl Parker finds a solution to this problem I would stay away. 4 flat head screws in an aluminum extrusion are not enough to secure all that force.

Parker Cyclone HP 165

Date:July 3, 2008
I finally got drawn for the unit 6A archery bull elk season! I went searching for a new bow but instead bought the very cool looking Parker Cyclone. On the 4th day of the hunt i shot a huge 6X6 bull elk from about 45 yards. The bolt hit him just behind the shoulder exactly where i aimed. I recommend this crossbow to anyone looking to hunt with a crossbow.

You gotta get this one!!!

Date:May 31, 2008
I just recieved mine from my local dealer today fired just 3 bolts and I highly recommend this crossbow!! its light for a crossbow, fully adjustable stock and at an IBO of 350 its tough to beat for the money, not to mention Parkers great service and a life time warranty on top of the price I dont think you will find a better deal!
