    I went hunting at 3:00 this afternoon. About 5:15 I heard a pop that sounded like an acorn or a large raindrop hitting my crossbow. I looked at it, but saw nothing. About 2 minutes later I hear a large crack. My limb split. I’m done until I can get a new crossbow since Parker is out of business. This is the second time this has happened. I’ve had this crossbow for 8 years. The first year I had it a limb split and Parker fixed it for free.

    Ouch that sucks! I had a limb split but my bow hit my rail when i took a shot. (My fault). Have you dry fired or done anything to it that might cause it?

    No, I’ve never hit it on anything or dry fires it.

    Well maybe Parker will do something for you, but I wouldn’t fault you for trading it to another brand.

    I sold my Parker late last summer not long after they went out of business. I loved my Parker Cyclone but had actually broke limbs twice in the years I had it. They always replaced, no issues, except like you they’d break during hunting season and I’d be without it. Check eBay they may have some Parker stuff.

    Will do. Thanks! I’ve had my Parker for 8 years, and I’ve killed a lot of deer with it.

    Had my Cyclone from Fall 08 until last Summer. Killed more deer with it than any weapon I own. I really was hoping someone would buy Parker out. After all those years I still sold it with case, Parker arrows, roller cocker for $500. It was a nice set up. Took the money and added a few hundred and bought a Mission MXB Charge package off eBay. I like it. I’ve killed a turkey with it but I really miss my Parker sometimes.
