    Default Parker Phoenix 34

    I can get this bow for about $290... nothing included obviously. Im a novice, and this seems pretty good. Its only 28'' draw and 60# (I kinda want a 70) But i was hitting the target pretty consistantly... from 10yards lol... but still

    What do yall think about this bow?

    Not sure about the bow. I have a Parker Buck Hunter and have been happy with it. I would caution about the 70lb draw wish. If you truely are a novice, that is serious pull in my opinion even for a seasoned bow hunter. 50 to 60 is really all that is needed.

    I hunted with the Pheonix 34 this year and I hit every thing I aimed at... THe only thing I would caution you on is watch the buss cable serving I had to get a new cam from Parker after that everything was sweet...

    very true. Being a big person.... Like me.. I'm in the 245 range. I shoot about 60# for hunting and 62# for 3d and 55# for spots. You are going to soon realize that you are using muscles that havent been worked before. And while you can pull it back ok. After shooting for a few minutes you will start to feel fatigued. And then your accuracy is compromised.. If you do decide to go with a 70#. Crank it down to about 62# to start. Get your body and shoulders used to first... Good luck!!!

    Default parker phoenix

    i have shot the parker phoenix for about a year now, and i think it is one of the better bows out, there i ahve shot everyhting i have aimed at, but the 70 pound draw weight is a bit much, i shoot mine at 62 pounds and it is more than enough i think, but i would go ahead and make th purchase if i was you. good deal.....
