Default Anyone use Parker bows?

Im about to buy my first bow. I found a good deal on a parker bow.
Cabellas has a Parker Phoenix, and a Parker Pioneer XP (the specs are what I want).
Parker Phoenix was $619 now its $379.
Parker Pioneer was $599 now $349.

Anyone have experience with Parker brand at all? Any experience with those two bows listed?

I don't need top of the line stuff because im just starting out and $400 is about all I want to spend on a bow.

My son shoots a parker and loves it. Good bow for beginners or intermediates, and those appear to be good prices. I would, though, find out how much it will cost for the local pro-shop to set it up to you dl and everything else, sometimes that alone can suck up the savings. It is also good to get in with a good pro shop that is willing to help you out along the way.

LOVE my PARKER Phoenix. Quiet, shock free and fast. What more could you want. Unfortunatley, do to shoulder surgery, I am in the market to sell the bow, Cobra sight, quickie quiver and gold tip 5575 camo arrows.Sorry I am keeping my Ultra Rest. The bow is set up with 29" draw with 70ln limbs. $450 TYD Insured. If interested let me know. You can e-mail me at gmace64@hotmail.com. I do accept PayPal, so you can use your credit card, but add $20 to cover the fees.

Seems like a good deal!.

Unfortunately I bought the Parker Pioneer XP yesterday. I think I will be happy with my purchase though.
