I'm not a shopper - I usually decide what I want and get in and out of the stores (even Cabelas or Basspro) as fast as I can. When I went to Basspro last year to get my first bow, they had a sale on Parker Phoenix 34 and the honest-seeming guy told me it was the best bow/deal they had. I tried it, liked it, and bought it. How come you all shoot PSE, Hoyt, Mathews, Bowtech, Golden Eagle, Browning, and Martin...and nobody else has a Parker? Did I miss the article about the three guys who've lost their left arms or something?
