just a couple of comments on the two bows...i have shot and used a couple of ten point bows...actually had an opportunity to do some speed and accuracy testing with them...they shot fine and generated the speeds that were advertised for them...when it came down to pin point accuracy from controlled conditions (rest, etc), the safari classic outshot the two tenpoints in the accuracy department...this was after all of the bows had been checked for cam timing...(one titan had steel cables as i recall - this was a year or so ago)...at the closer ranges the differences were minimal, but with factory carbons that were supplied with the Parker bow, the bow shot inside groups of both ten points at 50 yards (after we "adjusted" the moon nocks supplied, with a flat nock system...there is a lot of foc on the bolt combo as it is supplied with a 125 grain field point from the package...(flat nocks shoot far better than the moon nocks in the parker bows...not sure why they insist on putting them on - we've been over this with them !
) ...the ten point triggers were great, but the parker trigger is one fine piece of craftsmanship...it almost reminds me of a fine pistol trigger as of course we had to take it apart and see what made it tick
...bottom line is that all of the bows shot well and it strickly has to be a matter of choice...for hunting type scenerios, all of the bows are great...off a sand bag as mentioned, the parker bow definitely was a "bit more accurate and consistent"...if the ten point has one downfall (on the bows we tested anyhow - they may have changed this now ?)...as far as i was concerned (my opinion only) i did not like the fact that the trigger area, was partly unguarded...realizing that the safety is on most times anyway this is probably not an issue, but it was worth noting in my own mind...on the other hand, both bows had anti dry fire mechanisms installed while the ten point system seemed to be far superior in manufacture ...the parker stock is much longer (longer than the excalibur stocks also) which made the bow a bit more comfortable to shoot in an unsupported, freestanding position (for me anyway)...something worth noting is that the main limb bolt on all of the parker bows should be locktited into position...this is not noted in the assembly instructions...i have since did up a parker bow for myself (the safari classic - although all three parkers are basically the same) and i have used it successfully in a few 3d tournaments and have had it as a second bow for the hunting season - 2nd to my exomag of course
...all of this from the "real cheap seats"...
