I was on Parker's website...Anyone know why they changed the name from Tomahawk to Thunderhawk?
No idea.... I noticed it a while back and the "Tomahawk" was listed just as a new product. Thunderhawk huh?
You can probably bet it has something to do with a legal issue. I hate the lawsuit driven world we live in.
I don't doubt that at all..
my local shop explained to me they recieved a letter stating that the name change was something to make the name politically correct. i just shook my head cause i can figure out how the name of a weapon used by Native Americans can be take in a negative way.
Does that mean we get new "thunderhawk" labels for our crossbow?
Yea it is crazy to think that people try and "own" words or phrases.
Crazycharger....welcome and congrats on the new Parker crossbow. I'm also using the hunter arrows with the 100gr spitfires and really like them.
I've had mine for about a month or so and like everything about it.
from what i was told by my shop is they were just told to sell out the current stock and that they should just update their system to show the new name so no replacement badges for it.
i hope to pick up the spitfires this weekend. how do they hit compared to the feild points. do you think i will need to sight in for those or could i get away without doing that since my shots are 30 yards max. if you sight in with the broadheads are you using practice blade or or hunting ones
After receiving a box marked Thunderhawk, when I ordered Tomahawk, I called Parker directly and spoke to Doug... There is apperently a copyright issue with that name, so instead of paying massive fees to use the name, They just went on and changed it. He said "Same exact product, different name".
Hey, now we have a rare crossbow! LOL
Three Rivers Archery owns the brand name Tomahawk . They sell a high dollar longbow under that name. Maybe Three Rivers is the issue.
I still like knowing that we still have a winner in owning a Tomahawk/Thunderhawk as they are light and accurate for sure ! Delino
