So, I recently sold my Parker crossbow and bought a Kodabow BZ. I have my leftover Red Hot bolts on Ebay. There are six bolts (4 new, 2 slightly used) plus a Parker discharge bolt. So far I have 21 bids, the highest at $102. This is more than I paid new. Are these now a collector item or something, since Parker is no more? I am shocked what people are wanting to pay for these.
Any thoughts?

I am curious to see if this ends up being some kind of scam but I guess I have to let the auction run out to see if they pay up. Will let you know.

Pros
One string to change and can be done without a press
Very well built and solid
Very accurate
Can be de cocked without firing
Adjustable AR style stock to fit a wide range of shooters
Exceptional customer service. The owner of the company personally responds to questions

Cons
A bit loud when fired
Wider limbs than a compound so hunting in a tight blind might be challenging

Overall though, I really like it and will probably buy a second one down the road.

To answer your question about the Red Hot bolts, yes. People are paying over the original price for Parker bolts. We have customers coming in all the time looking for Parker bolts. The Red Hots were a little heavier than than the standard Parker bolts. It took us awhile, but we were able to find a bolt close in weight to the original Parkers bolts. Most people are also after the nocks since they were in short supply. This year another company came out with a similar nock that can be used. They are just limited in supply due to Covid. Right now I'm looking for a Parker Gale Force stock for a customer. People still lover their Parkers.

Yeah, that is what the buyer said. People who still have the Parker crossbows are paying a premium for these arrows. He ended up paying $ 157.00 for the bolts. I thought it was going to be some type of Ebay scammer but it was legit.

I am not sure. The buyer said the Parkers shot great for him and didn’t want to switch.
