    Default Athen's Archery

    Don't think I''ve seen a thread about this new company on here yet. This is the first year for this company that is based out of Rochester Indiana. I signed up to be a dealer and got this bow in today. Thought I would post a few pics. It is a pretty nice bow overall. It shares a lot of it looks and design points with other companies, but this seems to be the norm these days.

    I got it in at lunch today and had just enough time to put a limb driver on it, set the let-off and timing and shoot about 8 arrows. The bow shoots really nice. Very similar to the Elite GT500's draw cycle and shot.

    Axle to Axle is 31"
    Brace Height is 7"
    IBO is 330fps.

    I don't have all the info yet. I just signed up friday and basically ordered one bow so I could take a look at it.

    The finish on this one is Next G1 Vista which is a nice looking camo.

    Retail is $699

    It does feel good in the hand. Sits there quite naturally.

    Exactly.

    No one holds the patent on these cams yet because the patent hasn't been issued. From what I've been told, Elite filed for it quite a while ago.

    I was told by a pretty good source at Elite that they are working WITH Athens on the cam deal and not against them.

    Ok Mr. Wizard. I have to ask how you made the decision to carry this line? Are they in the same distribution channel as Elite? What are the selling features which prompted you to take them on?

    I need a sales pitch, Way too many bows on the market to choose from we need some reasons to go with this cutie

    Because they are made in Indiana.....I want to support local archery businesses.

    They have nothing to do with Elite. They are their own company.

    Selling features are listed above: Barnsdale limbs, Winner's Choice strings, Torqueless side plates, zero cam lean, smooth draw, limb bolts screw into steel barrels, steel stabilizer bushings, decent speed.

    I know what you mean about the number of good bows in the market. It is hard to decide who to carry and who not to. In my mind, this is a test run. I have a bow of theirs, now I can put it through the paces and see how it stacks up. I don't think they are going to start full production until after the ATA show. They are trying to get the bows out to a few people now to get feedback.

    I spoke to the owner today for about 45 minutes and he was a really nice, down to Earth man. I look forward to working with him in the future.

    Nope. With the 2 track binary cam system, neither interchangeable nor adjustable modules have been worked into them yet with good results. Like the new Elites, they are draw specific.
