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.

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

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.Pathfinder Arrow Wraps
