The shops around here probably sell more Mathews, followed by Bowtech, then Hoyt. The only place to get PSE and Martin locally is Bass Pro.

When it comes to the individuial brand name I would have to say Mathews... When it comes to bows and private labels PSE. But it's my guess?

Got to be Mathews and Hoyt in the pro shops around here.

PSE and Darton in the big box stores

If you want a Martin around here you have to special order it.

Bowtech???? Whats a Bowtech?

I would say that bowtec has a strong hold on the market followed close by hoyt and mathews. The shop that I go to just picked up mathews, so that may change since there is mo local dealer for them that I know of.

without a shadow of a doubt its PSE.

If you want to know who sells more PROSHOP level bows... I would guess

1. Mathews
2. Bowtech
3. Hoyt

I don't think Martin is anywhere near the big 3 anymore. To many dealers don't push their products at all and PSE and NAAG undercut Martin in the big box stores so I doubt they are doing that great in the rankings

I know you were just kidding but its very true. Bowtech is almost non-existent around here. If you want to go to a Bowtech dealer its either an hour south or 45 minutes north (both "local" bowtech shops are on my blacklist for being horrible dealers). If you want a good bowtech dealer its 1 1/2 hours away and they are quickly dropping to the black list as well.

The closest Mathews dealer is 10 minutes away, after that its about 40 to the next closest one. Both of which are good shops.

The local Hoyt dealers aren't bad, the best one is over an hour away

The local Darton dealer is on my blacklist

It all depends on the area you live in.

In my area Mathews for sure is #1.
PSE second, is my best guess.
Bowtech/Diamond third, another best guess.
I don't know anybody who shoots a Martin. I don't know why because local shops do sell them and they have some nice bows at some nice pricepoints. I shot the Bengal this past Winter and it was very nice. I didn't like the grip at all but you can change some things...

They can't afford the electricity to machine away any more material than that.

I would have to agree with PSE.In my area the Fred Bear line has done really well even though the pro shopp sells Mathews,Bow Tech ,Hoyt and the FB line.Not a whole lot of good paying jobs where i live and if you wanted one of the first 3 that i mentioned,you have to work the over time to get it.Sometimes the higher price bows is not an option with a with a wife and kids for some of the younger guys in my area.

When it comes to top of the line Pro shop bows there is no doubt that Bowtech, Mathews, and Hoyt get top honors
