Her it goes. I am bracing myself. I have to say that so far, I think that I have an excellentbow shop 6 miles from my house. They will spend all of the time in the world answer any question that you have. My only problem is that they are Mathews partial. They deal in PSE, Bowtech, Browning, Bear, Mathews, AR. They sold Hoyt till two years ago when the pres. was traveling with the salesman and, well, they opted out of their dealership. I was told it was over price increase versus innovation. Anyway, this dealer gives credit to Bowtech, Bear, etc for their smoothness and shootability, but he claims that with the set-up that they use, the Mathews will flat out out last them. This comes from candid conversation. He will show and sell you any bow that you like. Everybody is on the Mathews band wagon. I like to be different. I drive Fords, shoot Dan Wesson revolvers, things like that. Will Mathews out last the other bows? I'm talking 50 arrows a day, 5 days a week.
