    There is a new shop in the Rockford Area and should be open soon. The address is 8289W Burden Road in the old Fishers Appliance building at 251 and Forest Hills Road.

    The shop is called Obsession Archery. There will be a multi-lane 20 yard indoor range, possibly video in the future. Current bow lines are Hoyt and Bowtech.

    As stated above, the shop is not ready yet, construction is still underway. Hoping to be open by mid September.

    There has never been a shop in the area like this one. Big, great lighting and products for every form of archery.

    If you are in Northern IL/Southern WI and need a Hoyt or Bowtech product just call 815-877-1212.

    Oh Yea_____

    I have been doing alot of archery buying this year from 3dshoots.
    I know that I also bought my first Hoyt last week from obsession archery,and can't wait till the doors open up to shoot the tar out of it.
    Congratulations Buddy!
    I wish everyone could know how wonderful of a releif it is to have someone actually take the time and show even a advanced archer.... like myself(ha) what a archery dealer does for his clientell.
    I am estatic and you will know where you can find me at.
    Funny how a custom doinker stabilizer order seemed to dwell into a fabulous relationship ...
    If you haven't met or talked to Chris yet you surely don't know what your missing.
    I am sure there will be more to say,I am virtually speachless,and mostly because that is due to happiness.
    I need a tissue guys.

    Yes, please do post when you are opening. I'll make the trip and drag along the whole family. Just received one of two bows for myself and will need rest/sights/release/arrows, for both. Can't think of a better way to say congratulations than buying new toys. Let us know!

    We are making great progress on the store. I will keep everyone informed on a date. It's looking like two weeks yet. We are working as fast as we can. We will open before the shooting range is ready.

    this'll be nice!

    Been out of archery a while, the last shop I spent considerable time in was the old Bow Rack at Forest Hills and Harlem, it'd be nice to get a shop that compares with the friendliness and expertise... see you at the opening! :D

    Well how'd it go?

    Is the range open yet? I know a guy who is working in the area from Michigan
    and needs a place to shoot. Should I send him your way?

    The range is not complete. We do have a roll around target that he can shoot at if he wants to come in. Sure send him by.

    Hey arrow1b---

    Yeah, I think the word is out already. Maybe the cat will do an Ovation before we toss it Outback?
