    I just got my Peterson's Bowhunting magazine today and, per their advertisement, Trophy Ridge has arrows being officially unveiled October 1st...

    Shaft straightness .0008"... Notice the extra 0 in that measurement.
    3 spines: 350, 400, 550
    Ugly orange-ish yellow graphics like all their stuff has.
    They use half-out inserts like Easton has as an option on some of their target arrows. The half-outs are the ugly orange-ish yellow too...
    They have Predator vanes by Duravane.

    The ad says they provide more kinetic energy, which probably means that they are heavier than an average carbon hunting arrow. They did not print the gpi information...

    So, I wonder which country outside the US those are made in ?

    And I knew that TR bought Rocket Broadheads but they also bought Whisker Buisquit rights from Carolina Archery (or all of Carolina Archery...). It's all in one ad...

    I wouldnt buy a sticker that those guys made. let alone arrows. They should concentrate on curring there rests and keeping there sight micro adjustment levers from breaking before they start with arrows...

    Didn't the Escalade Sports people buy Trophy Ridge? Looks like they are trying to own all the manufacturing required to make every item on a bow.....:noidea:

    I'm not plugging for TR... Believe me. I have a TR top of the line sight from a few years ago that I had to spend another $40 on to get right. They might be better now but it's too late for me. I'm a business man and a company gets 1 strike from me and they're out and heading to the 'pine'. $90 for a TR one piece quiver ???? What are they smoking in that company ?

    TR seems to be the one trying to buy up the market to have a complete bow and accessory package. Just which bow company are they going to buy ???

    I was just shocked to hell to see a TR arrow ad. I was actually really. really shocked...

    Geez....

    yes they did...

    TR isn't buying anyone, they got bought by Escalade a year or so ago along with Carolina Archery and Rocket Broadheads.

    Escalade is also the owner of NAAG (North American Archery Group) the guys that make Fred Bear, Buckmasters... etc

    Wow, there are already too many arrows on the market. Their going to need to do something to really make them stand out. With a .0008 straightness factor, I wonder what the price is going to be?
     
  12. Apparently Ronhop has been living under a rock....Beginning of this year, as Dredley stated, TR was bought out by Escalade Sports/Bear Archery. TR won't be buying a bow company, a bow company bought them.

    Escalade had bought CAP (Whicker Biscuits, etc) long before TR, but now the WB and CAP's other products will be marketed under the Trophy Ridge name.

    The TR arrows look pretty dang cool if you ask me - but I am a TR fan boy and former/current :)confused: ) Pro Staffer.

    Another rumor is that Escalade bought out Gold Tip, and the new TR arrows are really old Gold Tips with different features.....We'll know more on October 1.

    I read that in given time,Escalade/Bear is going to give the old looks of the TR products a new make over..be interesting to see what they'll look like.I'm sure that escalade/bear knew that some changes would have to be made when taking over.I remember just a couple short years ago,if someone said anything negitive about TR....a Buuunch of people would jump their butt.Funny how things change.
