BOWTECH/EXCALIBUR COMING TO A THEATER NEAR ME!

Post by amythntr » Wed Jul 17, 2019 2:52 pm

.....years ago I used to go to a local pro shop when I was shooting a compound bow....they seemed to be in bed with Matthews but they did sell other compounds....they were terrible to deal with but they were good; they knew it and people knew it...they were phenomenal in setting up your new compound....

.....a couple of years ago I went in there and told the owner that I no longer shot a compound and was now shooting an Excalibur CB....I asked them if they carried them....well they had maybe one in the corner and talked them down and tried to tell me how much better the Matthews crossbow was and yada yada yada....simply put they did not like Excalibur because of its simplicity and the fact that they made their money on the purchase and then it was adios for the most part....

.....well the other day I got an email from this pro shop telling me that Bowtech/Excalibur was going to be there and showing their offerings and if you signed up you would get some freebies and one hour on their range (not sure if it would be for CB's)....

.....Wow!....what a change from the past....I wonder why the change....could it be that they and Matthews got divorced or something else...

.....in any event I will be going tomorrow around 4:00 PM.....I will report back how the event went!

I bought my first crossbow from the bow shop I used in 2004, the year they became legal in Georgia. I used this guy with my compound bows for years. I had right rotator cuff surgery in 2002 and had to sit the entire 2003 season on the side line. If crossbows hadn’t became legal my doctor was going to give me a medical waiver.
The owner of this shop knew this, sold me my first bow a Horton and still refused to work on crossbows if he had “real bows” to work on. I had no choice because he was the only game in town. In 2010 a new shop opened up an I bought my first Excalibur, made a point to stop by his shop and let him know that he had lost me as a customer because of his views on crossbows. Now that crossbows have gained so much in popularity guess what over half his inventory is now :?: I reckon he learned to love them or go out of business.
My feet will never break the plain of his door again.

Anthony, I thought you came to boofest for all the expert knowledge. A few of the boofest regulars have probably forgot more then these representatives know. Plus ........ boofest regulars actually use the bows regularly.

Living in Saint John, NB. As far as I know we have no bow shops of any kind. 2 hours away we have a Bass pro. Canadian tire stores sell a few Excalibur’s. I am left to the Internet to try and search out answers and opinions. I mail order most everything fishing and hunting. I had not even shouldered a crossbow before I received my Micro 355 from Cabela’s.ca. I am so glad a bought the package that contains the C2 crank. Since Bass pro bought out Cabela’s the Cabela’s.ca has dropped so much of their on line stock I’m very disappointed. I have purchased $1000’s of equipment from both Cabela’s.com and .ca. I live 60 miles from the state of main and have a mail box in a warehouse there. Sad where I live we have very little choices.
I’ve been fortunate to visit the Cabela’s in Dundee Michigan and Owatanna Minnesota. I thought I died and was in man heaven.

..... just got back from the pro shop... the bowtech guy seemed to pretty knowledgeable with the Excalibur’s.... I think I was partly instrumental in a 360 sale... exchanged numbers with the guy that bought it....

..... so I shouldered the 420TD and was surprised how nice it felt....if they sold it “naked” I might be interested....and the matrix limbs don’t excite me.... I actually shot it. ... not bad!

....Jeff: Looked on Wyverns site....the only thing they appear to take off the package is the scope....$1,599....too expensive for me :eusa-naughty: :eusa-snooty: ....I want a bare bow as I have a scope, would order a munch mount, and Dr.stirrup accessories....if it was more like $1,399 I might (and I stress "might") be on the fence as being possibly (ad I stress "possibly") being interested. :eusa-shifty:

That's the beauty of these bows .....you dont need the stinky attitude or the services of the pro shop at all.
Just like my longbow Forgedaboutit. I order most accessories on line and usually use woodys for warranty issues and parts or accessories. I like being self sufficient and having an extra bow or 2 .......or 6 maby 8 to have as backups.
