To say there are a lot of good bows on the market is an understatement. We are seeing companies come out with all kinds of "New" technology and ways to generate energy and speed. The goal is to get durability, speed, and the draw comfort and shootability in the same bow. And some just can't do it.
Ric Lawyer introduced me to the Strother Archery idea and business plan. I trusted him due to past dealings with Ric regarding a new archery company. So it was on the positive side from the beginning. It took a while for the shop to get our first bows, but it was definitely worth it.
The initial look of the bows as we pulled them out of the box was the fact that they have an attractive aesthetic design. Smooth and clean lines. No sharp edges or gimmicky gadgets. That was the initial impression. The next was the draw and valley. It is still hard to explain, other than it is an even pull with a soft rollover into the valley. Nothing rough or uncomfortable with the draw at all.
American Outdoors is very pleased to have made the decision to apply for a dealership with Strother Archery. We are even happier to have been accepted and have them in our shop. Like I said prior, for a company to meet all of the desired characteristics in a bow in unusual. For the looks to be smooth and clean, for the draw to be very easy and comfortable, and a shot that is very close to zero on vibration, and very quiet, is difficult. And for the bow to be fast. Strother Archery has met those criteria.
There is one thing to say and I will quote a well versed archery customer that shot them in the range. "That is the nicest bow I have shot all year. If you have guys shoot these bows in here you better be able to get a lot of them".
Hi Strother Archery,
This is Jeff Galletta from Wild Wind Sporters in Warren Pa., don’t know if you remeber me, but we spoke via pm about 6 wks ago concerning a rep getting in touch with us. Well Bob Palitto came to the shop yesterday with an SR 71. To say I was impressed is an understatement. I have been in and around this business going on 30 yrs and this was by far one the best bows I have ever seen, congrats on a great bow. I put the bow thru some tests on a hooter shooter, checked draw length and it was right on, checked cam lean, limb twist, there was none, and did not feel the need to chrono. Draw curve was different, interesting, fit and finish were outstanding. Again, congrats on a great product. Mr Palitto said we should know in a few days if we get the dealership, I sure hope so these bows will be a pleasure to sell and shoot.
