    Yote, I agree with the economy the way it is, It is important to give dealers wiggle room, but if it has been an ongoing issue not a recent thing, Then matters will need to be resolved or we may not have a dealer in that area at all.
    Thank you for your comments.

      Here is an idea...

      Have the dealers meet a minimum quota to maintain an "exclusive" territory. If they are selling and servicing the equipment, they deserve to be taken care of. When you first set up a dealer, they have to sell x number of bows within a certain time period to get exclusivity. This will get them pushing the product during the "honeymoon" period of a new relationship. If they dont reach the goal, talk with them and find out what the issues are and see if you can help them. The faster they start selling any product, the faster they become familiar with it and you will have more of their share of mind when someone walks in the door.

            My question concerns delivery time for a Left Hand bow.
            I spoke to dealer about getting a LH Gt 500 At this month and was told it would be late March before any "might be" available.Is this true and if so why such a long wait? 90 days at least for a Lh bow to be built is a little extreme.

              Elite just ordered the forgings for the left handed Z28s and GT500s. Official word is late march to early april.

                Vetting Process

                Kristin,

                How do you go about selecting your dealers? Some it appears are extremely knowledgeable (i.e., Fury X) and client service oriented while others seem to know very little about the product, tuning, etc. What type of vetting process do you go through to ensure you have dealers that truly help to promote your products and overall brand? It's not enough to simply sell a bow anymore -- dealers need to know how to get the most out of the bows.

                Let me state that I fully agree with the policy -- I will buy my next bow from a local dealer (if there is one) but I will have them ship it directly to Wes to tune it properly. Just becasue you buy it from your local shop doesn't mean they have to work on it. It's kind of like a local car dealership -- I would buy my car from the dealership down the street but in no way would I let them work on it.

                Keep up the great work!

                Thanks

                  OK, I thought you couldn't order bows from the big 3 online. I went to shop.archerycountry.com and they have three Matthews bows, including the Monster and Reezen, and I'm able to [Buy] online.

                    I dont know how they are getting away with it. Because I know from the dealer here in Lebanon, Mo that is a Mathews dealer and it is Mathews policy no internet sales.
