  • Congratulations to all those who braved the cold conditions at the IFAA Nationals in Orange. We hope you shot some good arrows and had a chance to call in and see Alec and Grant at the Abbey Archery Truck.
  • Now that winter is upon us it is a good time to get some ASAT gear, for hunting on these chilly days. The ASAT Elite Extreme Beanie will keep your head warm and hidden, the ASAT Elite Extreme Layer Zip Mock keeps you warm, comfortable and scent free, and also the ASAT Gloves. With winter here, once you have tried them, you will never forget them, plus they add the extra camouflage that you need.
  • Winter is the time to make sure your equipment is in perfect condition and these products will help do that: Tri-Flow Lubricant for all the nuts and bolts on your bow, string wax for your bowstring that dries out more in winter - Bohning Tex-Tite and Bohning Seal-Tite and a set of Vista Hex Wrenches to make sure all your screws are tight.

  • The 63rd FITA National Archery Championships was held in Brisbane between 16th to 21st May 2010 and Win & Win Archery, from Seoul, South Korea, manufacturers of world class recurves, attended the shoot and then visited our Brisbane store. The staff of Win & Win then travelled to Sydney where we were thrilled to be given a first hand look at their new Inno CXT bow, which has been released and is already receiving rave reviews. The CXT riser is manufactured from Nano carbon and incorporates a series of weights that are attached adjacent to the sight window and you can add or take off weights. We are most fortunate to receive the first batch of CXT recurves in Australia and they are available at both our Sydney and Brisbane stores. The riser colours are most attractive and the handle style and its cut-outs are aesthetically pleasing.

Our news this week is that we have acquired another four product lines:

  • Last week we received our initial shipment of bowstrings & cables from Winner's Choice. We stock two-colour buss cables, strings & sets for some Hoyt bows. Winner's Choice strings are trusted by the world's top archers, are pre-stretched & can be relied upon to hold their length regardless of environmental conditions & greatly increase consistency. Weatherlock technology, now standard on all Winners Choice strings, makes strings impervious to all weather conditions by completely waterproofing string, protects string fibres from abrasion better than any other string product & reduces heat absorption, which robs accuracy. Strings have a one year warranty & guaranteed to have no peep rotation, serving separation or creep. We can order your string for you and have it in within 10 days. We will soon upload Winner's Choice products.
  • We received our first release aid order last week from Scott Archery. We stock 7 models - the Rhino XT, Wildcat, Sabertooth, Little Goose, Little Bitty Goose, Caliper & Quick Shot, in 12 styles, in buckle & velcro straps, in a four hole length adjustment, nylon connector or micro-adjust rope-connection.

  • During the week, we received another Slick Trick broadhead order. We have more stock of all heads and spare blades including RazorTrick 4 blade broadhead 125 grain and RazorTrick 4 blade broadhead 100 grain , GrizzTrick 125 grain and GrizzTrick 100 grain as well as Magnum 4 blade broadhead 125 grain . Magnums were the first super short broadhead back in 2000 and are strong with superb penetration and reliability. GrizzTricks spin true, are super sharp out of the pack, the ferrule is super hard and they do not bend after many shots. RazorTricks are patterned after an old Indian arrowhead and are an outstanding low energy head, cutting hide and flesh. Every season the legend grows.
