News for the week ending April 3, 2011

With the World IFAA Titles only a couple of weeks away in Wagga we wish everyone who is competing good luck. Just a reminder to please check your equipment if you haven’t already done so, to avoid the worst case scenario of equipment failure in the field.

The Abbey Truck, together with the new look Team Abbey Archery Shooting Team, will be down there to assist you if any last minute fixes are required. Although we have spent an enormous amount of time training, sometimes the simplest of things can be overlooked. Here is a quick check list of what to look for:

  • How are your string and cables looking? Do they need waxing or tuning to ensure cam timing is good? Is your rest on your recurve still holding up and if it is a stick on rest, do you have a spare just in case?
  • Are your arrows looking in good shape with the vanes or feathers in reasonable condition and your shafts have no faults? If they are carbon arrows, carefully look over them. Do you have some spare points, nocks and fletches in your kit?
  • Also, double check all your screws on your bow and equipment and tighten them up if necessary, to avoid blow ups.

Most importantly, enjoy shooting. Good luck everyone

News for the three weeks ending January 2, 2011

  • Xmas/New Year Hours. While our retail shops, our warehouse and our truck are taking a short break from Christmas Eve till Tuesday 4th January 2011, our web store will remain online 24/7, ready to help you, at any time convenient to you.
  • Our Delta and McKenzie 3D animals, targets, blocks and bags have been packed in our warehouse, but the word has gotten out and many hunters and clubs have already ordered. It would be an understatement to say that they are all selling fast. The big sellers in 3D animals are the Wild Boar , the Red Fox , the Howling Coyote , Javelina and Rabbit.

    New models will be uploaded over Christmas e.g. Archer's Choice Real-World Buck, which when hit, the target rotates from the force of every shot and creates a new shooting angle each time it rests. On one side of the deer are exposed whitetail vitals and bone structure and the other side is the normal hide. This deer is likely to be very popular, once enthusiasts catch on to its value and great practice opportunities.
  • We received more ASAT gear of 3D Leafy Suits , Elite Extreme Layer Zip Mock , Crew Top and Bottom, Field Shirt, 6 Pocket BDU Pants, Long and Short Sleeve T Shirts, Face Masks and Gloves. For all of the year, ASAT stock has been in short supply, so in some sizes, our order was not fully supplied and we received limited quantities, so first in, best dressed - literally!
  • Just arrived are more Scott release aids with the ever popular Caliper , Quick Shot , Rhino XT Buckle and No Sweat Strap , Little Goose , Sabertooth in Buckle and No Sweat Strap.
  • The recent tragic death of our long serving staff member, Peter has left us all very saddened. We wish everyone a very happy Christmas, a prosperous and peaceful 2011 and we do thank you for your business.
  • We will be attending the annual ATA Archery Trade Show in Indianapolis, USA from January 6-8 and look forward to reporting to you, on new products and innovations.
  • Gift Certificates BONUS! For the rest of December, Abbey Archery Gift Certificates will carry a 5% bonus. e.g. buy a $100.00 gift certificate in this period and your recipient will be able to redeem the certificate on $105.00 of goods and shipping costs. Pay $100 and get $105 of value! Certificates can be redeemed up to 12 months from date of purchase.
