  • NEWSFLASH. Abbey Archery’s initial order of 2012 Hoyt bows arrived in our Sydney store today and should be in our Brisbane store by Monday next! If you are around Sydney or Brisbane, feel free to drop in and test fire the new bows. The 2012 Hoyt range of compound and recurve bows is a "knock your socks off" line up. Arguably the highlight is the Hoyt Carbon Element RKT with a smoking 330fps speed, only 32" A to A and an unbelievable weight of just 3.6 pounds. Abbey staff are now reviewing the 2012 Hoyt bows, all powered by the new RKT Cam and a Half system with its improved draw cycle which is pretty impressive. So far, we have reviewed the Hoyt Vector 32, the Carbon Element RKT and the Hoyt Vector Turbo, with an aluminium riser that shoots an actual speed of 340fps! We will continue to update the page today, as we review more bows. Check our comments and pictures at 2012 BOW PREVIEWS and also follow our reviews on Abbey Archery's Face Book page this afternoon as our staff post their expert opinions of the 2012 Hoyt range.

  • Another Hoyt order arrived this week and we have plenty of Hoyt bows. Many of the Hoyt models are some of the most popular bows we have experienced and if you need a Hoyt, you need to buy from Abbey where we give free lifetime service while you own the bow. We stand behind our bows and back it up with service that is second to none.

Without this service many competitors would have been left unable to complete the competitions. We look forward to your continued support of Australian Archery." The letter has taken pride of place on our wall in our Brisbane and Sydney stores. Our Abbey Archery shooters and our staff were in attendance throughout the events and helped many archers with repairs, tuning and advice.

Controlling heavy sewing machines and still producing quality, neat leatherwork is not easy. If you need new gloves or a beautifully locally made back or side quiver, you can't go past our JMR accessories.

  • Hoyt have opened a new factory complex in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. This facility is arguably the most advanced bow manufacturing operation in the world, where Hoyt bows are brought to life from raw materials, to the finished products. Unlike other bow manufacturers who must outsource their anodising process, Hoyt anodise or paint their target risers in-house, so quality control is closely monitored. Check out the new Hoyt manufacturing story.
