  • Saturday 25th February and Sunday 26th February 2012, Abbey Archery is attending the 2012 Archery Expo held at the Liverpool Catholic Club, cnr Joadja & Hoxton Park Roads, Liverpool, NSW. Stop by the Abbey Archery booth and say hello to our helpful staff.
  • We have just received some really cool gear like the S4 Gear Lockdown optics deployment system - allows you to draw your binos to your face with a single motion, without fighting additional tension, common with most bino systems. The Lockdown safely secures binos to your chest without permitting the swinging movement or bounce associated with traditional harness designs.
  • The S4 Gear JackKnife smartphone bow mount fits all bows and lets you view shot placement before you track your animal, records from the hunter's eyes - as you see it, review your shot form and use as a training device.
  • Arguably one of the niftiest pieces of equipment to come on the archery scene this year is the S4 Gear Sidewinder EVO 36 inch retractable tether system, which keeps everything from GPS, to rangefinders and radios safe, secure and always within reach. Has a quick detach to instantly release the tethered device in a single movement, strong security strap, quiet bulletproof kevlar cord, lever lock belt clip and rotating mounting system. All S4 Gear will be available at our booth to test and see what all the fuss is about.
  • We have stock of all the 2012 bow models on show and plenty of accessories to keep the average archer or bowhunter enthralled.
  • Our staff member, Grant Hughes is presenting seminars on both days. The subject on Saturday is titled "Plan your hunt" and covers a broad range of topics and presents tips on what to do and take.
  • The seminar on Sunday he presents an insight on making your hunting bow more accurate, quieter and more deadly when it comes time to take that shot of a lifetime. Grant tries to make his talks easy to understand, yet entertaining. We hope you will pick up some advice along the way at either of these seminars.

News for the week ending January 19, 2012

  • The 2012 ATA Trade Show, held in Columbus, Ohio, USA has just been concluded. Some observations we made: Your first impression when you walk into the ATA Show is you have arrived in archery heaven. There is an enormous array of gear, huge numbers of people, celebrities like Ted Nugent, many of whom are not known by us in Australia and New Zealand, booths chock-a-block with staff and products and the opportunity to shoot all the new bows.
  • People handing out every type of gimmick to get you to take a closer look at their new product can be a trifle overwhelming with flashing lights, amazing displays and interesting people everywhere you turn. Some booths have large posters of their celebrity TV bow hunters and when the celebrities are there at a signing, the queues can have up to 40 to 50 people waiting for an autograph, free cap, product or poster.
  • Some stand outs we liked. A new lighter, quieter and more functional quiver from Trophy Ridge that does not compromise strength and has 4 powerful green LED lights for safety and convenience. This quiver is made of ballistix copolymer, 25% lighter than aluminium, sure to be a big hit.
  • Easton showcased their ultra-narrow Injexion arrow with a .236" ultra-micro diameter, used by Olympic archers for downrange kinetic energy, but hard-hitting with stainless steel inserts for 65% more strength up front and 32% more impact resistance.
  • There were 12 morning seminars each day attended by over 300 daily, covering technical aspects of archery equipment, product knowledge, selling, marketing and business development and management. We sure packed a lot into the 3 days of the show.
  • There is a real sense of friendliness and genuinely wanting to impart their knowledge to you at the show and it is easy to start up a conversation when the booth knows you come from Down Under.
