I haven't had anything but good interactions with Primos...before the sell and after the sell. As for Mathews vs. Bear, it is a business, and business revolves around money. You can hang your hat on anything you like but businesses and money go hand in hand. Part of it... dry.gif

I believe Primos phrased it somethig like this: the decesion was based on benifit to our shareholders...
Primos has never built their own bow to my knowlege.
Bear Archery did the design, production and marketing of the Truth line of bows.
I currently own and shoot the '07 Truth. It will be a few more years before I cash that one in!


Yes, this is correct, Primos just got their name put on a bow that was made by Bear Archery. And before that PSE owned the contract to use the Primos name and they came out with a Primos Bow.

That is part of the problem. When Mr. Will Primos sold his company, it became about a bunch of investors, and sadly enough it will only be a matter of time before their products as well as customer service begin to suffer.

Primos has been switching bow companies way before he sold out. Off the top of my head I can remember them shooting Golden Eagle, PSE, Archery Research, Bear, and now Mathews. I don't understand what the big deal is with them not shooting Bear bows anymore?? Nobody said anything when they dropped PSE or Golden Eagle.

Matthews, PSE, Hoyt and Martin are all big names today; however, Bear has name recognition that transcends beyond archers. Virtually anyone with even remote association with the hunting world knows the name “Bear”.

I would venture to say that if you took one hundred non-hunting Americans off of the street and asked them “Who makes archery equipment in the United States?” ninety nine percent of those who could give an answer would say “Bear”.

When I have my new design patented, I will offer it to Bear Archery first.

I may not be Native American but I have Bear in my heart.

I do not think Mathews will put the primos name on anything... Look at the People that are shooting mathews bows...Lee and Tiff, Primos, driven, in pursuit, night and hale, wild outdoors, and the white tail freaks crew just to name a few... and the have yet to come out with any signature bows. They sell their bows based on their innovation and the fact that all of those people are shooting them.... I have a question about Primos camo??? since they are now wearing under armor what are they wearing mathews bows are lost camo and most of the UA is realtree apg... did they split with mossy oak?

I dont care what bow they shoot, In my experience, shoot whatever feels good. all bows on the upper end ,no matter who makes them, perform pretty much the same. My experience with business is when a company sells their interest to a group of investors, products, followed by customer service begin to suffer.

Is it bow season yet?

As far as I know nothing has changed with Primos & MossyOak unless it happens for 2011 and I kinda doubt that since Primos & MossyOak have a long standing relationship.
As far as bow companies go, anytime a big video/tv crew like Primos changes bow companies everyone screams that they are a sell out...If Lee & Tiff show up shooting Hoyt next year they will hear the same thing. It happened with the Drury boys when they went to PSE after years with Hoyt...It's nothing more than business, anyone of us would do the same if we got offered a huge money contract to shoot for another company. I shoot for Athens Archery but I'm not gonna lie, if Mathews or anyone else called tomorrow and said "We'll give you X amount of dollars to shoot our bow" I'd have to really consider it...You gotta pay the bills, plus everyone builds good bows these days so it's hard to get a junky bow.

Agreed!

I still shoot my STL. I bought it because of the fit, ease of shooting, and price point. I'm just a Joe Average dragging my butt to the woods as often as I can. I want something that shoots well and is affordable. I can't see my money going to a Mathews. I'll stay with what I have for now. If I ever change it might be for a Bowtech or a Diamond. I've shot them a couple of times and liked them.
