I heard from my local shop that since it carries Mathews bow, they basically have an agreement to not carry Bowtech, Diamond and Hoyt. Sounds like they force the shops into basically only selling mathews. I went to this shop who is listed as a Martin dealer, he told me he can't have a bow in his shop, but he could order it for me.

I've only seen one Mathews dealer around here that didn't carry other brands. That was by choice.... :noidea:

Not true, local shop has Mathews and Bowtech. I have seen plenty that carry Mathews along with another major brand. Your dealer just doesn't want the others for whatever reason, probably the money involved in keeping stock up and a lower profit margin based on his mark up.

Let me guess, his Mathews are probably right around $759-$799 right?

Or...there are other Bowtech dealers in the area. Bowtech protects dealer areas as does Mathews, and Hoyt to a point.

I was told by my local Mathews dealer that everything he sells in his shop had to be O.K.'d by Mathews before he was allowed to sell it. He was talking about everything from Scentlock suits too hunting videos. I'm kinda glad he does'nt sell bowtech, I dont like the Mathews attitude that people have that shot and hang around in his shop. I drive almost an hour to shot indoors just so I dont have to put up with their B.S.

The shop does carry PSE, Bear, Reflex, and Hoyt....just not Bowtech, I wonder why.

Hmmm, the shop I go too has Mathews, Hoyt and Bowtech not to mention other brands.

Another shop near me the same deal. Mathews sitting right next to Hoyts on the rack.

He is indeed yanking your chain. Its his choice to not carry more brands.

I'm not sure your pro-shop is being truthful with you. I know of a number of shops that carry Mathews, Hoyts and Bowtech. The shop owners can carry other lines if they want too.

I highly doubt Matt Mcpherson tells dealers what else they can sell next to his bows. Think about it, do you think Matt has time to look at every piece of inventory a Pro Shop has and then give the green light to sell their bows in their shops? Then if something is not o.k. tell them to remove it? Your dealer is mistaken.

Matt is too busy building bows and guitars! Yes guitars as that is another McPherson business! :)

As for that Mathews attitude, that is just that particular person who happens to own one, I own a Mathews but could care less what another person shoots, as long as their an archer their cool with me! :wink:

Must be a Hoyt and bowtech shop close. If not I would drop Mathews and carry the other two. Mathews make a good bow but at least at my shop Hoyt and bowtechs out sell Mathews.

at the shop i go to they carry mathews, hoyt, bowtech, parker, bear, and i think there might be one other one there too. They just picked up the hoyt and bowtech lines because another dealer in the area went out of business and that opened up the area for another dealer to sell them.

I've been in ALOT of shops that carry Mathews but still sell Hoyt, Martin, Bowtech, Bear and other brands...I think your dealer is feeding you a line of bull.

Good rumors...

Any shop that just carries Mathews is by choice, and nothing else.

The smaller shops mathews wants them to carry mathews only .. the larger shops can get away with telling them to jump in a lake,, two shop here I know the owners and they were told their mathews dealership would be gone if they carried other brands.. One still carries mathews only the other one has every brand but mathews..

The shop I use has Mathews, Bowtech, Diamond, Hoyt and Bear. I don't know how they do it where your from, but they go by distance here. If there is only one shop in a certain radius, they will have all brands. If there is more than one, they might have one or two brands.

Not true. There is a shop around here that is Bowtech and Mathews and another that is Mathews and Hoyt.

Not true, but it has nothing to do with Mathews. Hoyt or Bowtech may already have dealers in the area or not want this shop to carry their brand for another reason. I have seen lines pulled from shops before because the shop was incompetent(not saying this is the case here)
