Was just pondering the above question??? How long has Winchester been in archery? Went to there web sight, but it doesn't offer too much information. I came to this forum, and there are only 4 posts. Why so little popularity?
They seem to be great bows. I recently purchased a Winchester Thunderbolt for my 10yo daughter after searching for cams to reduce the DL on a Hoyt Kobalt. I purchased the Hoyt from a friend thinking my daughter could use it, but it just didn't work out. Too bad because the Hoyt is in new condition. I could not find the cams and after thinking about what it was going to cost (after cams, cables, and string) to do the switch over; I found this bow at a local gun shop that is getting out of the bow business. I thought it was a good deal at $150. We have it all set up now and she is slinging arrows now. She loves it and I love the fact that she should be able to use this bow forever! There is more adjustment in this one bow than any other bow I have seen. I shot it to get it sighted in and it is smooth and quiet. They had two "adult" bows left (can't remember the model) at half price. Was thinking of buying one, but funds are a little low.
After kids; a lot of stuff got sold. Including the High Country Sniper I had. Now that my daughter is all about deer hunting; it's a little easier for the wife to loosen the purse strings; FOR HER, NOT DAD! Been out of archery for a while, and it is amazing at what is out there now. The price of bows have gone out the roof since then as well. So long story short; how can Winchester sell a good bow (in my opinion) less expensive than other manufacturers and why so little popularity?
