Concept Bows Are The Best Built
I own 2 Concept Archery Bows.After going through the 3D season with my Orion and the hunting season with my P50,I have got to say that I have not shot a better built,better performing bow.
I have owned
Long ago a PSE.
I still have most of the bows in my garage,hanging on nails.
My comment is not just out of hand,but one made of solid comparison.
If you get a chance to try a Concept bow,I think you may like them as much as I do.

If you believe Concept is the best, more power to you.

To say any bow is the best is simply your opinion. My guess is most would disagree!!

I checked out concepts website. The funniest thing I saw was the picture of the girl Sierra. I know her and she shoots a bowtech.

I have been to the Concept place in Bassett,Ne. saw all the raw parts,high quality finish before coloring. Yes they have Barnsdale 6ply limbs.

I shot one at the ASA Classic this year.. It shot ok but I just did not like the feel of it. I hope you have success with it.

Hopefully the bows are better than their website.
December 9th, 2006, 10:59 PM
....i could only find one bow on their web site?

No kidding. I built a more functional webpage in 8 hours in my entry level MIS course for college.

I talked to Sierra tonight and not only does she not shoot a Concept bow she never has and she didnt ok them to use that picture of her they have on the website. THIS RAISES QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR INTEGTITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dont think I need to look into them any further.

I machined the Riser and cams for concept, thanks for the plug on the finish.

Guess I just like to give my work and materials away.
P.S. I hope Barnsdale is getting his money.

December 11th, 2006, 07:15 PM
huuuuummmm......sounds just like Larry cf copeland out of ok.he shoots a 99%...
December 11th, 2006, 07:55 PM
I am glad you like them
And so is Concept I guess

I believe this guy. Concept is out of money and everyone is either laid off or working a couple short days a week. Concept also bought Cornhusker String factory and those strings are the pits.

The other stinger is the fact that the town of Bassett did not want the bow dipping process in town, that really hurt as well.
Damn shame like I said, the bow does show promise. Awful tough these days

read your own post once in a while
Concept Archery is doing fine...
There has been some reorganizations.
After reading this thread I am amazed how passionate people get about issues that are not related to the original post thereby hijacking the post guess I don't need to read any posts from those thread hijackers or look into their integrity
Yeah I know this is an old thread but it is a fine example of opinion vs quesion asked
