    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
    Hoyt
    Mathews
    Bowtech
    Martin
    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.

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

    Yes ,they are adjustable 80 or 99.I tried my bows set on both %
    No speed difference 99% great for target and I shot back tension. hunted with 80%,liked the 99% better.
    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 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.
    Unfortunatly Paul (Owner of concept) owes me $20,000 plus and it doesn't look like I'll get it the conventional way (something about not having money) Anyway I suppose the finish isn't going to be quite so nice from now on unless he can find another sucker like me. Guess I just like to give my work and materials away.
    P.S. I hope Barnsdale is getting his money.

    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.
    It's really unfortunate, because the bow does show some promise for sure. From what I understand from a couple people that work in the Bassett facility is this:
    The state of Nebraska promised a grant in "X" amount of dollars for moving the business there. BUT. it was contingent on having "X" amount of employees on hand. In any case, the money went out fast, but is coming back slow. Pretty simple economics really.
    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
    to start up a new business and survive (without an arse load of capital behind you).

    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
