It is not just Mathews.Why doesn't Mathews allow dealers to sell bows online? I don't have dealers near me.
Exactly. Mathews is not the only company that has a policy like this. It's called dealer support, after all it is the pro shops that helped put them where they are. If you start doing it across the net you tend to loose control of your product. My view.It is not just Mathews.
Manufacturers believe that a dealer will make sure the bow is set up correctly and fitting the archer. Probably to reduce the amount of warranty and failure issues and give the company control on prices..
