Changes at RAD - Broadheads
« on: April 20, 2016, 02:14:48 AM »
Over the course of the past couple years we have struggled to find suppliers who share our dedication to quality standards and on time delivery.  So sixteen months ago my brother and I began building a new manufacturing facility in Kent, WA that would allow us to control all major manufacturing of our peep sight and broadhead assemblies.  We are happy to announce that this new facility is now operational and we are producing some of the finest parts I have seen come through for my inspection.  The old saying, "If you want things to be done right, do them yourself" has never rang so true!

Our Orange, NJ strip grinding facility has also seen some major improvements over the past year.  The rebuild and repair of the grinding machine has been completed, we have obtained greatly improved grinding wheels, and improvements to the DelMastro and VanDyke blade dies have been a great success.  We are receiving new HPV blades this week and will have both the LPS and LPV to the improved quality standards within the next month.  Soon our broadheads, like our peep sights, will have no equal in quality standards and timely deliveries.

We have invested a lot to improving our successful little company Radical Archery Designs.  Long hours, cancelled Stone Sheep hunts, sleepless nights, sacrificing salary and financial security during this process looks to be paying off.  Not only for us as owners, but for you the customer that demands the absolute best.  We hope you will see the difference both in our products and in your success.

Through this process we have been getting demands to separate ourselves from the inconsistent quality and delivery of the broadheads origin.  We changed designs, worked with Del DelMastro and Larry VanDyke to create a whole new standard of reliability and performance with todays bows and arrows, adopted Easton's Deep Six compatibility and embraced titanium when other companies claimed it was too difficult to work with.  We set demanding standards for quality control few even attempt to match.  It has now become a broadhead company worthy of the same moniker as our industry leading peep sights - "Radical Archery Designs".

So, today we start a new chapter by bring our broadhead line officially into the RAD, Inc. family.  Within the next week the official www.radicalarchery.com website will combine both our peep sights and our new "RAD Broadheads".  The previous broadhead site will be closed down and the new branding will get into full swing.  Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will also reflect bringing everything into the RAD, Inc. family.  MLBowhunting and I will try to keep everyone updated as these changes are made.

I thank all of you who follow us closely for your patience as we make the appropriate online and social media changes.  It is going to be one exciting year!

In addition to our RAD Broadheads name change we are finalizing a number of new TV/YouTube partnerships, improving existing partnerships and are setting the ground work for an Ambassador and Field Force program. 

Our goal is to start taking resumes and applications for the Ambassador and Field Force staff positions on June 1st of this year.  In the following weeks I will supply links where you can find rules, responsibilities and applications for those interested in these programs.  RAD, Inc. will have a limited number of these positions available so keep checking in as early birds will have the best chance at success. 

Within the next few days I will start to post the changes we have made to the 2016 peep and broadhead lines.  We have new packaging, new ferrule profiles for the MadMan, Deep Six versions of the 100 grain DelMastro and VanDyke series, a new 125 grain DelMastro and VanDyke, two new Crossbow specific broadheads and a complete redesign of the 85 grain MadMan and Triple Sec. ferrules so we can replace the aluminum collars with stainless steel.  The new MadMan four blade ferrules have also been upgraded with stainless steel collars.

We are getting pretty excited around here.  Hope you are too!

Way to go, Rad. I can't wait to see the new products.

Very cool!
Why Kent if i may ask? I can think of lots of other places that i would put my business.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Kick A$$!  That is very cool.  I suppose the old packages with the old name are going to be an antique item now  :chuckle:

obviously by posting at 2:15AM you are having sleepless nights.

Congrats  :tup:  on the exciting news and while I currently do not bow hunt(rarely target shooting only). I do own a bow and have already picked up one of your peeps for my soon to get new string. I will definitely give your broadheads a chance.
