Riverside Archery in Mt. Vernon
« on: September 11, 2018, 06:00:35 PM »
Anyone have experience with these guys, was looking to go down next week to get fitted for a bow but most likely find a used on online. This is my first bow, been a rifle hunter for many years.

Thanks!

Good people.
Why not buy from them.
I'm not sure.

Good to hear, wasn't ruling it out I just wanted to make sure it was a good shop to go to. We don't have any pro shops in Bellingham.

Great shop, they Support Silver Arrow Bowmen archery club. I bought my used switchback from them. They do have used bows from time to time. They do have some PSE that are reasonably priced... AND when you buy a bow from them they take really good care of you. Great customer service.

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.

Great guys, they have helped me a ton.  Donít be in a hurry, they can have longer waits, especially this time of year.

I'd recommend them. I went in about a month and a half ago to buy a new bow. I had already looked at the BowTech Realm over in Tri-Cities area and wanted to get one locally so I figured I'd work with them. They have a young guy, believe his name is Jake, who is very knowlegable on all the bows they offer and is not hard over on any particular brand (highly recommend working with him).  I ended up walking out with a Matthews TriAx fully rigged and was very happy with the entire expierence.   :tup: :tup:

Hope this helps and let us know how your expierence goes.  Always good to support local business.

They are one of the few Pro shops that offer both the Mathew  line and Bowtech. Those 2 brands are like a ford vs Chevy debate! :chuckle:

I know Jason, the son of the owner, he works at the shop personally from growing up in the area. He is a great guy, very friendly and knowledgeable. And if you need a wedding DJ he is your man!

Thanks everyone,

My budget is around $500 so that's why I was looking at a used bow from archeryalk or somewhere

I bought mine used from Archery Talk and had riverside fit it, set up arrows, a rest and sight.

I ended up with a high end bow for the cost of an entry level.

I purchase all my bows from Gary.  Top notch service.  I would definitely recommend using him.
