Bow Trial Program
The best way to evaluate a bow is to play it for yourself. That's why we offer this bow trial program! Just complete the information, above, and click Add To Cart. Then select Checkout (no PayPal please), to provide us with your address and payment information. Feel free to select Free Shipping during checkout, and we'll send the bows by USPS Priority Mail. When we receive your trial request, we'll contact you by phone to discuss your particular goals and what bows/makers/models are most likely to work well for you.
The cost of the initial trial is $20.00. If you choose to keep one of the bows, we'll credit $20.00 toward the price of the bow. If you don't find a bow you like, just send the bows back to us using the pre-paid return label that we provide.
We cover the cost of shipping both ways. We'll send the bows to you via USPS Priority Mail. We do require a signature upon delivery. But, if you don't happen to be at home, you'll be able to pick up the package at your local post office, at your convenience. With the trial, you'll find a pre-paid label for returning the bows, when you're ready. Just apply the label and take to your local post office or give to your postal carrier.
When will I get my bows?
Shipping time will depend on the availability of the bows selected. Many trials ship with bows from our inventory within a day or two. However, if we feel that a particular bow will work well for you, but don't happen to have it in stock, we may obtain if for you from the maker or distributor especially for your trial. There is no additional charge for this service, but it can add a week or so to the shipping time. (Note: This service is not offered for all brands and manufacturers, and is at our discretion.) We'll be happy to discuss shipping times in more detail during the phone consultation. Once shipped, trials typically arrive in 2-3 days.
Once you've had the bows in your possession for a full week, we ask that you return them so that we can service other customer requests. Shipping time is not counted as part of the seven days. If a few extra days would be helpful, just send us an email. We are usually able to approve a short extension.
Payment for Bows Purchased
Please refer to the order form included with the trial for pricing. If you choose to purchase a bow, please indicate this on the order form and return with any bows that you choose not to keep. When we receive the returned trial, we'll charge the purchase price to the credit card that you used to purchase the trial. If you prefer to pay via a different card or other method, just give us a call. We'll be happy to arrange payment by whatever method works best for you.
May I have bows shipped to a different address?
For security reasons, we require that the bows ship to your credit card billing address. Sorry, this is a policy for which we do not make exceptions.
Can I arrange a second trial with different bows?
Certainly! Additional trials can usually be arranged. But, please note that the initial trial fee covers only a fraction of our actual costs for shipping and insurance. For additional trials, we do charge a higher trial fee ($35.00). Regardless of the number of trials, one total credit of $20.00 will go toward the purchase price, if a bow is selected. Please stay in touch with us by email to let us know how the trial is going, and to request additional trials.
