    I had a shop that was going to take me on as a staff shooter. They unfortunately do not carry a large selection of Mathews bows and was told by Mathews that because of their small Mathews inventory, they would not provide them with any incentives.

    Given the choice of shooting another brand, I declined. Not because I am against any brand, simply because the Mathews bows I have are exactly what I am looking for. They are quiet, smooth, vibration free and a quality feel that I just don’t find in a lot of other manufacturers.

    Even though I am not a shooter for this shop, I will let anyone who shows an interest shoot my bow. Maybe if enough of them go into the shop and ask about the Mathews bows, they will start to carry more of them instead of pushing those Bowtechs and Hoyts on people.

    If they gave me a Vulcan to shoot with, not a problem, that is the only Hoyt bow I care for.

    In all honesty, you got to shoot what your comfotable with, not with something that might give you a few perks. Sometimes you have to pass by the best in life, and there just might be something better in the future! [=}=]

    I am in the exact same boat as you and chose to go with the hoyt and keep my Mathews at the same time. I think Hoyts are fine bows :thumbup

    If a shop offered me a staff shooting position, I’d be looking for the cameras. Somebody is about to get punked.

    The point has been made. If you are going to receive compensation for representing a company, you’d better do it. There will most likely be times you have to swallow your tongue.[/quote:2u3bvbdt]

    At our local shoots I only see one Mathews Sponsored shooter, but you can’t throw a stick without hitting a Hoyt or Bowtech shooter.

    Are those other guys that much more aggressive with their grass roots program? I would like to see more Mathews shooters, even possibly myself one day …….when I grow up?, get big? learn to shoot? :oops:

    So is there anyone out there that can answer this question?? How do Mathews grassroots/amateur sponsorships work (If there is any)?

    Co-Op program does exist, I’ve never been on the Mathews staff at any level so I can’t speak from experience, but several of my students are on various shop programs with Mathews. I don’t ask for details on these deals because often times the contracts prohibit discussing details
