    I’m becoming upset with my dealer as time goes by – doesn’t really matter why, thing is, how do I get my bow serviced or anything, if my dealer dropped dead tomarrow, closed shop, went bankrupt, or whatever, there isnt a Mathews dealer within 75 miles from me or more – what to do?

    start servicing your own bow, get your self a press and some tools and you’re good to go…. [=}=]

    If doing your own work doesn’t suit you, then arrange with a Pro Shop to ship your bow for service. There are a number on the internet that make such arrangements. I recommend The Bow Rack[/i:a8ckvgp8] in Eugene OR since they do excellent work and can also perform Mathews warranty service.

    Thanks…will take both options into consideration. (may get a press and perhaps a how-to book, been a bike mechanic nearly 38 years – this shouldnt be to much different or difficult).

    Thanks, J

    Honestly, unless you need warranty other shops CAN work on Mathews bows.
    Also finding different shops helps spread work around. If the local Mathews dealer isnt any good, his business WILL go down, then maybe another shop can take over Mathews dealership.
    Your profile doesnt say where your located, checking on Mathews site on dealer locator may turn up someone you didnt know was a dealer.
    Also googling archery supplies in your area might turn up someone. Also maybe checking over on AT(spit, spit) asking for dealers near you might turn up some more dealers of all types.
    A good shop should be able to handle basic service.
    Good Luck
