Name one? With the exception of Darton and Ameristep, most products are mom and pop operations with all aspects of the manufacturing taking place right here in MI.

Monster, Quest, or Strother. Rex Darlington is more concerned about banking on patent infringments then making a quality bow.

Battledrum wraps- Ive ordered several sets a custom designed wraps from them. Could'nt be happier.
Twitzed Strings- Got a string and cable set made from Sean, good prices, answers e-mails and phone calls. Picked up my bow from his house, and he even paper tuned it for me.

I have a the standard Wedge Loc and the Ghost, plus a set of the climbing sticks. This stuff will last me the rest of my life, it is the best hang on stand I have ever used. You can have then made to fit your height, which is important to me being a tall guy. Worth the money in my book.

I have learned some major players in the bow manufacturing world are having their risers cast/forged overseas then bringing them back to the US and running them through a machine to clean them up and putting made in the usa on the box...very misleading if you ask me, and others are casting their risers here and and touching them up on a machine and then saying they are not cast...(at least they are still made in the USA) but still misleading
