I refuse to acknowledge the name change. Kareem is still Lew Alcindor, Ali is still Cassius Clay and Texas Archery is still BowZone.

You still yell "Go Oilers" and "Luv Ya Blue" at the Texans games?

Well, just got home from getting kiddos bow tuned after a minor "malfunction". Once again treated like royalty.

Special kudos to the crew who recognize my son and how much he's grown in the last year. "Dang he's gotten big!!"

Reasons why I'll continue to take my business an hour away.

Thanks again Joe and rich!

Good deal. It looks like he's going to be about six foot five. I watched Richard take the time to show a young man how to adjust the draw length on his bow. He could have just done it for him real quick but he handed him an allen wrench and walkedhim through it. That's good service.

After dealing with the rude, smart aleck kid at the local bow shop, I went back to Texas Archery (bow zone) after not being there for a while and I was blown away with the renovations and at how welcoming they still were.
That place is worth driving several hours to visit. I hope they never change.

Agreed. Joey has always acted like he really cares that you have the proper set up to fit you. Always super helpful. Hell I don’t have a negative thing to say about any one of’em.

Son had essentially dry fired the bow. Joey took it completely down, inspected and put it back together with new mods. Then he served in a new peep, his rest and helped sight him in. Between rounds Mrs. Pam re Fletched an arrow.

43 bucks for 2 hours of time and all that work.

Joey set my new elite up for me yesterday and we got it tuned. Spent about 1 1/2 with him and my bill was $42. That was $42 well spent.
