Great Customer service, large stock, 2 shooting ranges, lots of fun
GO ELSE WHERE!
Took a brand new.
GO ELSE WHERE!
Took a brand new bow in with sight, rest, and stab. Told a teen kid (that boasted how he can shoot any thing and take care of anything on any bow) that I needed my new bow setup for me to go shooting and if they can get everything installed and setup and sighted. He assured me that, that's what they do. 5 days later I came back to get my ready to shoot bow. I was told he needed to install a Peep (Ok expected that), a wrist sling (ok what ever), a new/different D-loop, and had to buy string wax. Ok, fine...
Then I asked so how far did they sight it in for. He told me, they cant actually align the sight or do any shooting of it. That everyone is different, bla, bla, bla... I asked then what did they do? Just bolt on everything and charge me for it. He said I can go back and use the range to sight it in. I explained I was a beginner and that I Needed someone else to do that and that's why I went to them. And that he was able to do all that he said.
I left with a bow that was no better for me then when I dropped it off, OR ACTUALLY WORST!
I took it to Bass Pro Shops (A Nice store I might add!) and they opened the case and said sure they can sight it in for 20-30 yards. He looked closer at the peep they put on. The windings around the string were Loose and then found that they also added some string around the power string/cable. He asked me why they had to so that. I looked and said I duh know?
They removed the added (Same color and texture as the peep added material and WAY different then the Martin stuff on the strings, and found that they must have cut the cable somehow and tried to fix it or HIDE it.
SO I just called Hitech. They were combative, argumentative, and rude on the phone saying that they would never do that, that they can't sight in the bow, and that they are much more qualified the Bass Pro Shops.
BOTTOM LINE, THIS PLACE EMPLOYS RUDE, LIEING AND POORLY TRAINED PEOPLE.

Great Store. I went in to Hi-Tech Archery one saturday afternoon to look a inexpensive bow to buy my son for his birthday. When I went in there was a few people in front of me so I walked around and looked at all the bows and arrows. About 5 minutes later a man I forget his name (an older white man with a beard) helped me. I told him I wanted to buy my son a bow, but he recommended that I bring him in before his birthday to take a lesson to see if he even likes bows and arrows. That way if he doesn't like bows and arrows I did not waste $200. So I brought my son in on Tuesday and he was really enjoying the lesson, so during the middle of the lesson I went downstairs and bought him a bow. Since then I have been bringing my son in twice a month for a lesson.
GOING THE DISTANCE.
I read the last review; Idon't know what they are talking about. I live L.A. county: l have two or three archery shops within 10 to 15 miles of my home; they are small and have low inventories, they don't have the selection or experence that Hi Tech Archery has. They answered all my questions. one ofthe emploies gave m a tour of there store; they have a two story building capable of having 15 to 20 stooters down stairs. there is a class room upstair larger to handle huge classes and parties, birthday and private. the teaching staff are trained at the olympic center.
So I ask you, dose this sound like a compamy that woul treat someone like they were not important?
Not what they say. I was treated badly by these people, as if they didn't want me in the shop even though I spent more than $100 within 10 minutes. Also I agree with other reviews which state that they are not forthcoming with info, even misleading, and seem to act like a new customer is just not part of their "club". It is interesting to note that after truthful reviews such as this one, suddenly there appears a whole slew of 5-star reviews that sound pretty contrived if you ask me. Nice try, but neither I nor my friends will ever spend another dime here.
decent service.. Hi-Tech keeps every piece of equipment in stock. I would not advice new shooters to purchase right away on equipment. I purchased a full recurve bow with their help and after 2-3 months or so, i have found that there were much better alternatives that they did not mention. Therefore having to pay up more. This is the ideal store for experienced shooters and know what they want. They have a great indoor range to shoot. The guys at Hi-Tech are great but could give more knowledge and advice to new shooters. Be aware that their return service can be dodgy.
Expected more, sadly dissapointed.. After reading all the great reviews on this establishment I decided to head there instead of a couple of smaller archery pro shops near me to gather info and purchase a bow as a new shooter. Sadly though my experience wasn't anywhere near what others have said. They didn't seem forthcoming on any information for a new shooter, gave no recomendations on any equipment, and basically left me to ask feeble questions, using my limited knowlege of recurves, in order to gather any info to start out. I felt very much as an outsider both times I went there. I would only recomend this place for somewhat knowlegable archers, but anyone new to the sport should maybe find an alternate pro shop for information or to be fitted for a recurve.
Its all there Profesional-Friendship-Quality-and the right prices !!! (complete package). You need it,they have it,or will find it for you fast.I've been shooting for about 3 years now,and wouldn't be at the level i'm at if it wasn't for Joe & Rick . The two of them have led me in the right direction in archery equipment and advice.They also have thier own line of Bows and acceseries ( KODIAK OUTDOORS) Take a HARD look at this product,quality and top of the line. -----------Big Jim-------------
