  • Hoyt Not Made In USA????

    On every other bow spec page, other than pg 43 of the 2013 catalogue, Hoyt's bows feature the Made In USA logo. Does this mean the GMX, Horizon Pro, Horizon and Excel are made offshore or is it a misprint.

    Shoot X's

    I think you find for a while that all Hoyt dia cast risers are not made in good old USA. I think I read some where when the Eclipse recurve riser 1st model the reason why it was diconnued was due to that China factory going bust & had to get another 1 to do hence a couple of years break between & the adjustable limb aligment system

    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us that who do

      Got to love the Internet. No Hoyt bow is or has been made anywhere other than the USA.

        I have very good faith in Hoyt risers, but I do not feel the same about their limbs. Maybe it's my country's climate, but we seem to have plenty of limb failures from normal usage, things like catastrophic failures, cracks, delaminations, I'm talking about CX and TX. Compared to the zero failure rate (within the country) so far of a W&W EX series and WINEX. It wasn't so during the early days of Carbon Syntactic, FX and such.

          Maybe this was for you GT, not Andy!

              I take it that he's from another dimension with different laws of physics.

                  Sounds like a South Korean government conspiracy involving W&W to sabotage all foreign archers. Wouldn't happen with the North koreans.... They're decent hard working folks ready to lay down their lives for the Glorious People's Comrade.

                    I saw pair of Hoyt 900's which failed before even drawing first time. The limb tip fell off while stringing...

                      Thought that would have been the case, so I guess it's a proof reading mistake that it's the only page without the Made In USA logo. Thanks for clearing at up gt
