i test drove a widoww bow in their shop one time when we were visiting that area. it was convenient that there was a thrift store across the street that my wife went to. yes i did get the bow ,a 60" sa11! and it has put a lot of venison in the freezer.

I don't live near their shop. I tried it, worked for me, it is the best hunting bow I could have asked for.

I'm lucky enough to live within about 2.5 hrs from Nixa, and last year, I made the drive up there. Roger helped me, and I shot several bows, for probably 3 hours or more. I ended up buying one off of the rack, before I left.

All I can say is, if you can make the trip to their shop, that's the best way to go.

If you do however, I suggest you bring your own arrows that are spined for about the draw weight you are interested in. They supplied me a couple or three arrows, to shoot with at first and I couldn't hit crap with them, so I went out to my truck and got some arrows, I had, and presto! I started shooting decently. If I had asked, Roger might have found me some more compatible arrows, but I suggest you bring your own, if you have any that's close to what you think you will be shooting.

Also, just FYI, they do have a target down the hallway that you can shoot at, but they also finally told me about a target out back, behind the shop, and that was much better for testing bows.

All I can say is if you live within a couple of tanks of gas, just drive over there, if you are serious, but don't really know what you want.

Great program, In 1997 I test drove a Longbow with the specs I wanted. Played with the bow for 2 weeks, sent the bow back and ordered a brand new one excatly how I wanted it with my name on it.

I test drove one a week ago, just called them up and told them what I was looking for, paid the cost of the bow and it arrived 2 days later, shot it for a few days and sent it back UPS with the included labels It was super easy

Don't test drive it. You will buy one. Can't beat a Wider

I bought a like new one t/d, to see how they are. They’re great if that’s what you like. I can only say good things about BW in general. I use their Skin tight glove and love it.
