Ross

8 posts in this topic

Anybody else shooting a Ross? I bought the cardiac 2 summers ago and love it. Kind of a bummer when they sold out.

Ross ran his own company into the ground, but they were at the ATA show - somebody bought them or is still offering them, I think maybe Bowtech

Don't quote me on this but I believe Quest Archery may have bought Ross...the only reason I say this is because a buddy of mine broke a limb on his Cardiac. The new limbs say Quest Archery on them. I believe it is G5 who is the parent company of Quest. They are selling the rest of the Ross stock under the Quest Label.

G5 was making parts for Ross. Part of the contract was that if Ross didn't pay their bills they were to get inventory back and could put out their own bow. Don't quote me either, but I am quite sure G5 didn't buy Ross...

Go to Bowtech Archery WEB sight and you'll see they now are the parent company for Ross just as they are for Diamond.

Yes sir. I just got my 09 Cardiac 31 last week and boy she is a shooter. And also Bowtech did pick up Ross and the 09 line-up is under the name Ross by Bowtech, just like Diamond is.

You can get a new in box non-Bowtech Ross Cardiac and some CR models for about 300 bucks right now. These bows were more than double that cost last year.

No warranty would be an issue for some but who cares for that price. I haven't had any problems with my CR 337 in the three years and many shots I have put through it.

Bowtech is now building ross bows. They do not own ross nor did they purchase any of ross's liabilities or previous patents. They have no obligation to honor the old ross warranties but they purchased back some old bows from dealers in exchange for the new ross models to stockpile parts to honor warranties the best they can. They will also work with the customer to get them into a new bow for a CHEAP price should a customer have issues with the old model ross bows. Andy ross is still a part of ross bows. he now works for bowtech and helps with the promotion of the new ross line. Also he did not run the company into the ground as some people think. there was a misunderstanding of a tax law that once he paid the bill for it he fell behind in his payments a small amount and G5 used the parts they made with his patents to launch their own bow line. im not blaming either company of any wrongdoing. if anyone else has any questions i'd be happy to fill you in on all the details.

P.S. yes I do shoot a Ross among several others. My CR334 has been my go to hunting bow for the past 4 seasons though. Smooth and quiet!

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
