Ross

Recommended Posts

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!

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
