Reviews about TLC Archery
- Brian RossiniOct, 25 2018★ ★ ★ ★ ★Unreal customer service and attention to detail.
Thom will go as deep into the rabbit hole of archery as you want to go, offering unbiased and profoundly expert advice all along the way. He and his wife are both experienced target shooters, members of various clubs and associations, and kind people.
Thom listened to my desired use-case for my bow, my budget constraints, my previous experience (none), and offered clear choices between price brackets. He educated me about the differences between all the bows I was looking at, and about bows he does not carry.
After spending an hour feeling different bows in my hand with no real intent to purchase, one specific model caught my attention and I actually decided to "pull the trigger" and purchase! We then spent the next three hours meticulously setting up the bow for me. He "re-served" the string (protective wrapping), installed various gadgets, a peep sight, and spent time coaching me on how to properly draw and shoot.
I spent about an hour alone just shooting arrows with Thom. He offered advice on every aspect of preparation for a shot, shooting form, and how to let the bow do the work once you've decided to let fly! It's exhilarating! After that hour, I kid you not, I was placing arrows in a 4" pattern at 20 yards, and a 1.5' pattern at 60 yards. He also decided to change the types of arrows I was using and for some reason that also made me more accurate.
I could NOT have had that experience shopping out of a magazine, and there is no retail establishment that even has the level of knowledge of the sport to give a shopping experience like this. I'm invited back to shoot some more arrows and get more tips from Thom and other enthusiasts.
If you even Think you might like archery, give yourself a chance to appreciate it and drive to see Thom. Call first - the place is down a gated ranch road and you'll need the gate code:)
And I realize this sounds like an ad that someone might have paid me to write, but if you look me up we can talk till your ear falls off!... I love this place.
(Side-note: several accomplished marksmen have emerged from the TLC Archery establishment, and it's clear why. They get constant "TLC". While I was there, a few people came through and loosed some arrows at the targets that are always set up and ready, and tuned their bows.)
