Why does Kai trust Aim Archery? - “Having firsthand experience in watching the staff at Aim Archery do what they do, with their comprehensive knowledge of any type of bow they can all give fantastic advice to customers from a beginner to a more experienced level. One of the key aspects of high level compound archery is the precision of equipment and I completely trust the staff at Aim Archery with my equipment, without their knowledge I would not be at the level I am today. Not only are the staff helpful and charismatic about the sport of Archery, the prices are competitively priced with the ‘price match promise’ policy. “

All of the above, whilst having lots of fun with great people at great tournaments!

Anything else you would like to say?

I am fortunate to have been involved in our sport for the past 21 years.
Over this time, the main piece of advice I have learnt, and would offer to any archer, is to ensure that your archery kit fits you and your needs correctly.

Too often I have seen archers purchase equipment with little advice or guidance, only for them to find the kit doesn’t meet their needs. They become despondent, and often leave the sport after only a short time.

My recommendation would be to always visit a local pro shop when purchasing archery equipment.
This is where Aim Archery excels in the UK archery market!

A shop with knowledgeable, experienced members of staff who will not only ensure the kit you purchase is right for you, but will also assist you in getting it perfectly set up and tuned. 
With their excellent price match promise, great finance options, and the ability to trade in unwanted equipment, Aim Archery is the place to head for all your archery needs!
