Borkholder Archery is based in Northern Indiana where the the owner has been an avid bowhunter for years and in 1998 set apart a corner in his garage to start a bow shop. Today Borkholder Archery has grown into a complete pro bow shop offering crossbows, compound bows, traditional bows, and archery accessories.
There's two parts, the online store and product reviews and then the local shop where you can talk to the technicians face to face and join archery leagues or receive professional coaching. Every season Borkholder's is always looking to offer new services like coaching and new products with the latest technology.
The largest archery inventory in the Midwest!
The Online Store
You'll notice four main categories under the shop menu: crossbows, traditional bows, archery accessories, and clothing. Why is compound bows not included? The manufacturers of the compound bows do not allow bow shops to sell their products online. The one exception is Diamond's Infinite Edge which is a complete hunting package with arrows, quiver, rest, sight, stabilizer, and sling. There are some low quality manufacturers that do allow selling online but our focus is products our technicians use and trust.
In the future it's very likely that more compound bows will be available for online sale and follow the trend of the crossbow market which has few restrictions which is why we can offer them for online sale. We could not be more satisfied with our partners in the crossbow market and we'll continue to produce videos with reviews and tips on the performance of these powerful machines.
New for 2014! ASAT camo is now available to purchase online at great prices. The popular products are available and as time goes on more clothing products will be added. The quality of ASAT impresses our technicians and we'll be adding additional brands as long as they meet our standard of durability and comfort. Send a Facebook message if there's a brand you'd like to see added.
Accessories are broken into three categories for crossbows, compound bows, and traditional archery. We are still working on adding more accessories and that will be happening over the summer and as new products are released. The Excalibur accessories are under crossbows > Excalibur category because their are many products that are specific to their crossbow models. Fuse is our primary accessory brand and be sure to watch the video on the product page of a technician explaining the use of the product. The goals is to have a complete lineup of accessories from each of the top manufacturers and as the relationships are built you'll start seeing more products available for sale.
The Pro Bow Shop
It was only in the past few years that Borkholder's moved into the online store business and the Pro Bow Shop is still the highest priority. Our goal is to have a local customer base built on trust and relationships, to improve current services, and to offer new services that are valuable to our customers. One step we've taken is to hire a professional archery coach which will be starting training in Spring of 2014.
The current services include cam replacement, re-stringing bows and crossbows, trigger repair, tuning, and scope/sight sighting.
