Went last night for the lesson provided gratis upon purchase of a new bow. I had previously exchanged some informative emails with Jared there, (who replies within a work day) and ten days ago spent a long time selecting my first compound with Craig. My friend and hunting partner, who helps DEC Hunter Safety provide some of the certificate courses at Smith Point Archery, and I, had discussed what I was looking for in a bow, and presented this rough list to Craig when I showed up. While Craig could have gone to a more expensive line, he instead felt that the more adaptable bow, keeping in mind my parameters and preferences, was probably the Martin Cougar package. ( I did not express any manufacturers preference and by mere chance, which no one knew, my recurve is a Martin.) Craig explained the various upgrades that I could and should consider, some of which I selected such as tool-less adjustable sights, a better stabilizer, an adjustable release, etc. Again, this was dealing with a fellow archer and not a salesman, and hopefully the owner of Smith Point Archery, if he sees this, will understand my intent and compliment. Although I showed up on an afternoon during bowhunting season, I went off for a Carvel next door, while Dave the mechanic immediately went to work setting up my bow. Upon returning, still another archer there, Tim, set me up at the large indoor range where I shot my first arrows from a compound bow. Getting back to last night's lesson, it was practically a private hour plus lesson as Craig had just myself and one other gentleman in the classroom/range, while Craig's wife assisted a young lady with her own lesson. I fired away until my shoulder was thoroughly fatigued, lol, and not due to any time constraints, all the while being advised by Craig with release, follow through, grip, etc. I can definitely see availing myself of the free range time also provided upon purchase, of a year's duration, this winter trekking out to Patchogue. (for those interested or influenced, its 200 yards west of 112 on East Main St.) I might mention that living in Nassau there were a couple of closer shops I could journey to, but unlike them, I had never heard a single negative about Smith Point.

Very nice. I am planning on getting into archery again, after a long hiatus and bringing my son to see if he likes it. This story has made up my mind of where I will be going.

Smith Point is the best, period.
I just bought my son the Martin Cougar from Jeff. An awesome bow at a great price point. It's at 45lbs right now but as he gets older it can be adjusted to 60lbs.
