    Where is the best bow place/shop in AKL

    My soon to be 8 year old is keen on a recurve for his birthday, he to's and frow's between left and right handed so need to go to someone who can check him out to see what's going to fit him. Any recommendations?

    Attitude archery
    https://www.facebook.com/AttitudeArchery/
    Just sorted out my son before Xmas (he's 7).

    Run by Mike and Linda http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/loca...t-world-champs
    They run the shop from home in West Harbour till the new building is built.

    Excellent service.

    Check his eye dominance and work off that. Attitude dont do recurves (or they never used to)and advanced are pricey so if you are really after a recurve it's hard to beat archery warehouse as he specialize in recurve gear

    When I was into bowhunting/archery, I used to go to Arrowhead Archery in East Tamaki. The guy's name is Trevor Irvine and I'm pretty sure he's a World Champion. He knows what he's doing and always helpful. Their website was/is Arrowhead Archery - archery experiences for everyone | Arrowhead Archery, coaching, competitions for shooting adventures.
    I used to have a handle on Life - but it broke.

    I was going to add another to the mix, archery imports. I dont think they have reopened because of a move though.

    Trevor moved north so so have some way to go to get to arrowhead archery. Given the options, I would go to archery warehouse based on price (on average).
