Nearly four years ago I made a call to Steve Speck at S&S Archery. I had been shopping for a bow sight and stumbled upon Black Gold sights on the S&S website. I had some questions about the product, and there was a phone number on the website, so I figured I’d place a call and see if I could get some help. Although I had no idea who Steve was at the time (and he definitely didn’t have an idea of who I was), he was incredibly friendly, helpful, and even talked me out of spending some money on custom options that I didn’t need for my sight.
I ordered the site through Steve, used it for quite a while, and eventually reviewed it here on Sole Adventure. Steve and I stayed in touch throughout the years. He has helped me learn about elk hunting, given me the chance to be an early tester for a broadhead that he designed, and I have had the opportunity use my skillset to help him on some projects. But what matters more than hunting, gear, and business, is that Steve is now a friend.
Last month, I officially accepted a part-time position to work for Steve. S&S Archery is gear for backcountry bowhunters, from backcountry bowhunters. And I’m proud to be a part of it.
I wanted to share this with you guys for several reasons. First and foremost, I never want there to be anything that could be considered “shady” about this site. I have some product reviews coming up soon, and S&S happens to carry some of those products. I’m not reviewing these products because I’m simply trying to make sales for S&S. For example, I have been using the Scott Exxus archery release for two years. The review is a long-time coming and is a product of my real world experience. I happen to use a lot of gear that S&S carries (First Lite clothing, Black Gold and CBE bow sights, Solid Broadheads, TightSpot Quivers, etc.), and I’ve been using much of this gear for several years – well before I was associated with S&S Archery.
But I am also sharing this news with you because I do want to see S&S Archery grow. If you are in the market for First Lite apparel, hunting optics, archery and bowhunting accessories, backpacking gear, and more, then I would love for you to consider giving your business to S&S Archery. We will have a new website launching in the coming months, as well as expanded product offerings.
If there’s anything that I can do to answer questions, please let me know.
