Rob DiStefano as tried and tried to get him to re-design his web page....but no luck.  It really needs some help.

i was thinking about a new 21st edge model, actually talked to milton on the phone a couple of times. went on the *********** posted a thread about his bows. most of what i heard was good. my friend told me i should check on reviews. glad i did, any more info you guys could give would be helpful. sounds like i need to just forget buying one. sure havent had any luck finding a used b&j one for sale. that lets me know that they had quality and service.

I have heard alot of good things about 21st, let's see some pics.  Hard to beleive he would treat anyone like that let alone a customer, not a good selling point.  Seems straight lams and solid wood are bow-building 101.  SAD

Guess I better keep mine then  :bigsmyl:  

All I can say is,  I wish your experience had been like mine.

My LoneStar and my A&H ACS CX are my favorite shooters.

I bought a used Nova but sold it, only because the grip was a little different from the Lone Star and it was a little more weight.

Cocobolo is oily,  bubinga is dry as a bone.
Now then, get your weapons ~ your quiver and bow ~ and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27.3

I owned a Buddy&Jim longbow for years with no problems and I recently traded to a fellow that loves it and it is still a good shooter. It's a shame that a business can go downhill so bad. I don't have any intentions of dealing with a testy bowyer/dealer because there are just too many good bowyers out there that can provide great bow.

two hatchet and other brother archers. I think that most of the good reviews out there for 21st Century bows are on those bows made by Buddy&Jim. Their bows used to hold almost all the 3d championship titles. Its a sad, sad day for the reputation of 21st Century.

I am a tool and die maker and years ago I worked in Jacksonville. When I first met Jim and Buddy I knew that these where great guy's to deal with. I ended up making some fixtures for their bow building process and Jim gave me a 60" Venus in payment for all my work. I sure did love that bow. Then I ordered my first custom bow from them. It was a sweet bow! 64" 56#@28". It had a Cocobolo riser w/Bacote limbs. I sure do miss those two guys. I have been by the shop and talked with Milton for awhile but I have never shot or purchased one of his bows so I could'nt comment on on them. I truly hope he realizes that customer service is crucial to longjevity in this business!

I went to the shop several times when Jim and Buddy owned it and was an awesome trip everytime.  I went to college appx. an hour south of their shop.  Had a few of their bows during the same timeframe and kept one for several years thereafter.  Never had a problem with one of them.  Sad to hear things went drastically down hill since.

i just traded for a lone star longbow and it is one of the sweetest shooting longbows i have had
but in the back of my mind i am wondering about ordering a bow from a guy that evidently dosn't back his product up.

I own two of Milton's bows--both 21st Edge models.  Great service and great bows in every way.  Got one at Denton Hill about three years ago and ordered another last year.  Couldn't be more pleased.....Dave

This thread has a life of its own. I'm surprized the guy is still in business. Regardless, I ain't taking any chances.  :banghead:
