Hi, for those of you who dont already know me, my name is Kev “Arrow” Smith and I would like to start off my new blog by telling you a little about RHA…
Many moons ago (2013) I founded RHA under the name “Robin Hood Arrows” with the sole aim of competing with the top arrow cresting companies found in the US.
It was a steep learning curve but through persistence and my inate sense of perfectionism (more of a curse than a gift! lol) the name of RHA quickly established a name for quality and customer service.
“…My very first set of crested arrows”!
Worlwide sales followed very quickly including:
Austria, Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom & the United States.
Social media really helped and Facebook in particular has been incredible with RHA now boasting over 4600 followers! The amount of support I have received never ceases to amaze me and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who stand behind myself and RHA!
Fast forward a few years and many sets of arrows later and the time was right to branch out.
“…It was at this point that the name was changed to “Robin Hood Archery” and in february 2017 the hard slog of business expansion was started”!
The first step was to change from a “.com” to a “.eu” to accomodate the name change. This led to the setting up of a brand new website including an online- shop and has been a huge amount of work. Luckily I could rely on a few good people who knew much more about the subject than myself!
I moved away from my old Youtube channel and a specific RHA channel was set up to incorporate tests, reviews & product launches as well as general archery shenigans. Come along and subscribe!
In this day and age Instagram is also a given for many businesses. You can find my Insta feed HERE
A look into the future!
Its taken many months to get the website up and running but in the intervening time I have had the chance to hook up with some awesome new and exciting suppliers!
I only choose the very best for the RHA Shop and luckily I am in a position to be able to “cherry pick” items that have been personally tested and endorsed by myself. If its in the shop you already know its gonna be good!
(more about my testing methods in the next blog 😉 )
Robin Hood Archery is proud to work together with…
Heritage Longbows – many more models coming soon!
Paragon Bows – Currently offering 2 models both of which are superb
Grizzly Strings – put simply – the best strings Ive ever used!
Archers Jewellery – Stunning archery related real sterling silver jewellery
Arrowhead Pendants – Hand made in Germany stainless steel broadhead pendants
All of the above suppliers are already represented in the RHA shop as well as the continued association with Bodnik bows. I will also be continuing my custom crested arrows, arrow/bow racks, slingshots and RHA bow quivers.
