The Focus Grip helps minimize hand torque in the event of poor hand placement by keeping pressure concentrated in the center of the grip, unlike typical flat top grips that move pressure to the outside edge which increases hand torque. The diagram shows the result of improper hand placement and how it impacts bow torque. As you can clearly see, the Focus Grip with the patent pending “Focus Ridge” barely moves off of center! Available for right hand in red and white.
Mathews The Company
Located in Sparta, Wisconsin, Mathews, Inc. currently employs a staff of nearly 400 people and operates three local facilities to support a diverse line of archery equipment, bow components and accessories for authorized retailers all over the world. Our success is predicated on our commitment to three steadfast core values: innovation, integrity and impact.
Mathews Core Values
Integrity: Our desire is that our actions and decisions reflect honesty, trustworthiness, respect, loyalty and accountability.
Innovation: We strive to achieve the extraordinary through the continuous improvement of people, process and product.
Impact: Our goal is to make positive, lasting impressions by caring for individuals, families and communities.
These core values shape our daily decisions and actions. They are the basis for personal accountability and for points of celebration throughout our company. Matt McPherson has stated, “nothing else is more important to me than that our company and employees live out our core values on a daily basis.” Our employees are committed to exhibiting these core values in all aspects of their daily work and management is committed to supporting their personal and professional growth as they do so.
Integrity: People First, Business Second
A unique characteristic central to Mathews’ success is our commitment to integrity. Matt McPherson’s basic, yet pervasive, philosophy of “people before business” serves as an important guide for how we conduct internal and external business.
Externally, Authorized Mathews Retailers are the primary example of Mathews’ business integrity. Mathews carefully selects knowledgeable, service-oriented retailers and have rejected marketplace pressures to provide product to large retail chain stores. “By remaining loyal to our small business partners we maintain quality control through all phases of our product cycle,” Matt McPherson has stated.
Internally, putting people first has cultivated a positive working environment in which the staff is respectful, accountable and helpful toward each other. These attitudes have an overwhelming impact on job satisfaction which leads to low turnover, increased productivity and outstanding customer service.
From producing American-made bows with a lifetime warranty to providing unsurpassed customer service, Mathews proves that a manufacturer can dominate an industry while maintaining the highest level of integrity.
