Default Why did you miss? Was it you? I'm betting it was your bow!

Anybody see this commercial? I laugh everytime it comes on, finally a commercial that gets me, I've been blaming my equipment for my short comings for years lol

Makes Ya wonder the clown that gave the final approval on that commercial. I'm sure Prime makes a good bow but it's not any bows fault you shot 16" over top of a mule deer at 25 yards lol

Reality check. They don't make commercials to make you happy. But some marketing guy who understands such things created the marketing strategy to sell some bows. It has been around for a couple of years so it must have some impact or they would have gone down a different route. No different that Bowtech and there " Refuse to follow" or Hoyts " Get serious" campaign.

Bought my Prime before the ad campaign but I know I have not missed since I bought it and my brother still misses with my old Bowtech. Coincidence, I don't know

That's a good commercial! But it doesn't motivate me to buy a prime, I got too serious after I bought my Hoyt! Lol!

I saw that commercial and laughed. I've shot Prime for 3 or 4 years now but it sure wasn't that commercial that convinced me. lol

The commercial is meant to get people talking about the brand. They had to do something different than the PSE/bowtech/Hoyt etc commercials that were copies of each other for the past 10 years.

Seems like it worked

It's not working, I know the commercial but not the brand.
I thought it was Elite or something like that.
And no, it's not the bow.

That's where this is humorous....APA bows are built using Bowtech technology...so technically, you are following...therefore no refusal necessary

Whether you like it...or admit it, APA followed Bowtech
