Default Bow manufacturers (who really makes them)

Here's a something I am wondering about... With all the countless manufacturers of compound bows, does anyone know who truely makes the bow? Or in other words, a bow says brand XYZ but technically it is made by <insert bow company>.

I know Archery Research is owned by PSE.

Reflex bows look identical to Hoyt's, so are Reflex bows owned by Hoyt?

I'm just curious, that's all....

Hoyt is one of a very few companies that actually do MOST of their work inhouse.They have some of the more complicated annodizing subbed out and they have their cheaper glass limbs subbed out but for the most part,the rest of the bows are made inhouse.

Yes, PSE bought Browning's archery division. Initially, Browning still came up with the designs and PSE manufactured the bows for them then, everything went to PSE.

Realtree bows that is , Im sure the other realtree stuf like camo and clothes is another company , Realtree just slaps their name on a bear bow , and gets some coin off of it .

Yep, this is true as I understand it. I believe now all of the bows (AR, PSE & Browning) are made in Arizona. I have been told by phone that all three still have different design units, but all work together onsome aspects of the design and all areassembled in the sameplace.
