    Wan & Win - Mandarin Duck?

    Hi,

    I have a new bow coming form Mandarin Duck in China (it's actually landed in London as I type apparently).

    I was told today that Mandarin Duck archery is part of Win & Win in some way!

    Is this true?

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    Not that I've ever heard. Not that that means a lot, but I have never heard of these two names being connected, nor does Google come up with any suggestion of a connection... What I'm finding suggests Mandarin Duck bows are made by Junxing in China, and you can find the same bows under different names (for example Lancaster Archery sell some of them under the Galaxy brand. e.g. this is the Black Hunter). Win & Win use the WNS brand for their entry level to mid range kit, which is also made in China. They used to make SF (Sebastian Flute) and KAP brand bows, but I believe those brands are now discontinued.

    Thank you for the replay,

    I also found bits of what you have listed above through Google and Youtube.
    I was highly sceptical of the original claim, but being both Chinese companies, and seemingly most bow manufacture being in China, it was not beyond possibility?

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    Well, it's always possible that the same sub-contractor makes kit for both, but that's not the same as being the same company...

    I have the black hunter in 40lb and highly recommend it .The only low point is it is loud untill you get a new fast flight string and some string silencers on it then its good to go

    Rob, Win & Win are a Korean company. Their history according to them. They used to make everything in Korea, but that now applies only to their top of the range products, with the rest being outsourced to China. As Rik says, it's possible that the same factories have been contracted to make products for both companies, that may be the basis of the claim.
