After a short break in his hotel in Coburg the visit program already started quickly. Byron was impressed by the plant of Bearpaw Products in Rossach. Here, at the centre of traditional archery of Europe, he enjoyed being around all the products which he is familiar with. Several times Byron stated: “I`m very impressed what you do here in Germany”.
Many products were checked by Byron carefully in the Bearpaw Products plant. Henry Bodnik explained the history of the company and also from some products. Many anecdotes of different products were told to Byron as they walked through the aisles. Particular, the bow stock with many nice longbows attracted the attention of Byron. At this location already some dealers had first contact with him.
