About us

GRAY Archery is the story of a lifetime of innovation and experimentation by an avid archer. Graeme Lindner, the founder of GRAY Archery, found his love for archery at a very young age, making bows out of palm tree leaves and car springs alike.

Growing up, Graeme had the opportunity to use his father’s workshop and let his imagination soar. This soon led to a love for all things mechanical and eventually a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Pretoria in 2010, with his final year thesis consisting of designing a multi-length, multi-sided recurve riser as well as the design of a shooting machine.

In 2012 he represented South Africa at the World Indoor Championships in Las Vegas, as well as the All African Continental Champs where he obtained the title of African Commonwealth Champion in the recurve men division.

At the African Championships, Graeme experienced stabilizer equipment failure not once but twice, and this was the start of Gray Archery. When Graeme returned to South Africa he made it his mission to design better and stronger equipment for himself using his skills as a mechanical engineer.

The first prototype of Gray Archery was created on the 17th of November 2012; a 33inch 2.5 mm wall thickness model S1.3. Since then, top recurve and compound archers have taken notice of the superior quality that comes hand-in-hand with the handcrafted stabilizers produced by Gray Archery and have purchased equipment that is customised specifically to their needs.

GRAY Archery believes in constant product innovation, as well as having a personal relationship with its customers, ensuring customer satisfaction.
