FLORA, Miss. – Gold Tip, an industry leader in carbon arrows and bolts, is celebrating a strong finish at this year’s Sud de France – Nîmes Archery Tournament in Nîmes, France. Leading the competition were Team Gold Tip archers Jean Phillipe Boulch and Adrien Gontier who placed first and second respectively in the Men’s division. In the Women’s division, Lola Grandjean brought home a bronze medal utilizing a Bee Stinger stabilizer.

“Jean Phillippe Boulch and Adrien Gontier are two of the very best archers in France,” said Tim Gillingham, National Shooting Staff Manager for Gold Tip and Bee Stinger. “Indoor archery is a slugfest of precise accuracy where one miss can eliminate you from the competition, so Jean Phillipe and Adrien coming in first and second is a massive accomplishment.”

Boulch and Gontier were shooting Gold Tip Nine.3 Max Pro Shafts. Boulch was also using Bee Stinger Premier Plus Bars with Countervail while Gontier used Bee Stinger Microhex Bars.

“Gold Tip arrows and Bee Stinger bars are a big part of our team’s setup and success,” Gillingham said. “We have great products because they are built by archers and for archers. We’ve proven that these designs are the best on the market time after time at competitions like Nîmes.”

The Nîmes Archery Tournament is the premier indoor archery competition and trade show in Europe, attracting the best archers from across the continent. After being postponed several weeks due to health measures, the 23rd annual Nîmes Archery Tournament was held January 29-31.
