My 2010 Firehawk has a sticker that says "Made in USA", is the bow manufactured in the USA out of parts that are made in US or imported?:confused:

All bows have some imported components, I don't think any bow manufacturer makes the e-clips, axles,etc. There was a good post on Archerytalk that explained what is needed to be classified as made in the USA.

Welcome to the forum. :)

Think I may have read part of it. Overall, I like the bow. It's fast 315fps, quiet and short axle to axle length, 30 inches. I hunt ground blinds a lot and length can be a killer. The hard part is finding a local dealer that has a descent selection of pro series bows in stock. Easy to find Hoyt and Mathews. Even Bow Tech. Martin is harder to find in western/central NY.

Neils archery in endicott ny carries martin. I dont know how long that will be, they seemed displeased with the 2011 line and the techs were pushing the owner to drop the line. I remember a few places in elmira and owego that carried them if that helps.

Thanks for all the dealer info. I wasn't aware that so many people were disappointed with the 2011 lineup. The only "problem" I see is that the bows tend to be getting longer axle to axle again. I prefer a short bow. Just my personal preference though.

martin had a prob with the trg manufacturer's material and has actually been shipping their bows with a standard cable guard and slide. if u do use the trg, make sure u sand smooth the mold marks in the center, that ridge will cut into ur cables.

Mike is a good guy. He sold me my Firehawk. Going to see him tomorrow to pick up 1/2 dozen arrows.
