just purchased a used firecat and am in the process of upgrading the rest it currently has an overdraw on it which i will remove for the new rest but not sure what type of rest i want to install definitely has to be a fall away as the accuarcy is unparrelled what brands do other martin shooters prefer? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Limb Driver by VaporTrail, one of the easiest drop aways to setup and tune. Been using them for several years now without any problems.

I use the Trophy Taker Extreme drop aways on 3 of my hunting bows, and a NAP Apache on the other. Can't say a bad thing about either of them. The NAP does seem to be a bit noisier, but nothing significant enough to worry about even for hunting. Welcome to the forum!

Ultra Rest by QAD is a good rest, I hear apache is also good.

sorry i havent gotten pixs up yet i will soon took her out to the range today got her tuned and i have to say shes a tack driver 2 inch groups at thirty just a shade under 3 at forty yards she is a bit on the loud side but with that kind of accuracy i think i can live with it im a martin convert for sure especially if the new bows are as accurate as this old girl is
also every one said she was a sharp looking bow

I have a Code Red on a Martin Cheetah and it works 100%

I like the Trophy Takers with the Martin lock mounts....

Noticed elkslayer4x5's quote from Jeremiah Johnson. "Skin that one and I'll get ya another." One of my all time favorite movies....
