I checked the picture of the red Scepter V and noticed the limbs used the green "Martin" logo.
I hope there's another color option.

I'd already have my hands on one except that I keep throwing around the idea of waiting to see if Rytera comes up with something similar.

If they can anodize the limb rockers and limb bezels in green, you would think they would do them and some cams in silver for a tournament color option.

I told them it would look hideous. Send your concerns to drew@martinarchery.com

It's just me (maybe), but to accomodate most of the bows I think logos in a silver would works better. As for the bezels and roto-cups either go with silver (polished aluminum) or just plain black as they have always been.

Personally I have and can strip the black off and use a metal polish to make them look like chrome, but the green logo isn't going to work well on a red riser with black limbs. Come to think of it, wonder what color strings come on a Scepter with red riser? DUH!!!!!!

I don't know. You misread my post. I meant to say I would have already had one,, not that I did or that I shot one. Just an educated guess, but with it's longer a2a (40")`it should, with the 1.5 cams, draw just a bit smoother than my Alien Z (36"). Truth be known I never know just what my bows are going to feel like. My last 26 bows have all been ordered, sight unseen and not shot prior to ordering. I just know what I like and what I like is not SHORT.

To be fair it wasn't Drew that made the decision...but he's the guy that might be able to fix it!

just one of them things.not evryone can be pleased.im sure there are people out ther who dig the green sticker and roto cups,and we got people who dont like it.all and all a black marker can take care of it,lol..but what really matters is that the 2012 line up is looking good.cant wait to get my hands on a new bengal come taxreturns.

question.can a guy buy a bow from the factory if he where in that area.or is it dealer only buys?

We might be in luck. Looking at the 2012 catalog the only bow showing the green roto's and bezels is the Bengal. All the others are black. I'd rather have black and when and if I order a Scepter I will specify as such. Red riser, black limbs, and black everything else. Now if we can only get those decals changed on the limbs. It's either that or green and red strings. I'm still waiting to see what Rytera shows up with.

a little early for christmas, eh?

somehow just thinking about red and green string combo gets me a bit queasy...
