hi folks i'm looking for info and maybe someone out there can help. I've recently purchased a martin recurve bow its second hand and has Gail Martins signature on it, its dated 1995 and has the numbers 5170, the wood grain is a stunning black and tan on the riser and the limbs are black glass. it has a great cast my POC and pine arrows fly a flatter traject than other one piece hunters i've used. All i'm looking for is any info on these bows as unfortunately Martin bows are not as common in England as they deserve to be thanks for your help

Is it a 3 piece bow or a "take-down recurve"? If it is, sounds like its a Hatfield take-down recurve.

Thanks for you reply TylerB but its a one piece bow very similar to the traditional martin hunter and i've found a picture of it on the web but no info why its signed by Gail Martin i was thinking it could be of limited production or something thanks anyway buddy
