I bought my first bow yesterday, a Martin Jaguar. It's supposed to be a 2007 model. The details:
45-60# (currently set at 50#)
Draw MP"
Bow 0682756
It shoots great - 2" groups at 20 yards for a rank amateur (I believe the bow, not me, is responsible for that).
A few questions - I would appreciate any help . . .
1. Can I tell from the number if it is a 2007 model?
2. Is the riser cast or machined?
3. Is it possible to get an Owner's Manual from Martin?
4. Has Martin stopped making the Jaguar? Any idea why?
5. What was the first model year for the Jaguar?
6. Is there anything about this bow I should know regarding setup, shooting, maintenance, accessories?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

1. Can I tell from the number if it is a 2007 model?
This would be hard to tell for sure unless you call Martin and give them the serial number. What Cam is on the Bow? This would help to narrow down the year.

2. Is the riser cast or machined?
I believe the Jag was a cast riser.


3. Is it possible to get an Owner's Manual from Martin?
I would say YES

4. Has Martin stopped making the Jaguar? Any idea why?
Yes they quit making the Jag this year, new better models.

5. What was the first model year for the Jaguar?
I believe in the late 90s

6. Is there anything about this bow I should know regarding setup, shooting, maintenance, accessories? If you have questions go to archerytalk.com it is a Martin run site with a lot of great people.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.


hope this helps you out.
