I have looked and found now where to register a new bow with Martin. If anyone knows, are you suppossed to register your bow? and if so How?

I never have, and it hasn't created any problems for me on returns or getting parts.

Nope, unlike some of the competition, Martin doesn't require registration for warranty work... they just cover it because it's theirs. Makes sense to me; I own up to my mistakes shouldn't a company own up to theirs? :cool:

The only thing necessary is to staple your sales receipt to the inside front cover of the owner's manual in case you're ever asked when you bought it. Most times Martin would know just from the serial number and model name when the bow was made.

Thanks guys for the responses! it is nice to see a sports forum where members actually check the forum regularly. I just purchased an Exile 2011. I will post a thread reviewing the bow once it is all set up, and dialed in.

I wouldn't say some of us check in regularly. There are xseveral of us that just about live on here. I try to keep my daily regiment to under 4 hours here. I'm on AT and 3 other archery forums as well, but the friendly nature of these guys here gets addicting.

To anyone interested,I purchased the bow from KM Archery, through Ebay. I bid on it and won. I am almost embarrassed to say how cheap the actual price was. KM is a Martin Dealer, and they were very good to deal with. They are located in Washington, probabily not to far from Martins home office.And no I have no stock in KM, or any special interest in plugging them, other than the fact that I got a really good deal, on a bow that I think will turn out to be a good shooter. The Tech I spoke with was very responsive, He installed the right length draw, installed a peep(of MY CHOICE) and installed a nock. There was no charge for the peep or nock. the total service charge for the above work was...........$2.00.......yes $2.00 I even double checked with him about the cost.
Once I get it fully set up, by a local Martin dealer I would be more that happy to do a full review, and post pictures.

Don't hate me for this, but the cost was $232.17 delivered.....and don't forget the $2.00 for the peep, nock and installation of the right draw length...for a total of.....$234.17 If you keep an eye on the auctions on ebay, and bid on a bow sold from an actual bow shop , this kind of thing can happen. I mentioned KM, because they have no reserve on any of the many Martin bows they auction.
I told the local Martin dealer the price. His response was " that is cheaper than the dealer cost" the best part is the bow was built on 11/21/11 according to the Martin box it was shipped in, so it doesn't have the TRG. It has the standard cable guide...one less problem to have to think about.
