Hey, I'm new to the forums here, so Hello everyone. My Name is Nate, My question is I ordered a 2012 Onza on the 18th I was wondering if anyone knows the ETA to recieve it in the mail. I live in Wa and the dealer said he was going to have it drop shipped here. But being that im so excited I can't stop thinking about the dang thing. Anyways I'll be here more often and hope to get to know you guys better. Cheers
Nate

Welcome to the forum Nate & congrats on the Onza. I'd guess it'll be showing up next week, 2 weeks shipping time is normal.

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on the new bow! If you can't tell from my sig, I'm a little biased lol.

Delivery will depend on where they are in the manufacturing and order process; if they have the model you ordered on hand it will be pretty quick (got mine in less than a week, I got lucky and I also live in WA.) If they have to produce the bow it would take a little longer. Hope that helps!

Welcome and congrats on the new bow. I am sure your excited. I pick up my Cougar FC last week and cant wait to get the chance to shoot it. I got it paper tuned this morning so now I just need to get the sight mounted and I will be good to go.

Post up some pics when you get it together. We always like drooling on our keyboards..........

Congrats on the new Onza. I've had mine for just over a year and have not regretted the purchase.

I love both my Onzas. Handles like a hunting bow, shoots like a target bow. Best of both worlds.

Hang in there! It will show up before Turkey season, I hope! By this time, could have driven down and picked it up. I'm sure that it would have been easier on your nerves. :)

I wish I could of done that. All I do is sit by my front door like a dog waiting for a bone.

Here in Washington we arent allowed to use expandable broadheads.

I was looking at QAD....by the way has anyone tryed one of those Ulta-Noks? I like the idea but havent tryed em out yet.

Take a look at a Ripcord or G5..........because of the bridge its kind of tough getting one to fit plus not having the pull cord rub the bridge..........limbdriver is a good option too.........my next one will be a G5.

I have QAD Ultrarest HD installed in my Onza 3. Fits without trouble and the cord does not rub the bridge. Actually the one detail I would be worried about is the thicker string stop bar of the 2012 model: does it allow the attachment piece of the cord on the cable to pass? My Onza 3 has a thinner string stop bar.

Thas good info to have, I tried to put a QAD on mine and the string would not clear, could you post some pics of the instalation?

Matrix, stay away from the Ultra Nocks and just use a D-loop. The Ultra nocks can cause some problems.

As has already been stated, do not under any circumstances ibstall one of those UltraNoks or other meatal nocking point on your bow. The only acception is the crimp on brass nock sets. The reasons are many and a search on here and Archery Talk can explain the why's.

Ya LOL, I think I'll stay with the regular string loop after reading some reviews...Thanks guys.

Whats everyone recommendations on stabilizers?

I hope you will like your Onza III. I currently have three martin Bows a Fire Cat 400, Cougar Fury Cam and the 2012 Pantera. Two bows have the Limb Drive Standard and the Pantera has the LD Pro. I can tell ya I've never had any issue with LD drops (Bullet proof, CK there web out and videos on there products). Also have the NAP Apache Stabilizer and it's working out great for all my bows. I did replace the STS string stop with a BowJax Macdaddy stopper and it made a really noticeable difference in vibration, almost zero. The only real issue I've had is fletching clearance injunction with the cables on both the Fury Cam but think so far I have that the fixes is with a Sanders Hyper slide and turning the top feather slightly to riser's side. Again welcome and you can't go wrong with Martin and the CS.

I have the Alpine Archery MR2, and have had no issues... it's a short weight forward stabilizer with removeable weights.

Very nice looking bow - also in black (have one with a camo finish myself)!

Did it come with that teflon cable slide factory installed? If so, that is a good little update. My 2011 model came with a cable slide made of ordinary plastic (I have already ordered that same teflon piece to replace it).

LOVE IT! It's crazy when you see other people's bows and you realize how bad you would like one! I keep thinking about inventing this time machine so I could possibly go back in time and purchase an Onza a few months ago. Still very happy with my Alien, but these bows have been growing on me big time since last year and even more-so now that people are putting up pictures of these 2012s!

The shooting begins tomorrow!! I'll give it my review a soon as possible. I do have a question though, I ordered a left handed onza also and they shipped 2 right handed onzas. Do I need to contact the dealer or Martin? On the outside of the box it says left Onza but in side it was right handed.

To be honest, I don't know if its teflon or not. How do I tell?

Sounds like they sent you mine. I'll just send you my address and we can fix this small problem. :D

I can tell by how it looks. It is this model, available also as a separate accessory:
