I have shot fingers style for 45 years and to stubborn to change to release. i have shot tundra bows the last 10 years but hate having to travel over 300 miles to my dealer. i see there are several martin dealers in kansas so i am looking at switching to martin. has anyone shot fingers with the Sceptor Vpro? it looks like it is fast and has some nice features.

I do not use a mechanical release on my 2011 ShadowCat 2011, and my wife is the same with her 2011 CrossFire.

I have been shooting Martin bows with fingers since 1976. I have just switched to a release due to arthritis two years ago. The shortest ATA I have shot is a Fury, no problems shooting any of them, you will not regret shooting them, fine, smooth, quiet, and great customer service. Good luck and great hunting.

The scepter has a very smooth draw and release. I am shooting a carter with it, but I also shoot a recurve.
The smoothness of the nitro cams should do well for finger shooters. Also with 80 percent letoff you wont kill your hands holding the
bow at full draw.

fyi stay way from the fury cam, with its valley it could jerk your string right off your fingers.

The Scepter 4 series anf the Mystics are excelent finger bows especially with the shoot thru system .
