Is the 2012 martin Bengal Pro a good buy. I am 5'11 and have a long draw, im guessing 29 inches. I hunt from a treestand 99% of the time. Would this be the right fit?

I would say it's a great match..shorter 31" axle to axle length..and great speed(320-330 advertised FPS). Shorter axle length helps when branches in tree stands can be an issue, also conducive for ground blinds. It has a good 7" brace height for a forgiving shot in a shorter bow..it should shoot really well in those situations. They can be had very reasonably priced on the Martin website..they have tempted me as well.

Absolutely love mine. I'm a bit taller at 6'2" but my draw is 29.5 and the bow fits great. Haven't hunted with it yet, but it shoots lasers!!

I have had my 2012 Bengal Pro in Carbon Black for about a month now...I am 6'3" with a 30in draw. Bow fits great...shoots like a dream...and for the price you will not find another to compare it to. Just put a new QAD rest on it...looking forward to see how it shoots with the new rest. You will not be disappointed with this bow.
