Howdy, I jusy got what is supposed to be a 2012 Onza and for some reason I think it is the 2011 is there a way to confirm my therory? The cams say Nitro 60 years and the coin on the riser says 60th anniversary. Are there any differances between the two years?

Is there any wood on the grip?

No, it is black leather and soft plastic. I just watched the video again and I think someone screwed up. My bow has the TRG and they did not show it in the clip.

The first two numbers of the serial number on the limb sticker is the year it was built, however, it could have been built in late '11 and still be a '12 model - - - -
but - - if it came with the trg/sos on it - - - then it is most likely an early or mid year 2011.
does it have a mount or hole built into the rear of the riser below the grip?

The # starts with11 and there is not hole but rather a groove w/ two tapped holes above it and quick disconnect mount below it (not the one for the stabilizer).

Sounds like you have a 2011, its a good bow I have one. I would ditch the TRG for a standrard cable slide and you are good to go! If you contact Martin about the TRG they will take care of you.

if he paid for a 2012 he should get what he paid for and not have to go threw the hassel of changing anything.

I would take it back and get refund or bow you paid for or if you like bow the difference in price.

difference the price wouldn't be a bad idea if it was from a pro shop and they hooked you up with some accessories with the difference.

I am attempting to send it back. The bad news is I purchased it off Ebay, and it will take time to ship it back and deal with the refund process. The worse news is I bought it as an early birthday gift for myself and I just got a quad rest and a new sight and will have to wait another week or two for a replacement bow. Thanks for all of y'alls input.

Did you pay 2012 price 599 ? if not I would not worry about it and just get a cable slide from martin you would be good to go.

This is true, if the cost was the same and with the upgrades that Im sure Martin will help you out with........the bows perform the same.

Mechanically there is no difference between 2011 and 2012 except that the 2011 will not accept an STS (rear mount). The 2012 comes with the carbon STS. So there is a difference. All depends on how anal you are about such things. If shipping costs isn't an issue I would work it out and return the bow for a 2012 model. You didn't get what you paid for.

Being anal about such things is an understatement. I will be shipping it back.
