On Martin's website check the 2008 bows. Most likely, with the MPro cam and 30.5" it's the Cheetah (M-87).

Report back so I can help others. I don't go to Dicks.

I am somewhat new to Martin bows, but have been looking at there site a ton lately -being laid off- and a lot of other archery sites comparing their bows. I saw on one of the sites, not sure which now, that martin has a line of bows for dicks only. I was assuming that these were lower to middle of the road bows at a good price point made to be sold at Dicks only. Again Im no expert but I did notice these a couple of weeks ago.
I also noticed that my local MC Sports store has a "Bear" compound bow package called the Omni if I remember right. and it is specially packaged at a low price and not in the "normal" bear lineup on their website. My point is that I think some bow companies make a line of bows just for a good price at large retail stores.
I hope this helps at least a little, if Im incorrect anyone else is welcome to add their 2 cents !!!

You're right. A lot of companies do this. Even Mathews and Bowtech are doing it, with Mission bow and Diamond bows respectively.

Martin's got Rytera, and Hoyt has Reflex.

I think the bow at dicks is specific to that store chain. Basspro has martin too.

I found it , I must of over looked it before its on the Tech info , under Dicks Sporting Goods Monster Buck Hunter , all the specs look right but the fps. my paper work said 310 fps , the tech info says 300 fps , that dont matter to me because i have yet bought one that was actually rated what they said it was , i'll definitly say for a complete package deal of $369.00 that Bow was really worth it , only thing i changed was the sight i put on a 6 pin Copper John Dead Nuts 2 and i replaced the prong rest with a Quick Tune Micro adjust prong rest with the roller bearings the one that came with it has bushings and it had way to much play in it , its a consistant shooting Bow , it also came with a 8'' Carolina Archery 8'' stabilizer and a 4 arrow quiver .thanx for you guys help ......................Mark

Slightly wrong there Alec. Rytera is the really upscale offshoot from Martin. Rytera only has two bows in the lineup and they are "up there".

Oops!:o Got to do more homework apparently.

So these bows are Target, or what?

Target or hunting. The Triad has a bridged riser similar to the Hoyt bows. The Bullet X is more conventional. Either can be had in target colors or camo. Don't hold any of this as solid info for 2008. There's supposed to be some major changes----whenever.

The Bullet X has a very similar appearance to the Pantera, MOAB line. They share many of the same parts , such as limbs and such.

Looked at rytera.com last night. Sweet bows. Are these the 08 lineup? if so, THYEY STILL GOT NITROUS X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D:):cool::eek:

The ATA was on, so the new ryteras should be out which is what is making me thing that these are the new ones, unless of course the website has yet to be updated in which case I can do nothing more than sit back and cross my fingers in hopes that they will in fact still have Nitrous X cams available, in which case I will consider ordering some.

I haven't seen the '08 lineup yet, but take it from me.Don't look for anything with a Nitrous cam. Martin even quit making the Nitrous. I'm actually thinking they'll come up with some derivitive of the Cat Cam, so look for binary cams on it. Maybe they'll offer the Furious cams and Furious X as an alternative for a target setup.

Martin does not show a WildCat in either their 2007 or 2008 catalog. In fact, I've been with Martin since 2004 and they never showed one in their catalog. It's possile it's one of those off-shoot bows made for chain stores.

Where did you see a WildCat?

Today at Dick's I saw the WildCats. They even have MARTIN owners manuals attached to the limbs. I took a look at one and there's a tag which explains that in the event of any problems with the bow to contact MARTIN and not the dealers. I'm planning on buying one for my son as I said in another thread. If I do, I'll post a picture of the bow and the tags too.

i've concluded that the monster buck hunter at dick's is the leopard with 55-70# limbs and m-pro cams instead of mini m-pro. look at the risers from the catalog and compare the cut-outs. i have one and it shoots great!
