Well I was told it was when i bought it. It looked like it. Was in a hurry and forgot my tape measure. No decals on the limbs. It's an '08 ? W 32" ata and the MPro2 cam w the draw stop just like my old Cheetah. So what could it be? It shoots great and seems faster than the Cheetah. But this one is 70# and the other one was only 60#. Ideas?

Bengal would be my guess. Take a pic when you can and post it. But it could be an 09 too.

M2-Pro cam was used in '09 and '10, with a 32" ATA it should be either a Bengal or Moab; the Moab came with CCS from the factory.

Compare to the pics on the 2009 website here: http://www.martinarchery.com/2009web/compoundbows.php

The M2-Pro Cam was used in 2009, but in 2010 it was changed to the Accu-Trak cam. The Accu-Trak is very similar though.

I also believe it's either a Moab or a Bengal. Any pictures Hawg?

Correct, M2 was only in '09, Accu-track for '10-11.;)

Here's a link to the CL ad w a pic. I dont have one on my phone yet. Definitely an '08 and not the acu-trac cam. My nephew has the '10 Cheetah w acu-trac cam. It might not be be the M2 pro. Its the black one w the draw stop. http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/spo/3465657461.html

Hawg, I think you posted the wrong link. The bow in the link is a Cheetah from probably before 2000.:D

The cam you are talking about is the 2008 M-Pro.

Hawg, that's not a 2008 Cheetah. Just compared it to my g/f's '08 Cheetah. Riser cutouts are different. I'd say it's a 2008 Bengal with the M-Pro cam. I might be wrong, but from the pic, that's my best guess. I know it's not a Moab either. Compared it to mine.

I paid $150 loaded minus arrows. Still waiting on my F5 mod from SL to really start shooting it. I'd still prefer to have another Cheetah/Exile though. I shot that li'l short thing great! I'd swap in a second given the chance. Lol

Let us know how you feel after a month or two of shooting the bigger cat! LOL :D The Bengal was a very popular bow for a reason.

Oh,I believe ya! Feels good in hand,balances well. And that style Martin grip is in my top 3 favorites. So comfy and repeatable. I might have to swipe the F5 mod off my nephews Cheetah and get it sighted in and make a few adjustments if needed. Actually, i'm going on that mission now. "Recon F5". Shouldnt be hard since he's currently cookin burgers at McD's

Recon F5 mission accomplished. I wonder hoq long it takes him to realize his bow is missing. Lol! The Bengal shoots awesome! Hate the NAP 360 rest,though. At least with helical 3" blazer vanes. Might b ok w straight vanes. I need a Trophy Taker on this one,too. I've been spoiled by the TT!
