Well, after many months of researching the huge amount of info out there on bows, arrows, releases, bow packages, cases, buying local vs buying US-yes, my eye twitch almost became a full facial twitch-I am PROUD to say that I am the owner of a new 2013 60# Bengal Pro in Skulz!! Bought through my local dealer, who has been very patient!

The forums here on Martin and over at AT have been an neverending well of info. I cannot say enough, aside from Thank you!

I'm from Thunder Bay, On Canada. It has been about 13 years since I held a bow and man have things changed. My 13 yr old son is along for this ride as well. (his bow is also a Bengal Pro). Our bows are being fitted with their accessories and tuned. We are hoping to break them in this week end at which point I will start working on Post #2..lol.

Welcome to the forum Kieth.

I've only been here as a member for a short time myself and yeah... what a wealth of info!!!

The guys here are great!

Keep us informed on how you like the bows, how they shoot for you, good or bad. Any and all input is welcomed. Also how did you have the two Bengals outfitted, sights, rests and the works.

Welcome to the site, glad that you joined us here! :) What a way to get back into archery, with the purchase of two Bengals. Great bow, has been a solid preformer ever since it's introduction, and seems to get better as the model years go by! I might be tempted to join the ranks of Bengal owners if I did'nt already have Martin's best bow!! ( for me, that is ) :D

Welcome to the forum! I have a friend with a '12 Bengal and he LOVES it! I'm sure you will too. :)

However, FYI, any post claiming to have new bows is not recognized as complete and factual without pics... ;)
