Love mine nothing on it feels cheap, draw length is so easy to set to your perfect draw, it holds on target like a longer a2a bow, its not fast but has plenty of speed, vibration free. it will be in the woods with me in the fall. You have to watch the cam though maybe have bfisher set your draw length up, because if you have the drawstop set to far it will eat your cables like it is its job. but overall a great investment i feel you cant go wrong.

Helped a friend set his up, it is a sweet bow. It shoots and holds very well, just as Wilt had said. It's quiet and although we didn't put it through my chrono, it was flinging his arrows with authority. I think is a great bow to consider.

I think this thread speaks for itself, first season with the Bengal and I harvested the best buck of my archery history.

I bought my son an 2012 bengal pro and we both love it.

Here's my thread on his bow with pics.

I've shot the bejesus out of this since I've first made this video ... it's one heck of a bow and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. I had an Alien X at the time, just purchased it before I was lucky enough to get the Bengal ... the X is no longer in my possession if that helps with anything.

Message me whenever and I can go over some more stuff with you if you want. Last time I chrono'd I was getting about 275, but have made some changes since and have yet to really get deep into tuning it, setting up a custom string etc. When all that is done and settled I'll get it back on the chrono to see where it sits. I'm confident I can get more out of it.

I've set up a few Bengals. The Bengal has been one of Martin's top bows for I don't know how long.

Bows in general and humans in general, only shooting one will you really know. I've shot a lot of bows that I didn't care for, but they shot great.

Bengal in it's more modern configuration (parallel limbs and smooth cam) has been around since 2007. It was a best seller for several years with the cam being modified and some machining adjustments to the riser. Martin seemed to hit a home run with this bow and it's only gotten better since it's debut.

Amen! I have had a 2007 and now a 2010! hard bow to beat. Might have to buy a 2012!
