Just got some more info about Martin. Thought I'd post it here as it has nothing to do with technical aspects of bows.

Whoa, that's just depressing. Hits home, don't it? Kinda makes all this other talk seem a little more real, ya know? :( Thanks for the info Barry.

Was wondering if something was up. Watched Spirit of the wild a few days ago & Uncle Ted was shooting and plugging Mathews. Sad day for sure.

Ted was announced jumping to Mathews a while back. No big deal though. Ted shoots a lot of different bows, just like many he also plugs what pays.... And no Nugent fan here, I could care less what the Motor Mouth Madman shoots or promotes. Dang, he's great, just doesn't know when to shut up.....

Gotta agree Sonny. I've never been one to be influenced by any body else's opinions and Ted just has never impressed me. He does serve a purpose in the archery world as he has many followers, just not me. Especially since he has moved to that other "M" brand.

This is sad news for sure.
Barry,
You wouldn't happen to know anyone that works inside the machine shop at Martin would you?
If so do you think that person might happen to have a copy of the cnc program for the Septer V risor on a flash drive that they had by mistake?
Just wondering.....;):cool:

No Don, I didn't personally know anybody working for Martin. My dealings were always with Joel in the warranty dept and we always had some friendly conversations when I had reason to call. Sorry I can't help more.

thanks Barry, good find. Definitely hits a soft spot, I grew up not 20 minutes from Walla Walla and Martin was a rockstar in the community back then. :(

I found an issue of Archery Trade Magazine from a couple years back when Martin had their 60th anniversary. In the interview, Gail Martin was talking about one of their secrets to success being conservative financial practices. He said they owned all their assets, including paying cash for the new water jet limb cutting machines they had just acquired to improve the limb quality...

If Gail was talking about the kind of water jet like the new one I just got at work, I know where all their money went.
Mine was just a little over $650,000.00

Yeah it is.
I will be going to Tacoma Wa. for a week for trainning. Wish Simon lived closer.
This is the top of the line from Flow Jet.
It is the Mach 4. It has a full 5 axis cutting head on it. It will cut in every position except upside down.
It has a full 10x18 cutting surface.
This is the baby they are getting.http://www.flowwaterjet.com/en/waterjet-cutting/cutting-systems/mach-4/cutting%20systems/Mach%204c%20Models.aspx

Anybody got any news as to how the meetings have went this week with the potential buyers? Maybe the fact the site is back up is a good sign.... (I may be reading too much into it though LOL)

I don't believe this site is related to how Martin is doing. Ken (admin) took care of the hacker(s) and turned the forum back on.
