the martin dumps on the overpriced, heavy as an anvil, much hyped mathews. the martin has the better brace height, better price tag, lighter carrying weight, and for all intents and purposes goes just as fast.

the martin is an inherantly more accurate bow becase of the longer brace height, more affordable, some 50% less price, and is more user friendly for hunters because of its weight.

so in all fairness......martin dumps on mathews....FROM A GREAT HEIGHT!!!

hows that for a first post? lol

I have to agree. The other thing I notice is that the other "M" bow seems to have just "invented" the dual cam concept.
