I have a (Martin, of course :D ) bow that I bought from a friend back in '04. He won it in a raffle and neither he nor I know what year/model it is. :confused: The lower limb tag only has the following info on it:
Peak weight- 70#
Let-off- 75%
String length- blank
Cable length- blank
Draw length- 28-30"
Bow #- 9581

The riser has the Martin logo and a tiger head on it. Any way to i.d. this bow?

Tim I am thinking it is a Jaguar. Can you take a pic of the bow! This will help out with the cam type and bow Modle. Dl the pic from your camera to your PC then Upload the pic on www.photobucket.com and copy and paste the [IMG] link to your next post. Then we can go from there and help you out Quickley!:cool:

Also the serial # on the bow should be something like 043759202

I don't find a serial # anywhere on the bow- all #s are written in red ink on the Martin tag. I thought the tigers head on the Martin logo might mean something... :confused: I'll try to take some pics but I'm not very good- might have to wait till my daughter gets back tomorrow. Thanks.

Hey. I have a picture for you. Maybe it is the same bow.

You will find also all information you need if you want to change cables and strings. ;)

Thanks, Montalaar, but I don't think that's it. I'm going to try to post a pic of the cam and of the logo.

Hey, it worked. :eek: Thanks, Jen (she talked me thru it over the phone).

maybe some of the others will know it but can you post a picture of the whole riser.

Great pictures i must admit. Most users are not able to make a picture that is not absolutely blurred.

Try the 2003 Jaguar. Same logo and same design. ;)

Edit:

Your Cam is the Z-Cam

"Z Cam (Standard Limbs)
Draw Length 25" - 31"
Shooting String 56.5"
Split String 39""
