Well, if I were in the market for a new bow and wanted one of thse then I'd look real hard and probably order one. Sure they are 1 or 2 years old, but there isn' that much difference between these and the newer ones to spend a lot more money.

This afternoon I went to Dick's Sporting Goods to check out them bows they are carrying. I'm planning to buy a new bow for my oldest son (16) which he already outgrown his Parker Buckshot and he's ready for a 60-70 pound bow. So they have a full packaged ready to shoot 29" 70# Wildcat for $269.
I think this is the same bow as the Cheetah or Bengal??? :confused:
If it is, I'm buying it tomorrow first thing. If not,..... I'll still buy it! :D

Just be careful and make sure he's nopt going to be overbowed. There isn't a thing walking this planet that 60# won't kill. 70# isn't always necessary. For most it's an ego thing.

I know what ya' mean. Thanks for the concern! I totally agree with ya', 60# is plenty. Good thing the bow is rated from 55#-#70, but I wanted to finally buy an adult bow which he can have for years to come. He outgrown his Parker since last year which it's up to 28" and he's 29" now. He's a strong 5'10" wrestler built boy and will be 16 in July.

I came back and finally bought the "Monster Buck" model. 55#- #70 with M-Pro cam. Full packaged for $319.00 Can anyone tell me which MARTIN bow is it??? Cheetah, Bengal or Leopard ??? Thanks!

Here are some pics:

i've got the exact same bow. i've concluded it's the leopard riser with 55#-70# limbs and m-pro cams. the bow is the 2007 model (silver cams). you can compare the riser cut outs shapes and locations/shapes of the vibration elimination modules. some people don't agree with me cuz some specs are the same as the cheetah but seeing is believing. By the way i love my bow. added limsaver accessories, g5 expert drop away rest, s-coil stabilizer, string suppressor. etc.

Measure the ATA and compare it to the 2008 catalog. I have to agree with Doberman. The bow's riser is the Leopard.

Yes it is the Leopard riser, but with the Bengal's limbs and cam.

Yesterday my son had a grin smile after he came from school and found his new bow on his bed. We got the peep installed and went out for him to shoot a few arrows and adjust the poundage to 60 pounds of draw weight which he was most comfortable with and also got the sight fairly set.
I was really impressed on how smooth this bow draws and mostly how quiet it is. Also good speed for been at 60# shooting 28" VAPOR PRO 400's 7.6gr/inch arrows.

Well after some tweaking and tuning over the weekend, my son and I got his bow ready. It's amazing how quiet this bow is and how well and comfortable my son shoots it and needless to say,... accurate!! :cool:

"They" say: the "proof is in the pudding" so here are some pics of how he's shooting:


First three shots at 10yrds:

I thought I should share this with y'all since I opened this topic about my son's bow,....
Finally, last Saturday my son shot his first deer.:D A nice seven pointer. I'm glad I bought this bow for my son. :cool: He nailed both lungs at 20 yards and from a blind.
