View Full Version : G-1 camo finish flaking

10-27-2009, 04:13 PM
I have a 09 Martin Saber. I have enjoyed the bow thus far, but the G1 camo finish is flaking off mostly around the grip area, but on the riser as well. Is this a common issue?

Thanks in advance!

I have an 09 Cheetah and dont have any problems with it, I havent seen any threads to suggest that is a common issue, might give martin a call and ask, sounds like a warranty thing as long as there are no signs of misuse or abuse. if you can post a picture please do.

I have the same bow and the finish on it is flaking as well. Actually it was flaking when I brought it home from the store, I just didn't notice it until I got home.

My 08'Firecat is losing the finish in the grip area also.But it isn't the new cameo. Just thought it was cause I shoot every day around a 100 arrows a day. Looks bad to me but my buddy didn't notice it till I pointed it out. Might just strip it and have it powdercoated black.
