View Full Version : How do you identify an older Martin bow?

I have a friend who said "if you buy a bow, i'll teach you how to shoot and I'll take you deer hunting this year." So, I found a used bow and bought it. It's a martin, and I cannot see where the model or year is located anywhere on the bow.

The Martin emblem has a drawing of a tiger's face on a black background and says "MARTIN" in yellow letters. The emblem has 6 sides, and the bow has a wooden grip. There is a sticker that says "This bow assembled by William Schubert", and then there is a silver sticker with all of the bow specs, but those are nearly invisible. The section where it says "bow number" MIGHT read "9118", but it's really hard to tell. The bow is Advantage camo. There are two "bolt on" limbs. Any ideas, Martin experts?

If you register and post pics, I would bet you there are people here that can tell you exactly what it is. Welcome.
