No responses must be a good thing.

i think you should tell us how you like it. we cant respond if we like it and we dont own one:). i did look at one before i purchased my firecat, it sure has a small ATA. id think it pretty nice to stalk with. so tell us, hows it shoot?

Just got it on Tuesday and it is not set up yet. I should have my rest and sights by next Monday. I shot it and the moab at a local shop and like them both. I went with the Firhawk because of the short ata. I will let you all know how she shoots when I get it set up and run some arrows through it.

OK got the bow set up and shooting. It shoots very well and seems to be fast. The role over is pretty tough (first dual-cam bow I have had) but the backwall is solid as a rock. Can't wait to go hunting with it.

I Love mine had it for 4 months Shots great ,Im getting 303 FPS at 70 DW 29 DL before i just tuned it haven't had a chance to test since i tuned,Only thing i can see might be a problem is string[serving ] Rubbing,but is not that bad if u keep it waxed,also if u ever replace your cables for some reason ,go with a little smaller diameter Strings,and that will fix any rubbing,but I love this bow ,I've had may different brand bows in the past and i like this bow the most.Also Martin custumer service is great,they really back there bow,Welcome to the Martin Family;)

dakota strings is having a closeout sale... might not be the colors you want, but I hear they are pretty good strings, and you can prolly get what you want for less than 50 smackers...


http://www.stonemountainbowstrings.com/Closeoutlist.htm

that is the lists, with sizing, on closeout

here is where you order:

http://www.shopatron.com/products/category/658.0.1.1.1982.0.0.0.0

I use barracuda strings, so I can't vouch for these, but this is what martin puts on their premium bows... maybe someone here will have some thoughts

the dakotas are prestreched at 800lbs which helps with readjustment and stretching... the extremestrings mentioned above are stretched at 300lbs, definately something to consider, if you are shooting high weight arrows.

Haven't been around in a while. Thanks for the info on the strings guys. Also are you guys using a quiver? If so wich quiver are you using. I just got a Trophy Ridge Cage 1 but it will not mount to the bow. Any help would be great.
