I have been looking at buying a Martin bow this season and noticed Dicks is selling Martin bows but none of the bow names match the Martin site, can anyone shine some incite on the subject?

IMO they're Martin bows they just put on their own name??? Dick's might put a few of their own additions on them though??

I bought Dicks Bone Hunter, its a Cheetah with the same specks, it has the bronze Acu-Track cam, limb pockets and idler and comes in a ready to shoot package.

Dicks bows are the Gold Line of Martin bows, just a name change. Not sure which is which name wise, but you can compare riser cutouts, and probably get a good idea of what's what.

If someone could compile a list it might help. :)

I got the Dick's Trophy Hunter and it is a Martin Saber. It has Trophy Hunter on one limb and Martin on the other. It's easy to figure out which one it is. Just write down the specs and take a pic of the one you are looking at and then just on Martin's sight and look at the Gold series. That's how I found mine.
Hope this helps!

Dicks Sporting Goods Martin bows = Martin bows

Rack Rage = Pantera
Trophy Hunter = Saber
Bone Hunter = Cheetah

I don't know if there is any others by Dick's, because all the website showed was the first two.

Most of Dicks bows are price at $399. You can find the same New bows on Ebay but a little cheaper.. The names of the bows on ebay are the same as the catolog names on this site.Maybe you find a better deal. But 399 isn;t a bad price. I'm just a bargain shopper.:D

Wildcat = Jaguar with M-Pro mini cam/limbs. (per discussions here)

If you wait a few weeks they'll likely be on clearance, I got mine less than half price last year.

Good point. Look at the serial number on the limb sticker. The first two numbers designate the year of manufacture.

I recently purchased a 2011 Martin Rack Attack - 60th Anniversary edition - from Dick's Sporting Goods. It has the same specs as a Martin Exile. I called Martin and they said its the same exact bow but just Dick's brand. The only difference is the SOS system is an upgrade on the Exile and the Rack Attack comes standard. The bow also came with a 3 pin site (cheap), a whisker biscuit (nice), and a 6 arrow quiver (nice). The bow was $399.99, and with a 20% coupon, I got it for $319.99. You can't beat that. This is my 3rd Martin bow (lifetime) and this one is by far the best. Happy 60th anniversary to the greatest bow makers on the market.

Yeah you definitely have to look over the year really good because some of them sit on the rack for quite a long time! And look over the bow because sometimes they will get dry fired people at dicks don't really pay great attention to what's going on! I have a 2010 bone Hunter AKA cheetah and I love it!
