Amen Brother......... I kill stuff with a hickory selfbow and wood arrows which probably isn't even at 140 FPS. In a compound I'll take smoothness/ease of draw over speed any day.
Speed just makes ya miss faster
Well martin, props to you as it doesnt look like anyone wants better strings from the factory. You guys really made a great leap there. Sad to see the alien z go, but on the good side you are offering a 35 in ata bow with the hybrix/cat/nitros. And after 3 model years ( my az is a 2010) my az isnt obsolete. and even better, there isnt any bow out there at any price id rather shoot!! Ive looked around and no one can offer anything better! Im still giddy when i look at and shoot my bow! Well done martin. As for 2013. If your qc has been straightened out your bows should sell like mad once any residual bad rep is shed. I personally had to refit my roto cups on my ax and az. Shouldnt have had to, but now iknow its done right. Btw. one of the things that influenced my decision to buy martin was they didnt have split limbs. I still dont like split limbs. Just sayin. :)
Anyone seen anything else new yet? Getting ancy to check them out ... have a feeling gonna get a big urge for a 2013 with Nitro cams.
I really dig the cut down look of the nitro cams this year might look at that nemesis 35 but that is the only bow i really am interested in at the moment.
I like the fact Martin is making a split limb bow but don't care for the shape of them. Looks like the limbs on Bears lower line bows. Bear went away from that design and in my opinion it was for the better. Not a Bear fan but I love the Anarchy. I think split limb bows are easier to draw and are quieter than a single limbed bow. I've owned 20 different bows in the last 5 years and the Guardian was hands down the quietest and I believe the limb design and shape had alot to do with it.
Anyone know if those new roller cable guards can be purchased and bolted on my 2012 Silencer or are the risers holes machined differently?
You may not like the shape of the Bear Split limbs, but i'm here to tell you that all the bear bows that i've owned....i have not had one limb issue...and that is with a couple of thousand shots thru them each. They shape them for a reason.
Here is my list of bear split limb bow that i've owned
truth 2 - 3 times now
& now a Bear Strike...which turns out to be my favorite!!!!
Not one problem with any of them.
They have turned out to be right on IBO......smooth, super quiet!!!!!, vibe free, plenty of power!! Very accurate, especially the strike.
This is just my opinion and experience.
