I hope Martin remembers to make their bows user friendly for us guys that do our own work. The concept of not needing a bow press to work on your bow is a huge factor to figure in when buying a bow. Pro shops are a joke in my area and the nearest one is a 200+ round trip. If not I'll be shooting or buying 2012 bows instead of the newest and greatest.
I am not a fan of split limb bows and really sad to see Martin going to them.
what is it about split limbs that has some against them.
Clearly they must be better, why else would Martin start incorporating them ?
I've more split limb bows than solid...by just a couple...lol
i've had no problems with them. It is my guess that they are stronger, maybe create more fps, & quieter!
The funny thing is whenever i brought my firecat or bengals in to my local shop just to shoot in his indoor range....he would always come over and grab my bow and fire a couple of shots and throughly inspect my limbs over and say that i'm getting lucky....
Man that always had me feeling confident......................NOT!
He would never inspect my Bear Instinct, Truth, truth 2 or my Strike now.....he would shoot them though.
Some of the Old martin die hards should embrace this change........i'm sure it's for the better. Something needed to change.
I do know anytime you constantly remove and reinstall something from aluminum it wears faster than say steel. I am thinking of putting a stud in mine with a jam nut and getting a stabilizer with a female hole. That way the stress will not be on the riser every time i remove my stabilizer. I envision the QD eventually pulling through with enough times tightening down. Makes me nervous honestly but I cannot get my bow in the case with it on. I got to admit I get nervous every time I remove it.
i am thinking that the blade x4 may be my next bow. i love my threshold, deadly accurate and the price was amazing factory direct via amazon. if the blade x4 is better i caanot wait to see the price and start saving up. Good job Martin Archery. Thank you for the wonderful products!
really ready to gander over the new nemesis, love the old one too though
